Reviews for the Acer TravelMate 8200

80% Dual-Core Power, Sleek Design
Source: Laptop Mag English
Acer crams two of the most powerful notebook components you can get inside the 6.6-pound, sleek TravelMate 8200: Intel’s Core Duo processor and ATI’s Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics card. Add in a top-notch webcam and you have one of the best mainstream laptops for power users, as long as you have the cash. The 8200’s tapered profile gives a deceptively skinny impression, complementing the sheen of the black-and-gray lid. The carbon fiber cover isn’t just for show; it adds durability. Like other TravelMates, the keyboard sits at a slight angle, which should provide extra comfort for marathon typists. The marquee feature of the TravelMate 8200 is its dual-core processor, the 2-GHz Intel Core Duo.

The generously equipped Acer TravelMate 8200 packs a 120GB hard drive, a unique built-in Webcam, and both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Its ExpressCard/34 slot accepts the small form factor, 34mm, though not the larger 54mm next-generation plug-in card. A SmartCard reader provides an extra layer of security. For convenience, the 8200's five-in-one memory card reader, audio ports, FireWire port, and wireless communications buttons are all located on the front of the notebook. The 8200 also features a DVD-D connection for attaching a digital flat-panel monitor. This port doesn't come with the extra pins needed to make it compatible with an analog monitor adapter, but that's okay because the 8200 has a standard VGA-port for such use.

The Acer TravelMate 8200 is one of the first Intel Core Duo laptops out of the gate. In addition to its bleeding-edge Core Duo processor, the midsize portable features a great case design and top-of-the-line components, such as a 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics chip, a mammoth 120GB hard drive, and a double-layer DVD burner. Though this sweet system delivers on the Core Duo's promise of extremely fast multimedia performance, its performance gain was less pronounced on our productivity benchmarks, making its $2,499 price too expensive for users who just want fast performance for office work. Still, the TravelMate 8200 is worth the price premium if you're looking for a well-outfitted laptop for graphic design, video editing, or heavy-duty multitasking;

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)
