Reviews for the Acer TravelMate 8215WLMi
Source: PC Pro
The 8215WLMi is the first notebook we've seen from Acer to use the mobile version of the Core 2 Duo, bringing desktop-class performance to the venerable TravelMate 8000 range. The chassis is largely unchanged, although that's no bad thing - it offers plenty of design features whether you're sat at a desk or on the move. There's a 2GHz Core 2 Duo T7200 CPU inside, with 2GB of 533MHz RAM and a huge 160GB hard disk, which is split into two equal partitions. Acer also includes a dedicated mobile GPU in the form of ATi's Mobility Radeon X1600. Despite some welcome additions and good components, this Acer notebook is left wanting.

ATI Mobility Radeon X1600: ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 is a middle class graphic card for notebooks of the X1000 series. Its performance can be compared with NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
T7200: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
