Acer’s TravelMate 8371 is a no-nonsense laptop for professionals needing a business client for use while on the road. It features a decent keyboard and screen, and is a reasonable performer that does not weigh too much when carried around.

Looking for a portable business machine? It's clear the Acer TM8371 is a business-oriented machine. It packs excellent performance and oodles of battery life into a very thin, very light, but very dull frame. It doesn't win any awards for gaming performance, but we don't suspect that's what it was designed to do. The model we tested comes in, judging from a few retail websites, at around £700 right now. It's possible to get it even cheaper, albeit with a reduced set of specs - down to more like £600. If you're looking for a business laptop around that price then this is an excellent choice.

Does swapping power for battery life and mobility pay off in this business laptop? Acer's Travelmate Timeline 8000 series targets the business sector, and provides all day usability in a very compact shell. At 13.3 inches, the TravelMate 8371 is the smallest in the series. We like the Acer TravelMate 8371 TimeLine a lot. It's a great business tool with a fantastic battery life that will keep you productive for hours on end.

Earlier in the year, Acer was one of the first companies to take advantage of Intel's new CULV processors in creating affordable ultra-portables. Delivering good performance and outstanding battery life, we were delighted by the Acer Aspire Timeline 4810T and gave it a Recommended Award. If you're a businessman who has always wanted an ultra-portable but couldn't justify the expense, the TravelMate Timeline 8731 should make you very happy. Its outstanding battery life and realistic price are its best points, but it also retains enough important features that you won't feel too hamstrung.

If the Acer TravelMate Timeline 8371 were a bowl of porridge, it'd belong to baby bear. It's not so large that it'll break your back on a road trip, and not so small that you need the fingers of a four-year-old girl to operate it. It is, in principle, just right. Available in three main configurations, our mid-range review sample boasts the full product name Acer TravelMate Timeline TM8371-944G32 N, and retails for around £700. We like the Acer TravelMate Timeline 8371. It's attractive in an understated sort of way, offers strong performance and boasts good battery life. Laptops such as the MSI X340 might suit a more fashion-conscious crowd, but, all things considered, we'd rather spend our money on the 8371.

With frankly amazing battery life, lasting as long as 10 hours under light use, and some excellent specifications make this great for those on the road. We didn’t like keyboard that much but overall this is an excellent value package.

85% Review Acer Travelmate 8371 Timeline Notebook | Notebookcheck
The Slim One. In the meantime, the Acer Timeline Series is available in several configurations and case sizes, whereas a persistently slim and light design is used. Acer’s motto: mobile, efficient devices at a low price, but which have enough computing power, anyway. Can the 1.71 kg light 13.3" subnotebook, with a declared 8 hour battery life deemed for business customers, keep this promise? The following review will reveal if it can stand up to these expectations.

Acer reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.

SU9400:

Power efficient low voltage processor based on the Penryn 3M core that features all Penryn functions like Virtualization and Trusted Execution.


13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.65 kg:

This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

1.71 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


76.54%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
