Reviews for the Acer TravelMate 8473T-6804

80% Acer TravelMate TimelineX TM8473T laptop
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The understated style of the TravelMate TM8473T may not be to everyone's taste, but it's a notebook that offers very good value for money. It's well built, performs as expected and it has a good set of features. Most importantly, it's comfortable to use thanks to its soft keyboard and touchpad and a matte screen.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.3 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
