Reviews for the Acer TravelMate 8571-944G32Mn
Endurance Runner? With the TravelMate 8571, Acer brings a business model of its youngest Timeline range onto the market, which is supposed to impress with a battery life of over eight hours even remote from a socket. If Acer achieves its goal or if the TravelMate 8571 is already exhausted after halfway, can as always be read in our comprehensive review.
Acer presents the TravelMate 8571, the business model for its Timeline range. The processor used in the Acer TravelMate 8571 is considerably faster than the single-core Intel Solo SU3500 used in other Timeline models. For average office workloads this is a fine machine, both at and away from your desk.

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