Reviews for the Acer TravelMate 8572T

Acer Travelmate TimelineX 8572T: All-Day-Computing im Business-Look
Source: Bios Magazine English
Das selbst gesteckte Ziel von acht Stunden Laufzeit und mehr kann das Travelmate TimelineX 8572T nicht erfüllen. Deshalb ist es aber noch lange keine Mogelpackung. Knapp sechseinhalb Stunden im Leerlauf und sehr gute 80 Minuten unter Volllast können sich sehen lassen und dürften unter realen Bedingungen tatsächlich für einen ganzen Arbeitstag ausreichen.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

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

350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
