Reviews for the Acer TravelMate 3000
Source: PC World Archive.org version
The Acer TravelMate 3000 comes with two batteries, is small enough that you can pick it up with one hand, and costs a reasonable $1299. On the other hand, it lacks a built-in optical drive, and the keyboard is uncomfortable. Unlike most notebooks, the TravelMate 3000 comes standard with two interchangeable (though not hot-swappable) batteries. To minimize the machine's weight and bulk, use the three-cell battery, which sits flush with the case.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.
