Despite the overall disappointing performance of the TravelMate 8481T-6440, Acer does make some compelling arguments to consider it. This laptop has superb battery life, a light travel weight, and a beautiful design. Plus, though the warranty Acer offers on this notebook is an industry-standard-length one-year plan, it's Acer's International Travelers' Warranty, so you can get tech help for this machine anywhere in the world.

At $999, Acer TravelMate TimelineX 8481T-6440 is one sleek and long-lasting laptop for highly mobile users. It offers a large 14-inch screen in a 13-inch size package, solid performance, very long battery life, and welcome security features. While we wish Acer included a backlit keyboard, this notebook is a very good choice for business users on the go. If you're looking to save some money, the $749 Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E420s offers comparable performance and a more comfortable keyboard, but is heavier and doesn't last as long on a charge. But if portability is paramount, then the TimelineX 8481T is the notebook to take with you on the road.
