Reviews for the Acer TravelMate B114-21-42BG

Acer TravelMate B1 (B114-21) review – is Windows 10 S up to the task?
Source: Laptop Media English
Additionally, this device lasts quite a lot on battery power – we got 11 hours and 48 minutes of Web browsing and 8 hours and a half of video playback. Although there is a good amount of ports here, as well as very good upgradability, given the price point, we can’t recommend this laptop over the ChromeBook 314 (C933). It is the display and the poor CPU performance that let the TravelMate B1 (B114-21) down (as well as the Windows 10 S and its limitations).

Comment

AMD Radeon R4 (Stoney Ridge): Integrated graphics adapter of some AMD-A dual-core APUs ("Stoney Ridge"). Based on the GCN architecture, implements 192 shader units and runs at up to 600 MHz depending on the model. The performance can vary heavily depending on the TDP (10-15 Watts for the whole chip).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

A4-9120C: Entry-level APU for Chromebooks based on the 2016 Stoney-Ridge series with two CPU cores (one Excavator module with 2 integer and one FP unit) clocked between 1.6 - 2.4 GHz.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.00":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

1.68 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
