Acer TravelMate P243 notebook Review
Source: Slashgear English
Acer TravelMate P243 is available in many Acer reseller stores across the USA right this minute in a couple different iterations. The one we’re using here will cost you right around $999 USD, while a much more conservatively powered iteration with a 2nd Gen i3 processor from Intel will run you around $599.99 USD. That’s the one you want if you only want the basics – don’t expect to do the big tasks there, but traveling around with it will be a perfectly good experience.

78.9% Acer TravelMate P259-MG-71UU Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Disappointing screen. Acer launches a well-equipped 15.6-inch all-rounder on the market with the TravelMate P259-MG-71UU. The GeForce 940MX graphics core (GDDR5 version) allows playing many up-to-date computer games. Acer ruins the overall good impression with a poor screen and only middling battery life.

Acer TravelMate P2 (P2410-M) review – a rigid business solution for people on the go
Source: Laptop Media English
Yep, you won’t get a premium treatment when you go for this laptop. Neither the materials of use are slick, nor the body is the thinnest. Don’t even ask about the performance. However, if your daily work mainly consists of working with documents or the Office package of Windows – then this won’t be a problem.

Acer TravelMate P2 (TMP215-52) review – not what we expected
Source: Laptop Media English
Excluding the aforementioned issues, we had untroubled time with the TravelMate P2 (TMP215-52). Its storage is fast thanks to the NVMe drive support, and you can upgrade it with two RAM sticks (up to 16GB of DDR4 memory). Sadly, because of the weird performance, we weren’t able to test the battery life of the unit, given the fact that the results would have been inaccurate.

Acer TravelMate P2 (TMP215-53) review – decent budget daily driver with some flaws
Source: Laptop Media English
At the end of the day, the Acer TravelMate P2 (TMP215-53) is a decent budget offer. This device can be a good daily driver if you pick it with a 4-core CPU like the Core i5-1135G7 or Core i7-1165G7. These CPUs are fast enough for 4K video content and even for some light and casual gaming on Low settings. Our laptop has an Intel Core i3-1115G4 (with two cores and four threads) and Intel UHD Graphics Xe G4 (48EU) and because the memory is in dual-channel mode, it can run some games on Low settings like CS:GO, League Of Legends, Minecraft. So, yes, even with the least power CPU variant, you can play light games after work, if your device has two RAM sticks. Unfortunately, the display is a mixed bag. The 15.6″ 1080p IPS panel (BOE NV156FHM-N48) has comfortable viewing angles and a good contrast ratio but on the other hand, its sRGB color coverage is low and the panel isn’t PWM-free unless you bump the brightness to 100%. Another thing that left us with mixed feelings is the keyboard/touchpad combo – the trackpad is definitely a good unit while we cannot say exactly the same for the keyboard.

Acer TravelMate P2 (TMP214-41) review – good budget device with fast AMD CPU options
Source: Laptop Media English
We are pleasantly surprised by the overall performance of the Acer TravelMate P2 (TMP214-41). This affordable 14-inch machine has a lot to offer for its modest price tag. The build quality is the usual business for this class – it’s an all-plastic build, the lid can’t be opened with a single hand and you can spot some bends while typing harshly. However, the bezels around the panel are thin enough and the laptop looks up to date. The hardware camera shutter is a nice extra. The display (AUO B140HAN04.0 (AUO403D)) is a decent 14″ 1080p IPS panel. It has comfortable viewing angles, great contrast ratio, and the main advantage is the lack of PWM for brightness adjustment – no matter for what you’re planning to use the device, this will not negatively impact your health and eyesight during prolonged periods of usage. The main con of this display is the narrow color coverage. The Acer TravelMate P2 (TMP215-53) is a decent non-expensive laptop that doesn’t have a lot of downsides. It’s compact, light, the IPS panel has good viewing angles and it is PWM-free

Comment

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.


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Intel HD Graphics 510: Integrated GPU (GT1) with 12 EUs found on some low-end Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

Intel HD Graphics 610: Integrated GPU (GT1) with 12 EUs found on some low-end Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Same performance as the old HD Graphics 510.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds.

NVIDIA GeForce MX230: Pascal (GP108) based entry-level graphics card with GDDR5 graphics memory. Only suited for less demanding games.

AMD Vega 5: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 5 CUs (= 320 shaders) and a clock of up to 1400 MHz.

Intel UHD Graphics Xe G4 48EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 48 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

AMD Vega 8 R4000: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 8 CUs (= 512 shaders) and a clock of up to 1.750 MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

3210M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.5 - 3.1 GHz

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

Intel Pentium:

4405U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 510 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

Intel Kaby Lake:

Pentium 4415U: Kaby-Lake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Compared to the Core i3-7100H, the 4415U is clocked slower (2.3 versus 3 GHz), offers less Level 3 cache and a slower GPU. Both a manufactured in the same 14nm process.

Intel Comet Lake:

i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced on 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).

AMD Renoir (Ryzen 4000 APU):

R3 PRO 4450U: Mobile Quad-Core APU using four Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.5 to 3.7 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 5 CUs clocked at up to 1400 MHz. The CPU does not support SMT / Hyperthreading. The PRO version of Renoir is offering additional security and management features.

Intel Tiger Lake:

i3-1115G4: Tiger Lake based dual-core processor for thin and light laptops. The two CPU cores are clocked at 3 GHz - 4.1 GHz and the integrated UHD Graphics Xe GPU can run at up to 1.25 GHz.

AMD Cezanne (Zen 3, Ryzen 5000):

R7 PRO 5850U: A mobile Octa-Core APU with Zen 3 cores clocked at 1.9 to 4.4 GHz and a Vega iGPU with 8 CUs clocked at up to 2000 MHz. The PRO CPUs offer additional management and security features.
