Reviews for the Acer TravelMate P256-M-385Y

80% Acer TravelMate P256-M review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Featuring a functional design that houses a good number of port options, coupled with business focused management software, the TravelMate P256-M is a solid choice for any small to medium business looking for a desktop replacement. However, its rather bulky size, heavy weight, slow trackpad and slightly dull display hamper its usability as a mobile workstation and make it feel like it works as a laptop in name only.

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.


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