Reviews for the Acer TravelMate P256-M-385Y
Source: V3.co.uk Archive.org version
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.
