Reviews for the Acer Travelmate B115-MP-C2TQ
Netbook with IPS. This small Acer laptop has good battery life, an IPS panel and it runs silently. Windows 8.1 Professional (64-bit) hints towards the business uses of this model.
I wanted to write this review entirely on the B115 unit, to replace my existing laptop with it for the duration of my testing. I took it through a series of tests and rigorous use, but I just could not stand using it for more than an hour at a time. It’s meant for a little usage here and there - editing a document, checking email, and anything else that isn’t completely hindered by its 11.6” screen. You get what you pay for, and it turns out $379 (about £243, AU$466) can only get you so far, even on Windows.
