This new ultraportable TravelMate from Acer is sleek and light to carry. Acer
has given a serious thought toward upgrading its designs and to be in sync with
the current trend, the inclusion of magnesium alloy into the chassis for
robustness is one such example. Strangely, there is no latch to lock the lid
which is a slight disadvantage. Based on the latest Intel Santa Rosa Platform it
comes with 1 GB RAM and 160 GB HDD. There is a 12.1” widescreen with native
support for 1280×1024 resolution. Connectivity options abound: there are three
USB ports, FireWire Port, memory card reader, Bluetooth etc. The fingerprint
option provides an extra layer of security, though placement of fingerprint
reader could have been a little better instead of being between the mouse

Performance wise it fared well in PC Mark05 with a score of 3644 which is
good for this price bracket. This score was better than that of Connoi FL91. It
couldn’t run 3D Mark06 with its onboard graphics, which should not be a concern
atleast for business travelers. In battery test, it fared very well with a
battery backup of 3.32 hr, which is adequate for business travelers and is more
than what we got from Connoi FL91.

Bottomline: If your need is of a strong
productive ultraportable notebook, this is a good bet at this price.
