Acer Aspire M5 review: the affordable all-purpose ultrabook

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Battlefield 3 on a power-sipping ultrabook? They said it couldn't be done. In March, however, Acer and Nvidia proved them wrong . Behind closed doors at the 2012 Game Developer's Conference, the sleek black 15.6-inch Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 ran the demanding game, thanks to a brand-new Nvidia GeForce GT 640M graphics chip with more bang per watt than anything else we'd seen.
  • Pros: Game-capable graphics, Cool and quiet, Good battery life, Great build quality for the money
  • Cons: Sub-par screen, Touchpad and keyboard need work, Annoying port and button arrangement

Acer Aspire M3 Touch Review

thinkdigit.com
9 January 2013
  • Summary: In case of the Acer Aspire M3 Touch ultrabook, we recommend that unless touch is an absolute necessity for you, you should choose one of the more conventional ultrabooks around the Rs. 60,000 mark, which will offer better overall performance. The HP Spectre XT makes the most sense around this budget.
  • Pros: Touchscreen is a bonus, Touch response is good, Well-built, Doesn't miss out on an optical drive, Excellent battery life, Good graphics performance
  • Cons: You might hardly use the touchscreen, Very expensive, Compromises on the spec sheet, Flimsy display hinge means touch is not a lot of fun

Acer Aspire M5-481PT review

Techworld
10 December 2012
  • Summary: The Acer M5-481PT feels like a holdover of a bygone era in laptop design, where all laptops tried to be all things to all people. While its robust feature set and solid build quality are impressive for the modest $800 pricetag, the M5 feels like an outlier in the Ultrabook class, a product line defined by extreme portability and sleek design. The end result is a product that feels kind of like a 100-tools-in-1 swiss army knife.

Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6488

LAPTOP Magazine
21 November 2012
  • Summary: The Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6488 is an attractive Windows 8 Ultrabook in more ways than one. The brushed aluminum design gives this 14-inch laptop a premium vibe, as does the touch screen and high-quality speaker system. However, the M5 also has some blemishes, chief among them a touchpad that doesn't always cooperate.
  • Pros: Attractive design, Fast boot time, Touch screen works well with Windows 8, Excellent sound quality
  • Cons: Awkwardly placed power button, Touchpad can be finicky, All the ports in the back

Acer Aspire M5 Touch Review

19 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Acer’s Aspire M5 Touch is a strong Ultrabook. It offers good battery life, an enjoyable user interface, and high build quality for a low price. Adding touch doesn’t add much to the experience but, well, it adds touch. This can be useful in certain situations and if the touchscreen works well when called upon.
  • Pros: Good build quality, Enjoyable user interface, Loud, clear audio, Long battery life
  • Cons: Touchscreen is rarely useful, Too much bloatware, Poor value

Acer Aspire TimelineU M5 Review

TechSpot
14 August 2012
  • Conclusion: When I first fired up the TimelineU, I had a hard time determining whether I should review the machine objectively as a standalone product or if I should impart my preconceived notions about ultrabooks. In the interest of fairness, I'll try to cover both starting with the latter: As an ultrabook, the M5 falls short.
