14 March 2013
Summary: Stylish marathon runner. Acer has an ultra-thin 14-inch notebook with a Core i5 ULV chip on offer with the M3-481. The Computer is available from just 480 Euros (~$622) without operating system, and also looks nice.
Pros: Very good battery life, Cheap price, Good running performance, Runs almost silently, Low Volume, Good quality built, Extremely good battery life, good performance, and the appealing case.
Cons: Low-contrast screen, No openings for maintenance
Summary: Evolutionary. Acer takes a new approach to the familiar Ultrabook: a laptop with a touchscreen, optical drive and gaming-ready GPU. How will their "all-around device" fare in our tests?
Pros: Long battery life, High program performance, Fast graphics card, Optical drive, Touchscreen, Looking for a gaming-ready Ultrabook? Few competitors offer higher performance than the Acer Aspire M3.
Cons: Single USB 3.0, Disappointing TN panel, High temperature emissions at full load, Constantly running cooler fan, Workmanship flaws on our test model, A better display, clean workmanship, reliable input devices – for 1,000 Euros it is hard not to expect more.
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.
Summary: Mobile computing discovers in the Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG a good ally. This laptop is portable, thin and it has a good performance. Its graphics card in particular is great. From rumors, the device will have a price of £600.
Excerpt: WHEN LOOKING FOR a tagline that will easily sell a boatload of Acer Timeline M3 notebooks, it doesn’t take much more than: “an ultrabook that will play Battlefield 3 on Ultra setting.” And it’s true, too.
Pros: Powerful graphics in a thin package; loaded.
Cons: Mediocre panel; width pushes the boundaries of ultrabook portability.

Cons: Sub-par touchpad, Display resolution only 1366 x 768, Ports in an awkward place
Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 Review: First Impressions
20 April 2012
Excerpt: The Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 has the distinction of having the longest laptop name ever and of being the first ultrabook to come to market with discrete graphics. Okay, maybe the name isn’t the longest ever, but the discrete graphics thing is no joke.
Summary: Kepler's Debut. "Ultrabook XL" is one way of describing the Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 as the notebook doesn't exactly check in gracefully in its 15-inch case. However, with the new GeForce GT 640M graphics card, Acer offers a worthwhile treat that promises gaming on the go.
Pros: Very good graphics performance, Fast SSD and thus very good application performance, Good battery life thanks to Optimus, The graphics performance of the GeForce GT 640M.
Cons: Poor display, Touchpad without dedicated buttons, Hot under load, Normal, dedicated touchpad buttons! Forever!
