Acer Aspire Timeline U M3-581TG Review

Tech2
29 July 2012
  • Summary: Priced at Rs 51,705, the Timeline U M3-581TG is one of the cheapest options you have if you wish to buy an Ultrabook. Of course, it isn’t cheap by any means, considering you can buy a more powerful laptop for the same price. This means the premium is mainly for the ultra-slim design. The M3-581TG would have been a better deal had it featured the Intel Core i5-3317U processor and at least a 750GB hard drive.

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 Review

thinkdigit.com
12 July 2012
  • Summary: The Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 is an ultrabook while the Aspire V5 isn't, but both have very similar form factors. The M3 offers very good system and graphics performance, as well as better battery life. You pay around Rs. 9,000 more than the Aspire V5, but then again, the M3 does make for a much better deal.
  • Pros: Zippy system performance, Impressive graphics capabilities, Good battery life
  • Cons: Looks are not as premium as they should be, Display hinge and panel is not very solid

Acer Timeline M3 Review

maximum pc
12 June 2012
  • 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. The Timeline M3 will indeed play BF3 on Ultra, provided you’re comfortable with 30 frames per second. That dips a bit below our thresholds for a shooter. We preferred playing Battlefield 3 on High, which gave us 50–60fps in online play.
  • Pros: Powerful graphics in a thin package; loaded.
  • Cons: Mediocre panel; width pushes the boundaries of ultrabook portability.

Review Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
23 March 2012
  • 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!

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3

LAPTOP Magazine
16 March 2012
  • Summary: While it's already been proven that you can cram very good graphics and battery life into a thin 15-inch system, the Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 takes it to the next level. Nvidia's next-generation GeForce GT640M GPU can hang with the best of them, letting you play the latest games anywhere. The audio is also quite satisfying.
  • Pros: Relatively light for 15-inch laptop, Strong graphics scores, Excellent battery life, Good audio quality
  • Cons: Low screen resolution, All ports on back, No backlit keyboard

  • Summary: The Acer Timeline M3 is a 15in laptop that could have taken on the Macbook Pro, but a poor LCD panel inadvertently surrenders an own goal.

Acer Aspire M3 Touch

Techtree
1 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Ultrabooks have been around for more than a year now, and we have been able to get our hands on a few. However, the Acer Aspire M, although branded as an Ultrabook, seems to be more of a desktop replacement with a large 15.6" multi-touch screen (the first Ultrabook from the company to have this feature) that can take full advantage of Windows 8.
  • Pros: Good performance; Looks good; Large touchscreen; Ergonomic keyboard and touchpad; NVIDIA graphics; Good battery backup.
  • Cons: All ports unconventionally placed at the back; Heavy; Bad display viewing angles; Muffled sound via speakers; Expensive.
