Acer Aspire Timeline U M3-581TG Review
3 February 2014
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.
Summary: What bugged us most was the picture's milky sheen and the anti-Retina display resolution of 1366x768 on a 15.6-inch panel. All that aside, however, we’re still awed by the gaming performance of the Timeline M3 and its portability—provided you have a wide enough bag. With a proper screen and better touchpad, you’d have a seriously kick-ass machine.
Pros: Powerful graphics in a thin package; loaded.
Cons: Mediocre panel; width pushes the boundaries of ultrabook portability.
Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 - Finding the Right Balance
23 March 2012
Excerpt: Building a good notebook is a delicate balancing act between price, build quality and performance. The Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 with a new GeForce GT 640M GPU comes pretty close to finding the right balance. Find out if this multimedia machine meets your needs.
Pros: Thin and light, Fantastic battery life, Solid Build, Attractive street price
Cons: Made mostly from plastic, Very low resolution screen
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
Excerpt: The Acer Timeline M3 laptop is a study in polar opposites. Its thin, elegant chassis and superb performance for its class suggest that the M3 might be a true category leader, but a painfully poor LCD panel prevents the Acer from achieving that goal.
