Review Acer Aspire TimelineU M3-581PTG Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
7 March 2013
  • 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.

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 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!
