Reviews and Problems with Acer Travelmate B113 / TMB113 - series
Showing 1-4 of 4
HUGE protruding battery
13 May 2013
Summary: The laptop is fine, reasonable speed, battery life etc. The 6-cell battery is severely protruding at the back, something that is not shown on Acer or Amazon pics. The battery tilts the laptop by an inch which is weird to use on your lap. Better options out there: For about $400: 13 inch Dell Inspiron 13z or refurbished laptops (Toshiba Portege R835). For about $550: 13 inch ultraportables with a touchscreen - Lenovo u310 or Sony Vaio.
Summary: Nice compact laptop ideal for taking with me in the van to show customers designs I have done. Only problem none of my software will work with windows 8 unless I pay out £700 pounds in upgrades. It will be cheaper to change the operating system to windows 7. I think windows 8 is okay if you just want to use the computer to search the net and play games but not for business use. Acer's support is not up to much either I sent 2 emails three weeks ago and as yet no reply.
After reading some of the great reviews and owning an Acer lap top, I thought this was the notebook for me!

Summary: However this i3 processor is ok! But it is not as quick as some reviews make it sound. The mouse pad is very over-sensitive even after setting it up, especially using Windows 8, which isn't great anyway Careful where you touch the mouse pad, as menus pop in and out all of the time?
Pros: - угол раскрытия почти 180 - матовый экран - хорошая клава (кроме стрелок)
Cons: - клик по тачпаду работает через раз - у тачпада нету обозначенных кнопок. область кнопок каждый раз ищу наощупь - корпус собран неаккуратно - на моем половинки неплотно подогнаны - блок стрелок очень! маленький - USB гнездо слева очень близко к переднему краю - неудобно юзать - динамики снизу корпуса - звук слабый и без басов.
