Summary: Overall, I highly recommend this laptop to anyone who wants something portable, simple and efficient. I mainly use it for internet, word processing and a few light games (doom, quake, duke nukem 3D, etc.
Pros: Small, but not too small. Aesthetically pleasing aside from a few oversights (see cons). Pretty good horsepower and battery life (all things considered). Upgraded to a 250GB SSD (Samsung 550 evo) and 8GB of Corsair 1.35v RAM with no issues. Runs Win7 with ease (acer supplying Win7 drivers is a re...
Cons: Acer is a bit deceptive in some of their marketing of this product. They say the laptop "doesn't need a fan", implying it doesn't have one. It does, but it is quiet. The cunning wording isn't very endearing, I'd have a more favorable outlook of acer if they used honest wording, like "only uses it...
Summary: It was easy to upgrade the RAM but there was NO documentation available that was useful as the manual did not correspond to the actual unit. The documentation showed a hatch that could be opened to access the RAM and the actual unit had no such hatch.
Pros: Able to be upgraded to 8 GB RAM. Good value.
Cons: Could come with better documentation or have better documentation available online.
Pros: I needed something small and inexpensive that still had a bit of speed. Wasn't real concerned about the power, i3 works for what I need. Added 4GB more ram, a Samsung 840 EVO SSD and a fresh copy of Win 8.1. Flies now, boots in 8 seconds, plenty responsive. Hard to believe that netbooks were all ...
Pros: I'm not sure how the unit behaved stock, but I upgraded the RAM to 8GB and the HD to a 7200RPM drive, installed Linux Mint (all hardware works at install without any additional configuration or drivers) and the performance is excellent. Very responsive, quick boot time, etc. Even with the upgrade...
Summary: Day 1 Today I took delivery of the Acer TravelMate B. I bought this specifically because I read a blog post from a school which deployed these to their students with Ubuntu rather than Windows. They mentioned the light weight, good processing power and long battery life.
Summary: I felt compelled to endorse the Acer Travelmate. I wanted a 13.3" Windows 7 laptop with 3rd gen Intel Processor and the Acer was the cheapest option I found by far. I couldn't find any reviews but I really like mine so far.
Summary: I really wanted a laptop that was smaller than 12", but still packed a lot of punch. The i3 processor enables most tasks to be performed smoothly. As a software developer, I use some pretty demanding applications but nothing is too much for this laptop.
Summary: Il TravelMate B113 è ultrasottile (meno di 21 mm), leggero ed estremamente maneggevole, a misura di zaino, quindi perfetto per gli studenti. Nonostante sia piccolo, è dotato di tastiera con ampio spazio tra i tasti, per consentire una comoda digitazione.
