Acer TravelMate Timeline 8481T
9 March 2012
Summary: The Acer TravelMate Timeline 8481T is a very svelte laptop for the travelling businessman. Sadly, its odd battery bulges out of the back making it more awkward to fit into a case. With a slim bezel, fair performance and various security features, it's a decent choice for the business-minded among you.
Pros: Slim body; Metal chassis is sturdy when closed; comfortable tilted angle when typing; Good battery life.
Cons: Lid feels weak when open; Large battery hump somewhat negates the slim design.
Conclusion: The Acer TravelMate 8481T-6440 has the capability to keep up with you while you work, and that's entirely the point. If you need the long-lasting battery and love the design, you'll be happy to carry this system around. But if performance is Priority No. 1, with portability a close second, the Dell XPS 14z—for the same price—is a better choice.But if you're thinking that all three of these notebooks are probably fine for your modest needs, save yourself $300 and go with...
Pros: Long-lasting battery, Very thin, beautiful design, Light weight
Cons: More expensive than necessary, Unimpressive graphics performance
Summary: Runtime whopper. Acer puts great value on mobility in the TravelMate 8481TG: A slim and light case, strong battery, energy efficient components. Read in this review if the diet has had a very negative effect on performance and emissions.
Pros: Outstanding battery life, Low power consumption, Compact size, Graphics switching, Stable case, Small power adapter, Low weight, Elegant looks, The notebook is extremely slim and light without the battery.
Cons: Very audible in load, Slow solid state drive, No optical drive, Moderate screen rates, Wobbly keys, An optical drive, a fast solid state drive and a good screen.
Conclusion: I will say the Acer TravelMate 8481T-6873 is a surprisingly good little system. It should be; it's geared more towards professional users. Acer has done a good job with the majority of the fit and finish of the 8481T; the black brushed aluminum, solid body, and healthy battery life make it a notebook that most people would probably be happy to use on the go, and there's plenty of power under the hood, too.
Summary: At $999, Acer TravelMate TimelineX 8481T-6440 is one sleek and long-lasting laptop for highly mobile users. It offers a large 14-inch screen in a 13-inch size package, solid performance, very long battery life, and welcome security features. While we wish Acer included a backlit keyboard, this notebook is a very good choice for business users on the go.
Conclusion: O pouco que o notebook corporativo Acer Travelmate 8481T-6440 possui em termos de potência, é compensado com um design elegante e parecido com um ultrabook (processador de baixa voltagem que exige menos coolers) e mais de 11 horas de bateria.
Pros: Design metálico elegante. Leve. Bateria com duração de 11 horas. USB 3.0 e interfaces eSATA. Excelente experiência de navegação. Traz tela de 14 polegadas numa moldura de 13 polegadas.
Summary: Сегодня купить Acer TravelMate 8481T уже не так просто, по крайней мере, я чаще вижу его в рознице и только, но не в интернет-магазинах, возможно, это связано с тем, что представлен ноутбук был еще в октябре прошлого года, возможно, политика Acer, точно не знаю. Однако стоимость модели в районе 40 000 рублей, конечно, может отпугнуть, ведь мы привыкли, да и сам производитель целенаправленно развивал идею о том, что Acer – это, в первую очередь, недорогие устройства.
