Customer reviews of Acer TravelMate 8204WLMiMost helpful reviews
- Good points:
- Really fast - even for a mobile system. On a rendering test using Mental Ray within 3ds max 8, the acer was twice as fast (to the second) than a 3.4 hyperthreaded intel notebook with similar memory; I'd have expected it to be slightly faster, but twice as fast was unbelievable. Screen is really nice, though could have been "clearview" instead of the matted finish. Very quiet operation with virtually no fan noise, even when it is being pushed. Very light considering the spec.
- Bad points:
- DVD drive doesn't play all audio cd's for some reason. Forced software bundle and installation fills the taskbar icon area with a ton of rubbish that takes up system resources. No installation disks (you have to burn your own when first turning on the notebook). Built-in webcam is okay, though could do with a better refresh rate and light sensitivity. Power pack, though very small and light, could have its input connector better designed instead of the standard right-angled connector which makes it liable for strain when hanging off the edge of a desk, or getting caught on the sides of tables and being accidentally pulled.
