Over the past few months, we've put both the touchscreen and game-capable models of the 14-inch Aspire M5 to the test, and we've been pleased with what we've found. In fact, we've already featured the laptop in our Back to School and Holiday Gift Guides...

Yes, it's heavier than the average ultrabook, but if you're looking for an excellent value in a full-featured thin laptop, the Acer Timeline U M5 is hard to...

I love clichés as much as the next guy, but in a world inhabited by snazzy tech enhancements like Speedo LZR Racer Suits, slow and steady rarely wins the race anymore.That’s a problem in the ultraverse these days: as ultrabook manufacturers are waging...

For the money, the Acer Aspire M5 is a fantastic deal. At $780, it delivers some of the best graphics performance you'll find in this price range, or among Ultrabooks, in general. It's thinner than many mainstream 14-inch laptops, even though it still...

Ожидать от данной модели «турболакшери» не стоит. Несмотря на некоторые попытки повысить его престижность (металлическая отделка корпуса, подсветка клавиатуры) — это достаточно бюджетное решение. Тем, кто ждет высокого уровня исполнения, внимания к...

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5-481TG получился довольно интересным, но несколько неоднозначным ультрабуком. Производитель явно пытался создать своего рода недорогую элитную модель. Отсюда и частично металлический корпус, и один вариант конфигурации для...

Windows 8, el nuevo sistema operativo de Microsoft ya es una realidad, como es una realidad que incluirlo en un equipo lo transforma por completo. Una nueva interfaz y en general una nueva manera de relacionarse con el ordenador, pero manteniendo un...

Mit dem Aspire Timeline Ultra M5-481TG geht Acer in die richtige Richtung. Gegen die Killer-Argumente der Konkurrenz kann das 14-Zoll Ultrabook jedoch nichts entgegenbringen. Hier hilft nicht einmal die leistungsstarke Nvidia Geforce GT 640M LE. Bereits...
