When I first fired up the TimelineU, I had a hard time determining whether I should review the machine objectively as a standalone product or if I should impart my preconceived notions about ultrabooks. In the interest of fairness, I'll try to cover...

The Acer Aspire TimelineUltra M5-581TG diverges from the standard Ultrabook format, with mostly successful results. If you’re after sheer portability, this isn’t the notebook for you. But if the lack of an optical drive and usually poor gaming...

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...

The Acer Timeline Ultra M5 certainly manages to impress in raw performance. What it lacks in visual style from other ultrabooks, it more than makes up for in substance. The Ultra M5 also presents a new class of ultrabooks (if such a classification can...

Das sich recht billig anfühlende TimelineU M5-581TG-53314G12Mas liefert eine gute Leistung. Dafür sorgen ein Intel Core i5-3317U (1,7 GHz, Turbo-Boost bis zu 2,6 GHz), 4 GByte RAM und eine 128-GByte-SSD. Das spiegelnde 15,6-Zoll-Display ist...

Großes Display, vollwertige Tastatur mit Nummernblock und ein DVD-Brenner – das Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 bringt echtes Notebook-Feeling ins Ultrabook. Dabei ist die Größe von 15 Zoll für diese Kategorie eher untypisch, denn sie bedingt entsprechend...

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 er uten tvil en god allround-PC. Den har god ytelse, lang batterilevetid og pent design, mens det skorter litt på skjerm- og tastaturfronten. Om du vil ha en PC du både kan ha med deg i sekken og spille spill på, er...
