Acer TravelMate TMB117-M-C14E (NX.VCGEK.017) Review

Positives:

  • Performance: The Intel Celeron, which seems to be the most reasonable choice for almost all notebooks, not just cost-wise, but performance-wise too, was the choice for this notebook too. With 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of SSD, the notebook performed surprisingly great for net surfing and other daily needs.
  • Portability: Acer has named this notebook aptly. It measures just 2.23 cm even in the thickest part and weighs just 1.43kgs so that you can easily carry it with you in your bag packs. Also, it is just an 11-inch notebook, which means using it anywhere, even in airplanes is not a difficulty by any chance.
  • Battery: Having a good battery backup is very important, especially for laptops or notebooks which claim to be portable. The backup of about 7-8 hours is decent, though not great. But it does make you forget about carrying your chargers everywhere with you.

 

Negatives:

  • Display: Portability and performance have jeopardized the display aspect for this laptop. It comes with an 11.6 inch HD TN panel, which is average. The mere HD display makes the visual experience bad. Also, the brightness is so low that it cannot be used outdoors. Also, it is not a touchscreen, which is very disappointing.
  • Price: With no touch screen and a disappointing display, the price for this laptop with the stated configurations is a bit high, when compared to its rivals in the market.

Verdict

It is not the best option available in the market for the marked price, but it is one of the most portable options available. Also, it features SSD, which is rare to find in this range of laptops. So, if portability and storage are the key factors for you, the Acer TravelMate TMB117-M-C14E (NX.VCGEK.017) can be a good choice.
