Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 review: an Ultrabook with discrete graphics (and an optical drive)

First they flat out said no, then I pleaded with them and told them that I'm a full time student and really need something reliable and quickly, I have a Acer M5-481TG of weekly assignments that take hours that are done online and they said they'd offer me store credit. Sure that is nice of them, but I'd prefer a refund, as I feel a. I'd rather order from another big online retailer that's named after a river, as they HAVE a good return policy and a Acer M5-481TG selection. Lesson learned, I won't order from them again, and any friends or family that asks where to get hardware, I tell them to avoid Newegg.

The palm rejection can sometimes be a problem, though, meaning you might accidentally highlight text you weren't trying to select. Also, the built-in touch button is on the stiff side. Between that and the palm rejection, this reviewer got into the habit of using one-finger taps instead of doing the equivalent of a left click. It's an adaptive technique that works, though only you can decide if you'd be willing to work that way or, at the very least, invest in a standalone mouse. Display and sound No surprises here: For what it's worth, the glossy finish didn't get in the way while yours truly wrote this review in a harshly lit office. As a garden-variety TN display, you'll find it washes out pretty easily Acer M5-481TG you dip the lid forward, but we don't think you and your friends will have a problem crowding around to watch a movie -- even the people sitting off to the side should have a decent seat.

And, of course, that Shuriken display is nice to have, especially on a machine as relatively inexpensive as this. The best thing about the M5's Dolby-enhanced speakers is that they get loud -- loud enough for a small, impromptu dance party, say. But, as is the case with so many notebook speakers, the audio quality here is tinny, and it only gets more metallic-sounding as you crank the volume.


There's also a GB hard drive on board, paired with a 20GB solid-state drive for faster boot-ups. And man, does it boot quickly: The upper surface of the base unit and the rear of the lid Acer M5-481TG made of brushed aluminum-magnesium alloy, which comes in an anthracite hue.


The bottom of the base unit is made of black matte plastic and matches the metal upper surface well. The frame of the display is in tune with the metal parts, but is made of plastic. The case makes a very sturdy impression. When lifting the device, the case does not twist. The case does not Acer M5-481TG in when pressed.

The workmanship is also flawless. Only the frame of the touchpad can be faulted. Thus Acer M5-481TG touchpad sits slightly askew in the frame. This somewhat diminishes the otherwise sophisticated look of the device. The lid is made of an aluminium-magnesium alloy.

The bottom of the base unit is made of plastic. A beautiful device.


The surface of the base unit is also made of the metal alloy. Connectivity In terms of connectivity, only the most necessary ports are included in the small and thin notebook. Acer M5-481TG four connection ports, as well as the AC jack, are found on the back of the ultrabook. This makes plugging a USB stick inconvenient.
