Acer launches new TravelMate notebook

Acer is continuing to target the road warrior market with the launch today of the latest update to its notebook range -- the TravelMate 330. The new notebook addresses primary travelling concerns -- how heavy is it and when will the power run out.

The TravelMate weighs in at 1.8kg and its lithium ion battery has a claimed three-hour life. Also included is a 56Kbps fax modem, and Acer's EasyLink Combo drive, which is a combination of an external hot-pluggable floppy disk and CD-ROM drive. This feature assists in the connection of multiple storage devices.

Other notebook specs include a Pentium II, 333MHz processor and an AGP 2x 3D graphics accelerator. The system is priced at $4999.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
