Acer TravelMate 8200 Review

Friday, August 11, 2006

The TravelMate 8200 is Acer's flagship commercial notebook, blending timeless colors with innovative materials and textures. Embodying the extreme in mobile computing, it is powered by Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology and featuring next-generation GDDR3 memory, along with a 15.4-inch widescreen display and integrated security solutions.

The Acer TravelMate 8200 includes all the new and high-end features you could want in a notebook and earned the prestigous PC Magazine Editors Choice Award in January 2006. Intel Centrino Duo Mobile Technology delivers superb dual-core mobile performance, allowing you to easily run demanding applications simultaneously. Supercharged ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics turn this notebook into a mobile entertainment system and make the most of the wide-screen 15.4" WSXGA+ display. You also get the Acer OrbiCam, an 1.3-megapixel adjustable webcam built into the black carbon-fiber chassis.


CNET reviewed Acer TravelMate 8200 :

The Acer TravelMate 8200 is one of the first Intel Core Duo laptops out of the gate. In addition to its bleeding-edge Core Duo processor, the midsize portable features a great case design and top-of-the-line components, such as a 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics chip, a mammoth 120GB hard drive, and a double-layer DVD burner. Though this sweet system delivers on the Core Duo's promise of extremely fast multimedia performance, its performance gain was less pronounced on our productivity benchmarks, making its $2,499 price too expensive for users who just want fast performance for office work.

Acer crams two of the most powerful notebook components you can get inside the 6.6-pound, sleek TravelMate 8200: Intel’s Core Duo processor and ATI’s Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics card. Add in a top-notch webcam and you have one of the best mainstream laptops for power users, as long as you have the cash.
