Several Unexpected Surprises, Good and Bad
This review is from: Acer TravelMate TMP455-M-6401 (NX.V8MAA.003) Notebook Intel Core i5 4200U (1.60GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4400 15.6" Windows 8 Pro 64-bit
Pros: Fast, quiet, light and cool. This laptop does way more work than i would expect for the price. The USB 3.0 and SD reader are good to have for peripherals. The screen size and aspect ratio are wonderful. You'd be hard-pressed to find other notebooks with 1080p screens for under 1 grand. This laptop runs nice and fast. After cleaning off the usual Acer bloatware, this runs almost as fast as my desktop with SSD. Internal speakers give very good sound quality. Did I mention, this laptop runs cool. Without running under serious load, there is almost no noticeable heat on the lap. Under load, only minimal heat.
Cons: There were also several things which I have noticed, not mentioned in product descriptions, which could be better.
Other Thoughts: First, let me say that, in general, i prefer reflective screens over matte, but the material which this laptops matte screen is made of can distort colors slightly. It almost appears to create a slight speckle effect. Not enough to remove an egg, and I am slowly getting used to it.
