Acer Travelmate 8472TG Notebook

14,1" This business notebook comes with a matte display and has a unique feature to offer: Acer combines Intel HD with Nvidia Geforce GT330M,

i5-450M, Intel HD + Nvidia GT330M, 4 GB RAM and a 640 GB harddrive is available at around 900.- euro. Our tester is equipped with Core i3-350M, Intel HD + Nvidia GT330M, 4 GB RAM and a 320 GB harddrive

As it is geared entirely for business buyers, the Acer has an Easyport IV docking port, a V.92 modem and a fingerprint scanner. Those are often welcomed features which simply can't be left out on such a product. But what baffles us is the dogged adherence to analogue monitor ports and the vehement withholding of quicker interfaces like eSATA or USB 3.0. While rendering via the VGA port is quite noticeably unclear at a resolution of 1280x1024, one can, oddly enough, speak of good rendering with a resolution of 1680x1050. This is unusual as increased resolution normally makes the image worse on an analogue VGA port. We didn't test any other resolutions.

The 3 USB 2.0 interfaces also don't really shine with exceptional performance potential. The transfer rates we tested were in the lower mid-range with 26.1 MB/s. Especially as other options are missing, we had expected more. The card reader gave similar results as the Travelmate 8172T with 7.2 MB/s XD Picture Card and 16.9 MB/s SD Card. Gigabit LAN, webcam and audio ports (line in, line out) are up to the current standards and don't exhibit any abnormalities. The Bluetooth module already supports 3.0+HS specifications.

Apart from DVI-D, the available Easyport IV dock (ca. 100 Euro) doesn't offer any new interfaces on the Travelmate, but it does simplify the otherwise tedious plug-in and plug-out procedure when changing from mobile to stationary operation. In that way, printer, display and other peripheries can be connected with a simple "click".

The software configuration is for the most part limited to the operating system and an older version of the Intervideo DVD playback software, which has in the meantime been taken over by Corel. Numerous tools and test versions are installed, though whether they help or annoy is a matter of personal preference. In e
