Acer TravelMate 11.6 Inch TMB117 Review – The Laptop Specifically Designed For Students

The TravelMate 11.6 was specifically targeted for students. The company has offered a good laptop in such an affordable price. With only for under 200 dollars, you will get a good machine that let you doing all of your school tasks easily without any issue. The 11.6 display is a great choice in term of usability and portability. Then, the 4GB RAM and Intel Celeron N3050 will let you getting an enough power for finishing your homework and doing presentation.

The design itself is also designed with rubber strip and ruggedized frame that keeps it from couple drops and bumps. You will find yourself a situation where something bad is happened. The laptop could slip from your hands or it’s accidentally falls from the table. We do not what will happen and this design would protect it. We are going to see it closely and find if the device is really that worth.

That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to see how it performs on this article. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.

Design And Ports

The design is overall great in term of durability. The entire body is made from black plastic and matte. The surfaces are considered as light and rugged at the same time. The system is really not having a bad thing to talk on design. The hinges itself are installed tightly and the company stated that it can hold for more than 25000 opening and closing. I have tested it for hundreds of times and I found the hinge is still precision and strong. Sadly, the entire look is not really good, but I really love its durability.

The design is not quite that great, but the same thing is not happened on the ports connectivity. It presents you of two USB ports for moving the data at the same time. Then, there are also of HDMI, micro SD slot, 3.5 audio jack, and cable lock slot. The type-C connection is nowhere to find and the price really talks here. For me, two USB ports are should be enough as we can still charge the phone and connecting the mouse at the same time.

Display And Audio

TravelMate 11.6 2The display is featured of 11 inch screen with screen resolution at 1366 x 768. The brightness for somehow is considered as very low, but the contrast itself is pretty much great. The screen flickered is so minimal and that is a good point for the low brightness. Then, the black level, gamma, color percentage, and many more results are quite similar on many products at the similar price. The quality is great, but do not expect much thing from it.

As for the audio, the sounds performances are mediocore. It lacks of bass and power. The power is very weak and not punchy at all. Luckily, the vocal clarity is detail and making it enjoyable for listening music for many hours. I suggest you to play a little with the equalizer for getting the maximum result.

Keyboard Performance

You basically are going to use it for typing most all of the time. For this case, Acer is putting their maximum effort on bringing the comfortable experience to the keyboard. The keyboard is also designed with water splash proof technology and should not be worry if you accidentally spill your drink into it. That thing is often happened and this is such a good additional feature.

On typing, the rough and flat keys offer a nice pressure point and clear drop. It leaves me an overall good experience. The keys travels are suitable for frequent typing and the keys are also made in standard size even with its small package. The only keys that appeared little tinny are the navigation one. It’s not annoying, but you need to get used with it for a little.
