Decent specs, but the massive battery life very much so elevates this notebook above the average.

Acer was one of the few big name manufacturers that were able to meet our stringent pricing criteria. The submitted notebook, the TravelMate, is not a so bad overall, but it couldn't win out against the smaller manufacturer's abilities to get top components at short notice. Where Acer excels is in after-sales support.

Where Acer excels is in after-sales support.

The TravelMate 225X's one-year warranty comes with a two-hour Express Service guarantee which is very impressive.

Although borderline in comparison, this notebook comes with a 1.33GHz Mobile Celeron, 256MB of RAM (8MB shared), a 20GB HDD and a DVD-ROM. This isn't bad, although in the performance stakes it couldn't muster it with the desktop processor-enabled notebooks.

However, and this is a major point, the Acer had an awesome battery test result of 260 minutes.

Overall, the Acer is an appealing choice for the road warrior.
