Hello all,

anybody seen any reviews? or maybe anyone has bought it?

I'm going to by this model but my decision depends on the noise level...


Re: Acer TravelMate 4202WLMi CoreDuo

I don't have this particular model.  I have the Travelmate 8104WLMi
(Pentium-M 760) which in general is pretty well specified and performs well
in general.    Noise-wise FWIW it's pretty quiet, with the fan only kicking
in as necessary.

However the curved keyboard they tend to use in the Travelmate series from
personal experience is pretty poor in my opinion - misses typed characters
quite a lot - much more than my less-than-perfect typing skills should
allow.    I'm in the UK and an Acer Advantage customer, and quite frankly I
found Acer UK Support on this and other unrelated issues, appalling to deal
with in terms of ignoring support requests, emails, telephone calls.  As for
shelling out the extra cash for the privilege of  being an Acer Advantage

I would not buy an Acer again based on my own experiences.  Hopefully, the
rest of the world does not have similar issues with local Acer support, but
nevertheless I would research the support aspect thoroughly as well as the
machine spec/performance before parting with your money for any brand of
notebook.  When things go wrong as they occasionally do, the last thing you
need is the support department turning a drama into a nightmare, you just
want a quick and effective repair.
