Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi review notebook performance benchmark

I’ll start off with this rather fresh model from Acer.

The device is agreeable to the eye and to the touch and would look equally well on a desk and in your hands. This computer features the exclusive folio design the point of which is to make the notebook look as a document folder rather than what it actually is.

Well, I wouldn’t say the designers met their goal. The texture and color of the material cannot conceal the simple fact that this is a typical notebook. You can only mistake this thing for a folder if you are looking at it from the front and a little from above, and only at dusk. Well, it’s just the job of the marketing department to come up with pretty names and their explanations. We’d better move on to details. There are no special surprises or odd solutions here:

Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi

Besides the speakers’ grids, there are power source indicators and buttons to turn on/off wireless interfaces (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) on the front panel.

There are two audio connectors on the left – for your headphones and microphone.

I really can’t understand why they have to put these connectors on the front panel – that’s not the best place for them. But it’s good that Acer moved them to the left so that the attached cables didn’t get in your way.

The rear panel is typical of Acer’s notebooks of this class:

Besides the battery which dominates the notebook’s back, there is a power connector, one USB port and a port for an external port-replicator here

Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi

The latter connector is uniform on all Acer notebooks, so you shouldn’t have any incompatibility problems.

On the right side there is an optical drive, some vent openings, and a Kensington lock.

D-Sub connector for an external monitor, video output, LAN and modem ports, two USB and one FireWire port, PCMCIA slot, card-reader and IrDA port – this is more than enough for a business notebook. The only thing I can complain about is the USB ports. There are three of them here, which is a normal number (you seldom get more than three with notebooks of this class), but they are not very conveniently placed. The two USB ports on the side panel are so close to one another that you can’t plug two large devices into them simultaneously. The back-panel connector is just not very easy to access.

You can recognize Acer by the typical curve of the keyboard:

The manufacturer claims this solution minimizes your hand strain. I won’t agree or disagree because you can only make sure of that after having worked for some time with the notebook, yet I didn’t feel any discomfort due to the peculiar shape of the keyboard. Acer’s keyboards are also distinguishable for their two currency keys:

Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi

These keys are located near the arrow keys, thus provoking erroneous presses. The fact that the same arrow keys do double duty by allowing to adjust the display brightness and sound volume settings is good since they are easy to find, but on the other side bad as you cannot adjust the brightness or sound with one hand.

The touchpad is blameless:

Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi

The power adapter is good, too:

Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi

This is a well-matched companion for a compact notebook: it is very small and light for its wattage. The only thing I don’t quite comprehend is why Acer includes such a thick power cord that would better suit a room heater than a notebook with a consumption of a few dozen watts. As a funny consequence, the coiled power cord that you connect the power adapter to the electric outlet with takes up more room than the power adapter itself!

So, the key features of the Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi are good performance, compact size, nice design, and good configuration. On the downside is the mediocre and poorly protected display (rainbow patterns appear on it if you just press on the back of the lid). The plastic of the lid is too scratchable – the notebook may lose its good looks after a very short period of intensive use (you can avoid this by carrying it in a special bag).


First I checked the notebooks in Business Winstone 2004 and Content Creation Winstone 2004 benchmarks

The results of the Photoshop CS are indicative of the overall performance of the CPU, platform and hard drive:

The well-balanced LW40 is almost as fast as the two notebooks on the new platform. Other notebooks are slower. The two slowest models shouldn’t be used to run such applications at all – they are only capable of performing office tasks like processing text and spreadsheets, browsing the Web, etc.

The next test shows what you can expect from these notebooks in gaming applications:

performed this test using the maximum display resolution of each notebook, except for the LG T1 (I used 1280x800 with it because 1440x900 would have been too much for its integrated graphics core). The Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi is the best and can cope with modern games if you don’t use the highest graphics quality settings. Among other notebooks, only models with the X600 are interesting. The Samsung X11 is second after the TravelMate 3222WXMi but I doubt it’s going to be that fast in real games.

I also published the results of the CPU subtest to show you that 3DMark03 favors the Centrino Core Duo platform. This is indicated by the Samsung X11’s results. This platform is the most promising one when it comes to games, considering that all the leading game developers have confirmed support for dual-core processors in their upcoming products.

And now, the results of the most important test:

Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi battery life

I put the results the notebooks achieved in Reader’s mode and under maximum load into one diagram because the difference between the two is indicative of how well the manufacturer set up the power-saving parameters. The Sony VGN-FJ1SR looks best here as it yields you its full computing power under max load but is very economical in Reader’s mode. Besides the Sony, there are two more leaders: LG’s T1 with a high-capacity battery and an L series Core Duo processor which features low power consumption, and ASUS W3H00V. The latter proved to be a bit of a cheater, though. Even under max load with the portable/laptop power management scheme selected this notebook never increased its CPU frequency higher than 1.3GHz.

It’s all clear with the first two diagrams, but then there are some things I’d want to single out. The LW40 is very fast in the memory test; it’s the best Centrino-based notebook I’ve seen in this benchmark. The Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi is unrivalled in the graphics subsystem test just because it has the fastest graphics adapter among the tested notebooks.

Nvidia’s GeForce Go 7400 is downright disappointing. If you need fast graphics, buy a notebook that has dedicated graphics memory. Graphics subsystems of other kind (with such suffixes as TC, HM) are not much better than integrated graphics and cannot ensure high performance in 3D. In the disk subsystem test the notebooks rank up according to the spindle rotation speed of the hard drive they use.
