Acer TravelMate 2423NWXMi review notebook performance benchmark

This model is not like the rest of the notebooks discussed in this review. It doesn’t seem to differ much from the above-described TravelMate 3222WXMi in appearance, but the design concept is the only thing they have in common. The 2423NWXMi is a completely different computer:

And this sticker explains why:

This is a low-end 14” widescreen notebook we decided to include in this review for a very simple reason. We just want to see if such notebooks have any chance at all in this market sector and if purchasing it makes any sense. You do save a lot of money: the 3222WXMi costs about $1800 whereas the 2423NWXMi can be acquired for only $800. The difference in price is impressive, but we’re yet to see how the difference in configuration (see the table of specifications) is going to tell on the performance and if the low-end model can ensure you any comfort at work. You’ll get the answers in the Test Results section. Right now let’s have a closer look at this model.

The notebook doesn’t look any worse than its more expensive mate. It is the Acer style everywhere down to the color and type of the plastic. This is good in the sense that the notebook’s case doesn’t show any traces of cost reduction. I guess it is next to impossible to tell the two models from Acer at a glance:

The protruding bottom part and the different design of the front panel are the only points where the TravelMate 2423NWXMi differs from the 3222WXMi.

Acer TravelMate 2423NWXMi overview

Besides the integrated speakers, the front panel carries two groups of elements. Audio connectors and power indicators are in the middle:

And Bluetooth and Wi-Fi sliders are on the left.

It’s indeed much easier to turn an interface off with a special button rather than in the devices list. The Bluetooth switch shouldn’t mislead you, however. The notebook doesn’t support this interface. The switch is here because the same platform is used for other, more advanced notebook configurations which do include a Bluetooth adapter. It’s no secret that all low-end notebooks are in fact midrange models stripped of everything the manufacturer thought unnecessary in a low-end product. Therefore you can often see such rudiments as dummy switches or sealed FireWire ports – it would be unreasonable to design a completely new case for an inexpensive notebook.

This model has quite a lot of audio connectors for its category – a line input besides the traditional headphones output and microphone input. But as I said above, I don’t think it’s right to put audio connectors on the front panel. In the above-described model, they are placed at the very left of the panel, but here they are right in the middle of it and the attached cables get in your way. The indicators that report what power source the notebook is currently using (battery or mains) are easily readable and properly placed.

The back panel is almost completely occupied by the notebook’s battery:

In the remaining space there is a D-Sub output for an external monitor and a power adapter connector.

Not too many things on the right panel:

The keyboard is the same as in the more expensive model:

Acer TravelMate 2423NWXMi overview

I’ve nothing to add to what I said about this keyboard in the previous section.

The block itself is the same as the one on the 3222WXMi model. The touchpad is identical, too:

Acer TravelMate 2423NWXMi overview

I didn’t like the display of the more expensive TravelMate, but this display is even worse! I just couldn’t find anything good about it. However, this shouldn’t repel you from purchasing this notebook since the display is quite sufficient for processing text and surfing the Web and you are very unlikely to find anything much better in this price category. But you won’t enjoy watching movies or viewing photos on this display, which may be crucial if this inexpensive notebook is going to be the only PC at your home.

The bottom panel has a somewhat neater appearance than the 3222WXMi’s.

The battery looks exactly the same…

The capacity is a little lower than that of the battery of the more expensive 3222WXMi. This is not a complaint because they just had to save on something after all. The power adapter is the same as is included with the above-described 3222WXMi.

All in all, the opportunity to get a notebook of this form-factor and weight for only $800 is very tempting despite all its drawbacks. Our tests are yet to show how it compares with more advanced models in performance, but I am sure notebooks like this one will be a success because there are ever more people who’d want to buy a notebook but aren’t willing to pay for their first more than $1000. I hope such users will not be disappointed and will switch eventually to better models.


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 2423NWXMi 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.
