Review Acer Aspire 1830T Subnotebook

 

Energy Drink. Peeved because your netbook is too slow? Acer has t ...

Low weight of 1.36 kg ; Good performance ; Good battery life ; Low power consumption ; Low system noise ; SPDIF-out

Display not AR coated ; Treble-prone sound

Despite the topnotch performance, the battery life is just enough for almost five hours of surfing and watching movies

Acer Aspire 1830T Timeline X Review

 

The onboard speakers were lap-firing and sounded very tinny. The speakers had no low frequency response to speak of and just a small hint of midrange. This is fine for listening to Windows alert sounds or watching a YouTube clip, but not for...

Good performance ; Excellent battery life ; Thin and light design

Uncomfortable touchpad and touchpad buttons ; Lacks gaming capability

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T ultraportable laptop

 

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T review: an 11.6in laptop with great mobility

Light, less than 30mm thick, decent performance for a small laptop

Keyboard could be better, touchpad is too small, reflective screen

The Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T is an ultraportable notebook that's light, very mobile and provides decent performance for office and Web tasks, as well as some multimedia tasks. We think it should be considered by people who have considered getting a...

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T-38U4G64nki review

 

The 11.6in screen may be too small for some people, but otherwise the 1.4kg 1830T has good enough performance, excellent battery life and a massive hard disk.
