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


If you want a netbook because of the convenient size and amazing battery life but need better multitasking and video performance than what a cheap netbook offers then the Acer Aspire 1830T might be the perfect notebook for you. Keep reading to see what...

Good performance ; Excellent battery life ; Thin and light design

Uncomfortable touchpad and touchpad buttons ; Lacks gaming capability

The Acer Aspire 1830T Timeline X is an attractive notebook that successfully delivers netbook convenience and notebook performance in a single package. The question then becomes, "Is that enough?" There's no denying that $900 buys you an ultraportable...

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T-68U118 Review - PCWorld


Back in September, we mentioned that Acer was planning to update its TimelineX series by cramming an Intel Core i7 processor into an 11.6-inch ultraportable laptop. Well, the company succeeded. The Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T-68U118 packs a ton of...

Very light, thin, and easy to carry

No discrete graphics

The keyboard and trackpad on Acer's latest ultraportable laptop aren't perfect, but the sacrifices involved are acceptable when the result is such a sleek machine.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T (68U118)


This 11-inch ultraportable squeezes Core i7 power into a slim and attractive 3-pound design.

With its refresh of the TimelineX series, Acer has created another compelling ultraportable. The 1830T's fast performance and long battery life make the notebook an excellent companion for students and business users who are always on the go. If you...

Acer Aspire TimelineX AS1830T-68U118


The new 11.6-inch MacBook Air isn't the only contender for the high-end ultraportable crown. The $899 Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T-68U118 looks like a Netbook from the outside, but inside, its specs are utterly upscale. An Intel Core i7-680UM dual-core...

Excellent specs for its size; good battery life; compact, lightweight.

No dedicated graphics; plastic body looks and feels cheap; keyboard and touch pad are substandard.

Acer's high-end and extremely portable 11.6-inch TimelineX 1830T-68U118 offers a great combination of processor power and features that match what you'd find on a full-size laptop.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T Review


There was a time when an ultraportable notebook would invariably cost well in excess of $1,000 and offer performance suited to little more than emailing. Now Acer's Aspire TimelineX AS1830T-68U118 drops onto the scene, a sub-$900 11.6-inch...

Still, a little work in the Uninstall Programs menu and much of the bloatware is gone, and you’re left with one of the best value, most appealing ultraportables around today. Priced at $899.99 it’s hard to argue with the Acer Aspire TimelineX...

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T-3721


There's a lot to love about the Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T. At about $700, it's extremely affordable for an ultraportable, offers great workaday performance, has excellent high-def video playback, and runs for over 6 hours on its battery. However, the...

Good battery life ; Fast for an ultraportable

Touchpad is too small

An affordable ultraportable that's long on workaday performance but iffy on input ergonomics.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T-3721


A good-looking ultraportable that packs Core i5 power and nearly 6 hours of battery life.

With the TimelineX 1830T, Acer continues its line of powerful and small ultraportables. This machine looks good and offers excellent performance and nearly 6 hours of endurance. However, $699 is nothing to sneeze at. Those on a budget will likely...

Acer Aspire 1830T-3721


It was only recently that Intel updated its CULV processors to the latest Core technology. Since then, only a handful of systems have used these processors, as they're still pricey. The 1830T-3721 runs on an Intel Core i5-430um, and though its 1.2GHz...

Full size keyboard. New CULV processor based on Core i5 technology. 500GB hard drive. Very good battery life. Travel-friendly. Good performance scores among peers

Small touchpad and mouse buttons aren't for big handed people

The Acer Aspire 1830T-3721 is an 11-inch laptop running on Intel's latest CULVs and delivers over 8 hours of battery life.

Acer Aspire AS1830T-68U118


Handbrake, which measures the time it takes to transcode a video, favored the AS1830T-68U118, with a score of 4 minutes 12 seconds; the MacBook Air (23:23) took almost 6 times longer to finish this test. The AS1830T-68U118's Cinebench R11.5 (1.88) and...

Full-size keyboard. New CULV processor based on Core i7 technology. Excellent battery scores. Travel-friendly. HDMI included. Top of the class performance scores

Undersized touchpad and mouse buttons. A bit pricey

The Acer Aspire AS1830T-68U118 is an 11-inch laptop that runs on an Intel Core i7 Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage (CULV) processor and delivered over 8 hours of battery life.
