Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3830TG-6431

 

The Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3830TG-6431 offers a list of strengths as long as its unwieldy name. Acer started with a thin, attractive shell for this 13.3-inch laptop, then added the latest performance components and a long-lasting battery. The result?...

Thin, attractive chassis ; Surprisingly good 3D and productivity performance ; Above-average battery life, audio quality

No optical drive ; Battery not user-replaceable ; No keyboard backlight

This 13.3-inch notebook offers an attractively thin design and strong performance in a low-cost package. Just be aware of the sealed-in battery and lack of a DVD drive.

Thin and light, second-generation Intel Core processor, good battery life

Acer Quality & the company service

 

The laptop has done all that I have asked and it fits great in my backpack. Small enough to not be cumbersome packing it to classes and work, big enough & enough performance to exceed any netbook.
