Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T (4657)

 

It's hard to believe that a 15.6-inch system could be considered highly portable, but that's what Acer has done with the Aspire Timeline 5810T-4657. This mainstream notebook is only an inch thick and weighs less than six pounds, yet Acer manages to...

Acer Aspire 5810 Timeline (AS5810TZ-4657) Review and Ratings

 

This budget laptop will please business productivity-app users who need long battery life, but performance-conscious buyers should opt for a machine with more pep.

Superior battery life for its size ; Plenty of ports ; Fingerprint-resistant finish ; Inexpensive

Sluggish overall performance ; Slightly pale screen ; Subpar audio playback

Acer Aspire 5810TG-354G32Mn review

 

A stylish and usable budget laptop with great graphics, but flawed in a few key areas

Good graphics power ; Build quality ; 16:9 screen ; HDMI port ; Usability

Single core CPU ; Windows Vista ; Limited battery

A good laptop for those looking for a multimedia machine but if you need office performance and battery life you might want to look at some rivals

Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T review

 

Maybe not the most powerful of laptops, the 5810T's battery life is ahead of the pack

Long battery life ; Slim and light

Not that powerful ; Keyboard takes getting used to

Overall this is a nice, reasonably powerful laptop, whose light weight and large battery life means it is a great companion for working on in the great outdoors

Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T-354G32Mn

 

We check out the biggest laptop in Acer's Timeline series to see how it stacks up.

Along the front we find a memory card reader and a large colour-changing LED that indicates if the 5810T is charging or the battery is getting low. To the right is the optical drive, a fourth USB port and Gigabit Ethernet socket.

Acer Aspire Timeline 5810TG review

 

Acer's Aspire Timeline 5810TG is a strange mix. It uses low-voltage components, which are typically used in lightweight ultra-portables, but its 15.6in screen and 2.4kg weight put it more in line with standard budget laptops.

Its long battery life is impressive, but poor performance and a large case let this laptop down. We'd have preferred a more powerful processor.

Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T review

 

The Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T 15in-screen laptop offers an uncanny balance of performance, price and long, long battery life, all in a relatively thin and light package

Acer should be onto a winner with the new Timeline series, if this 15in Aspire 5810T is anything to go by. It’s usefully light, has a great range of practical features such as 802.11n wireless, DVD writer, USB ports aplenty and digital video out. The...

Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T review

 

Slim and sleek for a 15.6in laptop, and good-looking too, but the Timeline 5810T falls just short of a recommendation.

The Timeline 5810T’s biggest problem, though, is the competition. It may have good battery life, ergonomics and surprising portability for such a large-screened laptop, but others are capable of putting in a more intensive shift. Add in the fact that...

Product Specifications

More than 8 hours battery life (all day computing), ultra-light weight and sophisticated design, this is the Aspire Timeline. With the Aspire Timeline series, Acer has taken a big, if not the biggest step forward in the concept of mobility, an area where finding the perfect equilibrium between light weight and autonomy has always been the number one priority. The Aspire Timeline series was conceived around the duration of the battery and introduces an entirely new way to render the system lighter, more efficient and less harmful to the environment. From now on you can turn on your Aspire Timeline in the morning and turn it off in the evening without ever having to charge it! Light as your time can be! The beautifully crafted Aspire 5810 - one of Acer's Timeline series of energy-conscious notebooks - proudly features lower power consumption for long-lasting, energy-efficient portability. Made for truly modern mobile work and play, this full-featured yet affordable 15.6" notebook packs at least eight hours of earth-friendly battery life.
