Review Acer Aspire 3810T Notebook


Mobility at any cost? Acer has a 13.3 inch size notebook from the ...

Smashing workmanship ; Chic design ; Good keyboard ; Very quiet ; Pleasantly cool ; Light ; Enormous battery life

No drive ; Strongly reflective display ; Keyboard susceptible to dirt ; Poor performance ; Mediocre Sound ; Insufficient display stability ; Bad operating system selection

How Acer could think of combining a single core CPU with Windows Vista. It is a definite sign for an unconsidered system configuration if the notebook is already overstrained at the smallest tasks. This should be tested before hand

Acer Timeline: Half the Price, Half the Style of the Ma...


Acer's Timeline series has almost everything the MacBook Air has ... except hipster cachet and an $1,800 price tag.

Big, bright screen equally suited to work and play. Large, comfortable keyboard. Multitouch gesture support built in to the touchpad (hello, pinch to zoom!). Integrated webcam surprisingly clear, and capable of up to 720p video. Well-cooled so it won't...

Bland, gray looks do nothing to help your style quotient. No optical drive: How am I going to rip my Netflix DVDs!? Keyboard a little spongy in the middle

Acer Aspire Timeline 3810T Review


Acer's Timeline range of notebooks spans the gamut from 13.3-inch ULV ultraportable to 15.6-inch mainstream laptop, promising prolonged battery life with an affordable price tag. The company sent over their Aspire Timeline 3810T, a 13.3-inch 1.4GHz ULV...

As with all of these ULV ultraportables, the Timeline 3810T hovers in-between CULV netbooks and full-sized notebooks, and it’s arguable whether you’re getting significant functionality over the cheaper models. Still, for its highly usable keyboard and...

Acer Timeline 3810T


The Acer Aspire 3810T, aka the Acer Timeline, has two things going for it: This model is one of the first laptops out the gate to use an Intel CULV processor (in this case, the 1.4GHz U9400). The 3810T also has a sharp style that's sure to grab...

Great performance for its class ; Thoughtful software selection

Keyboard is a potential dirt magnet ; A little too much bloatware

Overall, the Acer Aspire 3810T is a handsome-looking portable masquerading as something more powerful than it truly is--and that could be a bit of a problem for this slightly oversized netbook. The large, comfortable keys and the 13.3-inch screen could...

Great performance for its class ; Thoughtful software selection

Keyboard is a potential dirt magnet ; A little too much bloatware

This Intel-powered portable, which camps between netbook and notebook, delivers decent performance and style in spades.

Acer Aspire Timeline 3810T (6415)


Lightweight design. Eight hours of battery life. Good-enough performance. What else would you want from a budget ultraportable?

Thin, lightweight design ; Extra-long battery life ; Fast hard drive ; Excellent HD webcam ; Strong wireless range

Lacks optical drive ; Stiff touch button ; Speakers not very loud

The 720p webcam is one of the best we’ve tested on a notebook recently. While some laptops’ 1.3-MP cameras struggle to produce smooth video at even VGA resolution, the 3810T's high-def video looked fluid, with little, if any, lag. Likewise, our still...

Acer Aspire Timeline AS3810T (6415)


The Acer Aspire AS3810T (6415) ($900 street) isn't the first to sport a metallic chassis or the increasingly popular "chiclet" keyboard, but it may well be the new recipe for ultra-thin laptops. The AS3810T is part of Acer's new Timeline series,...

All-day battery life. Excellent value proposition. Well designed and sturdy. Excellent typing experience. Plenty of memory. Huge hard drive. A win for frugal shoppers

Mouse buttons are difficult to use. Won't win any speed races

The Aspire AS3810T (6415), Acer's new ultraportable, won't win any speed races and doesn't have an optical drive, but you get over 8 hours of battery life for just $900.

Thin and lights have always been a great choice for the road-warrior, weighing in around three to four pounds, but most of them have had their flaws such as a reduced keyboard or small display. Acer recently introduced the new Timeline series of...

Acer Aspire Timeline 3810T Notebook Review


With us today is Acer's Aspire Timeline 3810 – the slim notebook with long battery life. How would this notebook fare?

The Acer Aspire Timeline 3810T was certainly an impressive notebook. It's lightweight yet feature-rich, offers decent computing power (Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM) and a long lasting battery life.

Acer Aspire Timeline AS3810T-6415


The Acer Aspire Timeline AS3810T delivers great battery life in a lightweight 13-inch chassis, and it's reasonably priced. However, it comes up short in terms of features and performance.

Great battery life; affordable; bright, LED-backlit display

Below-average performance; no optical drive; noisy cooling fan

If you’re looking for a highly portable notebook that can last the better part of a workday without needing a battery charge, the Acer Aspire Timeline AS3810T-6415 delivers the goods. It's not the best performer around, but its slender chassis and...

Product Specifications

More than 8 hours battery life, ultra-light weight and sophisticated design, all at the right price. This is the Aspire Timeline.
