Acer Aspire Timeline X 5830T

 

Acer's Timeline small business laptops mix both business and pleasure; you get a good quality, if a little basic, machine for not much cash. The latest 15-inch model adds good looks to the mix, along with a Sandy Bridge Core i3 processor and plenty of...

Good looking blue laptop, plenty of memory, good battery life

Too much bundled software, sealed battery, small touchpad, no discrete graphics

The latest model of Acer's small business laptop is a good looking machine, with much of the power you need - and at a very reasonable price for its specification.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830T

 

A 15.6in laptop with "all-day" battery life and more angles than a conman.

Great battery life ; Solid build ; Comfy keyboard layout

Acquired taste" design ; More power available at same price

One natty on-body extra is the battery indicator button. This lets you see roughly how much battery charge is left. It's completely useless while the 5830T is powered-up of course - Windows 7 could tell you much more accurately - but it works when the...

Acer Timeline X 5830T

 

Review Acer has ploughed itself a nice furrow over the last few years, building nice-looking, well-made laptops. The 5830T might lack the instant recognition and wow-factor of the Apple MacBook Pro [1], but there's no arguing that it's a nice-looking...

This is a decent system from Acer. It compromises on computational welly, but offers more than enough memory to keep things running smoothly. The only people who won’t be wholly enamoured with it are likely to be serious power users - it’s not...

Fast start and good battery life

Nightmare keyboard, far too easy to make mistakes resulting in long delays

Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830T-2336G75Mn

 

Design, style, keyboard, excellent virtual dolby surround for movies, not the usual black slab laptop.

Bit heavy, cant disable trackpad "tapping" function (bit frustrating at times, could always hook up a mouse). Cd battery tray is pop out type, easy to break. No subwoofer, audio quality average for a laptop (if audio is important) be careful with the...

Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830T-2336G75Mn

 

I like everything about the computer although it is quite heavy the good points far outweigh the negative one.

If only it came with an instruction book to read before use it would I feel be beneficial to most people.
