Review Acer Aspire 4820TG (i7/HD 6550) Notebook

 

Radeon Update. Acer equips the luxury version of its TimelineX wi

Good 3D performance for 14"; Strong application performance; SSD 160 GB; Low system noise; Low waste heat; Low power consumption; Good battery runtimes

TFT is reflective; TFT too dark for outdoors; Poor viewing angles; Few interfaces; Long battery recharge time; Poor keyboard feedback

Acer TimelineX 3820TG: now also with HD 6550M; TimelineX 5820TG: same looks in 15.6 inches, Nvidia alternatives. Asus N53SV: similarly strong gaming performance (GT 540M) and the latest Sandy Bridge processor; Samsung RF510-SO2DE: less 3D, but better...

Review Acer Aspire 4820TG Timeline X Notebook

 

That significant eXtra. Acers new 14 inch high-class performer is

Pleasant design; Compact and light case; High-quality surface; Comfortable touchpad; Long battery life; Good performance with programs and games; Good display brightness

Clearly audible when under heavy usage; Keyboard gives way under pressure; Display bordering can be dirtied easily; Glossy display results in modest viewing angles; High black value and disappointing contrast; Poor sound quality; Poor placement of...

Still, for those users who want a balanced performance, mobility, good battery life should consider the investment of 900 euros for the purchase of the Aspire 4820TG.

Review: Acer Aspire 4820TG

 

Acer has long been the go-to bargain laptop. But what happens when the price gets high and performance stays flat?

Bright screen, though clarity is a bit muddy. Lightweight for its category. Good for gaming

A little pricey for an Acer. Acceptable yet uninspired performance. System likes to override Windows power settings without asking. Keyboard travel too short

The Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4820TG-7805 ($800 street) checks off all the right boxes on my list—slim, stylish, efficient, and powerful. Embracing an Intel Core i5 processor and ATI Mobility Radeon graphics, and then wrapping them up in brushed...
