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

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.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG-6847


With its switchable AMD graphics, trendy design, and solid battery life, the TimelineX AS4820TG is one impressive thin-and-light notebook.

Acer Laptop Overcharges and Under Delivers


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

Acer TimelineX 4820T review


Pulling the 14-inch Acer TimelineX 4820T from its box, one thing went through our mind: this could be the perfect thin and light laptop. The $717 system is about an inch thick, weighs only 4.7 pounds, and still has an onboard DVD drive. And unlike the...

Very thin, light chassis for a 14-inch laptop ; Standard voltage Core i3 CPU ; Over five hours of battery life

Flexy keyboard ; Poor vertical viewing angles ; Crappy build quality

Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4820TG-7805


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...

Lightweight. Slim construction. Great battery life. Strong internal components don't sacrifice performance for long life

Glossy display reflects

Acer has packed great hardware into its Aspire TimelineX AS4820TG-7805, an efficient and stylish laptop that packs easily and last for hours.
