Acer Aspire TimelineX 4830TG-6808

 

The Acer Aspire Timeline X 4830TG-6808 mainstream laptop is a month or two behind the curve, but it's still a solid system with all-day battery life and a reasonable price.

Long-lasting battery. Decent discrete video with automatic switching. Portable design. Comfortable keyboard. Affordable.

Older processor. Smallish hard drive.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 4830TG-6808

 

How much performance can you pack into a notebook for $729? For Acer, the answer is: a lot. The 14-inch Acer Aspire TimelineX 4830TG-6808 combines discrete Nvidia graphics and a Core i5 processor in a sub 5-pound design, which means you can get your...

Acer 4830T-6499 review: Acer 4830T-6499

 

Excellent specs for its size; good battery life; compact, lightweight.

No dedicated graphics; plastic body looks and feels cheap; keyboard and touch pad are substandard.

Acer's high-end and extremely portable 11.6-inch TimelineX 1830T-68U118 offers a great combination of processor power and features that match what you'd find on a full-size laptop.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 4830T review

 

A budget laptop that's small in size, but big on battery life – if you need an optical drive, the 4830T is a great choice

BEAST BATTERY

 

This is a great laptop. I bring it to school and it lasts me through all my classes. I don't even have to bring my charger. Depending on the usage, it easily lasts me 6-9 hours. The speakers aren't very loud so don't expect to be able to watch a movie...

Amazing battery lasts me all day ; My favorite color is blue

Not very light ; Speakers are not loud

Great laptop packed with great features

 

I have never been a big fan of Acer laptops but when I set out to buy one recently this one met all of my criteria so I decided to give it a try. I'm very happy with it so far. It is a solid well built laptop with plenty of features including an...

Very nice value laptop

 

My AS4830TG did take a fall from a table... the right hinge took the brunt of it, and the chrome disk covering the hinge screw was bent. I removed it (double-stick tape), and reapplied—it's barely noticeable, and the hinge works fine. Upgrades: I...

I'm writing this 5-egg review based on the current price of 350 clams. I own the AS4830TG-6808 which is identical save for two improvements: i5 processor and discrete graphics (NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M). This model with the i3 and built in 3000 graphics...

With the proper expectations, I see no cons. You will need to spend significantly more money on a laptop if you expect to play the latest games or do video production, etc. Most laptops will suffer from a drop (it's not a "Toughbook"). Be careful and...

The laptop came with the battery switch in the OFF position, so the battery was not recognized. I had to open the expansion bay and flip it to ON for the battery to work. *When I tested the battery, the computer was set to Balanced mode, and the screen...

Consumer review by: Tweebs (newegg.com)

Sad to see it's discontinued.

 

I'm tempted to recommend an Acer for a VP here at work. She is asking my opinion on a new notebook for her. I showed her mine and she seemed to like it enough to want to buy one.

We've had it for a couple months now. This has been a marvelous notebook, especially for the price. I love the core-i3 processor. The hard drive, even though it's slow, works great for what we need it to do. We haven't had any problems with it besides...

I really haven't seen any beside the wireless issue that we resolved. That wasn't the notebook's fault though
