Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3830TG-6431 review: Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3830TG-6431

 

Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3830TG-6431

At under $800, the ; is one of the most affordable thin laptops we've seen. It makes few compromises and packs impressive Nvidia graphics into a very compact, portable design.

The lack of an optical drive is frustrating, since other laptops of similar size such as the Sony Vaio S and Toshiba Portege R835 do include one.

The aggressively priced Acer Aspire TimelineX 3830TG-6431's combination of gaming-ready graphics and a fast processor in a 13-inch body offers a great punch for a good price, provided you can live without a DVD drive.

Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3820T-5246 review: Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3820T-5246

 

Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3820T-5246

Thin design; long battery life; large keyboard.

No optical drive; not as exceptional as it used to be.

Acer's TimelineX is still a slim-profile, long-lasting 13-inch laptop, but it's no longer the only contender in that category.

Thin-and-light laptop

 

Many sleek ultraportable laptops cost well over $1,000, but the 4-pound Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3830TG-6431 delivers a lightweight and sleek design for much less. Reviewers say the Acer laptop is an excellent value -- it's stocked with a...

Acer Aspire TimelineX 3820TG review – power and style

 

If you would have told me a couple of years ago I would one day praise the looks and build quality of an Acer laptop, I would have lough in your face so hard. Still, that day has come today, with the Acer Aspir...

All in all, I have to say this 13.3 inch TimelineX is an interesting portable laptop. Never thought I would get to say that, but I actually like it. It is solid built, sturdy and powerful. Plus, it is very light and compact, and that battery life...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Nice size, nice performance

 

Overall, if you have decided 13.3" is the screensize you want and can live without a DVD drive, then you will be hard pressed to get a better price/performance. This is my first machine without an optical drive and I only miss it once in a while, but...

Thin, light, very portable, crisp graphics, aesthetically pleasing, quiet, fast newer generation CPU for the screensize. The battery life, as advertised, is very good. Although good luck getting 8 hours from it. With moderate use, I can get about 5...

The mousepad is really sensitive! So, like when I'm surfing sometimes links get unintentionally triggered. The form factor is so small and combined with the hyper mousepad, it accidentally gets brushed over... so beware lazy palms. I'm still trying to...
