Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T-68U118 Review - PCWorld


Back in September, we mentioned that Acer was planning to update its TimelineX series by cramming an Intel Core i7 processor into an 11.6-inch ultraportable laptop. Well, the company succeeded. The Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T-68U118 packs a ton of...

Very light, thin, and easy to carry

No discrete graphics

The keyboard and trackpad on Acer's latest ultraportable laptop aren't perfect, but the sacrifices involved are acceptable when the result is such a sleek machine.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T-3721


There's a lot to love about the Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T. At about $700, it's extremely affordable for an ultraportable, offers great workaday performance, has excellent high-def video playback, and runs for over 6 hours on its battery. However, the...

Good battery life ; Fast for an ultraportable

Touchpad is too small

An affordable ultraportable that's long on workaday performance but iffy on input ergonomics.

Acer Aspire 1830T-3721


Acer's latest CULV laptop, the Aspire 1830T-3721, is based on a Core i5 processor, and its 8 hours of battery life makes ideal for travel.

Full size keyboard. New CULV processor based on Core i5 technology. 500GB hard drive. Very good battery life. Travel-friendly. Good performance scores among peers.

Small touchpad and mouse buttons aren't for big handed people.

Acer Aspire AS1830T-68U118


Handbrake, which measures the time it takes to transcode a video, favored the AS1830T-68U118, with a score of 4 minutes 12 seconds; the MacBook Air (23:23) took almost 6 times longer to finish this test. The AS1830T-68U118's Cinebench R11.5 (1.88) and...

Full-size keyboard. New CULV processor based on Core i7 technology. Excellent battery scores. Travel-friendly. HDMI included. Top of the class performance scores

Undersized touchpad and mouse buttons. A bit pricey

The Acer Aspire AS1830T-68U118 is an 11-inch laptop that runs on an Intel Core i7 Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage (CULV) processor and delivered over 8 hours of battery life.

Acer Aspire AS1830T-3935


There are two ways to look at the Acer Aspire AS1830T-3935 ($649 list, $299 with two-year contract) laptop, a configuration sold exclusively at AT&T stores. The first is in comparison to other laptops similarly-equipped with a consumer ultra low...

Incredibly lightweight. Decent Intel Core i3 processor. Full-size keyboard. Faster than the netbooks AT&T sells. Built-in 3G modem. Great subsidized price. Free smartphone

Just 2GB of memory. Small hard drive. Weak battery life. Poor performance scores. Need to commit to a 2-year data plan contract to get the laptop at subsidized price. Small touchpad

The Aspire AS1830T-3935 laptop is faster than any netbook on AT&T's stores shelves, but cutting corners on memory and hard drive capacities make it tough to recommend over other CULV laptops.

This 11-inch ultraportable squeezes Core i7 power into a slim and attractive 3-pound design.

With its refresh of the TimelineX series, Acer has created another compelling ultraportable. The 1830T's fast performance and long battery life make the notebook an excellent companion for students and business users who are always on the go. If you...

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T-3721


A good-looking ultraportable that packs Core i5 power and nearly 6 hours of battery life.

With the TimelineX 1830T, Acer continues its line of powerful and small ultraportables. This machine looks good and offers excellent performance and nearly 6 hours of endurance. However, $699 is nothing to sneeze at. Those on a budget will likely...

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T


Acer's 11.6-inch Aspire Timeline series has produced a number of strong performers below $600. But how much more could an extra Benjamin buy? The latest model in the line, the TimelineX 1830T, features the new Intel Core i5-430UM processor. This ULV...

Review Acer Aspire 1830T Subnotebook


Energy Drink. Peeved because your netbook is too slow? Acer has t

Low weight of 1.36 kg; Good performance; Good battery life; Low power consumption; Low system noise; SPDIF-out

Display not AR coated; Treble-prone sound

Despite the topnotch performance, the battery life is just enough for almost five hours of surfing and watching movies.
