Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG


An Intel Core i5 processor and switchable graphics power this 14-inch laptop to five hours battery life.

Very powerful ; Metal-finished lid ; Switchable graphics

Poor build quality ; Graphics switching complicated ; No eSATA

For wired connectivity you get a generous four USB ports, but none of them support eSATA or standby charging. These are joined by HDMI and VGA for video, a Gigabit Ethernet port, two audio jacks (1x microphone, 1x headphone/SPDIF) and a memory card...

Acer Aspire 4820TG notebook


The Acer Aspire 4820TG is a product of continued refinement from the computing giant. Acquisitions and rebranding have taken place in the attempt to move the "Acer" branded machines away from the bargain basement end of the market (where eMachines...

Fusion of power and portability, graphics power, trackpad is nice

A little too much flex at this price point

Compact, well specced and fairly lightweight (just over 2kg), the Acer Aspire 4820TG makes a tempting proposal for those who want to travel and not compromise on performance too much. An obvious downside is the construction quality, with a little too...

This almost ultraportable laptop impresses with quality components and price

Great performance ; Build quality ; Battery life

Keyboard ; Reflective screen coating

A good laptop that only just misses out on ultraportable status

Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820T review


This is a radically different model of the Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820T we reviewed recently; it doesn't have a dedicated graphics chip, instead relying on the graphics chip built into the Core i3 processor. This means it can't run 3D games, but the...

Near-desktop performance, nine-hour battery life and a great keyboard; only the screen's vertical viewing angles let it down.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG review


The Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG laptop's exterior looks exactly like the AAcer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG laptop. It has the same unassuming polished screen lid with brushed metal finish and the inside sports a black keyboard deck with a silver gray...

The Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG laptop sells for a price of £800 inc VAT with one year international warranty. It is not only thin compared to other 14-inch laptops - like the Dell Studio 14, Dell Inspiron 14R and MSI CX420 - but packs in quite a...

Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820T review


The Aspire TimelineX 4820T is the latest iteration in the thin laptop product line of Acer's mainsream laptop offering. In terms of design and looks, the new Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820T 14-inch laptop refines the looks sported by the original Aspire...

The Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820T is another successful addition to Acer's Timeline series of slim laptops with great battery life. The Aspire TimelineX 4820T offers the right balance between perfomance and features, not to mention a very slim and light...

Acer Aspire 4820TG


This I am told will give you 12 hours of battery life, I never got beyond six hours or so, so I assume there are two battery combinations available. I did test it several times hence the slightly longer than normal review period.

I am not a huge McAfee fan but of course you do need security and it works

Acer Timeline X 4820TG


Good overall battery performance, but figures do vary greatly with the CPU choices in this range.

Timeline X makes significant advances over the original Timeline models with thanks to the Core i3/i5/i7 CPU options and ATi Radeon HD 5650 graphics. Internals aside, the build quality and design of the chassis strike me as very average. More...
