Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T-38U4G64nki review


Acer's TimelineX series has impressed us since its launch two years ago. The new 1830T is the smallest in the range, with an 11.6in display, but it includes some technologies that you'd expect to see on larger and more expensive laptops, such as an...

The 11.6in screen may be too small for some people, but otherwise the 1.4kg 1830T has good enough performance, excellent battery life and a massive hard disk.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T review


The 11.6in Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T is an ultraportable laptop that's only a tiny bit bigger than a netbook but has more CPU power and memory under the hood.

Overall, we like the Aspire TimelineX 1830T for its small size and excellent mobility, but due to this it is a little uncomfortable to use. Its keyboard isn't great and its touchpad is small, but in time you will probably get used to them. We think...

Light, less than 30mm thick, decent performance for a small laptop

Keyboard could be better, touchpad is too small, reflective screen

The Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T is an ultraportable notebook that's light, very mobile and provides decent performance for office and Web tasks, as well as some multimedia tasks. We think it should be considered by people who have considered getting a...

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.

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.
