Review Acer Aspire 3810T Notebook
1 January 2010
Excerpt: Mobility at any cost? Acer has a 13.3 inch sized notebook from the Timeline series in its range, which should especially convince with its long battery life - the Aspire 3810T. In our review you can read if this concept is successful or if the efficiency is affected too much.
Pros: Smashing workmanship, Chic design, Good keyboard, Very quiet, Pleasantly cool, Light, Enormous battery life, The excellent battery life. It doesn't matter if it's WLAN surfing or watching a movie, the 3810T lasts a surprisingly long time. Due to its light weight, it also advances to an almost ideal mobile chaperone.
Cons: No drive, Strongly reflective display, Keyboard susceptible to dirt, Poor performance, Mediocre Sound, Insufficient display stability, Bad operating system selection, A DVD drive would have been very possible at a size of 13.3 inches.
Excerpt: Thin and lights have always been a great choice for the road-warrior, weighing in around three to four pounds, but most of them have had their flaws such as a reduced keyboard or small display. Acer recently introduced the new Timeline series of notebooks, ranging in size from 11- to 15-inch models. How do they perform? We’ll give you the low-down on one of the models after the break.
Pros: Thin and light enclosure., Long battery life., Decent performance for its class.
Cons: Bluetooth is not standard., Trackpad button is stiff.
Conclusion: The Acer Aspire Timeline 3810T was certainly an impressive notebook. It’s lightweight yet feature-rich, offers decent computing power (Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM) and a long lasting battery life. On the down side, the slim nature of the 3810T meant it had to sacrifice the inclusion of an optical drive while the buttons for the touchpad seems requires some improvement. RRP for the Acer Aspire Timeline 3810T Notebook is RM 3,299 at the time of this article.
Summary: The Acer Aspire Timeline 3810T is a handsome-looking portable masquerading as something more powerful than it truly is - and that could be a bit of a problem for this slightly oversized netbook. The large, comfortable keys and the 13.3in screen could lull you into thinking that this portable is mighty. It is, by netbook standards - but that's about it. That said, the Timeline is a pretty solid deal, and a decent-looking machine.
Summary: As long as you don’t need an optical drive, we highly recommend the Timeline 3810T. In an increasingly crowded 13-inch notebook category, the Acer Aspire Timeline 3810T stands out, thanks to the combination of its low $899 price tag and astounding eight-plus hours of battery life. Consumers should also consider the $799 MSI X340, which doesn't perform as well, but is less expensive and has a longer battery life.
