Great little personal laptop.
11 January 2011
Summary: This is a great little computer "laptop". The only bad thing is that it does not have a CAPS LOCK indicator. It was a big let down to me a the beginning, but I have kind of gotten used to no needing the caps lock. With the CL indicator it would be the perfect laptop for me.
Great small laptop, but the keyboard stopped working after a few months.

Summary: If you are wondering whether to buy a laptop or netbook, this Acer might be just what you need. Its thin, light, the battery lasts for at least 6 hours and yet it's pretty comfortable to use. As you all know, life is not perfect, so my keyboard broke after only 5 months of use (half of the keys stopped working). Since i live outside the USA, i don't even wanna bother trying to use my warranty. UPDATE (13th of June - 2011) I found the keyboard on ebay for only 10 dollars.
Summary: Was shipped the AS3810TZ-4402, not the -4406. The difference is, the -4402 has a single core processor (lower performance, cheaper unit). I saw another review where this store had done the same thing. I kept the computer; I like it; but I did not receive what I ordered. The computer itself is great. It is very, very light, fits in a briefcase, and runs for 8 hours on one battery charge.
Summary: acer laptop timeline is excellent, is thin, fast and very functional. is an ideal size. In short, my computer loves me and made a good buy. although I have some objections: first, have not installed the program office.
Summary: I bought this to replace my old 12.1" Averatec. Installing Ubuntu 9.10 is pretty easy. The only thing does not work right after installation was wi-fi. Just need to connect through ethernet to download wi-fi driver. Everything works fine after that. This laptop does not have bluetooth. I inserted my old USB IOGEAR dongle. It works just fine. It paired with my Motorola cell phone and IOGEAR bluetooth mouse without issue. I was able to browse files on cell phones.
Summary: You can really squeeze 8 hours out of it! The power will not overwhelm you but it's great for basic computing. Great laptop for college students, presentations, or business travelers. Some negatives are no Bluetooth (I wanted it to tether w/ my phone) and the speakers are too low. The build quality is average but has some nice touches (such as the aluminum lid). It's ultra light at 3.5 pounds. It doesn't come with a dvd drive but I never seemed to use dvds anymore.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display, Quiet
Good compromise: size, weight, price, performance and battery life

Summary: Very happy with this purchase. Bought as a second computer to use mainly for web browsing and media applications such as iTunes. The performance is surprisingly good, probably due to the combination of the SU4100 processor, 4 GB RAM and Windows 7. This thing boots up and loads web pages lightning fast compared with my more powerful laptop (which has Vista). 720p videos from YouTube run without a hitch.
Summary: Bought this laptop for church use. Mostly for powerpoint presentation during the sermon. Long battery life is the reason for this purchase due to lack of outlets when doing the presentation. This the lightest laptop and display is unbelievable. Would recommend this, now, if I could convince my wife that I need one for myself :-).
Pros: Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display, Quiet
