Find something better for the money

Steve "steve0321", Amazon
29 November 2011
  • Summary: This is my second Acer laptop. The first one held up well, but had poor battery life. The Timeline-x's purported battery life got my attention, so I purchased this model. After only 5 months of use the case top (lcd lid) separated (plastic on one side, brush aluminum the other), exposing wiring, and...

BIOS Boot problems

Gustavo Garcia Plaza, Amazon
31 October 2011
  • Summary: I have an issue that I saw other people is having too. This laptop does not start ok sometimes. It gets stuck and the fan starts running at full speed without loading Windows. Acer recommends to re-install Windows to factory default, but I have this issue from the beginning, and I have seen other...

Too good to be true...

Gift "IT Guy", Amazon
19 April 2011
  • Summary: I've been shopping around and comparing models from different manufacturers, but keep coming back to this model. I was attracted to the non-assuming professional appearance and slim design. I don't care much for the shiny plastic models that seem to proliferate at the local Best Buy.

10 months review follow up poor reliability and hard drive holds it back

beyondthehype, Amazon
26 March 2011
  • Summary: EDIT: Clearly there is some design flaw as only 10 months of light usage the laptop is already locking at random intervals. Basically the system locks and the fan spins at full speed, forcing me to hard shot off the laptop. Seems Im not the only one with this problem.

Great Concept - but I got a Lemon

Doc D, Amazon
18 December 2010
  • Summary: I purchased an ACER 5820T back in July as it had all the features I wanted (light weight, big screen, Linux Compatible (dual boot), touch pad, battery life, etc.) BUT I have had nothing but problems. It has been with Acer repair about the same amount of time as with me.

Computer shipped with Microsoft 2007 Trial Version

Stephen C. Hammond, Amazon
9 September 2010
  • Summary: Please update the software on your laptops. The Acer TimelineX we purchased for my son had the trial version of Office 2007. I had to explain to my 12 year old son that the laptop had not been sitting on the shelf since 2007, even though it has likely been on the shelf since before April 15, 2010.

Build quality bad on my machine

Meowzers, Amazon
2 September 2010
  • Summary: I received my AS5820T earlier today and unfortunately I will have to return it. My computer wobbled because the front-left base was not the same height as the front-right side. I played with it all day seeing if I could adjust to it but I decided to return it.

Akkuleistung unzufriedenstellend

Paul K. "paul31450", Amazon
4 August 2011
  • Summary: Ich habe mich für jenes Notebook entschieden , weil er mit so guter Akkuleistung beworben worden ist. Also bei mir war es so , dass wenn überhaupt 5 Std. zu erreichen waren mit einer Akkuladung , dann nur wenn man die Bildschirmhelligkeit ganz nach unten fährt, da leidet aber leider die Bildqualität...
