Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830TG
9 August 2011
Summary: Acer’s Aspire TimelineX 5830TG is priced at Rs. 42,229. The only drawback of worthy mention was the build quality. It comes with all the features you’d require in your notebook – good looks, performance and more so, at an interesting price. As compared to the Inspiron 15R , this one definitely packs more of a punch.
Summary: From its strong performance to its robust audio, the Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830TG is a great multimedia laptop that won't break the bank. We just wish this $799 notebook had a better touchpad and larger touchpad buttons. We slightly prefer the HP Pavilion dv6t, which costs $30 less, offers better graphics performance, and has a fingerprint reader. However, if you're looking for speed and powerful audio in a stylish package, the 5830T is well worth the money.
Summary: The Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830TG comes at a very affordable price of Rs. 40,990. We call it affordable as it has a good Sandy Bridge processor, its aesthetics are brilliant for the price and it performs well in most tests as compared to the other entry level Sandy Bridge laptop we tested this month. Although it may seem a bit on the higher side for students, we would still recommend it to those who are looking at purchasing a new affordable laptop.
Pros: NVIDIA Optimus technology, USB Power off charging, Affordably priced
Cons: Monitor has poor viewing angles, Video encoding is slow
Summary: Summer Breeze. The Acer Aspire TimelineX series is getting new hardware and a fresh new look. The 5830TG laptop, with a 15.6 inch display, is the spearhead of the new lineup. Thanks to its Nvidia GeForce GT 540M graphics chip, the laptop can also satisfy gamers. Does this mean that Acer has learnt from its mistakes and is ushering in a generation of new, improved notebooks?

Cons: Case sturdiness is poor in a few places, Positioning of the ports, Glossy 15.6 inch display, Average display values, CPU throttling also runs during the day (gaming), Securely integrated 6 cell battery, A slimmer Windows installation, better sturdiness in the area of the keyboard and even the display deserves better brightness/contrast.
Summary: Though its styling may divide a little, the Acer Timeline X is a good machine for the average user, performing daily tasks with ease and even facilitating some gaming for a far from princely sum.
Conclusion: The latest model of Acer's small business laptop is a good looking machine, with much of the power you need - and at a very reasonable price for its specification. We liked its looks, and were surprised to find just how light it was. The integrated battery could be an issue, but with more than five hours of battery life, it's not something that should be much of a problem.
Pros: Good looking blue laptop, plenty of memory, good battery life
Cons: Too much bundled software, sealed battery, small touchpad, no discrete graphics

Add to the fact that this laptop comes at an attractive price, makes it stand out all the more from the rest of the laptop crowd.
