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.
Pros: Powerful Dolby audio, Attractive premium-looking design, Good overall performance and graphics, Long battery life
Cons: Jumpy cursor when using touchpad, Small touchpad buttons, Reflective display
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?
Pros: Stylish, modern design, New isolation keyboard, Good connectivity, Great multimedia hardware, Low power usage (Idle), High battery life thanks to Nvidia Optimus, Good sound system, The new design fitting the TimelineX style, the new Isolation keyboard, the good battery life, and the low power usage.
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.
