and I'm glad I made that decision

Kristi, Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: Bought this laptop about 4 years ago, and it's still holding up alright. I used to buy Dell products, but branched out to something else, and I'm glad I made that decision. It was cheaper than a comparable Dell, and it has lasted longer than previous laptops. The only flaw with the design is the fans are not very powerful, and my laptop has turned off while playing video games from over-heating. I bought a nice laptop fan, though, and it completely fixed the issue.

HAPPY USER

  • Summary: I HAVE BEEN USING MY LAPTOP OVER A YEAR NOW AND I AM VERY HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE. I WATCH MOVIES ON IT ALL THE TIME. IT IS LITTLE ON A HEAVY SIDE SO I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND AS SOMETHING YOU NEED TO CARRY EVERYDAY.

Acer Aspire Timeline X 5830T

Richard Corso, CNET
16 May 2013
  • Summary: I have the i5-2410m 2.3GHz version which is fast. Nice keyboard, display etc. What I don't like is The audio playback sucks - Dolby system is not great, however the worst part is the audio crackle on playback. To play back without constant crackling (nothing to do with the audio levels) is to start on internal battery and then plug in the charge. This seems to reduce the amount of crackling.

Possible Factory Defect

Yanni G., Amazon
24 March 2012
  • Summary: Both my friend and I bought these from the Microsoft Store (one in Arizona one in Virginia) during the 2011 end of the year sale. My motherboard died within 1 month of use. My friends died after 3 months. Neither of us put the machine through any strenuous activities. I am not sure if its a factory defect or if Microsoft did something to mess things up. Good thing is that you get a 1 year Acer warranty that pays for shipping and repair costs (takes about 10 days).

DO NOT BUY THIS COMPUTER HORRIBLE

ACERSTINKS, Amazon
23 March 2012
  • Summary: Bought this computer in November 2011- 70 days later computer will not turn on. Covered by warranty however you must mail computer to Texas to be repaired. Received "repaired" computer back however it still did not work. For the love of GOD do not purchase anything from Acer. Terrible customer service and product. Save yourself time and worry by looking at another manufacturer.

Awesome laptop

Jaded, Amazon
10 February 2012
  • Summary: As I rarely review, the awesome-ness of this laptop inspired me to actually do one. Pros: -Battery life (6 hours give or take) While watching tv shows connected to wifi, word docs opened, and multiple tabs running in firefox. This is a big pro for a college student like me since finding a plug in school is like trying to finding parking in manhattan, virtually impossible unless you wake up extra early and never leave your spot.

Awesome laptop!

Elixir, Amazon

  • Summary: Great price for 15.6' laptop with i5 processor, 6GB memory. Dolby audio. Can't go wrong with this purchase. Runs fast. Compare pricing to Acer Aspire TimelineX AS5830TG-6614 15.6-Inch Aluminum Laptop (Cobalt Blue)

  • Excerpt: Покупкой доволен. При постоянной носке в сумке отлично сохранился, за что огромное спасибо алюминиевому корпусу.
  • Pros: Стильный, не громоздкий, относительно мощный, тихий. Отличная батарея! Прошло 2 года, а все еще хватает на 4-5 часов, что в прочем в 2 раза меньше значения, которое было при покупке.
  • Cons: Раз в пол года надо сбрасывать винду - что-то в ней происходит, зажирается проц и начинается сильный нагрев. После сброса до заводских настроек ноут снова как новый. Долгая загрузка. При запуске скайпа звуковая карта хрепит, по это быстро проходит, но не всегда, звук может пропасть совсем и надо будет делать выход из системы. Полоска вокруг экрана быстро царапается... мелочь, а не приятно.

  • Pros: Важно: тонкий, сравнительно легкий. Эстетически: приятен на ощупь. Неплохо выглядит, при этом подходит как мужчине, так и девушке Игры: достаточно производителен, не подвисал даже на высоком качестве
  • Cons: 1) Через год использования начала сдавать батарея. Через 2 года без провода работает 5 минут и садится. Из-за несъемной батареи заменить самостоятельно нельзя 2) Сильно греется. Нет, не так. ОЧЕНЬ сильно греется.
