Acer 3830TG review – the new generation 13.3 incher
29 March 2012
Conclusion: The Acer 3830TG is a decently built machine, that learned from the mistakes of its predecessor (at least when it comes to the keyboard) and also added some very decent hardware. Also, it has a good video card that allows for some smooth gaming and HD playback, all this in a package that’s not very...
Summary: Throttling reloaded. If the Core i5 already moaned as a consequence of heat issues, what will a Core i7 do? Acer isn't afraid of taking risks and sets up a (potential) dream of mobility with an SSD, strong graphics and a swift processor and 8 GB of RAM.
Pros: Adequate scope of interfaces, Generous keyboard, Fan partly inactive in idle, Very good battery life, Low power consumption operation, Very good gaming performance in 13.3 inches, The low power consumption in idle and the good battery life. The case's slim looks are appealing.
Cons: CPU throttling down to 1.2 GHz, Port positioning, High-gloss screen, Poor display rates, Permanently built-in 6 cell battery, A stable base unit would significantly enhance the outer impression. Core i7 performance without throttling would be a real argument for buying this 13.3 inch laptop.
Summary: As a conclusion of this review, the latest Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3830TG-6431 will make a good choice if you want a new laptop. Its nice specifications, elegant design, great speed, battery life and price make the laptop competitive.
Summary: For its $779 price, the Acer Aspire TimelineX 3830TG-6431 provides a lot of power in a very compact package. Its two-tone blue-and-silver design is attractive, and Nvidia's Optimus technology lets users play the latest games and get nearly 7 hours of battery life.
Summary: Small Flaw, Big Effect. Acer has come out the with the new generation of Aspire TimelineX notebooks and the series wouldn't be complete without a 13.3" subnotebook. Speedy hardware, a classy design and a long battery life all sound pretty good.
Pros: Snazzy Ice-Blue Design, Decent Variety of Ports, Generous Chiclet Keyboard, Fans Usually Silent in Idle Mode, Adequate Battery Life, Low Power Consumption in Idle Mode, The attractive and compact design, the decent battery life and the good variety of ports.
Cons: CPU gets Throttled Quickly, Even during Everyday Use (Gaming), Placement of Ports, High-Gloss Screen, Mediocre Display, Hot under Heavy Use, Poor-Quality Speakers, Non-Removable Battery, A quick and easy fix to the CPU throttling issue that at times lowers the laptop's performance to below that o...
Summary: Acer Aspire 3830TG to laptop o charakterystykach podobnych do dwóch większych notebooków z rodziny TimelineX. Klawiatura, gładzik i kolorystyka obudowy są fajne, ale solidność korpusu wypadła kiepsko.
Excerpt: Décélération maximum?. On pensait que les problèmes de surchauffe/baisse des performances des Core 5 et i7 dans certains contextes étaient terminés, mais ce n'est toujours pas le cas. Acer offre du rêve (potentiel) avec son SSD, sa puissante carte graphique un processeur puissant et 8 Go de RAM.
