Review Acer Aspire 3830TG (i7/SSD) Subnotebook

Notebookcheck
17 October 2011
  • 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.

LAPTOP Magazine
24 June 2011
  • 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.

31 May 2011
  • 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...

Critique du Acer Aspire 3830TG (i7/SSD)

Notebookcheck.fr
27 November 2011
  • 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.

19 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Als de Core i5 al last had van een hoge warmteontwikkeling, hoe zal het een Core i7 dan vergaan? Acer is niet bang om risico's te nemen en creëert een (potentieel) mobiel monster met een SSD, krachtige grafische kaart, snelle processor en 8 GB RAM geheugen.
