Reviews for the Acer Aspire 1830T-3721

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T Review
Source: Slashgear English
Acer’s TimelineX series – itself a development of the Timeline range – is reasonably mature now, and the design language has evolved into a slick, handsome line-up of variously sized notebooks. The TimelineX AS1830T-68U118 is the smallest on offer, at 11.6-inches, and is a roughly 1-inch thick slice of black brushed aluminum. It’s lightweight, too, at 3.1-pounds, and feels sturdy and well-built.

Acer's TimelineX 1830T may look very similar to their Aspire One 721 netbook but it offers a much greater experience and at very affordable prices for an ultraportable. Performance is strong thanks to the new Core 2010 ultra-low voltage processor. It is certainly a very capable ultraportable but it does have a few downsides including a less then optimal webcam and a trackpad that can be extremely difficult.

An affordable ultraportable that's long on workaday performance but iffy on input ergonomics.

It's easy to mistake the Acer Aspire 1830T-3721 for a netbook, as the 11.6-inch widescreen and 3-pound frame are features of one. However, beyond its looks lies one of Intel's newest CULV processors, which is fast enough to please any performance enthusiast, while battery efficient enough to last through a multi-legged flight. If you need a bigger screen, better battery life, and a sleeker frame, the Asus UL80VT-A1 is the better pick and even more formidable when it upgrades to the new Core processors.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
