Acer's Aspire TimelineX AS3830T-6417 continues the companies trend of affordable ultraportable laptops. With street pricing of around $600, it is one of the least expensive 13-inch models on the market. It isn't going to be as thin as the ultrathin laptops but it does offer a solid mix of features to make it a solid primary computer for someone looking at a compact system.
