82% Review Acer Aspire 3830TG Subnotebook | Notebookcheck
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. But how does the CPU throttling issue affect this compact laptop's actual performance?

Comment

Series:

With the Aspire TimelineX series Acer have slim consumer notebooks in shelf. Depending on your needs Acer offer the notebooks with 15.6, 14 or 13.3-inch screen. The last one is found in the 3830TG, which target different user groups. The display have a resolution of the usual 1366 x 768 pixels in 16:9 format. The majority of written reviews criticize the measured values and the glossy screen surface. In terms of hardware Acer sell the 3830TG with Intel's mainstream CPU Core i5-2410M or and Intel Core i7-2620M Quad-Core plus a Solid State Drive (SSD). Furthermore a Nvidia GeForce GT 540M graphics card with DDR3-RAM boosts the system up.

Advantages are the available ports, an outstanding battery lifetime and a low idle power consumption. Disadvantages which are found in many reviews are of integrated six cell battery, the load temperatures, the bad speaker-system and quick CPU throttling in everyday life. These points attract each other with slight variations by all units of the new Aspire TimelineX series. Finally the last point is probably the most serious minus on the 3830TG.

Basically the Acer Aspire TimelineX 3830TG is a very attractive package that is available from € 699 in Germany. It combines performance and mobility, but the hardware throttling is a minus that Acer still couldn’t or wouldn't fix till today?

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:

Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.89 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


82.67%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
