As part of Acer's new Timeline range, the 4810T makes a good initial impression. Slim and clad in sombre grey plastic, it's a surprisingly good-looking machine for the money. But while it looks good while closed, it's a little disappointing to open it up and find the interior is standard Acer fare. The bezel around the screen is dark, matte grey, and the base is an inoffensive gunmetal grey that doesn't provoke the response the system does when it's closed. Nondescript looks and plodding performance are elevated by absolutely stunning battery life

Acer's ultrathin Aspire Timeline draws your eyes in with its sleek looks and a new design. The best part? Good basic features and Acer's low price point strategy can only mean this notebook will be appeal to most consumers. It's likely Acer has a winner on their hands with the Aspire Timeline 4810T. Heck, we won't be surprised if this notebook starts taking consumers by storm (and we'd probably be surprised if it doesn't). Suffice to say we would gladly recommend breaking out your wallets for this sleek notebook.

Ever since Apple's MacBook Air arrived on the scene there's been a pre-occupation with the thinness of laptops. As Apple proved, or dictated, thin and light generally (though not always) translates into under-featured and overpriced. However, as the newfound dominance of the netbook has shown, in these financially-troubled times people simply can't afford to pay as much for the privilege of portability. Cool, quiet, light, slim and understated, the Acer Timeline Aspire 4810T is one impressive machine. It's only possible downfall is its mediocre screen but this is more than made up for by its stunning battery life, feature set, and performance.

Acer says its new series of Timeline laptops offer a battery life up to eight hours. That’s a mighty bold claim so we’re putting the Aspire Timeline 4810T under the microscope to see whether it’s a piece of engineering genius or PR puff. The new Timeline is a perfectly decent laptop that is saved from mediocrity by a battery life that is, for a notebook, absolutely epic.

There isn't much to dislike about the 4810T. The design is somewhat conservative, but in that there is nothing to offend. Light in weight at 1.9kg, this is the sort of notebook that you can easily port around with you. The graphics might not give you the same performance that some dedicated GPU-sporting notebooks will, but then you have that really impressive battery life. A battery span that will let you fly across the Atlantic and use your notebook all the way, or spend the day out of your conference hotel room, and know your PC is going to have you covered. Prices for a basic Timeline models start at £549. We don't have the exact pricing for the options including in our review model, but we'd expect closer to £800. We'll update the pricing when we have full details.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
Power efficient low voltage processor based on the Penryn 3M core that features all Penryn functions like Virtualization and Trusted Execution.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
