Reviews for the Acer Aspire 4820TG-6847

Performance with the Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4820TG-6847 was very impressive as it beat out most of the other laptops in this same category in testing. The system had no problem playing steaming video from the Internet, playing DVD movies, video encoding and doing the average computing tasks. Gamers will be happy to know that this laptop, thanks to the AMD Radeon discrete graphics, can play today's 3D games without much trouble. You might have to dial down some graphics settings just slightly, but in most games, it works good at the default settings.

For consumers looking for power and portability--plus a DVD drive--the Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4820TG is a very good choice. For $799 ($729 on Amazon), you get Core i5 speed and AMD graphics muscle, impressive Dolby sound, and more than 5 hours of battery life. While we wish this notebook offered stronger Wi-Fi performance, it outperforms the 14-inch competition in most tests. The ASUS U41Jc ($815) lasts longer on a charge and has better gaming chops, and the Samsung QX410 ($799) is sleeker, but both of those laptops cost at least $70 more. So if you want a lot of oomph on the go for an aggressive price, get the TimelineX AS4820TG.

AMD Radeon HD 6550M: Renamed Mobility Radeon HD 5650.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.
