The latest model of Acer's small business laptop is a good looking machine, with much of the power you need - and at a very reasonable price for its specification. We liked its looks, and were surprised to find just how light it was. The integrated battery could be an issue, but with more than five hours of battery life, it's not something that should be much of a problem.

The Timeline X 5830T model certainly gets off to a good start with its sleek appearance enhanced by a blue, black and silver colour scheme plus a top that has a downward slope at the rear along with circular hinges. The Timeline X is a smart looking laptop that performs reasonably well.

A mostly solid-feeling body and great battery life make this 15.6in laptop a good choice if you're going to spend a lot of time working between your desk and elsewhere. It doesn't perform well with games thanks to its lowly integrated graphics, but the comfortable keyboard layout and capable Sandy Bridge processor make it a competitive - if not particularly exciting - productivity solution.

Acer have made a conscious effort to inject a little more style, improved performance and energy efficiency in its revamped Aspire TimelineX series and its top of the range 5830T is a cool looking workhorse that holds its own in a crowded market place.

A capable laptop - but it does little to stand out.

This is a decent system from Acer. It compromises on computational welly, but offers more than enough memory to keep things running smoothly. The only people who won’t be wholly enamoured with it are likely to be serious power users - it’s not particularly well-suited to Photoshop or big rendering jobs - and gamers. If you simply want a machine for everyday work or studies, this will fill the role without carving a rut out of your wallet. Look online and you'll pay £100 less than the RRP.

The Acer Aspire Timeline X doesn't have the sort of power that will tear through the latest games titles, but it manages to give a strong performance, especially for multi-tasking, which will certainly appeal to the more casual user. Its blue aluminium shell makes it both sturdy and more attractive than the usual grey or black laptops found in this price range too.
