Most of us do work while on the move, and in such situations an ultra light laptop with good battery output is what we require the most. The Acer Aspire Timeline series 1830T-3721 is one the ultra portable laptops with a whooping 6 hour battery life and under thousand dollar range, is one the hot favorites for those who normally work out of office.

85% Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T

The Acer TimelineX 1830T is our top pick among subnotebooks. It doesn't compromise power or battery life and it has a good set of ports that outnumber the competition. We're impressed with the specs on the 1830T, and they beat out the competition in features vs. price. It significantly outperforms Acer's own Ferrari One, has a faster CPU and more features than Lenovo's IdeaPad U160, a faster CPU and more ports than the MacBook Air (though it lacks the Air's dedicated graphics), and more horsepower and longer battery life than the Lenovo IdeaPad U260. Bluetooth 3.0 is standard, the laptop has HDMI and a classy looking chassis with good build quality. Geeks and tinkerers will appreciate the easy access to internals for hard drive swaps and wireless upgrades. If you're looking for a 3 lb. notebook that fits in the smallest of spaces and don't intend to do serious 3D gaming with current titles, the Acer should measure up.

80% Acer Aspire AS1830T-68U118

The 11-inch laptop space got a little more interesting when the Apple MacBook Air (11-inch) ($1,199 direct, 3.5 stars) made its entrance, but that doesn't make it the best Consumer Ultra Low Voltage (CULV) laptop for your money. Though it isn't nearly as beautifully designed or as wafer-thin as the MacBook Air, the Acer Aspire AS1830T-68U118 ($900 street) is one of the most powerful laptops in the CULV category. The processor has since been updated to a 1.46GHz Intel Core i7-680um, yet the battery lasted well into the 8 hour range. It's a lot pricier than a netbook, but convincingly cheaper than the MacBook Air.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


680UM:

The Core i7-680UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops. Using Turbo Boost it can be clocked with up to 2.5 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.

1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
