Reviews for the Acer Aspire TimelineX 4830T-6841
Source: PC Mag Archive.org version
Outstanding performance and a relatively light, durable chassis make the Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4830T-6841 a great choice for a mainstream laptop that won't weigh you down on the road. And, with more than nine hours of battery life, you can put in a full work day without recharging. However, another USB 3.0 port would be nice, as would a few more wireless features. Still, this laptop should be on your short list, along with our current Editors' Choice, the Dell Inspiron 14z, which has a more robust feature set and a removable battery.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
