Acer Aspire 11.6in TimelineX 1830T is a highly portable notebook, which is just a little 'more processing power than a netbook, but with more memory, and under the hood. It is useful for those who want a thin and light notebook and a small road, but not perfect. In particular, the keyboard can be better and the palm rest a bit '.

Specifications and performance

Inside, the laptop with an Intel Core CPU 380UM i3, which is a model ultra-low voltage with a frequency of 1.33 GHz. The rest of the configuration features 2 GB DDR3 SDRAM, integrated Intel graphics card and a HD 5400 rpm, 320 GB hard drive. Its CPU functioned as expected in our test Blender 3D, with the laptop recording 1min 52sec for a while. It is identical to the time recorded as Sony VAIO Y Series(VPCYA15FGB). But the Aspire 1830T was faster in the test iTunes MP3 encoding: 1min 56sec he recorded over 3min 06sec for Sony.
You do not want to use the Aspire 3D graphics tasks, is simply not powerful enough. This was demonstrated in 3DMark06, where he recorded 1,101 brands. Also, if you can use this laptop to convert video files for use in portable media players is not recommended because it ages. Converting a DVD to a file of 1.5 GB Xvid 2h 14min AutoGordianKnot, which is almost identical to that of Sony. It is an hour slower than a regular power Core i3, such as mobile C650 Toshiba Satellite.

In our test battery discharge, which disable power management, enabling Wi-Fi, and screen brightness to optimize the loop Xvid encoded video, the Aspire lasted 2h 24min, which is 50 minutes less than the Sony, but it is an expected result because the Acer uses a smaller battery (4 cells instead of 6 cells) to maintain weight laptop a bit lighter and thinner. However, if you select a plan for energy management and tone with the brightness of the screen, you should be able to get about three hours away.

Design and user comfort

Aspire 1830T TimelineX is slim and lightweight (only 1.37 kg) and is very pretty. The slots of the battery on the back of the laptop between the display hinges, so there is plenty of unused space between the keyboard and screen. He is the only one who could have been done to keep a slim profile of the laptop at its thickest part is only 28mm TimelineX Aspire 1830T. At the other end is the palm rest a bit too small - only 48mm deep - which means that the touchpad is also very low - only 67x36mm.

We are not supporters of the Aspire keyboard, a small bouncy castle and has keys that are too flat and too rigid. We wish the keys were softer when we did a lot of typos by typing this review. The combination of hard buttons and the touchpad is small Aspire 1830T TimelineX a bit awkward to use and it is not pleasant to type on for long - in fact, it can be tiring. That said, there is always a compromise between ease of use and small size in the portable design. Chances are you've probably used this keyboard and touchpad after using it for a few weeks.

Comfort issues aside, the Aspire 11.6in TimelineX 1830T is very mobile and we love the fact that it also comes with an AC wall wart relatively small, rather than a power source. It is very easy to carry in a backpack or small laptop case. Around the edges it has three USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, Gigabit Ethernet ports and microphone and headset. You also get a webcam, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11n. It has no fingerprint reader, which would be useful on a laptop like this, but this is not a major drawback for us.

Conclusion

Overall, we like the Aspire 1830T TimelineX for its small size and excellent mobility, but because of this it is somewhat uncomfortable to use. Its keyboard is not great, and its touchpad is small but with time you will probably get used to it. We think this is the type of laptop you should consider if you plan on getting a netbook, but also something that will allow you more simply surf the Web and create documents.

The Notebook Acer Aspire Timelinex 1830t 68u118 11.6in screen has a resolution of 1366x768 and a glossy finish. It is subject to reflections and a little difficult to use in brightly lit areas unless the brightness is maximized. But overall it is decent reading documents and viewing Web pages. A matte screen will be welcomed on this model.
