I bought this laptop last August and it has served me well with almost constant use. The 13.3" screen is a good portable size and is suitable to use for transportation. It is very lightweight and less than 1" thick which makes it easy to caryy around all day.
The best feature of this laptop is the battery life which has an incredible 8 hours + battery life however this varies for every recharge and will sometimes last 9 hours while at others it is only 5. There is also a touch button under the screen which works as a power saver button, decreasing the amount of power being used.
The laptop comes with a built in webcam which is compatible with programs such a msn and the laptop itself comes with a program specifically for the webcam which also allows for pictures to be taken and saved to the harddrive.
The harddrive itself has a brilliant 320GB capacity and the operating system takes up very little space of this, leaving the vast majority for personal use.
Overall, this is a brilliant laptop and the acer timeline series is well worth considering when buying a new laptop
More than 8 hours battery life, ultra-light weight and sophisticated design, all at the right price. This is the Aspire Timeline. With the Aspire Timeline series, Acer has taken a big, if not the biggest step forward in the concept of mobility, an area where finding the perfect equilibrium between light weight and autonomy has always been the number one priority. The Aspire Timeline series was conceived around the duration of the battery and introduces a way to render the system lighter, more efficient and less harmful to the environment. From now on you can turn on your Aspire Timeline in the morning and turn it off in the evening without ever having to charge it! Light as your time can be!
