When I first got my Acer Aspire TimelineX 3820TZ-P613G32nks, I was over the moon. Previously I was using an ancient Toshiba 'satellite' that practically exploded when I installed windows XP. I was particularly impressed with the card reading facilities, as you can use an SD Memory Card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, MultiMediaCard, xD-Picture Card.
I also was overjoyed with the recording facilities available and the 'Acer Arcade Deluxe' media software. One of the initial key attractions of buying this particular product was the eight hour battery life, however I found the actually battery life of the laptop to be pretty disappointing, as although it did say that the length of the battery life is dependent on what functions you perform on the computer, mine often only lasts five hours (that's for someone who only uses it to word process, listen to music and watch films)
Also, I found the 'Dolby Digital Home Theatre - Virtual Surround Sound' disappointing from the outset. Spotify continually is unable to play tracks, and I often have the same trouble with YouTube and even iTunes. Even after re-configuring the speakers, although I actually can hear sound more often, the quality is very poor.
I also found that the keys tend to fall off very easily and the laptop overheats very quickly too.
However, the 320GB hard drive has proved to be more than enough to store all the files I need, and the webcam is probably the best quality one I've ever used. I also like how easy using the mouse pad to navigate WebPages, particularly when zooming in/out and prefer it, both to my own previous computers, and my friends.
Well , I was on a holiday in UK and had planned to buy a budget laptop that would cost me something between 300 to 400 Pounds and I set out for the local electronic store and most of the laptops with this price tag were bulky, heavy and I didn't find them comfortable to work upon. I consulted the salesman and he recommended the Acer Aspire Timeline X3820TZ and this is what I ended up buying because it was light-weight , cheap and easy to carry and work upon.
The part which I found the most appealing was the price at which I got it for, I just had to spare 350 GBP for it and found it an awesome deal. Although the display screen size is 13.3-inches , the laptop weighs a mere 1.9kg.
Having a look at the Technical Specs of the Aspire Timeline X3820TZ , I found that it features a dual-core 2.00GHz Intel Pentium processor, which simply meant that it would serve a great lot purposes apart from the usual Web Browsing.
Alas, what I don't like about the Acer laptop is that there's no optical drive supplied, so I miss watching movies on DVD.
As far as the RAM is concerned it features 3GB of memory, which is not only enough for daily routine tasks , but also proves to be a charm when working out with programs which demand high resources.
It has got a 320 GB hard drive and I find it more than enough , as it is able to store my whole video games and music collection.
The Best Part of the laptop is the impressive performance and the long battery life, the laptop runs a whooping nine hours when its fully charged, it does last a whole day at my workplace and home.
At such a impressive price and quality, the Acer TimeLine would be the best laptop in it's class. If you need speed, portability and something that won't burn a hole in your pockets, then it is highly recommended to go for it.
Building on the achievements of the previous generation of Timeline laptops, Acer created the Aspire TimelineX series in the pursuit of the extreme: extreme performance, extreme battery life, extreme connectivity and extremely thin designs. With Aspire TimelineX series there is no need of making compromises: you can have it all.
