Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T-354G32Mn - Battery Performance

Ardjuna Seghers

By Ardjuna Seghers



Our Score:


Battery life is in line with the Dual Core 4810T-353, but doesn't hold up quite so well against its 14in sibling sporting the same Core 2 Solo processor.

Nevertheless, well over six hours is an incredibly strong result, and the screen is perfectly usable at its minimum brightness rather than the 40 per cent setting used here.

Will you review the 3810T? That's my max form factor.

Having recently been in the market for a smart but inexpensive laptop, the Timeline series really caught my eye. My impressions were mainly positive, but I eventually decided against all three because they all struggle with Vista in 'normal' spec, and:

3810T - lacked internal optical drive, which I think is a problem

4810T - the best of the range, but I wanted a 13" form factor

5810T - why bother getting this over the 4810T? For the number pad??

In case anyone cares, I went for an HP DV3, which matches 13" form factor with good spec, good value & an internal optical drive. It lacks the battery life of the Timeline series, however which is a real fillip of this range.

Page 1: Surely you mean "Were it not for this keyboard and the NON reflective screen". Otherwise how does it make sense to not require the care of a glossy screen? Am I missing something?

No, the screen IS reflective. Hence about the screen on Page 2: "Once you get past the reflections which mar the experience in bright ambient lighting".

Maybe you're getting confused with the matte screen-bezel? Unless I'm missing something :)

What a load of rubbish. Broadband connection keeps dropping, programs take ages to respond. Wish I hadn't bothered
