Read the full Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T-354G32Mn review

Acer once again shows off the potential of Intel's CULV processors with its conservative-looking Aspire Timeline 5810T-354G32Mn. Some of the best battery-life we've seen on a 15.6in laptop joins superb build quality, intelligent design and good ergonomics to form a generally well-specified laptop that is only held back in intensive usage and HD entertainment by its single-core Core 2 Solo CPU. It's still a decent laptop, but if true portability is what you're after, you're better off with the 14in or 13.3in models in the Timeline range.

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?

@DMG:


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
