Conclusions

The Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3830T-6417 is a very good laptop for the average user who wants a fast portable with the latest technologies. We found it a little bit heavy for an “ultra thin” model, but users who are used to carrying a brick in their backpacks will certainly think the weight of this new model is fair. Battery life is certainly one of the highlights of the product.

Weak Points
