Acer Aspire Timeline X 4830T Review
Acer Aspire Timeline X 4830T ReviewThe Acer Aspire Timeline X 4830T packs all the functionality and power of a typical Acer Aspire laptop into a small 14” screen that is perfectly portable.
This pint sized notebook features a powerful Intel Core i3 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and 320 GB of hard drive space. Its battery can last for up to nine hours, as long as you’re not using the 1.3 megapixel camera, the DVD Super Multi DL drive, and the multiple USB ports all at once. It may be small, but the Timeline X 4830T is no wimp.
When it comes to computers, there is always a payoff between power and size. The best computers are often those with the most powerful processors, but those tend to be the largest computers as well. After all, it takes a certain amount of space and a large amount of battery power to run a processor that strong. Netbooks, on the other hand, tend to have fairly limited processing powers. A 14” laptop strikes the perfect balance between size and power. It is large enough to hold a powerful processor, its CPU fan, and its power source, yet small enough to be carried easily from place to place.
All laptops are portable, but the Acer Aspire Timeline X 4830T goes the extra step to offer the ultimate in portability. The 14.0” computer is small enough to fit easily into a small backpack or a large purse, and it weighs a mere 2.2 kg. The 6CELL3.0 battery can last for up to nine hours of typical usage and the USB 3.0 port can double as a charger for many devices, including smartphones. Someone who spends the majority of his/her time carrying the laptop from place to place with find the Aspire Timeline X 4830T to be a comfortable and convenient option.
