Acer Timeline 4810T Ultraportable Laptop

New design, weight of 1.9 kg and range from about 8 h: the Aspire has good arguments on paper. The Aspire 4810T-353G25Mn is part of the new range of small notebooks from Acer called Timeline. In addition to their shells thin and elegant, these machines provide a very comfortable car, 8 pm. The model we tested is equipped with a processor with low power consumption (one heart!), An LED backlight and a battery of six cells. Here’s our verdict on this new machine is intended mainly for offices.

We must recognize that Acer is trying to innovate in marketing this new range of small laptops. In terms of design, first. Indeed, a case of only 3 cm thick lid closed (2.5 cm when open), weighing about 2 kg and a silver finish, the bike attracts the eye. Regarding the quality of assembly, nothing shocking if you see the device on the shelves of a shop. However, when he was seized with one hand by the bottom side bends slightly to the touch because of its subtlety. You can then question the strength of materials and long-term life of the product. A nice keyboard but little thought.

As announced by Acer, innovation is key to this new generation of Aspire, with keys that emerge slightly from the horizontal plane. Again, this particular attracts the eye, but immediately noticed the lack of this device. Indeed, these keys (which have nothing to compare with those that fit the mini-laptops from Apple or Sony), there is empty. Although not every day you decide to eat crackers on his computer keyboard, the gaps allow the accumulation of dirt and contaminants, which can be difficult to remove.

Also, the buttons do not give an impression of solidity. Although there is not going to shoot us think, you know that will not have trouble making the player at the first opportunity. Did not have time to clip the tip of a nail that twist, ready to fall. He exaggerates a bit ‘, but will certainly be very careful to keep the laptop in good running condition clean. Finally, it is better not to be very obsessive about fingerprints. Because of the appearance of glossy black keyboard, which has had no problems to light for fingerprints after handling some of the laptop. Defects more regrettable that the keyboard can also hit a silent thanks to its well-spaced buttons, fast.

For this machine, we would have preferred that the plate is boring. Outside, the glossy panel, presumably with anti-glare becomes a mirror. You have to push up the brightness to distinguish anything. Conversely, if you have installed in the shade or indoors (to avoid turning your back on a window), comfort is in fact an appointment. The definition of 1366 X 768 pixels provides good accuracy and a working area large enough so that you can open a text document or web page on one side and a chat window, type Windows Live Messenger, on the other.

T little laptop is far from a power plant. Even if you have 3 GB of RAM, a processor only heart (Intel Core 2 Solo) 1.4GHz us back to the slowness of the past. Once you press the button to start, you must wait 55 seconds to watch the Windows Vista desktop to load. It takes 2 minutes for this Aspire makes the first order, i.e. open the web browser, and then 1 more minute to allow you to enter an Internet address. In total, we have to wait 4 minutes before surfing. If we realize that all this is very slow, the blow is dealt when confronted with this laptop netbook. In this case, the new Toshiba NB200. Start the second in just 35 seconds and completely available in 1 minute and 30 seconds. Significantly better performance, which must surely operating system, Windows XP, run much faster on these small cars that Windows Vista payload house.

It is understood, is not too much power. However, that is available is sufficient to keep the promises of the manufacturer: run Office applications. Therefore, it is quite possible to work all day with a word processor, while browsing the Internet, check email, etc.. No problem. This little machine is the management of workload and multiple open applications. A strength of the heart is a simple processor that heats very little. Consumption has announced the Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500, low fuel consumption of just 5.5 watts. This is a Core 2 Duo SU9400 half and almost six less than a Core 2 Duo T5270, both at 1.4 GHz.

The impact on the autonomy of the machine is clear. In the office, connected via Wi-Fi with a continuous flow of streaming radio, the Aspire 4810T will be held at 7 pm in economy mode. In this mode, the backlight panel provides good legibility for internal use. During DVD playback, we had a nice surprise to see the six-cell battery last for 4 hours and 15 minutes. A sticker on the laptop suggests the presence of a multi-touchpad. Thanks to him, it can zoom and move across a page, acting differently with your thumb and forefinger together. In the implementation, we are only able to use the zoom function. Yet it seems very sensitive to all applications. The advantage of this gadget is small and far away from the shadow of the devices on the latest MacBook (Read the test of 13 inch MacBook Pro).

Conclusion :

Finally on the sides, the deal is largely correct. The connector consists of three well-placed USB ports on both sides of the machine. A VGA port and HDMI output are present, as a memory card reader, although it is fairly minimal (SD, SDHC, MMS and MMS Pro). There are also above the keyboard, a field sensor to activate the Wi-Fi (802.11n), the backup feature (Acer Backup Manager) or function Acer PowerSmart Manager (for managing the settings mode, d lighting, etc.).  The balance is not so good for this little Acer laptop. Timeline 4810T-352G25MN Aspire is a very powerful solution, but with good battery life, small size and the price could attract mobile users. Right now, a few points that we have offended, as the overall strength of the product or keyboard buttons to shiny black raised and strangely fragile, to name a few.
