LaptopMag has reviewed the new Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG-6847. The laptop features a second-generation Intel Core i5 CPU and an AMD Radeon HD graphics. The Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG-6847 features a 2.66GHz Intel Core i5-480M CPU, the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, a 4GB RAM (upgradeable up to 8GB), a 640GB hard disk drive and a 14-inch (1366 x 768) LCD display. Here is the verdict:
For consumers looking for power and portability–plus a DVD drive–the Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4820TG is a very good choice. For $799 ($729 on Amazon), you get Core i5 speed and AMD graphics muscle, impressive Dolby sound, and more than 5 hours of battery life. While we wish this notebook offered stronger Wi-Fi performance, it outperforms the 14-inch competition in most tests. The ASUS U41Jc ($815) lasts longer on a charge and has better gaming chops, and the Samsung QX410 ($799) is sleeker, but both of those laptops cost at least $70 more. So if you want a lot of oomph on the go for an aggressive price, get the TimelineX AS4820TG.
The Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG-6847 is priced at $799. [LaptopMag]
