Acer TimelineX Review

Acer TimelineX AS5820T-6401 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black Brushed Aluminum)

I was amazed as soon as I took Acer TimelineX out of the box.

Acer TimelineX¬† is a very beatiful laptop at really great price. (Sold at$529.99) I was surprised because it is thinner than expected, way thinner than my macbook 13″.

It has a solid build quality, the screen is big 15.6 inch, and it is bright and vivid.

The Acer AS5820T

I was able to watch Netflix and Hulu videos, including YouTube HD quality videos without any issues, the picture quality is just perfect.

One of the reason why I bought this laptop was because of the i5 core processor. And it does not disappoint me at all thus far.

I play high settings games and doing multitasking, I had no problem at all. I had my Firefox browser on, GIMP application open, as well as music playing in the background, it did not lag.

However I need to say, this is not a laptop for heavy graphic games, so it would be a letdown if you expect a gaming laptop, though it plays light graphic games and HD videos perfectly.

This Acer TimelineX comes with 640GB which should be a plenty of space for a laptop users. Although the Operating system took about 40GB of the hard drive space, it is still more than enough for me.

Another reason why I purchased this Acer TimelineX  was because of its thin design with brushed aluminium brushed profile, as well as the battery life which is described to have 8 hours battery life.

Which a bit disappointing because it actually did not reach that 8 hours, but only about 4 hours, I even had it on Power save mode.

Overall, Acer Aspire TimelineX AS5820T-6401 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black Brushed Aluminum) is a really great deal at $529.99 and it has i5, great Hard Drive capacity, and solid built. Some laptops are sold at this price, but they offer i3.

    Hi Kimi,

    I paid $520 for my Acer Aspire 1810TZ. It is a 12 inch Netbook. Far less powerful than the Timeline X with i5 processor. I bought it last June. After reading your review, I believe I should have bough the TimelineX, which is laptop, not a Notebook.

    I am impressed it is thinner that the macbook 13”.

    Nice review Kimi.
