TimelineX AS5830TG-6402 Overview
To be honest, I thought TimelineX AS5830TG-6402 is a laptop without build quality, but actually after using this laptop for about a week, this machine has been great, and it has several if best specs for the price and form factor.
Appearance wise, this Acer AS5830TG comes with silver + blue color combination, it looks nice, sleek and absolutely stylish.
I also believe it is a personal preference but I do really like the appearance since the finish isn’t fingerprint magnet.
You will find glossy finish around the laptop’s screen.
The chicklet keyboard is one of the best features, it is a chicklet keyboard, responsive, and very easy to use, makes typing on this laptop is a joy.
The only small annoyance is the “Enter” key which has a strange shape on this Acer Aspire TimelineX AS5830TG-6402.
I find it a bit odd because apart of weird shape, the placement is also almost combined with the “forward slash” key, although I don’t find any difficulties to type with this odd Enter button.
This Acer Aspire TimelineX AS5830TG-6402 comes with 15.6″ bright screen, and includes USB 3.0 which is very handy if you want to transfer files.
The HDMI port and bluetooth are also included, which is very nice.
For $699.99 you get a 15.6 inch amazing laptop, and if you are qualified, you will get Xbox for a bonus, an i5 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M graphics, 6GB of RAM, and also 640GB Hard drive.
The sandy bridge processor makes this thin laptop performs well even when I transcode big video file (I often do that) and the video card is surprisingly great.
I thought it would be just ok, but I have been able to play Mass Effect 2, FEAR 2 on high and medium settings without any problems, I can play games while running other programs I am very pleased with it.
i can run multiple extensive programs at once with no visible slowdown.
The battery life is better than my older laptop, it lasts 6-7 hours when I use the brightness medium setting while browsing via wifi, and while I was gaming, it only last about 3-4 hours.
The speaker has surprisingly great quality. I owned many laptops before, and I really wish their speakers can be twice as loud.
But with this Acer Aspire TimelineX AS5830TG-6402, the speaker is loud, and the audio quality is actually really great for a laptop.
