decent laptop for the money + great battery life,
This review is from: Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T 15.6 inch Laptop, 8+ Hours Battery, Intel Core 2 Solo ULV SU3500 1.40 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 320 GB HDD DVDSM, Vista Home Premium (Electronics)I have bought hundreads of products online over the past 12 years and this is the first customer review i have written. Why might you ask? Because i fundamentally disagree with the last review and there are no others for this product on amazon to offer a balanced story.
My company bought this product a couple of weeks ago after i fully researched laptops between the £500-£800 mark. I am the director in an ecommerce company with an unhealthy interest in technology hence i know a little about computers.
Overall i rate this product 4/5 as whilst it is definitely underpowered if you use it for power hungry applications such as web design or web build or for gaming it is a great machine if you use it for office products, surfing the web or other relatively power hungry applications.
I have installed an early release of Windows 7 on the machine (64 bit version to utilise the full 4 gb ram) and it works great. The battery life is amazing and for the size the laptop is extremely light. It is good on the environment (due to low power consumption) and has a nice screen.
The build quality is not 10/10 however i would put build quality at the 8/10 mark.
Overall, if in doubt type in the name of the laptop in to google and you will find many reviews from much more informed people than us and they generally rate this product as 4/5. As a result, and based on my own experience, i do the same.

Hear hear - I've got the 4810t (which Amazon doesn't sell - only difference to the 5810t is a 14" screen) and am very happy with it. Basically, if you're after a laptop with the qualities of a netbook (light, decent battery life) but with a bigger screen, you can't go far wrong with Acer's Timelines. I agree that build quality isn't quite Thinkpad 10/10 level, but it ain't that bad either - 8/10 is a fair assessment I think. It's true that some Timelines (including mine) come shipped with a dodgy video driver that regularly results in paralysing CPU spikes (which is something of a gaff considering how much effort Acer have put into marketing the product), but once that's upgraded, you're away. Very cool.
