5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect laptop - light, good looks and performs well!, 1 Feb 2012
This review is from: Acer Aspire Timeline X 4830T 14 inch Laptop - Aluminium (Intel Core i3-2350M 2.3GHZ, RAM 3GB, HDD 500GB, DVD-Super Multi DL, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) (Personal Computers)
I've used many business and personal laptops over the past few years, but having now owned my new Timleline X 4830T for the best part of two days I can safely say it beats them all hands down! This is the new 2012 version of the 4830T with the brand new i3-2350M processor, which is is faster than the previous i3 versions and perfect for all uses other than advanced movie editing and extreme gaming.

I was orginally looking to buy a 15.6" laptop, and was keen on the Acer 5750 (awesome spec from a respected manufacturer). Until I saw the Timeline X. There is no real comparison, other than the price. I was converted. The Timeline X is light, with a very attractive blue aluminium case and, importantly, has a 14" screen, making it properly 'laptop' size. It seems to perfectly bridge the gap between the notebooks and ultra books, but for a very good price.

The inclusion of a DVD drive was important for me so I can use it as a proper replacement for my desktop without the size and weight of a 15.6" monster (I didn't find any svelt versions of these, although the Timeline X 5830T might suffice if you really need a number pad and *wider* screen).

I highly recommend this new version of the 4830T. And I think it's only available on Amazon at the moment (others are selling the models with the slower i3-2330 and 2130 processors). Buy and you won't be disappointed, other than trying to get your friends and family off it so you you can enjoy it too!

the 4830T is 14 inch and does have a CD tray (rare for a laptop of this size!).

Hi, I'd like to know whether you purchased this laptop from Amazon or another supplier. This particular model seems to be EXTREMELY popular; I noticed it initally on Amazon for around 400. But now prices seem to be near 600! Be grateful if you know any cheap places to buy this model of laptop. Thanks in advance.

I bought this from Amazon as it was the cheapest at the time. PC world and John lewis did sell both these and the 15.6" version. Worth searching for the model number on google. Hope this helps! model number is LX.RGP02.114 - just seen it at Sainsburys for 499!
