The Aspire Timeline 4810T-353G32Mn is the newest addition to Acer’s notebook arsenal and is designed to provide long battery life as well as cool and comfortable usage.

On the battery life front the machine proved itself a star; using the Acer PowerSmart Manager the notebook remained alive and kicking for slightly over six hours. This performance makes the Acer one of the most resilient notebooks we’ve ever tested and is especially stunning when you consider it also outperforms more than a few ultra-portables. And, in terms of portability, the Acer is easy to lug around thanks to its petite dimensions and 1.9kg weight.

In the looks and design department the Timeline scores well thanks to its handsome design and classy colour scheme. The machine’s keyboard offers reasonably large keys so regardless of your hand and finger size, using it for long periods of time won’t prove tiring or troublesome. The trackpad complements this offering responsive performance and good feel though we have to say this trackpad doesn’t feel as good under our fingers as the Lenovo T400s (also reviewed on ITP.net) pad.

Performance was the only area in which the 4810T struggled to impress and this was largely due to a lack of processing firepower. The machine relies on a Core 2 Solo 1.4GHz (single core) processor and while this will run most applications on the market, it won’t win any races. This fact shone through when we ran our PCMark Vantage benchmark as the Aspire scored a rather basic score of 1602 in the overall PCMark Suite test. The T400s by comparison managed a far higher figure of 5248.

Verdict

A highly portable notebook that’s great to work with over long periods of time. It’s only held back by a lack of processing power.
