Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4820TG-6847


$799.99 Released December, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Pretty fairly priced for the specs. Features HDMI and VGA video outputs for compatibility with older and newer displays. Understated, elegant design looks great.

The Cons:1st generation i5 processor isn't as efficient or powerful as 2nd gen options. Keyboard doesn't provide the best tactile response, features a bit of flex. Display quality isn't up to par with competing laptops - colours looked washed out.

The Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4820TG-6847 is a mid-range to high-end notebook laptop with a 14" LED-backlit display. It sports an Intel Core i5-480M processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 8GB), a 640GB hard drive and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6550 discrete graphics processor.

Additionally, the TimelineX AS4820TG-6847 sports HDMI and VGA video output as well as a 5-in-1 media card reader.

The TimelineX AS4820TG-6847's Intel Core i5-480M processor allows it to easily handle day-to-day use with little to no slowdown while offering moderate multitasking capabilities.
