Acer aspire timelinex 5830t- Baterias y adaptadores para portatiles
Acer's TimelineX 3830T is a 13.3-inch ultraportable laptop weighing under 2 Kg with a latest generation Core i3 CPU. Designed to accompany you on your travels, Acer claims a ten hour battery life for this machine. Let's see if it really does manage as much...
Watch out, it heats up!
Acer has given this 13-inch a very nice finish, with a mix of aluminium and plastic covering the hood and chassis. The various components are secure with very little play and the shell holds firm when you press down on it.
The keyboard is in the chiclet style with well-proportioned and well-positioned keys giving supple, instinctive, agreeable keying that minimises errors.
The touchpad is however a little on the small size. We would have preferred to see it extend further on either side into the palm rest area so as not to have to move across it several times to get the cursor from one side of the screen to the other. The glide is however pleasant and precise.
Compaq Mini 311cThe webcam (720p) gives decent restitution of movements, however brightness isn't managed as well. The black and dark zones are completely blocked out so you have to make sure the room you're using it in is well lit.
The connectivity is pretty standard for an ultra. On the right you'll find the headphones and mic sockets, two USB 2.0 ports and the Ethernet (RJ45) socket. The power socket, another USB 2.0 port and a USB 3.0 port and the HDMI and VGA outs are on the other side. At the front, there's an SD card reader. For DVDs however you'll have to use an external player as there's none here.
The 3830T is a quiet machine both at idle and in full load. Unfortunately, the heat isn't very well dissipated. The chassis heats up to 40°C underneath and on top some areas get up to 50 °C. This will certainly make you think twice about working with it on your knees.
