Acer Aspire Timeline 3410T Laptop - RAM - 3 GB - 250 GB 5400rpm - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit - Intel Celeron 723 - 1.2 GHz £299.97
http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/imageupload/showimage.aspx?id=111730&width=500&height=500
We very rarely get an offer like this, we`ve partnered Acer and together we have brought the best offer we have EVER had!!!! This light weight Laptop is offered to you for an amazing price. However, just because it is small and portable, doesn’t mean features have been missed out.



Let’s start with what the laptop has been developed for, portability. The Acer Timeline series has been developed from the ground up to be a lightweight and portable laptop. Weighing just 1.6kgs you can hold it with just 2 fingers and put in a carry case you wouldn’t even know it was in there. In fact some Netbooks would need to crash diet next to this, especially when you close it and realise it’s less than 1” thick!



Multi-Gesture touch pad – Put simply it you can control web pages and manipulate photos just like you are using an iPhone! A little clever point is that it has a touch pad lock button so you won’t be annoyed while you type!



Multicard reader – This is still not a standard feature on Laptops, so worth a mention. It takes all your usual standard card formats.



3GB/250GB – Well over the average Ram and storage for a normal Laptop, but remember this is double what you would usually find for the money!



Battery – 6 hours usage! Battery life can be very subjective and quote are often misleading, but as I type this, it is saying 35% left giving 2hours 20 mins. So 6 hours seems to be about right, that is all day computing (with an hour for lunch!)



Screen 13.3” – The screen is a High Definition LED giving a resolution of 1366 x 768, meaning you can link it to your HD TV and to make it easy you also have an HDMI socket, not one laptop has this feature for this price.



What else can we say about it, well it has a floating full size keyboard, making it very easy to type, unique cooling technology so no red knees, oh and Windows 7 home premium edition, again never before seen on a laptop of this price.



* Screen size - 13.3 in - 1366 x 768 HD Acer CineCrystal LED LCD
* Processor - Intel Celeron 723 - 1.2 GHz
* RAM - 3 GB (2GB + 1GB)
* Hard Drive - 250 GB 5400rpm
* Operating System - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
* Optical Drive - None
* Graphics - Intel GMA 4500MHD
* Webcam - Acer Crystal Eye Webcam
* Battery Life - 6 Hours

I've got the slightly bigger 4810T (wanted the 3810, but got a cracking deal on the 4810) - same processor etc. and it's brilliant. Get 5-9 hours out of the battery depending on what I do; but 5hours of Visual Studio builds etc is very impressive.

I'd like to upgrade it to SSD and 8gig, but unfortunately I'm not made of money :-)

The clock speed is slower than the original one posted but the processor is also Dual Core rather Core 2 Duo. I'm not the silicon chip equivalent of a petrol head, but thought it was worth pointing out since in most benchmarking articles the Core 2 Duo generally outperforms its Dual Core equivalent. However, if you want to save a few extra quid and the edge of the performance envelope isn't an issue for you, Agharta is spot-on.

I've seen this discussed on UKHD fairly regularly but for those who are weighing up options and want the 30 second comparison, this is one of many sites that can offer you a quick heads-up:

The differences for desktop chips is larger but for these CULV CPUs it’s negligible; in this case you get an extra 100MHz and 1MB of cache which is not a big deal. The addition of Bluetooth seems more significant in some ways as having internal Bluetooth can be handy on a small laptop which might well only have 3 USB ports.

#25
Was also thinking of getting one these. Already have the 4810t, similar spec but with only 3GB RAM, in our household and it's a great; excellent battery life and does everything you'd need (apart from games). Even though it's got integrated graphics, the CPU can handle 1080p video playback (Youtube etc) and can output to a HDTV fine. The Timeline X models might be higher specced (with Core i3 upwards) but they start at at least £200 more....

And if you're worried about the lack of DVD drive, you can get an Samsung external slimline DVD writer for less that £30 on Ebuyer.

For those interested in 2% QUIDCO cashback on top, an alternative to the 'UCAS2' £100 Discount is 'AW3810T'. 'UCAS2' may work with Quidco but 'AW3810T' is Quidco's £100 discount code for the same deal.

I don't actually understand what you're trying to say - but there's almost no difference between a Celeron M 723 chip and a Pentium SU2700.

It's better than the Celeron, yes, seeing as the Celeron is neither Dual Core nor Hyper-Threading enabled. It's unlikely to be massively quicker than the SU2700 however, there's very little difference between the two CPUs.

The additional 1MB of L2 Cache on the SU9400 makes it significantly faster. In the majority of benchmarks I'm looking at the SU9400 is twice as fast...

I'm also pretty sure the Core 2 architecture didn't have hyper-threading, only the new Core i3/i5/i7 and the previous Pentium 4s... Although I might be wrong...


Fair enough, that is quite a difference. The CPUbenchmark site didn't quite support that, which I must admit did seem a bit odd.

My comments re: HTT were to do with the Celeron.

The extra cache is a complete irrelevance except for a very few applications that benefit from it. The extra 100MHz clock speed will give you about an 8% gain at most which is certainly more significant.
You may find synthetic benchmarks that benefit more for the extra cache but who cares.

ACER is cheap for what you get at the point of purchase. But I'll never go with ACER again after having a laptop, a broadband router and a PDA/SatNav. All of them are now broken anyway, well the PDA was my own fault as a few heavy books in my bag cracked the display recently!

But the ACER after sales service has to be the worst. The repair service is also terrible, kept sending my laptop back several times over months saying they fixed the power problem, only to be sent back a few days later each time with the same problem. At one point it was sent to the wrong address after repairs and took a long time to get it back. The guy at ACER was rude on the phone, when I rang to ask what happened, so unbelieably abrupt arguing at me, and at one point he said that I had purposely given them the wrong postcode as they will never get it wrong! Why would I not want my own laptop back? The laptop kept going back and forth till the warranty ran out and then they said "it's not under warranty anymore"! How convenient.

Also some component in this Acer Aspire laptop (I think it was a memory module) had become loose once, and severely overheated when it was resting on a sofa, melting the laptop's plastic case out, and burning a hole in my sofa and the laptop case!! - Fire risk - they ignored this when I mentioned it.

When my Acer PDA's stylus broke with hardly any use, they said that it is not under warranty according to serial numbers in their database, despite me having the receipt from argos. In the end I had to speak to a couple of managers, write in, send the receipt etc, when eventually they accepted it's under warranty.

My Acer BB router, took me literaly a whole day to set up as the manuel was so poor, it looked like somebody in China translated it word to word from Chinese to English looking at a dictionary. Rang customer service, they had no clue how to advice me. Recently it gave up the ghost, and I was so relieved to be rid of the last remnent of the ACER curse.

The money you save buying ACER is not worth the hassle, if (more like when) something goes wrong. I won't go for Acer even if it was free.

Absolutely correct. L2 cache is used by ALL applications since it is high speed memory used to store data that may be accessed again at a later time. Since storing this data in cached memory rather than RAM, there is a speed improvement. 1 MB of L2 cache is pretty significant but so are the costs - cache memory is very expensive.

Correct with regards to HyperThreading too. Core 2 architecture does not support it which was a strange decision since its illustrious predecessor (Pentium 4) supported it. The newer Nehalem CPUs saw the reintroduction of HyperThreading as you also stated correctly although on some of the lower end models, HT has been disabled and L2 cache reduced (such as the Pentium G9650 which shares the same architecture as the i3).

Remember that the clock speed may not be as signifcant as you think. The number of instructions that can be processed per clock cycle can significantly boost performance on CPUs with lower clock speeds. 8% seems to be an arbitrary value since the overall speed should account for instructions per clock cycle, the speed of the data bus, how well the CPU can predict branching and so on. The most significant speed increase will be achieved from caching and it really is not irrelevant at all. Cached memory is expensive - and for a very good reason. Software do not have to be specifically written to take advantage of cached memory, although developers can implement caching themselves - for example, store database tables in RAM rather than constant SQL transactions.
