looks like a fantastic deal even with only windows vista! Heat!
#2
I bought this about 10 months ago for £329.00. You'll never get 8h out if it save the first time you boot it up. I loaded windows 7 which should be less intensive and with nothing else it cut it down to 6h but now it's got all the usual rubbish it'll happilly give you 5h.

It'd a great laptop. Pretty quick for day to day things, good storage, well built, lightweight and for £299 a great buy in my opinion.
#3
Will this kick out 1080p through the HDMI port?, might be perfect as a livingroom xmbc player?
#4
I bought this for my daughter when it was £349 at Argos. Great for most ordinary stuff. Good deal at this price.

Single core? No thanks

Hot.

Although is 'Power Management' not using it? :D

£299.99 for that? That is really expensive, go for Dell more reliable and similar price and better specs. At least 15" screen, duo core and windows 7 for £300.

That does seem like a good deal, for the price, if you're after the basics.

This is a idffernt machine aimed at those who travel a lot with a computer. It is light and has a long battery life. Those are key attributes for someone who travels with a laptop a lot.

Rubbish. Don't touch VISTA with a barge pole, even MSoft admit they got it wrong, hence Win 7.
Stock machines with Vista will be cheap for this reason. I had a Vista laptop and after a year got it re booted with XP. Vista is a disgrace for MSoft.

I got mine 3/4 months ago

Did the same but my battery gets about 7 hours or so?

Very good buy nevertheless!!

Vista was bad on release, but with the latest service packs on a modern machine is fine. Windows 7 is just a slightly more polished version.

These Timelines are made from a really nice metal finish, are slim, light and have a great battery life. As a portable computer I would take it over a Dell at almost twice the volume and thickness but half the battery life every time.

If you aren't planning on taking your laptop out and about then by all means get the more powerful larger machines. Anyone who has been buying laptops for a while though will know that there used to be a massive price premium to get kit this sleek and portable.
#14
Rubbish.Since SP1, Vista has been a very good OS ,certainly not much worse than '7'.Still run Vista on my work laptop (C2D 1.4ghz + 3GB Ram), can't complain.

In your way of thinking, 13.3" should cost 150 pounds because is smaller. :)
#17
Could you play something like sim-city on this? (not for me) ;)

Also, is this capable of bitlocker drive encryption on Win 7?

I agree... which is why it's cheap and so if you're going to ditch it anyway and replace with Ubuntu, it's a great way avoiding the Windows Tax.
#19
Deal title is misleading. This would be a hot deal if it was a 4810TZG (dual core, dedicated graphics) - but it's not, this is for a 4810T.

Edit: The title has since been changed from 4810TZG to 4810T. I think some of the original heat came from people just reading the title.

Vista is fine if your running it on the right hardware, which this should have.

It doesn't matter how heavy it weighs. Laptop these days are very light anyways, extra few lbs won't hurt no one if you get a better spec laptop. I'm simply giving my suggestions to people who may feel the same as i do who prefer/want to get the best out of their money, especially when it's £300 (no Windows 7, i personally don't think it's worth it).

Not necessarily, size isn't the problem. It's the specs, reliability and quality people should look out for. Don't get me wrong, i'm not saying people shouldn't buy this, simply giving my advice on what they could get with £300. That's all i'm saying.
#23
You're getting the models and prices mixed up, The 4810T is the single core @ £299.99.
The 4810TZG is the Dual Core @ £399.99
#24
Also the 3810 model doesn't come with an optical drive, where as the 4810 does.
#25
Lastly, the 4810T comes with Vista, and the 4810TZG comes with Win 7 64 bit.
#26
true but win 7 64bit, more ram, more hd space, dual gpu but slightly smaller screen.
#27
are there any problems with 64 bit windows like running older programs or older hardware or is that mainly ok now
#28
In answer to TWE:-

The 4810TZG comes with 4GB ram, dual GPU's, 320GB HDD and a 14' screen. I personally would rather get that, than the 3810 (13.3' screen) without an optical drive.

The 3810 is cheaper and presumably lighter and slightly more portable - if an optical drive isn't essential (you can always use a USB multi-drive when needed) then it might be a better option for some folks.

In reply to Ctpahhik Acerdirect is not buying direct from Acer. They are a seperate company (part of the laptopsdirect group) with some very bad reviews so be beware. I made the mistake of buying from them once and when I called Acer to complain they put me straight. Then called Averdirect for support and the nightmare began.

This looks like a good deal though.
#33
Thanks, Bear. Don't know about them as I never ordered.
I would go with 3810TZG posted above by "twe" even though it's a little bit more. Timeline series are for travel and very slow as desktop replacement. Smaller screen would result in longer battery life and weight less. There is about 7% difference between SU9400 and SU4100 for day to day tasks, performance difference is very negligible. 3810TZG has dedicated card which would guarantee smooth 1080p over HDMI if right decoder is used.

Just because weight and size don't matter for you doesn't mean that they don't matter for other people! Otherwise there would be no need to make smaller, faster computers. Manufacturers wouldn't make them if there wasn't a market for it.

When I'm on the road, I don't need the fastest, best spec'd machine... I want the smallest and lightest laptop I can get that has "reasonable" specs, reliability and quality.

I have the same dedicated card in my current HP laptop and plays 1080p fine. Mine has the newer 5000HD chip in it so that does it too. I did have an Asus UL30A and the 4500HD was fine for 720p but kind of struggled with 1080p.
Edit I can play games like left for dead 2 and even F1 2010 using it [well on low settings with F1 2010].

I don't think any of ULV CPU's can play 1080p content. I cannot get video to decode consistently via 4500-series GPU and ViewSonic VNB132 struggles with it. When GPU picks up load everything is good, if it does not I need (my other) laptop with T6400 to run it smoothly.
nVidia chips works great with any decoder on any resolution. I don't have any ATI laptops, but I would expect them to work just as good.

This looks a good deal. Personally I'd never go for Dell. They seem to break the day after the warranty expires. Must have a timer on it.

It would be GPU accelerated so the CULV processor should not be doing much anyway. You should try Media Player Classic Theater as its pretty good at using GPU, I find it a bit better than VLC player.

Isnt this 1.89kg?

I'm also not convinced that this is a good deal - old software and old hardware for new money
