Good deal, great price for this laptop.

Been looking for something like that for a while...
Ideal for those who thinks netbooks are too tiny / not powerful enough and 15-16" 3kg laptops are too big...

Asus UL80Vt & Dell 14z will are coming too but first is going to be expensive and the latter worse battery life.
#4
1.9Kg is just too heavy for me for a CULV laptop for which you are paying a premium price. I set the limit at 1.5Kg which is closer to Netbook weights. 11.6 to 13.3 inch seems more practical for a CULV system but each to their own.
So too heavy, too big and it's an Acer. I'm gonna pass.

Fair enough if to heavy for you by 400gr however it is targeted for a different market.

11.6 is definitely to small for me for all day work / home, 13.3 bit better, 14 hits the sweet spot, with this resolution you can comfortably work all day long...on a single charge.

Don't underestimate it because it is an Acer, Timeline series gets glowing reviews and has excellent build quality. In this particular the lid is made form brushed aluminium.

Take for an example the recent deal for Lenovo U350 - great deal as this one.
Here you pay 100 more but you get twice the processing power (dual core), twice the battery life, bigger screen, better build quality (based on reviews & forums) in a body just @0.3kg heavier.
I almost ordered the U350 but all above made me think 100 more is a price worth to pay for better usability.

I don't need a laptop, so this is cold from me.

Only joking - but this forum is like that sometimes.

Have some HEAT from me.
#7
great price, the laptop get very good reviews, hot
#8
In my experience the biggest let downs for Acer are peeling paint/easily scratched or worn, and poor quality hinges. If you are a serious user opening and closing it several times a day then check the component quality. This is a new Acer range to me, but it's worth comparing to say business class Lenovo or HP machines if you need something to survive.

Yup, that's the same laptop. A bit better deal if you can get the 5% voucher to work.
I'll stick with my PCWorld order though.

Very good Acer Timeline laptop deal. I have been waiting for Core 2 duo version. I thought it will cost a lot more than core 2 solo version. It is even cheaper now. Can't go wrong for £499. Heat added.

There’s possibly a mistake in the item description as according to Acer it has a Pentium SU4100 (1.3 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) and Comet agree. That makes more sense as the Core 2 Duo CULV chips are fairly expensive. Not a big deal as you only lose a 100Hz and 1MB cache.

There is no mistake - just a hot deal :thumbsup:
Acer do not offer SU4100 with this laptop. Only options are Core 2 Solo 3500 and Core 2 Duo 9400 - as in this deal - hence it is so hot, bargain for this price.

No wonder there’s a disparity as Acer mention only the Pentium SU4100 on the Configurations page but on the Tech Spec page they list only the Core 2 based CPUs! :thinking:

I see now where did you come up with 4100 from, might be confusing indeed.

The 4100 seems to be the offering with AS4810TZ code (Intel GMA) & AS4810TZG (ATI 4330), all the AS4810T reviews state 3500 solo or 9400 duo only, so let's hope pcworld boys didn't mess up with it.

Perhaps Zub who got it instore can check processor with CPU-Z and product code?
I'll check as soon as got it delivered.

Anyways the original price 750 seems right for the 9400 so I hope it is a good deal and not mistaken/m1spriced offering.

I’ve been looking for a deal on the Timeline 3810T as it’s more to my taste due to being lighter and more compact and in the process I looked at the specs for the 4810T. The online stores in the UK are almost all showing the Pentium CPU rather than the C2D; only PCW showed otherwise. It could be that they were originally going to ship it with a C2D which is why the pre-production review samples had that CPU but then changed their mind to lower costs. So maybe some early models hit retail with the C2D! CPU-Z is your friend. :)

Haven't had the chance to open it yet but it says SU9400 on the spec label on the side. The full model number is 4810t-943g32mn.

I googled the product ID and it seems to be no longer available in the UK apart from Currys, PCWorld & Dixons. All the links I saw relating to it show the Core2Duo SU9400 but they are in other European countries. Anyway, it makes this quite a bargain. :)

I'm reposting this question in this thread, as the earlier Curry's thread doesn't seem to be getting many posts. And I know this model isn't suited for this, but still interested.

Has anyone tried game emulation such as MAME and WinUAE on these? And older PC games and had acceptable performance? Please state what the game was.

My current laptop has CPU (T5270 1.4GHz) with similar performance (~5% slower in CPU benchmarks than SU9400), so I'll install WinUAE and try, will let you know how it goes, but honestly I don't think it will be any problem for this CPU.

Tests completed, have tried 1.5.2 with Lemmings, 1280x720 windowed, full sound - no problems at all, constant 50FPS with first core near idle and second core 10-15%, peak at 25%.

So you should have no problems at all with running this on SU9400.

Thanks for that luke997. Always good to have proper confirmation.

You can get some cheap Warranty extensions for Acers from Laptops direct.
3 years = £43.97
3 years + 15” case & mouse = £54.97

I think it extends the basic warranty to 3 years not adding another 3 to it.

Quidco = 2%
Topcashback = 3% with bonus.

Once you opened it can you confirm the style of return key? Reading Trusted Reviews it has the single height return, but mentions

Trusted Reviews website
Eagle-eyed UK readers may notice the US-style return key, but this should be rectified for models shipping to our fair shores.

The pictures on PC World look the same as Trusted Reviews, but PC World are probably using stock pictures from release time.

Can anyone help me with this? The product info says it has HDMI connectivity, but the spec says "TV-out: NO: Allowing you to plug your laptop into a TV to watch DVDs". I thought that it was HDMI which allows you to connect your laptop to TV??

Very good deal mate. How is Euro PC? I have never used that company before. According to my experience, Dixons refurb are as good as new. So are they as good?

I bought a new camcorder from them years ago at a great price and had no problems.
Refurbs are hit and miss really, most are likely to be cancelled orders or customer returns within 7 days unless a model has major problems in which case there's more chance of repaired models being sold on.

I am a bit more concerned about the condition of the the item. When you get your camcorder, was it in pristine condition? Does it show wear and tear?

The camcorder was New.
Refurbs are always going to be hit and miss and I have no experience of refurbs with Acer or EuroPC. At that price if I was interested I'd take a punt knowing that I could return it if it's a dog and it also has a full warranty. They're a fairly large company I think.

Been to local PCWorld today, they had 2 of those laptops in stock for 495, but ex-display so will have to wait for the delivery.

It is certainly SU9400 CPU however, and by looks it is as good as the reviews say and as for 14 - incredibly light.
They had also Dell 14 (not sure how - it is not available on Dell.co.uk yet) - have to say disappointing, worse build, worse CPU and 529....

I was in Curry’s today so looked out for this and they had a couple of ex demo models reduced to about £430 but they were Core 2 Solo and looked a bit worse for wear.
Very nice looking machine though and I can see what the reviewer meant when saying it looks like a business class laptop. A pleasantly restrained look compared to some of the gaudy tat on display in Currys.

Do you mean the Inspiron 13z as that’s the same class of laptop?

As you can tell from all my posts I'm warming to this model and if my bargain Dell Inspiron 11z proves to be an uninspiron I might go for one of these. :thumbsup:

Nope, Dell 14z, it's the new model, just out in US, not yet on Dell.co.uk but looks like some retailers already got it.

Here is a review:
http://www.anandtech.com/mobile/showdoc.aspx?i=3664

However the spec in the store was different with Core 2 Solo... anyways not that good and
with decent spec getting pricey...

Good choice, I was myself last 2 months looking for something light and usable for full day, I can't even tell now how many reviews I've read, but everytime I settled on something I got another review with some bad points so looking again.

This was the only one without even minor flaws - of course only for someone who's looking for
that kind of laptop, not some desktop replacement for gaming or netbook on a train...

I have Samsung SSD in my old laptop, will replace the stock 320GB with it, so should go even longer on a charge, as well as bit lighter - not to mention how snappy Windows is with SSD - no CPU, even i7 gives such a boost in responsivness in system and application as such upgrade.

A bit off-topic here but really can't recommend enough SSD on any laptop, I was a bit sceptic at first but now would never go back to normal HDD, totally agree with Anantech guys:

http://www.anandtech.com/storage/showdoc.aspx?i=3667&p=9

I still firmly believe that an SSD is the single best performance improvement you can buy for your system today. Would I recommend waiting until next year to buy? This is one of the rare cases where I'd have to answer no. I made the switch last year and I wouldn't go back, it really does change the way your PC behaves.

Funnily enough I nearly bought an Intel X25-M 80GB today from Ebuyer. They had the newer model for £167 but since I was just starting to read up on the subject I didn’t jump to snap it up. I looked back later and they were all gone; they only had 7. That would be for my desktop though as I need more storage in a laptop than that.

Great price on this brilliant drive, shame they were sold out... I'm a bit tempted too to put some ssd to a desktop now, 167 for X-25 with TRIM is hot...
