Acer Timeline 4810TZG laptop £399.00 @ Argos

My laptop's getting on a bit and I'd like a replacement with better battery life so Acer's Timeline range appeals. This is the 14in version with DVD drive, Pentium SU4100, dedicated graphics, 4GB memory, 320GB hard drive & Windows 7.

I see there's a new Timeline X series but reviews seem to suggest the old ones are better built and have better battery life.

Same basic machine with a bigger hard drive but lower spec graphics, not that the 4330 can be called a great chip. But same price and if storage is more important might also be a worth consideration.
Not too sure if it's a great deal, if you are after a bigger screen the 5810TZG's are currently cheaper with the same spec
How are the keyboards and general build of these Timeline models compared to other Acer models? (which in general I don't like at all).

Saw those at IT247 (never heard of them - anybody had any experience?), works out about £360 by the time I've paid delivery which does seem a very good deal. £40 less is tempting but currently lugging a 15.6" laptop about and the smaller screen is tempting (though I resent paying more for it)

All the reviews I've seen and comments on previous threads by owners suggest the original Timelines are well built and that battery life is pretty much as Acer claim (though whether that's still true 2 years later - my current Gateway laptop is 3 years old and the battery life has shrunk from over 2 hours when new to less than 30 min!). However reviews for the new Timeline X series (with i3 processors) suggest build quality has dropped (back to the usual Acer standards) and battery life is not what they claim.

TZG model with proper graphics appeals 'cos my current laptop struggles to show movies - but maybe that's it's cr*ppy Celeron processor rather than inbuilt graphics?
There is a lengthy thread here which discusses the merits of the 13" 'business' version of this laptop, the 8371.

I own an 8371, but have used and setup the 3810TZG and the 4810TZG. I may be biased, but I thought build quality was slightly better on the 8371, but all were to a high standard.

What sets all these models apart is the excellent battery life and discrete graphics at a low(ish) price point. The 3810 and 4810 look the more stylish and have HDMI out (important for some) and glossy screen, whereas the 8371 and 8471 are VGA out, a matt screen and include integrated bluetooth.

A small point, but the AC adapter is a staightforward affair and not likely to suffer the problems that some other laptops like Dell have with pins getting bent, laptops not charging etc. Additional AC adapters can be had for about £10 from ebay, if you don't want to lug an adapter around with you.

If they were knocking this out at £30 less it would be a steal - at £399 your still getting a great laptop.
Gone up to £429 now
