This is a great laptop, with lighting fast speed while doing pretty much anything, cool little gadgets like a 3.0 usb port, wi-di, and power off charging which I utilize a lot, very convenience little thing in my opinion. I did my research before finally deciding on this laptop, took me 3 months to finally decide on this particular Acer Timelinex. I enjoy the 14'' LED HD display, 15.4'' is just too big now a days. Movies and videos look great, the speakers are top notch as I am a little sound freak and it sounds great. It can run games like Dead Space 2 on the highest settings with no lag, I upgraded the ram to 8 GB. I'm just gonna keep it simple and sweet, this Acer is lighting fast in pretty all aspects you can find in a computer, the cobalt blue looks and feels great, and it easily transportable and light weight as it weighs less than 4 or 5 pounds. Pretty much it all just boils down to this, you CANNOT find a laptop, especially a 14'' laptop with specs like this one for such a great price. And oh yeah, it has a 9-10 hour battery life.

This is the successor to the old model, AS4830TG-6450, which is what I actually have, but the only changes made were a tiny bit faster CPU and smaller hard drive (probably due to Japan Tsunami). Not many laptops that are 1" thin with a 14" form factor and cost ~$700 have a Sandy Bridge CPU, dedicated Geforce GT 540M 1GB graphics card, optical drive and real 8-10 hour battery life (NOTE: Battery is non-removable). You also get one USB 3.0 port, an SD card reader, an HDMI and a VGA port.

Although I don't like that the speakers are on the bottom, they are okay. They have greater clarity and spaciousness than the MacBook Pro 13, but the Mac had slightly better bass and had a much fuller sound. The Dolby control panel has a lot of adjustments and enhancements.

The 1366x768 screen is higher in resolution, but a step down from the Mac, as it's not quite as sharp and viewing angles not as forgiving, but it is still LED backlit. Sometimes it's like looking at a film negative. The glossy screen is just as annoying as my Mac's, but no one is making matte screens anymore. You can open the lid with one finger slowly, but near the top, the keyboard starts to lift.

Like most laptops, you annoyingly need two hands to adjust volume and LCD brightness, one to press the Fn key and another to hit the arrow keys that are way on the other side. I really miss the illuminated keyboard of the Mac, but at this price point, I can't be too hard on the Acer. Unlike the Mac, the Acer will not just wake from sleep when you open the screen, i.e. you'll have to press a key to wake it. One big downside is that I snagged the "E" key and ripped it right off, but luckily it snapped back in.

2013 EDIT: I've had it for over a year now and have not had a problem yet. No Hard drive crash like others have had. I use it every day.

EDIT: New stuff at bottom...

I purchased this laptop a few days ago and received it on Saturday, so being that today is Tuesday, I haven't had a lot of time to do a thorough review.

I ran 3DMark 11 and 7. It didn't seem to run well on 3D Mark 11, but I confess, I didn't really look to see if that one was appropriate. I think it got around a 2300 on 3DMark7. Also, not sure how well the graphics switching is working, since I haven't been able to mess with the setting. I know you can set it to always be on.

I haven't installed any of my PC games on it yet, so I'll test more of that later. Also, I've only streamed a little content, but have had no issues. Based on how this thing is spec'ed out, I don't for see any issues with HD streaming or processor heavy tasks, since this is by far the strong suit of this computer. Windows experience gives it a 7 for processor.

Installing software has been incredibly fast due to the i5 processor. I will eventually upgrade to 8GB of memory, but the 4GB is doing just fine for now.

Two big things I noticed and I'm glad I read some reviews on the Timeline X series are:
1. The construction of the case is very solid. I love the feel of it. The bottom plastic is hard and thick enough to not flex and the metal just feels good. You will get fingerprints on the lid (lens cleaner works like a charm on the case), but no big deal.

2. I was streaming Youtube videos in bed with it and it never got warm on my lap. My old Gateway 6860-FX had major over heating issues (the reason why I had to get a new laptop, it died!!), and this one barely gets warm.

Have always been a Dell or HP guy for all my computer needs. However, after the latest HP laptop (DV6t) died after always getting too hot and being too heavy, we decided to take a chance on an Acer product. Researched many 14" laptops in the $500-800 range and decided that this one best fit the bill due to characteristics that are usually found in more expensive laptops. It arrived today very well packaged. Took it out and within 15 minutes the updates were done, wifi connection made, and it was up and running. Why we picked this one?
1) Battery life
2) 2nd gen Intel Core I5 processor
3) NVIDIA Optinus technology
4) USB 3.0 port
5) Does not get too hot (at least that's what the reviews say)

1st impressions: Well built, nice color (cobalt), very speedy, nice keyboard, beautiful screen, minimal bloatware, great battery, nice mouse-pad....will be able to provide a more complete review after a couple of weeks. Overall, this is a fine machine.
