The Ultra Battle: 7 Intel CULV Notebooks Fight it Out!

Acer Timeline 3810t

Back last year, we reviewed the 14-inch Acer Aspire Timeline 4810t, which happened to be one of the first few CULV processor based notebooks to hit the market. It was a very decent notebook, and one that we quite liked, so it's no surprise that we took to the smaller 13-inch version that shares much of the same build quality and design. While it lacks the optical drive of the 14-inch, the updated Acer Aspire Timeline 3810t comes with a switchable discrete graphics option for gaming purposes. Do note that like most Acer units, the 3810t comes loaded with plenty of bloatware, so beware.

Slim is the name of the game with the 13-inch Acer Aspire Timeline 3810t.

The side ports hold the usual standard USB ports, card reader, HDMI port and LAN port.

The other side keeps it simple with another USB port, VGA and audio jacks.

For its interior, you'll find a familiar looking design that you'd be hard press to differentiate from the 14-inch version.

The chiclet keys are comfortable on the fingers while the keyboard itself allows for easy cleaning.

The trackpad is responsive and easy on the fingers and can be turned off via a button located right next to the trackpad.
