When considering cost, keeping to a budget is always important. But like anything, you get what you pay for. You should always try to buy the “best” product for the money you can afford to spend (in other words- the best ‘value’ for your money).
The Acer Aspire TimelineX laptop is an amazing computer. Not only is it extremely light weight, weighing just a hair over 6 lbs, but also has a 500 GB hard drive and 4GB of DD3 RAM. It has a 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5-450M dual-core processor for smart performance with a speed boost (2.66 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology; 3 MB L3 cache). Intel’s Turbo Boost technology maximizes speed for high useage applications, accelerating performance to match your workload
The processor is like the brains of your computer – and having an Intel i5 dual Core processor is like having 2 brains working for you at once. This allows you to basically “multi-task” and perform several different functions simultaneously. I love this because at any given time I have more than three things going when I am working on my laptop and the last thing I want is dealing with a slow computer.
Also, with Intel’s “smart performance”, the processor can “power up or down” as needed, allowing the computer to conserve energy to get an amazing 11.5 hours of battery life.
I was also impressed with the overall ‘feel’ of this computer. While being light weight, the laptop still felt very solid and well built.
