I searched for a laptop for several months before deciding on this one. It seems that the 13" ULV Processor laptops from HP, Toshiba, Lenovo, etc all had issues of one kind or another that dissuaded me from moving in one of those directions. Most of the competitors also have the SU4100 processor, and i'm glad I opted for this SU7300 as it compares performance-wise with my 17" HP Core 2 1.73GHZ processor. The only thing it lacks is graphics memory, but if your intended use is not for high power graphics, this one will be just fine.The only issues I have found with it after a few weeks of operation is that the screen brightness flickers occasionally and then returns to the proper brightness. Similarly, the audio will chirp once in a while with intensive processor operation. Neither issue is problematic enough to concern me, but is the only reason that I gave 4 stars instead of 5.The build quality is quite good, and if I had to make the choice again, I would still buy this laptop.

So far after more than two weeks with it, i can say i am a happily satisfied customer. Though i am annoyed by some quirks. The battery is a just a bit loose but nothing to worry, the sound sucks, and the keyboard is greasy. But none of these are dealbreakers. overall it fits my needs as a college student: lightweight, solid build and design, and Windows 7 is awesome. Way better than vista. And the price is just about right (though i got it cheaper than current price).

First, I would like to say there is a ~$590 version of this laptop also sold here on Amazon. The differences between that laptop (Product ID: Acer Aspire Timeline AS3810T-4925) and this one (Acer Aspire Timeline AS3810T-8737) is the 4925 has 3GB of ram where the 8737 has 4GB. Also the 4925 has a 320GB HDD while this 8737 has a 500GB HDD. I've noticed some of the specifications on the 8737 page are incorrect most notably the ones mentioned above. There is also another model (6376) that is considerably more money (~$[...]) and without a lot of research I only see that it's processor is 1.40GHz instead of the 1.30GHz that the 8737 has. As I'm typing this this laptop is listed on Amazon for $[...] even though I purchased it this past Friday for $[...]. [...].So far I'm in love with this laptop. Now it's only been a couple of days but it's great. I was a little worried about the keyboard since the keys were not your normal design but after about 20mins with it I love it. It took just a little while to get used to it. I purchased this laptop because my MSI Wind U100 had a resolution of 1024x600 where the height of the screen wasn't friendly for some applications. This laptop's resolution is not only perfect but the screen size 13.3" instead of 11.1" is great. It's not too big and not too small, just right. The multi-touch pad is also a neat feature, although the only one I've been using frequently is the scrolling which is two fingers up and down on the pad. If you rather use a regular wired/wireless mouse instead of the pad it's easy to do that with the included button just outside the mouse pad. This button will disable the mouse pad so that you don't accidently trigger it while typing. The build of the laptop itself is also very nice. The outside lid is Aluminum while the rest of the laptop appears to be plastic. I've seen some people were unhappy with the lid not going back further. It seems to recline somewhere between 45-60 degree angle. It shouldn't be a problem unless your using a docking station in which the laptop is in a vertical position.The laptop comes with some unneeded programs pre-installed but it isn't too much trouble to just jump into the Control Panel>Programs and Features and uninstall what isn't wanted. Windows 7 Home Premium is a wonderful OS from my experiences over the last couple of months since release. It's very user friendly and I love the new Taskbar. Acer also has some software for you to create a backup disk for your windows installation. You will need a usb DVDR/W drive for this however and I haven't tried it yet. This isn't necessary however because you have the restore partition on the hard drive but it would be a wise decision if your planning on formatting the whole drive for another installation or if your drive were to go bad.The battery life is amazing. For a laptop of this size I wouldn't have expected to get 8hrs of battery life but after trying it out it is as advertised. The speakers at times do sound a little buggy where I get sound distortions but this might have been due to some problem with VirtualBox/Ubuntu. The wireless G is great. I used to have problems connecting in some areas with my MSI Wind U100 but those same areas work perfectly with this laptop. I haven't had the opportunity to try it out with wireless N yet.I really can't find much at fault with this laptop. Very nice quality and at what I thought was a very reasonable price. I hope Amazon brings the price back down to where it should be though. Out of the 3 models I referred to at the beginning of this post I'd vote that this model (8737) gives you the most bang for your buck.

The last time I purchased a laptop was almost 2.5 years ago. Style and features seem to have changed considerable, as they had the previous 2.5 years, which is slightly less than the extra warranties I had purchased on the then current notebooks!This particular notebook seems to be influenced by the new MacBook air because it is 1 inch thick, and the net-book revolution because of battery-life and general build. Though it has a 13.3 diagonal screen, it at about 3.5 pounds and is about 1 pound lighter than the 12.1 HP tablet it is currently supplementing. I say supplementing because the Acer has no CD/DVD drive, nor bluetooth, nor ExpressCard; but neither has Firewire.The screen is very clear and bright and the processor very snappy. Bloatware seems pretty limited. The price CAN BE right.It runs COOL and the battery life seems very promising!

I just received this Acer 3810T early this week and I'm very impressed. Solid build quality despite being very thin and the LCD is bright with very good contrast. It runs much faster than any netbook I have ever used since it has an Intel CULV processor - the SU7300. It also has a huge 500-Gb HDD and 4-Gb of DDR3 RAM. I have only had mine long enough to charge the battery twice - but I would rate the battery life at 6+ hours while surfing with wireless and brightness set at less than 50%. The speakers are pretty good - but not loud enough for long-term music listening or movies. I cannot detect any flex in the keyboard - but the keys are a little too glossy to suit me. Both the webcam and the on-board microphone are excellent and this is a great system for Skype calls. The lid appears to be aluminum but be careful - it is pretty flexible when twisted. But, to Acer's credit, the frame around the LCD is very solid and much better than the cheap and flimsy frames on most other sytems (except for MacBooks). The battery is slightly loose on one side on mine but it is not a deal-breaker at all. Overall, this is a great Acer for the price, with a really nice LCD and good battery life, but the build quality on the Acer 1410/1810 series is a little better. Oh - one last thing - the hard drive on mine is a Western Digital - no cheapy Ocean-gate or T-shiba on this system.
