Kicking things off with the design, Acer TimelineX 1830T comes with an identical look as the Aspire One 721 netbook. It comes with a svelte profile, although it adds more to the overall weight department registering at 3 pounds from Aspire One’s 2.8 pounds. Nonetheless, it is highly portable and really easy to bring with you wherever you need it. It comes with 11.6-inch display with a textured lid and sleek lines. Thankfully, the laptop engineers have incorporated a black matte cover in replacement of the fingerprint-magnet glossy lid.
The Acer TimelineX 1830T comes with a six-cell battery, which can produce up to 6 hours of power. Gladly though, it does not cause an unsightly bulge on the back but rather creates a tilting system that offers a slight downward angle on the laptop body.
The keyboard design is same with the previous models, which is matte black for a sophisticated look. It is made up of FineTip keys that are flat and non-chambered but delivers a textured feel against your hands while you are typing on it. The layout of the keys is large enough to be comparable to the full sized laptops. The arrangement of the keys also facilitate in more efficient typing speed.
As for the touchpad, Acer TimelineX 1830T is a bit small with approximate size of 2.6 x 1.5 inches. It sits flush with the deck but the presence of two lines on each side demarcates the performance. Therefore, you might want to swipe harder on the touchpad in order to get the command activated.
