Other Thoughts: I actually bought the AS4820TG with the i5 and ATI 5650 dedicated. I wanted to write a review mainly on the physical quality.
This is one of the best laptops I've ever owned. The build quality to my surprise is very good. I have owned Acer, Sony , Apple Macbooks, HP, Samsung and Toshiba laptops. Comparing the Timelinex series, this is very comparable to higher end laptops. There is a good amount of aluminum to keep a sturdy feel. The keyboard does have a slight flex to it but nothing too noticeable. The nice thing is that it has some weight to it so it doesn't feel cheap. I use to have a lower end Acer laptop and it did feel cheap but this is a big step up!
The only downside is the screen is not as sharp as I would like. Comparing to some of the newer Sony Vaios, it doesnt have the contrast ratio. Other than that this laptop is almost perfect.
With great battery life, powerful internals, and pretty good build quality I have to say this is by far the best laptop I have owned
