Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4820T-7633 NoteBook Intel Core i3 370M (2.40GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Svelte and handsome, like most Acer products. Reasonably high specs for a laptop at the time, yet also among the most lightweight. Relatively inexpensive.

Cons: In the hands of an aging parent this has suffered a shattered LCD and broken screen hinge, each a separate incident. It seems the low price and low weight come at the expense of build quality. The entire exterior is made of flimsy plastic which in most places is simply snapped together, and some of the internals are held in place with only epoxy.

The stock screen is glossy, which looks shiny and clear in a store but in real world use means you need to tilt it at a particular angle to reduce glare.

Keyboard back plate isn't particularly firm, and after a while will collapse inward slightly, causing key-presses to fail to connect.

Other Thoughts: Damaging the screen turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I was able to replace it with a much more usable matte screen.

OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 Intel 4th Gen CPU Haswell and AMD Phenom
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive. Modular.

Cons: Cables are a bit short, and you are limited to I believe only two for SATA.

I don't know how old this model of PSU is, but the inclusion of a molex cable seems unnecessary.

Maybe around 7 months in something inside started to burn and the BIOS began shutting it down automatically. Eventually it wouldn't start at all.

Other Thoughts: I was directed by tech support on how to jumpstart it, and it powered up again. Apparently the BIOS was oversensitive to power flux, so I changed some settings to deal with that as well.

To this day the unit is still running fine... but the experience has left me a bit skeptical of its long-term reliability, and I'll be unsurprised when it eventually fails.
