Great Laptop

Acer Laptop Aspire TimelineX AS3820T-6480 Intel Core i3 1st Gen 380M (2.53GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 13.3" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Acer Laptop Aspire TimelineX AS3820T-6480 Intel Core i3 1st Gen 380M (2.53GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 13.3" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: -Amazing Build Quality -Speed -Price -Great Battery Life

Cons: -Heavier than expected (but do to the build quality) -Can hear the hard drive

Overall Review: For the money this is a great buy. It is the perfect size. Battery life is great, the first day i took it out of the box put the battery in and it lasted me 4 hours. It is a tad bit heavier than what I was expecting but that was because I was used to a cheap dell that used light plastic throughout the laptop. Why are you still reading this... just buy it!

Had to RMA the first one.

Pros: 1. Very quiet. 2. Great speeds. 3. No Pioneer logo on the front.

Cons: The first drive I purchased would play DVD's just fine, but when I put in my first blu-ray disc it wouldn't read it. This was my first experience in the blu-ray world so I was a bit perplexed. After a quick Google search there are two lenses in the drive, one for the DVD and one for the blu-ray. So I had to RMA the drive due a defective blu-ray lens.

Overall Review: The replacement drive works great and would highly recommend. Just cross your fingers you don't get a lemon like me!

Perfect at 4X Speed

Pros: 1. I like how the disk is plain white (no logos), with plenty of room to write what you need to on them. 2. 100% success rate at 4X speed. 3. No playback issues in my blu-ray drive and PS3

Cons: 1. Unfortuntely, when you burn them at max speed (I have a 15X BD-R drive) the success rate drops to 50%.

Overall Review: Unless you don't mind extra coasters, I'd stick with the 4X speed. You can probably get away with 5X-6X, but I wouldn't push it any faster than that.
