Acer Aspire Timeline 1810TZ This version of the 1810T offers good performance and long battery life for a reasonable price.

Like its close relative, the 1810T, the Acer Aspire Timeline 1810TZ offers nearly double the power of netbooks while still delivering all-day battery life. At $579, this 11-inch machine isn’t cheap, but for about $180 more than a premium netbook you’re getting a dual-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and a relatively large 320GB hard drive. Plus, the 1810TZ lasts nearly 9 hours on a charge. While we’re not fans of the overly glossy lid, this is one compelling ultraportable.
Design

Not surprisingly, the Aspire Timeline 1810TZ looks the same as the Timeline 1810T and 1410; while at 11.2 x 8 x 1.2 inches it shares the same dimensions as its predecessors, it’s a slightly lighter 3 pounds. Our review unit had a glossy black lid with Acer’s metal logo impressed in the upper corner, and it picks up fingerprints fairly easily. The deck is a silver plastic that’s a decent simulacrum of brushed aluminum, and is offset by the matte black keyboard and glossy black bezel.

Thankfully, the 1810TZ’s six-cell battery does not bulge out the back. Instead, it bumps out of the bottom, tilting the system at a slight downward angle towards the user.
Heat

After playing a Hulu video at full screen for 15 minutes, we measured the temperature of the 1810TZ: the touchpad and the area between the G and H keys was 82 and 88 degrees Fahrenheit, respectively, and the middle of the undercarriage got as hot as 99 degrees. That last temperature is almost a cause for concern; we consider anything over 100 degrees to be too hot.
