Acer wins PC Advisor's Best Laptop award

Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T named top laptop

The Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T has been named as Best Laptop to have come through the PC Advisor Test Centre over the past 12 months.

Acer is one of the biggest names in computing, but it isn't afraid to innovate. The dual-core Timeline 5810T is a great example, not least because it shook up the laptop market by using a 15.6in screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This enables it to display Blu-ray HD films at their intended resolution with no squeezing or stretching of the image.

Naturally, the Timeline has a built-in Blu-ray optical drive. Its graphics chip is integrated and we had a few issues with the unusual design of keyboard, but we can forgive it these shortcomings when promised a stunning 9 hrs of battery life and real portability.

The runners-up in the Best Laptop category were the Apple MacBook Pro, HP Envy 13, Sony Vaio VGN-NS20J and Toshiba L500.
