Hardware Description

It looks like a netbook, but the Acer Aspire 1810T doesn’t act like one. In fact, this 11-inch ultraportable offers very good performance for its size, while still offering all-day battery life. That’s because this machine is loaded with a relatively powerful dual-core Intel Ulta-Low Voltage (ULV) processor—not the meager Atom CPU. The $599 asking price is somewhat steep compared to netbooks, but those looking for something with considerably more gusto—and nearly 9 hours of battery life—can’t go wrong with this system.
