The TimelineX 5820TG is extremely dull to look at. If there were awards for the notebook that you could most easily use to illustrate the concept of a notebook itself, the TimelineX would romp it in. Yes, it's pretty thin (379x250x24/31.4mm) and moderately light (2.4kg with battery pack). But it's otherwise a very unremarkable notebook to look at. In some situations that's fine, and the more extreme designs of other systems can be a solid sales deterrent. Compared to Acer's own Aspire 8943G, though, the TimelineX 5820TG is a very dull cousin indeed.
