Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Dual core? Needs more

There’s a 2.10GHz two-core Core i3-2310M processor on board, and while this isn’t the most ferocious number-cruncher on the planet it’ll certainly see you through day-to-day tasks. Part of the reason the 5830T feels so capable is that it's well loaded with memory: 6GB of DDR 3.

All this adds up to a machine that, while not the last word in computational grunt, won’t struggle playing back HD content, for instance. It chuntered through to a final mid-table score of 4817 in PCMark Vantage.

The only time the 5830T looked less able was during a bout of 3DMark 06 testing. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 chip might be able to borrow up to 1760MB of system RAM, but it fairly groaned through our tests to a final score of 1581.

Flip the machine over and the spring-loaded catches you’d expect to find holding in the battery are conspicuous by their absence: that’s right, Acer has opted to build the battery into the case. Not only that, but the removable panel with a battery icon on it doesn’t actually cover the battery. Getting access involves removing the entire underside - a huge palaver.
