Acer launches CULV-based notebook series

Aspire TimeLine goes thin and sexy


Acer has
unveiled its first series of Intel CULV-based notebooks, dubbed Aspire TimeLine.

The Aspire TimeLine series will be available in three sizes, 13.3-inch, 14.1-inch and 15.6-inch, and all three are just under an inch thick at the thinnest point, which makes them quite sleek machines.

The 13.3-inch 3810T measures 322 (W) x 228 (D) x 23.4/28.9 (H) mm and weighs 1.6kg with a 6-cell battery. It still ends up slightly bulkier than MSI's X340 or MacBook Air, but it's on par with Dell's Adamo.

If you need a bit more screen acreage, you can go for the 14-inch 4810T or 15.6-inch 5810T. The former measures 338.4 (W) x 240 (D) x 24/28.9 (H) mm, and it weighs just 1.9kg. Its footprint isn't much bigger than that of the 13-inch unit, although it weighs 300g more. Still, it weighs as much as an average 12-incher, and with its compact footprint it's got the best of both worlds. The 15.6-inch units measures 378 (W) x 259 (D) x 24.8/29.7 (H) mm, and weighs 2.4kg, making it the lightest 15.6-inch model on the market, at least until MSI launches its 2kg X600.

All three will be available with dual-core SU9400 or single-core SU3500 CPUs coupled with the GS45 Express Chipset with GMA X4500 integrated graphics and dual-channel DDR3 memory support.

As for storage, a wide range of hard drives is planned, ranging from 160GB to 500GB, and there's an 80GB SSD option as well. Unlike MSI's X600, Acer's 14-inch and 15.6-inch models will feature an optical drive, but the 13.3-inch model will not. Connectivity shouldn't be an issue, as you'll get n-draft wireless, Wimax, WWAN, Bluetooth and 3G, depending on the model.

And yes, the touchpad supports multi-gesture input, so you can play around with your photo albums like on a MacBook.

Unfortunately Acer did not reveal any pricing info, nor avaialability dates, but we hope to see these beauties at the end of the month.
