Thanks to Intel's Sandy Bridge platform, it's finally possible to own a well spec'd notebook that doesn't weigh as much as a desktop. The latest example of this is Acer's redesigned Aspire TimelineX Series, a family of "sleek and stylish, thin and light" notebooks powered by Intel's second generation Core i5 and i3 processors in a refined form factor that's less than an inch thick all around.
"The new Acer Aspire TimlineX Series is a best-in-breed notebook line that combines performance and portability in an incredibly beautiful and refined form factor," Acer explains. "The notebook's upscale look and feel centers around its uncluttered, elegant design. The notebooks have a clean layout with a large touchpad and chiclet keyboard to promote both enjoyment and productivity."
Listening to Acer describe the redesigned TimelineX Series, we're not sure if we're supposed to hammer out spreadsheets or ask one of these models out on a date. In any event, TimelineX notebooks are available in 13.3-inch (3830T), 14-inch (4830T), and 15.6-inch (5830T) form factors, all three of which are purportedly thin and light.
In addition to Core i5 and i3 processor options, other features include an HD widescreen CineCrystal LED-backlit display (1366x768 resolution), GeForce GT540M and 520M graphics with Nvidia Optimus technology, HD webcam (1280x1024), 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, GbE LAN, DVD burner (4830T and 5830T), dedicated numpad (4830T and 5830T), and Windows Home 7.
New model TimelineX notebooks are available at retailers now starting at $600.
