According to the latest tech chatter, Acer has the MacBook Air in its sights and plans to offer a competitive product in the form of an ultra-thin measuring a scant 1.9 centimeters.
Rumor also has it that Acer plans on cramming one of Intel's next-gen Calpella ULV processors into its upcoming ultra-thin. We're talking about one of Intel's ULV Core i5 or i7 processors here, which would be no small deal. These chips come rated at up to 1.2GHz, but can ramp as high as 1.8GHz and 2.26GHz in Turbo Boost mode, and they also support Hyperthreading.
If this thing comes to fruition, it would offer traditional notebook-like performance in a frame smaller than the company's existing Timeline series.
No other details are yet available, including price or availability.
