Acer has just introduced its latest line of notebooks, the Timeline series. Designed to be thin, light, power efficient, and affordable, Acer is trying a new approach with Timeline. All models are less than one inch thick and feature LED-backlit 16:9 aspect ratio screens with a 1366×768 resolution. Models will be available in 13.3″, 14″, and 15.6″ screen sizes, and feature Intel Core 2 Duo Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) processors. Built-in WiMax, DDR3 memory, up to a 500GB hard drive or 64GB SSD, and a choice of integrated or dedicated graphics (no word on which chips) round out the specifications.
Other features of the Timeline series includes a multi-gesture touchpad, chiclet-style keyboard, “Laminar Wall Jet” cooling technology, and a claimed eight hours of battery life.
The reported price range is $699 – $899.
