Acer updated its Aspire TimelineX series notebooks with a new sleek and stylish, thin and light design complemented by long battery life and the latest technology and new entertainment features, including Dolby Home Theater v4 Audio.
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. Available in three sizes — the 13.3-inch 3830T, 14-inch 4830T and 15.6-inch 5830T — the designs measure about an inch thin and are very lightweight.
Powered by the latest second-generation Intel Core i5 and i3 processors with Turbo Boost technology. In addition, Acer PowerSmart Technology provides extra long battery uptime of up to nine hours on models with integrated graphics and up to eight hours for models with discrete graphics, as well as a long battery lifecycle of up to four years.
The new Aspire TimelineX notebook PCs are perfect for entertainment thanks to new High-Definition audio support with Dolby Home Theater v4 Audio that delivers crisp and clear sound through its two built-in 3DSonic Stereo speakers and when connected to a home theater system. The notebooks also have HDMI 1080p output, so customers can use a convenient single cable connection to deliver HD video and audio to an external source. In addition, the notebooks have a USB 3.0 port for fast transfers. Plus, the port can charge USB devices even when the notebook is turned off.
The new Acer Aspire TimelineX models feature an HD Widescreen CineCrystal LED-backlit display with 16:9 HD True Cinematic View and excellent 1366×768 resolution for stunning clarity and viewing at any angle. Several models in the new line come with integrated NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M or 520M graphics with NVIDIA Optimus technology to deliver crystal-clear images, brilliant color and lifelike video while maximizing battery life. Additional models feature Intel HD Graphics to provide superb visual performance with sharp images and rich color.
The thin and light TimelineX Series is ideal for staying in touch on the go. The HD webcam has a high 1280×1024 resolution and is placed in the center of the notebook for convenient video-chatting and capturing photos and video. The built-in digital microphone supports the webcam to convey excellent voice quality, while minimizing background noise and echoes. All of the new models have 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi for connecting to wireless networks as well as Gigabit Ethernet LAN for a reliable wired connection. Also, many configurations include Bluetooth.
The Acer Aspire TimelineX 3830T thin and light notebook has a 13.1-inch display, weighs only 4.12 pounds and measures only 0.87-1.15 inches thin. Both the Acer TimelineX 4830T (14-inch screen, 4.88 pounds) and Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830T (15.6-inch screen, 5.6 pounds) come with integrated DVD drives and feature a dedicated numeric keypad for quick and easy number input.
