  1. The specifications of a pending thin and light notebook by Acer have surfaced early, revealing a healthy blend of performance and mobility. The Aspire TimelineX 1830T has an 11.6-inch 1366x768 display, and is Acer's first Calpella-based ultraportable. As such, it packs a Core i5-520UM processor, which has base clock speed of 1.06GHz and scales up to 1.86GHz with Turbo Boost. It's said to have two memory slots, but exact configurations aren't known.

    The price hasn't been disclosed yet.

    "Pricing and release dates are expected to be officially announced toward the end of March."

    ...up to eight hours of batter life. I wonder how Acer got that figure. I suppose if I put the computer in sleep mode and leave it like that, then I could get up to eight hours also. I don't even bother to see how long a battery life will last any more because the figure is most likely over inflated.

    I would normally have said the same thing but Acer is kinda famous for its Timeline line and it's crazy battery life which does reach up to 8 hours, is thanks to the low voltage processor so I don't know how it's going to be with the i5 but I sure hope it keeps up the hope of lasting that much.

    Well I did not see this coming, since the latest addition to the timeline was recently. I was actually thinking in buying the 13.3" AS3810T-6376 ( 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SU9400 Processor, 4GB DDR3,
    500GB, Intel GMA 4500MHD Graphics) for $813 at amazon but kinda curious how this new processors hold up and whether they will keep up the amazing battery life. Only concern is that it'll be 11", would prefer 14", I hope they will have a 14 inch model available as well.

    That's an amazingly powerful laptop!
    So light, so powerful, so mobile and such long battery life, I can't see that it can even be possible, it'll certainly come at a cost, looks pretty sleek too.

    hello ...

    Turbo Boost like in Knight Rider, LOL! ;) ...

    8 hrs is ambitious, i think i can go recommend that one to one of my friend who really want that much autonomy, & the specs seem OK for what he'll do with it too.

    will check for more on Acer's site, for need to know when will be available.

    It's a good laptop. but if you are looking for a really powerful one, you can get one just by adding 150-200 $

    Its a trade off. It is a nice package no doubt about it. But for possibly 700 bucks I want more than battery life. 11 inches is not ultra small or comfortably large.

    $700 and no dedicated GPU?

    A pretty impressive portable package. I'm not sure about the price but the specs look great.

    As has been already said, not worth $700, reguardless of how prettied up it may seem. For a hundred dollars more you could have a 15.6" with a 1GB dedicated GPU with 4GB DDR3....

    I have one of the previous versions of this laptop and I love it! I'd recommand it to everyone who doesn't need a gaming laptop. I was afraid 11.6" would be too small at first, but I really like it now.

    nice! wish there was more information about the specs though. hopefully it won't be too expensive either
  24. Please forgive me when i speak bad englisch. you must know i am German, but i have got the Acer timeline 1810 tz and i am very happy and i have to say that the battery has a lifetime of 7 up to 8 hours while surfing with wlan. of course in my laptop there is a prozessor Su 4100 with a tdp of 5 Watt.
  25. I use 1810TZ too with 4GB RAM, and a USB HSPA 3G modem most of the time, and I got like 4 to 5 hrs. I am longing to see how that timelinex with i3 or i5 works out like, in terms of battery power. It's inconceivable how that can be done:)
