Acer now shipping redesigned Aspire TimelineX ultraportables
Acer today has just announced the official release of the 2011 Aspire Timeline X Series for the United States. To kick off the updated lineup, three initial models will be made available, the 13.3-inch 3830T, 14-inch 4830T and 15.6-inch 5830T. Each notebook is built in a lightweight aluminum chassis and is equipped with an Intel Sandy Bridge CPU, at least 4GB RAM, USB 3.0, HDMI, and Windows 7 Home Premium. All models will be fixed at a native screen resolution of 1366x768 pixels as well.
The notable difference between the three ultraportables is that the 3830T sports the discrete Nvidia GeForce GT 540M graphics and does not include an optical drive, while the other two models will come with integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 with a DVD-super multi drive. Additionally, the 5830T uses a Core i3-2310M processor while the others will use the more powerful Core i5-2410M. Otherwise, the key specs between these models are quite similar.
“From its inception, the Acer Aspire TimelineX Series has hit the mark in style, mobility, performance and battery life for ultimate PC productivity,” Said Eric Ackerson, senior product marketing manager of Acer America. The 2011 TimelineX redesign was first shown at CeBIT earlier this year.
The 3830T, 4830T and 5830T start at $779, $699 and $599, respectively. All three systems will come with the standard 1-year warranty and should be available now from Acer’s retail partners.
