The Acer TimelineX series is the company’s line of sleek and light notebooks, comparable to (but slightly larger than) the new Samsung Series 9 or the now discontinued Dell Adamo. This year, the TimelineX series will be receiving a facelift with three brand new models up for show at this year’s CeBIT, which are the 3830T, 4830T, and 5830T. These laptops will be 13.3-inches, 14-inches, and 15-inches in screen size, respectively. Besides new looks, each model will be running on updated hardware, but unfortunately only specific details of 4830T are available for now.
Model 4830T, according to laptop-computer-planet, will be sporting Intel’s low-voltage Core i5-2410M at 2.3GHz with integrated GMA 3000 graphics, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 500GB HDD, LED-lit 1366x768 resolution screen, weigh just 2.2kg (4.8 pounds) and can last up to 9 hours from its 6-cell Li-ion battery. Essential features, such as 802.11n, HDMI-out, Bluetooth, five-in-one card reader, webcam, USB 3.0 and a DVD drive are included as well. All models feature the discrete Nvidia Geforce GT 540M graphics. Fortunately, models 3830T and 4830T should see an April release for Europe and Italy, so price and worldwide availability announcements should soon follow.
