A Sneak Peek At Acer's Thin & Light Aspire TimelineX 1830T

Acer plans to add the Aspire TimelineX 1830T to its lineup. This laptop measures less than an inch thick and weighs 3 pounds. It has an 11.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and integrated graphics. Reports have it that this notebook will offer a Core i5 520UM processor with a base clock speed of 1.06GHz. Using Intel's Turbo Boost, the clock can be increased up to 1.86GHz depending on a few parameters.

Other features include 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, a VGA webcam, multi card reader, three USB ports, and a HDMI output. Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and 3G are optional upgrades. The notebook's battery life is rated at up to 8 hours.



In addition to the TimelineX 1830T, reports claim Acer also plans to add three other models to the TimelineX line: the 13.3-inch 3820T, the 14-inch 4820T, and the 15.6-inch 5820T. Each of these new models is under an inch thick and offers your choice of Core i3, i5, or i7 processors.

Pricing details and an availability date haven't been announced, but we should know more later this month.

I think the style of the netbook is nice, but as you guys mentioned, the brown doesn't look so great.  I'm curious about how strong those hinges are, they look small.

If i didn't look at the size (13.3" and up), I thought it's part of the Aspire One line, it does look really small.

Look at this and look at the Gateway netbook. Which are made by the same company. I bet for one thing the devices used in the gateway at least to some degree will make there way to the Acer side of the company. Not to mention Acer owns the netbook market, and in general the timeline machines have also carved out a little place, and generally get some of the best reviews customer based and professional. Oh and about the brown color I am almost sure this is or will be available in at least 2 or 3 colors as well. The other timelines are available in about 5 I think I looked at one for someone who works with Sarah a month or two ago, and needed a new laptop which they asked me (about getting the best for there price line) for advice on.

OK, I'm still not getting the whole netbook thing? Most cellular companies have been handing out deals on these things, so I don't understand why one would go out and buy one for 3,4,5,6 hundred?

Like I have said before wait till the Ipad revolution starts and we see all the copy cats, like we see with the IPhone. Then maybe it will force these companies to step up their game and lower prices with better features.

About being a Gateway...Yeah...OK...Lets all keep pumping dollars and satiate these companies so they can keep those people in china employed :P

My cellular company didn't mention anything about a netbook deal to me. Which companies in particular are you talking about? Is it only for certain plans?
