Acer Aspire TimelineX - The next generation


Manno

Once again Acer pushes the boundaries of mobile computing to the extreme, creating a family of notebooks destined to impress. The all-new Aspire TimelineX Series builds on the achievement of the previous generation and reaches unprecedented levels of performance, convenience, connectivity, and battery life.

The next-generation Acer Aspire TimelineX Series is stunning in many ways. From the ultra-thin and smart design, to the powerful processor and graphics, to the advanced audio technology and seamless connectivity, you'll be amazed. The first thing that catches the eye is the new Cobalt Blue aluminium cover that blends with the silver profile to create a futuristic effect. The clean lines, geometric shapes, and smooth angles conjure up a minimalist and ultra-stylish look and feel.

The multi-gesture touchpad, in the same colour as the cover and palm rest, maintains a consistent overall look and feel, yet is easy to spot thanks to the slightly recessed design. On the side, the clear-cut design of the hinge becomes a rich visual element. The next-generation chiclet keyboard, set out on a silver base, makes the operation area look neat and tidy and is easier to clean.

Having achieved the standard of more than 8 hours, the next-generation Aspire TimelineX takes it a step further with as much as 25% more power : up to 10 hours of battery life for an entire day of work and entertainment on a single charge. On top of that, the battery pack boasts a super-long life cycle.

While the power capacity of a conventional battery starts to fade to 80% at around 300 charge cycles, Acer's new long-life battery formula retains 80% capacity for over 1,000 charge cycles. This means up to 4 years of use and translates into fewer battery replacements, which amounts to reduced energy and resources consumption. What's more, the battery is built-in, allowing a thinner, neater design and eliminating any risk of accidentally being released during operation.
To easily keep an eye on the battery level, the Aspire TimelineX Series is outfitted with a one-touch LED indicator that shows low, medium, and full battery levels in different colours while plugged in and unplugged.

New power-saving features have been implemented in the Aspire TimelineX Series, including the power-saving mode for the optical drive, which helps extend battery life and gives you more time for work and entertainment.

The Acer Aspire TimelineX Series features the second generation of the Intel® Core™ processor family, combining high performance with lower power consumption, along with fantastic graphics. This ensures better media processing for faster video editing and sharing, superior HD video playback with top-notch picture quality, and a terrific gaming experience. Aspire TimelineX laptops are also available with dedicated NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics, enabling incredible gaming performance and superior image quality with stunning 3D visual effects, realistic lighting and lifelike imagery. To meet the needs of enthusiast multimedia collectors, the Aspire TimelineX Series comes with up to 750 GB of hard disk space. Alternatively, all-new TimelineX models can be equipped with an SSD drive for ultra-fast boot times and application loading.

To intensify digital media enjoyment, HDMI® connectivity brings HD entertainment to your big-screen TV for the ultimate high-definition experience. The optional USB 3.0 port, meanwhile, transfers data to and from external devices up to 10 times faster than before. The rich entertainment experience is enhanced even further by realistic and vibrant sound, courtesy of Dolby® Home Theater® v4, enabling maximized volume without distortion and improved dialogue clarity through PC speakers, headphones or your home theatre system.

Ranging from the compact 34 cm (13.3") 3830T model up to the super-sleek 35.5 cm (14.0") 4830T and 39.5 cm (15.6") 5830T versions, the Aspire TimelineX family features slim Acer CineCrystal LED backlit displays with a 16:9 aspect ratio and 1366 X 768 HD resolution. These displays present razor-sharp images and breathtaking visuals in high definition for the ultimate go-anywhere cinematic entertainment experience.

The Aspire TimelineX family integrates state-of-the-art wireless and wired technologies: Wi-Fi CERTIFIEDä network connection, Bluetooth® 3.0 (optional) and Gigabit LAN. The new 1.3 MB high-definition webcam not only lets you keep in touch with your friends or business contacts through high-resolution video-chats, but offers improved video quality under low light and permits you to record your own brilliant HD 720p videos with audio to share on your social networks.

Stay powered up with the Aspire TimelineX by charging your smartphone or other USB devices without even turning the laptop on. With your laptop as your charging station, you can travel yet lighter because you don't have to carry so many power adapters. It's smarter than you ever thought a laptop could be. You can even plug in your smartphone headset to listen and talk through the combo audio jack.

The Aspire TimelineX series exceeds any expectations and is extreme in every way, in just one inch.
