Acer Aspire TimelineX 12 hour laptop: hands on photos!

The new Acer Aspire Timeline X thin and light laptops are official, and we’ve just gone hands on with them. This time round they’re sporting an oh so slick metal lid, and a battery life good for up to 12 hours on the trot – with the Wi-Fi turned on. Read on for the photos.

The new Acer Aspire TimelineX models, the 13.3-inch 3820T, 14 inch 4820T and 15.6-inch 5820T should be a huge speed improvement on the previous line up: inside there are top of the link Core i3, i5 and i7 Intel processors. The stamina of last year’s range stays though, with Acer promising battery life of 12 hours, even with Wi-Fi turned on with the new Acer Aspire TimelineX models.

On the specs front, the two larger Acer Aspire TimelineX laptops pack dedicated ATI Mobility Radeon 5650 or 5470 graphics for some gaming on the go, and all offer optional 3G for jumping online wherever, as well as HDMI out for plugging into a TV or monitor.

Acer’s also touting the skinniness of the Acer Aspire TimelineX range, with the 13.3 inch model clocking in at 28.9mm at its chubbiest point. That’s actually not that slim, but we were pleasantly surprised when we handled it: the tapered edges make it seem more so, and the brushed aluminium lid is a joy on the eyes.

Unfortunately, the 11.6-inch Acer Aspire TimelineX model that leaked out earlier this month wasn;t on show at Acer’s launch event today, but we’re told it’ll arrive towards the end of June. In the meantime, take a look at the first new Acer Aspire TimelineX models, right here and right now in our gallery.
