aspire 1410

Update: Now you can read my detailed review of the Acer Aspire 1410.

The Acer Aspire Timeline series of thin and light computers aren’t exactly netbooks. They have Intel CULV processors that use more energy and provide better performance than most Intel Atom based netbooks. But it’s never been the processor that defined the netbook, it’s the size and price. And most of the Timeline notebooks are 13 inches or larger. But there is one model I’ve been keeping my eye on: The Acer Aspire Timeline 1810T, which is expected to have an 11.6 inch display and a 1.4GHz Intel ULV SU3500 processor and GMA 4500MHD graphics.

Now it looks like Acer may be rebranding that model so that it’s not part of the Timeline series or the Acer Aspire One netbook series. Acer’s German site simply lists a model called the Acer Aspire 1410, which certainly looks a lot like the 1810T. And Netbook Choice spotted two US retailers taking pre-orders for the Aspire 1410 for between $465 and $475.

The laptop has also been spotted in the wild in China.

So let’s see. Is it priced under $500? Check. Does it weigh less than 3 pounds? Just barely. Sure, it’s got a screen larger than 10 inches, but there are plenty of so-called netbooks with 11.6 inch and 12 inch displays these days. And I’m guessing the Aspire 1410 will perform circles around them when it comes to graphics and CPU-intensive tasks. The only question I have left is what kind of battery life you’ll be able to squeeze out of the 6 ell, 4400mAh, 47.5WHr battery.

Oh, and if that wasn’t enough for you, it looks like there’s also going to be an Acer Aspire 1810TZ model, sporting a dual-core CULV processor.

  1. Do want.

    Do want very much a Netbook with battery life, and can actually play an old game or two without insulting my intelligence. It’s got to play movies, too, so I can cart it around, and be small and light.

    This is a grown up Dell Axim x50v, which I am looking to replace. I don’t do 950GMA. 4500mhd isn’t much better, but at least it’s modern. Bring it on, I’ll buy it in a few months once it becomes ubiquitous.

    Seriously, if it runs WoW at decent resolutions (you CAN’T do Dalaran on a 950GMA or dream of raiding) and the battery life + weight is good, I’ll throw away a laptop capable of WoW at 60fps for one that can do it decently at 30fps and doesn’t make me, a 105lbs. woman damn near die when running through the Miami Airport. There is no change, however, if it is just another expensive as hell “ultraportable”.

    1. You’re a 105 lbs. woman that plays WoW and knows optimal framerates and the correct usage of the word “ubiquitous”?

      I’m in love and you are most likely married.

      Oh yea and the PC sounds pretty alright too.

  2. i’m getting more interested again. i really like the 751 externals, and if this is both faster and reasonably priced…
