Remember that shiny new Acer TimelineX 1830T thin and light laptop I told you about yesterday? It’s still not for sale yet, but Acer’s gone ahead and added an official product page. While we’d been hearing that it would sport a Core i5 chip, Acer says this is the laptop will be powered by a Core 2 Solo CPU — which doesn’t really do much to differentiate this model from the Acer Aspire 1410/1810 notebooks that are currently available
The new system will support DDR memory though. And I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of a Core i5 version down the road — probably for a higher price.
Here’s a rundown of the specs:
- Display: 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixels
- CPU: Core 2 Solo
- Graphics: Intel HD graphics with 128MB dedicated memory, DirectX 10 support
- OS: Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows Vista Home Premium,
- Memory: Ships with up to 2GB of DDR3 RAM (supports up to 4GB of DDR2 or DDR3 memory)
- Storage: SATA hard drive
- Connectivity: 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Ethernet, optional Bluetooth and 3G modem
- I/O: 5-in-1 card reader, HDMI, VGA webcam, 3 USB ports, mic, headphone
- Battery: 6 cell, 5800mAh, 63Whr
- Dimensions: 11.22″ x 8.03″ x 1.10″
- Weight: 3.1 pounds
- Color options: Black, brown, red, silver
It looks like the new model is a fraction of an inch thinner than the Acer Aspire 1410/1810. But otherwise, it looks physically quite similar.
There’s no word on pricing yet, but SlashGear notes that Acer has posted product pages for new 13 to 15 inch TimelineX models with Core i3, i5, and i7 chips. They could start shipping as soon as next week.
