Acer Aspires To Multi-Touch Notebooks
0Overall Score

Acer is bringing out the 2011 rendition of its Timeline series of notebooks that push battery life and mobility.

The Aspire TimelineX family is the third generation of the series and this time comes in three separate sizes with some of the latest connectivity options.

The three models include the 13.3 inch 3830T, 14 inch 4830T and the 15.6 inch 5830T. All models are thinner than an inch and range between Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, with Nvidia graphics cards in tow.

While still not much of a tablet, the typical touchpad on these notebooks includes multi-gesture functionality for pinch, flick and swipe navigation.

The laptops have three USB ports and a single USB 3.0 port for faster transfer speeds and the ability to charge devices even when the notebook is off.

Other inputs include HDMI, VGA, a card reader for multiple storage card sizes and audio jacks. Other features include an in-built 1.3 megapixel webcam and surround sound speakers.

According to Acer, battery life expectancy is over eight hours on a single charge.

The Acer Aspire TimelineX range of laptops are set for release later this month, retailing from $1,199.
