Acer's TimelineX 1830T

Acer's TimelineX 1830T

As they often do, computer geeks everywhere got excited when they heard that Acer has made an FCC filing regarding a new laptop - the TimelineX 1830T - but not a lot of information was known about the computer. Now the mystery is solved as some computer bloggers have gotten their hands on some of the specs for the TimelineX 1830T and it seems as though, for the most part, they're pretty excited.

The Laptop is based on the Intel Calpella platform, specifically on the HM55 chipset and the Intel Core i5-520UM dual-core CPU. It has a base clock speed of 1.06GHz and supports Hyper Threading. It comes with Intel Turbo Boost technology, which can make it go as high as 1.83GHz, depending on the active cores, temperature, and utilization.

It features 2GB of RAM, an 11.6-inch screen with a maximum resolution of 1366 x 758 pixels, and a 160GB hard drive. The graphics core has a clock between 166MHz and 500MHZ. According to experts, that's not great for gaming, but it works well for video.

Connecting to the internet and other communication shouldn't be a problem. The laptop features Gigabit LAN, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, a multi-card reader, three USB 2.0 ports, and an HDMI output. As far as looks go, it has a full-sized keyboard with flat keys, is about an inch thick, has a textured mesh on the cover of the lid and the touchpad is barely noticeable.

The battery is supposed to last around eight hours. Acer will announce the new notebook during the last week of March, along with other new TimelineX Series notebooks. No word on when it will be available or how much the new laptop will sell for.
