Acer Introduces Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 Ultrabooks in the U.S.
Acer America today announced the Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 line of Ultrabooks in the United States! These are slimmer and lighter than earlier generations of the Timeline series, the new Timeline Ultra models are just .81 inches thin and weigh as little as 4.3 pounds. Depending on configuration, the Timeline Ultra Series offers 3rd Generation Intel Core i3 or Core i5 'Ivy Bridge' processors, NVIDIA discrete graphics and 14-inch LCDs or 15.6-inch edge-to-edge displays. All models include a 2-spindle design (DVD drive and hard drive). A 500GB hard disk drive offers plenty of space for large files, while a 20GB integrated solid state drive enables instant-on capability. The Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 Series of Ultrabooks will be available at the end of June. Prices begin at $679.99 and range up to $829.99.
The ultra-thin profile of the Ultra M5 Series delivers a minimalist, modern look. The stylish silver cover is made of an aluminum alloy that not only looks modern and elegant, but adds to the system’s overall sturdiness. The 15.6-inch models include a sleek edge-to-edge display that keeps the LCD screen smooth and streamlined. A full-size chiclet keyboard with an independent standard numeric keypad makes typing more comfortable and increases productivity. These no-compromise Ultrabooks provide up to 8 hours of computing on a single charge via the PowerSmart long-life battery pack which provides up to three times longer battery life cycles than traditional batteries (1,000 vs. 300 cycles). These batteries also maintain 80 percent capacity after the 1,000 cycle count, which means the battery will last longer, reducing the need to replace it. In addition, advanced thermal technology keeps users comfortable even when the Timeline Ultra is placed on a lap.
