Acer has introduced the new thin and light Timeline Ultra M5 Series Ultrabooks measuring at .81 inches thin. The new Ultrabook includes 3rd Generation Intel Core processors, the latest in NVIDIA discrete graphics, optical drives, and 14- and 15.6-inch displays. The Timeline Ultra M5 notebooks starts at 4.3 lbs. with claimed 8 hour battery life. Here is more info on this new Acer Ultrabook:
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.
Depending on configuration, the Timeline Ultra Series offers 3rd Generation Intel Core i3 or Core i5 processors, NVIDIA discrete graphics (GeForce GT 640M LE ) 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 notebook also includes two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI and a 1.3 megapixel webcam.
