Better performance and battery life promised

The Acer TimelineX Series   set to chilled out mode

The busy bees at Acer have announced yet another batch of laptops to add to its burgeoning line-up – the all-new Aspire TimelineX Series.

Equipped with second-gen Intel Core I chips, the updated Aspire TimelineX Series offers a massive boost in battery life (Acer is quoting 10 hours), up to 750 GB of hard disk space and an ultra-thin design.

Underneath the chassis is a dedicated Nvidia GeForce graphics card, while connectivity comes in the form of HDMI, Bluetooth and optional USB 3.0 ports

Acer is offering up a number of screen sizes, with the smallest model, the 3830T, housing a 13.3-inch screen. The 4830T has a 14-inch screen and the 5830T has a 15.6-inch screen.

If you don't want a hard drive, then Acer can swap this out for SSD and sound comes courtesy of Dolby Home Theater v4.

Also on board is a 1.3 MB high-definition webcam, which allows you to shoot and record 720p footage for playback. We're not sure what kind of footage you would want to record in front of a webcam, but the option is there.

The Aspire TimelineX series UK release date is 1 August, with pricing and final specs to the announced.
