Macles has published pictures and info of an upcoming ultraportable notebook from Acer. The Aspire TimelineX 1830T will be yet another 11.6-inch notebook supporting 1366×768 resolution but its major differentiation will be the integration of Core i5 CPUs. This offering sports a Core i5-520UM processor clocking at 1.06GHz and can go up to 1.86GHz with the help of Intel’s Turbo Boost. Additionally, it features Intel’s HM55 chipset, two memory slots, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI, SPDIF, optional 3G, card reader, USB 2.0 ports and a battery capable of giving up to 8 hours. Price is unknown but Macles reckons it to be unveiled in the last week of this month.
Meanwhile, Digitimes is claiming that Acer is readying to launch this Calpella Timeline series on March 22 (Acer Taiwan says March 30). Although the report does not mention the 1830T, it does hint about notebooks ranging 13- to 15-inches and having a battery life of up to 8 hours.
