Battery life has traditionally been one of the biggest limiters to mobile computing. With the technology in the new TimeLine series, Acer is able to achieve over 8 hours battery life from a single charge keeping you mobile and productive for the whole day.
Designed from the ground up to offer all day battery life, every component in the TimeLine series was selected for its energy efficiency, making it 40% more efficient than a standard laptop. The TimeLine series also features Acer PowerSmart technology which allows the user to change the settings between full performance and a more balanced performance for improved battery life to achieve up to 40% battery life extension.
Even the power adapter has been redesigned to be as energy efficient as possible. It consumer 66% less power in sleep mode and features an automatic power function stops it taking power when the battery is full, saving energy and stopping excessive heat build up in the battery pack. The PowerSmart adapter will save enough energy in a year to power a 65W bulb for 116 days, better for your wallet and the environment.
The TimeLine features an ultra thin and light design, ideal for portability. At just 1” thin, rising 5mm at its thickest, the TimeLine series fits neatly into your hand or in a bag. And at just 1.6Kg for the 13.3” Aspire 3810T, rising to 2.4Kg for the 15.6” Aspire 5810T, it is light weight for pain free all day mobility.
Available in either 13.3” or 15.6” screen sizes, the displays feature LED backlighting and Acer CineCrystal™ technology for improved efficiency and superior colour performance. To ensure you get the best view when watching widescreen movies the high definition screens are in 16:9 aspect ratio, the best ratio for widescreen playback.
Mounted into the top of the screen is the Acer CrystalEye web cam, allowing you to keep in touch with friends and family face to face.
The sleek design of the TimeLine series features a brushed aluminium cover which not only looks good but also helps to keep the weight down. On the inside, the sliver surround complements the gloss black Acer Finetip keyboard for a clean and uncluttered look.
The sides of the laptop house the external connectivity ports including an HDMi™ port, 3 USB ports, optical drive (Aspire 5810T only) and 5-in-1 card reader, allowing you to easily share information between multiple external devices.
Surround Sound Audio
Complementing the stunning visuals is a great audio experience. The Timeline series feature 2nd generation Dolby Sound room, deliver virtual 5.1 channel surround sound for an immersive audio experience thorugh speakers or headphones.
Multi-gesture Touch Pad
To keep you in finger tip control of your media, the touch pad features multi touch capability. By circling you finger you can move up and down a web page or document, swiping your fingers across the touch pad scrolls through multiple page or photos in an album and by doing a pinching motion you can zoom in on a photo or file and the reverse allows you to zoom out.
Traditionally, laptops were not comfortable to use straight from the lap due to the heat build up. The TimeLine is different, by adapting the technology used to cool modern jet engines, the TimeLine redirects cooling air along the base of the laptop, making it up to 5°c cooler than a normal laptop, allowing you to use it straight from your lap.
The TimeLine offers a choice of internet connectivity, either wired via Gigabit LAN, or wireless 802.11a/b/g/Draft-N, the latest wireless standard. To enhance the wireless signal on these laptops they include Acer SignalUp technology which uses a high performance PIFA wireless antenna and optimises the location of the antenna on the laptop to give exceptional wireless performance.
