Acer's Aspire Timeline 1810T ultraportable has begun to show up in the wild, with at least two sites - ITC.ua and PCHome.net - getting their hands on the CULV ultraportable. As you might expect, first impressions are that - in terms of the hardware you can see - the 1810T is very similar to the Acer Aspire One 751 it in effect replaces; unfortunately there's no benchmarking feedback as yet to prove whether the ultraportable runs better than its lethargic predecessor.
Still, the 1810T gets credit for its large keyboard and slim chassis - which ranges from 22mm to 30mm thick - though the trackpad was on the small side. It's also a fingerprint magnet, with both the gloss red and gloss blue machines picking up prints with gusto.
Actual sales of the Timeline 1810T aren't expected to kick off in Europe until mid-August, with the ultraportable priced at €499 ($717). Standard configuration is Intel's 1.4GHz ULV SU3500 processor, GMA 4500MHD graphics and a 6-cell battery promising up to 8hrs runtime.
