Acer’s plan to replace the Aspire One 751 netbook with an 11.6-inch Timeline ultraportable – which we reported last month – has apparently come to fruition with this, the Acer Aspire Timeline 1810T. According to macles, the 11.6-inch 1366 x 758 16:9 notebook swaps the AO751’s anemic Atom Z520 processor for an Intel ULV SU3500 1.4GHz CPU, up to 4GB of RAM and the Intel GS45 Express Chipset with integrated GMA 4500MHD graphics and hardware HD video decoding.
Outwardly the chassis has few modifications over the AO751, though there’s now an HDMI port and S/PDIF output to go along with the gigabit ethernet and WiFi a/b/g/n. Acer are also throwing in optional integrated 3G and optional Bluetooth 2.1+EDR.
Battery life for the ultraportable is expected to be around 8hrs, while the OS is Windows Vista Home Premium with a free upgrade to Windows 7 once the new platform is released on October 22nd. No word on pricing for the Acer Aspire Timeline 1810T; it’s obviously going to be higher than the AO751, but is still expected to undercut the existing Timeline range such as the 3810T we reviewed last week.
