Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T with Core i5-520UM breaks cover

Details of Acer's first Calpella-based ultraportable have emerged, ahead of the notebook's expected announcement in the last week of this month.  The 11-inch Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T eschews the CULV CPUs of its predecessors and instead reaches for Intel's Core i5-520UM, with a basic clock speed of 1.06GHz but the potential for 1.86GHz with Turbo Boost.  Meanwhile battery life is rated at up to 8hrs.

Unchanged are the 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 display and roughly inch-thick chassis, along with the full-sized keyboard with its distinctive flat key-caps.  The chipset is Intel's HM55 and the 1830T uses integrated graphics with a dynamic core capable of 166MHz to 500MHz.  Inside there are two memory bays.

Ports and connectivity include HDMI, S/PDIF, gigabit ethernet, WiFi b/g/n, a multi card reader and three USB 2.0, while 3G and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR are optional.  No word on pricing or specific availability, but we should find that out – together with details on the rest of the new TimelineX range – later in March.
