Acer 11 6in Timeline Rumor

Acer could be introducing a smaller Timeline that may ultimately kill the high end of its netbooks, a rumor from Taiwan's PC industry indicates. An 11.6-inch version of the Timeline is purportedly tapped for July and, DigiTimes says, will create pressure in the category. To avoid a conflict with the same-size Aspire One 751h netbook, Acer is believed to be either cutting the price of the 751h or else phasing it out entirely.

The reasoning behind the swap isn't provided in great detail but suggests that the 751h has been selling poorly compared to other, smaller Aspire Ones. Few netbooks go above 10-inch screens and are often seen as too close to ultraportables or other, faster notebooks in features and prices. Intel's CULV processors, used in the Timeline, help bring the prices down to near netbook levels but perform much better than Atom chips.
