Acer TimelineX shown with Ethos design cues

Acer took its opportunity at CeBIT to show a complete redesign of its ultrathin notebook line, the TimelineX. The 13.3-inch 3830T and 14-inch 4830T both have a more upscale, part-metal design borrowed from the Ethos, extending to the new 'chiclet' key layout and the more reliable barrel hinge. Both systems will be unusually aggressive in performance: either will make the expected shift to 2011 Core processors but will use a fast GeForce GT 540M with 2GB of video memory.

Differences between the two are slight apart from the screen size, but it's believed a base 3830T would start with 3GB of RAM where higher end configurations will have 4GB; USB 3.0 and HDMI out are common to the range. The 4830T is known to have a low-voltage 2.3GHz Core i5, Intel's faster integrated video and a DVD burner. Despite the upgraded processor, Acer has estimated that it will last as much as nine hours on battery.

The two TimelineX models should first reach the market in April. US buyers have always received the Timeline series and may get it either at the same time or soon afterwards. [via NotebookItalia]
