The next-generation of Acer's popular "all day computing" lineup, the 11.6-inch Aspire TimelineX 1830 (model AS1830T-3721) is an ultra-portable powerhouse that weighs just over 3 pounds yet packs in a full-size keyboard and ultra-low voltage Intel Core i5 dual-core processing.
The Aspire TimelineX 1830 measures just over 1 inch thin
The TimelineX 1830 provides up to 8 hours of battery life thanks to a combination of Intel's Core processing technology and the LED-backlit display, which enables a 22.2 percent power savings compared with other notebook displays. You'll be able to remain productive as you work remotely from 9 to 5 without ever stopping to plug in and recharge, or keep yourself entertained throughout an entire coast-to-coast flight without worrying whether you'll make it to the end of your movie.
Housed in premium, black brushed aluminum, the sleek TimelineX 1830 notebook measures just over 1 inch thin--making it extremely easy to carry, maneuver, and store while you're out and about but without sacrificing usability. And with a full-size keyboard for more accurate and comfortable typing and a multi-gesture touchpad for mouse-less, fingertip convenience, this ultraportable notebook functions like a much larger one.
