Acer debuts the Aspire Timeline Ultra M3

The new Aspire Timeline Ultra was first unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last January; today Acer showcases the new Aspire M3 of the Timeline Ultra family.

The latest Timeline series is slimmer and lighter than its predecessors (measuring just 20 mm thin), without compromising its state-of-the-art performance. In fact, the new Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 raises the bar by being the first Ultrabook with dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT640M graphics for enhanced content creation and consumption.

The slim design houses powerful all-around performance features. The latest Intel Core processor and superior dedicated graphics ensure fast navigation and multitasking even with graphics-intensive gaming and multimedia apps.

An ample hard disk drive offers plenty of space for large files, and an integrated solid state drive enables instant-on capability. An SSD-only configuration is also available. The highly durable SSD lets users access files faster, run the battery longer, and operate more quietly.

The overall experience is ultra-responsive. Acer Green Instant-On provides fast resume in 1.5 seconds from sleep mode. Likewise, Acer Instant Connect automatically scans and registers most-visited access points, letting users connect to the Internet in just 2.5 seconds, which is four times faster than conventional methods.

The Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 is also the first 15-inch 2-spindle Ultrabook to feature an optical drive for DVD enjoyment. Other entertainment enhancements include Dolby® Home Theater® v4 and premium speakers. The professionally-tuned sound system delivers industry-leading high volume, clear dialogue and sound effects for music, movies and games.

In the Timeline tradition, this Ultrabook features 8 hours of battery life, providing a full day of on-demand multimedia enjoyment and productivity on a single charge.

The ultra-thin profile of the M3 delivers a minimalist, modern look. The stylish black cover is made of an aluminum alloy that adds to the sturdiness. The full-size chiclet keyboard with a numeric keypad makes typing more comfortable and increases productivity.

The Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 will be available in Incredible Connection stores by 29 March 2012. The RRP will be from R7 999.
