The latest generation of Acer's popular "all day computing" lineup, the 11.6-inch Aspire TimelineX 1830 (model AS1830T-6478) is an ultra-portable powerhouse that weighs just over 3 pounds yet packs in a full-size keyboard and ultra-low voltage Intel Core i3 dual-core processing.
The TimelineX 1830 provides up to 8 hours of battery life thanks to a combination of Intel's Core i3 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.
Burn through the hottest new digital media, content creation and advanced 3D gaming with the breakthrough performance of the ultra-low voltage Intel Core i3 UM processor--with 4-way multitasking processor power to work on four tasks simultaneously. The advanced micro-architecture powers smart performance while you get significantly faster performance by harnessing both speed and efficiency by using less energy.
A Multi-Gesture Touchpad enables you to pinch, flick and swirl your fingers across the touchpad for more natural photo and video viewing as well as intuitive navigation of websites. An integrated Acer Crystal Eye webcam delivers smooth video streaming and high quality images for online chats and business video conferences, even in low-light situations.
The convenient Backup Manager software lets you easily select and protect your irreplaceable digital files through regular scheduled backups or on an as-needed basis. Data can be backed up to an external hard drive, flash drive, thumb drive, or to a secure hidden partition on their PC.
