Thin is in. Apple started it with its MacBook Air and now everyone including Acer is jumping in with their ultra-thin (and sexy) models. The Aspire Timeline 3810T from Acer is a 13.3″ notebook PC with a LED backlight, a 1366 x 768 pixel format, LED backlit keyboard that is just 23.4mm (0.92″) thick. And slightly thicker towards the back. The MacBook Air is quite a bit thinner. The 13.3″ notebook weighs just 3.5lbs. Again the Air is lighter by 0.5lbs. But the 3810T has go a whole bunch of ports: HDMI, VGA, Gigabit Ethernet, three USB. The Air doesn’t even come close. Interesting features and more pictures after the jump.
Laminar Wall Jet According to Acer the Laminar Wall Jet cooling technology redirects cooling air along the bottom side of the notebook. The effect? The Timeline is lighter, more efficient, longer lasting, a lot cooler and less harmful to the environment. That’s quite a bit going for it.
Multitouch Trackpad The trackpad is capable of recognizing gestures. For instance, a simple circular finger-swirl motion will scroll up or down. Pinching works too for zooming in and out. A two-finger swipe lets you flip through photos.
PowerSmart There is a button at the top of the keyboard that allows you to switch from extend-battery-life mode and full-power. Just push the PowerSmart button to toggle between the two. Pretty smart.
