The new Aspire Timeline Ultra was first unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last January. Aspire Ultra M3 is the first Ultrabook with dedicated graphics and a 15-inch screen. Though this Ultrabook is specially made for the gamer but its sound quality, overall look will surely attract all the people.
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.
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″ 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.
