Earlier this month during Computex, Acer took the wraps off their Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 laptops. Unfortunately at that time, there was no word on whether these ultrabooks would be making their way stateside, but the good news is that Acer has since announced that the M5 ultrabooks will be making their way stateside by the end of June. So what can users expect from these laptops? For starters they will be available in either 14” or 15” displays and will support resolutions of up to 1366×768.
The base configuration features a second-gen Intel processor (Sandy Bridge) clocked at 1.5GHz, although higher-end configurations will come with a 2.6GHz clocked Ivy Bridge processor instead. They will also feature a 500GB HDD and a 20GB SSD which we’re assuming is used for booting purposes. The 14” model with Intel HD 4000 graphics will be priced at $680 while the model with an NVIDIA GeForce GT640M will come priced at $780 instead. The 15” model will also feature the same specs but will sport an edge-to-edge display instead and will come priced at $830. So, any takers?
