The Acer Timeline strikes a balance between computer lightness and battery life. This new product range offers a number of features that contribute to saving energy and provides more scope for additional performance.
Long Lasting Battery Life The ultra thin notebook series provide eight-hour battery life. In addition the user can change the settings with the Smart Power Key to further enhance battery life with a boost of power saving capabilities.
Acer Comfy Touch Technology In collaboration with Intel – Laminar Wall Jet Technology Acer developed a cooling technology to keep the temperature of the machine close to 6 degrees lower than the user’s skin temperature. This technology exploits the same technology that has been used successfully in cooling turbine blades. Through the addition of louvers to the intel vents, the cooling airflow is redirected along the bottom side of the notebook chassis, putting fresh air precisely where it is needed to better cool the skin.
Lightweight Despite the added advantage of longer battery life the Aspire Timeline remains 24mm (less than one inch) at its thinnest point. It is not only ultra thin but also featherweight. Aided by the aluminum cover the weight range remains 1.6 kg for the 13. 3 model up to just 1.9 kg for the 14.
Energy efficiency Energy efficiency is another key feature of the Aspire Timeline. It complies with the Energy Star 5.0 prerequisites, with the notebook performing efficiently even when using the power adapter. Further the timeline consumes 66% less energy than required by Energy Star. An added advantage is that the Power Smart adapter enters adaptive charging mode automatically when the battery is fully charged. Thus saving energy and reducing the tear and wear on the battery.
