Acer revealed plans to introduce a new ultra-thin notebook series with a thickness of 19mm sometime this year:
Acer is the second largest notebook vendor and it already holds a sizable chunk of the CULV notebook market with its Timeline series. However, although the Timelines are very well priced and feature impressive battery life, they feature a boxy design and at 2.54cm they are a bit on the chunky side.
The new series will apparently be 19mm thick, which would make it thinner than most CULVs, expect a few models, such as Dell's Vostro V13 or some MSI X-Slim models. The new Acer series will be based on Intel's Calpella ULV processors and it should offer superior performance compared to current Timelines, which are powered by 45nm CULV parts.
