Taiwanese industry sources report Acer will launch its Intel Calpella based Timeline laptops on March 22. These new Core i3 and Core i5 powered systems will have displays ranging from 13" to 15", the battery life will be around eight hours, the same as the company's current Timeline ultra-thin models.
Although Acer's Calpella Timeline notebooks will be as thick as the Timeline models, they will be slightly heavier due to the cooling modules.
The Calpella Timeline series will feature a 9-cell battery instead of the Timeline's 6-cell battery to enable an eight-hour battery life, the sources noted.
The Calpella Timeline will have three different display sizes: the 13-inch model is made by Wistron, while the 14- and 15-inch models are produced by Quanta Computer.
