NewEgg has the Acer Timeline AS3810TZ-4078 Ultra-Portable Laptop w/ 13.3" LED Screen and 8-Hour Battery for $550 shipped. The low-voltage ultra-portable laptop is a hybrid between a netbook and a laptop, it combines the best features of both: the power of a laptop with the portability of a netbook. And at a price-tag of only $550, it's surprisingly inexpensive.
The tech specs of the laptop are listed below:
- Intel Pentium Dual Core Low Voltage SU4100 (1.3GHz)
- 4GB DDR3 Memory
- 500GB 5400 RPM SATA2 Hard Drive
- Intel GMA 4500MHD Integrated Graphics Card w/ HDMI Out
- Gigabit LAN and 802.11 B/G/N Wireless
- 13.3" LED-Backlit LCD Screen w/ 1366x768 Resolution
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
- 6-Cell Li Ion Battery (up to 8 Hours)
- Weight: 3.5 lb
One thing to notice about the laptop is that, like most netbooks, it does not include an optical (CD/DVD) drive. Ultra-Portable laptops are very energy efficient and due to their low-voltage processors and LED-backlit LCD displays, they also run noticeably cooler and much longer (8 hours) than most traditional laptops. While not as powerful as most laptops that retail at this price-point, this ultra-portable's configuration should have more than enough power for the average person's computing needs.
