The 1830T differs from its predecessors (1410 or 1810T) by offering the Intel Core i5-520UM dual-core processor that has a 1.06GHz clock speed. The processor benefits from Turbo Boost technology, which means the clock speed can increase to 1.86GHz depending on usage. This new generation of Intel processors enables good performance without sacrificing battery life.
The 1830T features a chiclet keyboard, an invisible touchpad with two separate faux-chrome mouse buttons at the bottom. It appears to have a textured lid and looks elegant overall. It will come with an unspecified Intel GMA graphics core that has a dynamic clockspeed of between 166MHz and 500MHz, along with the Mobile Intel HM55 chipset.
Other features include HDMI, two RAM slots, Wi-Fi (b/g/n), three USB ports, card reader, Windows 7 and an 8-hour battery life. Availability and pricing details for the Aspire TimelineX 1830T is expected at the end of March, along with new notebooks in the TimelineX range.
