Acer Aspire Timeline 1810T rebranded ‘Aspire 1410’ in US/Canadian markets

August 13, 2009 at 1:15 pm

Acer Aspire 1410It appears that Acer’s 11.6-inch CULV-powered ultra-thin, the Aspire Timeline 1810T will be rebranded in the US/Canada. The model will be known as the Aspire 1410 in certain markets and is listed as such on the Acer US site. It is also available to pre-order at both OfficeNation and CDW for between $465 – $475.

The model was first brought to our attention by reader Koolshen, who spotted it listed on the Acer Germany site. Confusingly, the Aspire 1410 is still listed on the German site, despite the fact that the support pages list the Timeline 1810T. It is unknown whether Acer will adopt the new name at this late stage, however most European pre-order pages we’ve come across still list it as the 1810T.

The Aspire 1410 (Timeline 1810T) has an 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) LED backlit display. It comes with a 1.4GHz Intel ULV SU3500 processor, GMA 4500MHD graphics and supports up to 4GB RAM. The base model will come with a 250GB HDD.

Thanks Denny!

    There are a few things I would like to get confirmed about the 1410 if possible:
    1) The battery life is rated at 6 hours instead of 8 hours on the 1810T. Is Acer shipping this with a smaller 6 cell battery than the 1810T has? Liliputing quotes this as a 4400mAh, 47.5WHr battery.
    2) Does the 1410 have Bluetooth? Both the spces on J&R + the Acer US site fail to mention Bluetooth.
    3) Is this really the SU3500 single core processor? There has been quite a bit of speculation about this with the J&R site even calling this a Celeron which implies the 723.

    If any of the above turn out to be true I may reconsider my purchase or see if I can get this overseas. I want a big 8 hour battery to replace my Asus 1000HE and won’t settle for less. Bluetooth is also a big deal as is the SU3500. If Acer dumbed the 1410 down to keep it under $500 US I will probably pass. I would glady pay $550 for a larger battery and Bluetooth if I had to but probably WON’T but if for $500 without these things. I guess I’ll have to wait to see what both Samsung and Dell do next since I am also excited about the N510 and a possible ULV Dell.

    If the price is under $500, this is a dreamy netbook, and I will be buying one. I can’t get past the 950GMA in regular netbooks, but this is acceptable. These are PERFECT specs for a netbook imho.

    this is not the 1810t, it is a low budget version. it doesnt say su3500 anywhere on the german acer site, it says celeron. but I find it confusing why the 1810t isnt listed yet.

    From what I’ve seen it has the same processor as the 1810T. The official product page on the US site (linked in the article) says it has a ‘Intel Core2 Solo Processor SU3500’.

    If the 1410 really is a budget version, I’m struggling to tell what the difference might be.

    I’m with Denny-The options that peaked my interest were the bluetooth, the processor, and the 8-hour battery. If the US version is EXACTLY like the original listing of the 1810T, then I’m in-but if it’s not, I’ll just wait and see what the competition comes up with.

    It has the SU3500 processor with an estimated 6 hour battery life. It does not have bluetooth but this can be added for less than 5 bucks.

    It can be preordered from for 449 – 10% bing cashback, making the final total around 405.00. Not a bad price at all…

    @ Denny

    I’ve been snooping around and this is what I’ve gathered, take from it what you will:

    1) The battery on the 1410 is indeed the 4400 (6hr) battery, not the 6500 (8hr) battery that accompanies the 1810T
    2) Someone posted a Acer tech response email regarding bluetooth: the 1410 does not include it, they recommend a dongle that will occupy 1 of 3 USB ports.
    3) The 1410 does indeed have the same processor as the 1810T (SU3500)
    Go here for benchmark comparisons of CPUs:

    Currently with bing CB you can get this model @ J&R elec for $405 otd., if that changes your decision at all.

    Why would they skimp on the battery, that was why I wanted to buy this unit!

    I wish they’d include the bluetooth-I’d rather have all three USB ports available instead of having to tie one up with a dongle.

    The Difference with acer timeline 1810 at asia region? it got here at cost $690
    for each of it. to much difference that i can’t imagine if it’s true like here :

    # Intel Core 2 Solo Processor ULV SU3500, 1.40 GHz
    # 3M L2 Cache, 800MHz Front Bus Speed
    # 2048MB DDR2 667MHz RAM (2 DDR slots, 1 available, 4GB max)
    # 250GB (5400 RPM) SATA Hard Drive
    # 11.6″ HD WXGA CrystalBrite LED-backlit Display (1366 x 768), 16:9 aspect ratio
    # Integrated Crystal Eye Webcam
    # Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD
    # High Definition Audio Support
    # Built-in Stereo Speakers
    # Intel WiFi Link 5100 802.11a/b/g/Draft-N Wireless
    # 10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN
    # Multi-in-1 Card Reader SD, MMC, MS, MS Pro, xD
    # Multi-gesture Touchpad supporting circular-motion scrolling, pinch-action Zoom and page flip
    # Ports: 3 x USB 2.0, Headphone/Speaker/Line-Out, Microphone-in, VGA, HDMI, RJ-45 (LAN)
    # Approximate Unit Dimensions: 11.22″ (W) x 8.03″ (D) x 0.87-1.18″ (H)
    # Approximate Unit Weight: 3.08 Pounds

    the difference is only :
    *) get 1 external dvdrw which cost less than $90
    *) 4gb ram instead of 2gb
    *) 8-Cell instead of 6-Cell

    the difference is $690-$449 which $240
    unfair T_T

    I’ve just bought one (in red) last week…..same spec are listed by Anton above. it is 3GB ram in Canada…! Good sound, display and cute, battery can stand upto 5 – 6 hrs (depend on how you use it). I am waiting for the Window 7 upgrade in October. Hopefully, it can improve this “little” laptop some performances.

    I purchased the 1410 last week from J&R. From a performance standpoint it is definitely a step up from my Samsung NC10. Larger screen really makes a big difference as well. No more hidden buttons at the bottom of a window I have to tab to. I Installed Win7 Ultimate and with 2gb ram it loads to log in screen in ~40s
    Wireless is much better than my NC10.
    The things that are a let down:
    The build quality (NC10 just feels better
    Keyboard: Jury is still out on the Chiclets keys, and it is a little spongy in the middle
    Glossy Screen a mixed blessing. Nice indoors but a pain when the sun is out.
    No Blue-tooth (whats with that?)
    Cheesy Power cord.

    My perceived value is this should sell for ~$379-$399
    Next year when these things are selling for sub $300 with this kind of speed they will fly off the shelf.
    This is what a netbook should have been all along. Now if they can just get it to the 751 series price point we will really have something.
