The Acer Aspire Timeline M3 ultrabook will start shipping by the end of this month, Acer has announced. The M3 is reportedly the first ultrabook to ship with the next-generation NVIDIA GeForce GT640M Kepler graphics.

The Aspire Timeline M3 is a thin and light laptop with Intel’s latest Core i-series processor. While most ultrabooks on the market has 13 or 14 inch displays, the Timeline M3 has a larger 15 inch display. It has also got a built-in DVD drive.

The GeForce GT640M supports the NVIDIA Optimus automatic graphics switching technology. That means you don’t have to reboot the computer to switch between the integrated and discrete graphics options. While performing GPU intensive tasks, the NVIDIA graphics will automatically kick in.

The notebook will reportedly be available in at least two models. While one of them will have an SSD, the other model will sport a large hard drive with a performance enhancing SSD cache.


It looks like Toshiba has quite a few tablets on offer. The company has been showing off several tablets recently and these include the Toshiba Excite X10, a 7 inch Thrive tablet and a 7.7 inch prototype. And now the folks at Notebook Italia have come across yet another 7 inch tablet. This model has a Freescale processor.

The Toshiba LT170 has a 7 inch display with 1024 x 600 pixels. It is powered by a 1GHz
Freescale i.MX53 ARM Cortex A8 processor. The tablet has also got 512MB of RAM and 8GB of storage. It runs the dated Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system which isn’t exactly coded for tablets. Of course, those specs wouldn’t make it a world class product. On the bright side, the Toshiba LT170 comes pre-loaded with Google Android Market which is not something you find on typical Android 2.3 tablets.

The tablet weighs just about 0.86 pounds. In Europe it is expected to retail for around 299 Euros. Of course, it isn’t very cheap but consumer electronics products tend to cost more in Europe.

No word on pricing or availability in other parts of the world.
