Default Acer TimelineX: Thin, Powerful, and Under $1000

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://gizmodo.com/5809410/acer-timelinex-sandy-bridge-performance-for-under-1000/gallery/1' target='_blank'>http://gizmodo.com/5809410/acer-tim...-1000/gallery/1</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"The Acer TimelineX employs a no frills&mdash;but hardly utilitarian&mdash;design that's simple and clean. Combined with a Core i5 Sandy Bridge processor, 13.3-inch display, Nvidia GT 540M graphics and Dolby audio, it's a solid, inch-thick package that only lightens bank accounts by $780."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1307511752.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>At a little over 4-pounds, the 13.3-inch TimelineX is reasonably powerful, well-outfitted, and claims a battery lifecycle of up to 4-years. Oddly enough, a 14-inch and a 15.6-inch model are also available in the series, and both have a starting price lower than the 13.3-inch model, and, include a DVD-RW drive, lacking in the smallest model. Looks like a decent, if undistinguished system, with a lot of competition in this footprint.</p>

I've got my eye on this one - I was interested in the last model, but was waiting until they came out with the Sandy Bridge refresh. This new one could be what I'm looking for...except I sure wish it had a 1400 x 900 screen.
