When will Acer’s Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 be released?
The new Acer's Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 laptops are no longer a mystery. They've already been announced for the UK. But there is no word on the launch in the US. Till now I haven't had the chance to handle one in person. Luckily both 14" and 15" new M5 is on display at he Computex, right alongside the similar M3 Ultrabook we reviewed earlier this year.
Like the M3, the M5 pack NVIDIA's Kepler based GeForce GT640M graphics and can be configured with solid-state drives, .
but the M5's design is decidedly more polished, with a brushed metal finish, narrower bezels and backlit keyboard. Nonetheless, some things haven't changed: the keyboard layout is the same, as is the 1366 x 768 TN display and thin chassis, which measures around 20mm thick. No word on availability beyond what we already know, but for now enjoy the hands-on photos
