Thin bezel-clad Laptops are becoming all the rage these days and Acer have stepped up with their interpretation of this efficient use of display space with the new TravelMate Timeline 8481T Business Notebook. This reduced bezel design, thanks to LG’s Shuriken Technology allows for a 14-inch display to fit neatly into the form factor of a traditional 13.3-inch chassis, while still offering a modest resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The feature packed laptops offers an Intel Core i5 CPU, up to 8GB of RAM and Intel HD 3000 graphics. Additionally Intel’s WiDi technology allows for wireless display output.
Other noteworthy hardware specs include USB 3.0, a HD webcam, Long life batteries boasting 13-hours of continuous runtime on a single charge and hard drives with Disk Anti-Shock Protection. As one would expect from a business savvy notebook Acer have bundled a number of security orientated features for added peace of mind in what the company refers to as “Enterprise-Class Security and Manageability”. In layman’s terms this means Fingerprint Protection and a Trusted Platform Module with Data Encryption Technology. Your OS needs are provided for by Windows 7 Professional with 32 or 64-bit editions available. At just 0.87-inches in thickness and 3.7 pounds in weight it’s a fully loaded business PC in a neat and tidy package. The TravelMate Timeline 8481T is due to launch in Canada and the US for $999.
