    News has released today of the new Acer 11.6" Timeline 1810T using a similar Chassis as the 751.
    http://macles.blogspot.com/2009/07/acer ... 1810t.html
    Maybe it's the color they chose for the press release photos, but I still think the 751 design looks better.
    Will you sell your 751 and upgrade to this?

    Very interesting hardware! But this is a fake-picture, the body is much bigger (above the keyboard) but it has the same screen as your 751. Doesn´t match together :?

    We´ll have to wait for more preview to judge this thing. With the given hardware, i expect to cost 100€ more than an 751 :oops: But getting a faster CPU seems to be the best solution for netbooks, even the mighty nVidia ION cannot help out. Here is a new review: http://portablemonkey.com/article/acer- ... ideo-test/

    I have a 13in Timeline 3810T.... the Timeline series have aluminum tops and comes only in 1 color, silver. Obviously the picture may be an 11in Aspire One. As ACER would not veer off of the Timeline design of w/c all 3 models look alike... the 13 14 & 15inch models of the Timeline series look the same.

    Well, if those are real photos (which is questionable), it looks like they've added a little bit of width above the keyboard to hopefully accommodate an integrated 6-cell battery. I really like the sleek design of my 3-cell AAO 751. However, if I could keep relatively sleek lines AND get twice the battery life, that would be the best of both worlds.

    Check out the second photo (click to enlarge it). You will see the extra space above the keyboard.

    Oh hell yes. If the price turns out to be right, this is the one that'll make me upgrade from my 8.9" One.

    From the Quick Start Guide, it look's very similar to the Gateway LT3103u being sold at BestBuy (which is no longer listed on the BestBuy website...)

    the specs listed do not in any way meet the microsoft or intel spec. required for a netbook.
    if this is indeed true it will be a much more expensive laptop, not a netbook, similar to the new hp 12" or the many other 12" notebooks on the market.

    It's in the same way no netbook like the 751h is no netbook if you ask MS/Intel ;)

    Intel lowered the price of CULV chips and increased the n270's price, which costs the same as the n280 now. 11" is the smallest formfactor to get the low CULV price.

    The new MSI Wind U200(12") will be 629€, the Acer Aspire Timeline 1810t(11.6") will be 499€ starting price. There is also a ION on the way for 499€(11.6") from Samsung(too weak because of an n280 if you ask me).

    So at around 12" the "next gen. CULV-netbook" battle will continue. Atom n2x0 is a dead end.

    Comparing U200 and 1810t prices it feels like the 1810t could become in the CULV segment what the AOA1x0 was in the n2x0 segment.

    the u200 has a 1.3ghz cpu
    the first ions all seem to be destops. they improve on the graphics capabilities but I will be interested in performance figures when they are out
    the acer 1810t has a 1.4ghz cpu

    it remains to be seen if the speed is any faster then the z5x0/n2x0 range. the main thing seems that intel now allows 4gb under the netbook spec. for these cpus.

    The Samsung n510 will be even slower than the ION Nettops because of its single core n280. I've checked some benchmarks of dual core n330 plus ION. There is not much left of power the geforce 9400 delivers on desktops/real notebooks.

    The SU3500 in the 1810t is MUCH faster than current Atom z5x0/n2x0 and the 4500MHD iGP is also a big improvement over the GMA950/500. Just check some 3810t reviews for details. There are detailed instructions an a Chinese board on how to enable 4500MHD hardware acceleration of HD movies in Vista and Win7.

    Edit:

    The 1810T is a fine piece of Hardware, imho the best Netbook avalible. If you can return your 751 and are willing to pay 100€ (at least in germany) more, than you should change to the 1810T.

    @Mali:

    i also searched a bit about 3D-Performance of upcoming Netbooks. But they are all crappy :( Even a ION + DualCore Atom will preform very bad. Here are some numbers from 3Dmark 2006:

    C2D MacBookPro + 9600m = 6077 *
    C2D ULV SU9400 + ATI 4330 = 2694
    C2D MacBookPro + 9400m = 2207
    Atom 330 (dual-core) + ION = 1410
    Atom 230 (singlel-core) + ION = 1291
    Core 2 Solo SU3500 + GMA4500 (Acer Timeline) = 582
    Atom 270 + GMA950 = 91
    Atom Z520 + GMA500 = 79

    beside my 751 i use a MacBook Pro with a 8600M GT and its own DDR3 memory. I get about 4200 3Dmarks06 with that machine. You cant play even older 3D Games like Doom3 in full details or resolution, but its "okay". I´m still hoping my MPB will be enough for games like Starcraft 2 or Diablo 3.
    With a score of about 1400 3Dmarks there is now way you will be happy with your 3D performance.

    I agree, for serious gaming those new devices aren't suitable, but for older titles they could be enough.
    I really dislike 3D Mark as a benchmark, because you can't say: "this game will be playable, but this one will be too choppy"
    I expect Source games to run ok on ION and CULV/4500MHD. At least it will be a big step up from my trusty AOA110 :)

    All in all I'm pretty excited about those new devices that pack so much power in 8h and 1.4kg at nebook prices :mrgreen:
    It's no wonder that Sony has discontinued its Vaio TT ;)

    Hi mali, i also agree that 3Dmark is not the best Benchmark. But its the only one from what i have actual numbers to compare.

    Here a bit more:

    Doom 3, Timedemo1 @ 640x480:
    Acer 1810T (GMA 4500): 13 FPS (medium)
    Samsung 510 (ION): 18 FPS (ultra-low)

    mali, are you also around netbooknews.de ?

    Greetings,
    Felix

    :lol: I was just about to post the Doom 3 benchmark results Jörg posted, too.
    Yep, I'm around there, too :)

    So there isn't much left of the 80+ fps the Geforce 9400 pulls on a real PC.
    I think it could be possible to achieve some more on both 1810t and N510.
    The 4500MHD is very sensitive to RAM bandwith, dual channel will help a lot as some benchmarks of x3100 show.
    Overclocking Atom would help a lot with ION performance. I expect a linear percental improvement.

    Edit:
    So now we have a perfect example why 3D Mark sucks.
    Jörg gets 3284 @1024x768 in 2001
    su3500+4500MHD gets 4089 @1024x768 (Acer 3810t)
    Yet the n510 is faster in Doom 3
