Overview
  • 1Description

The Aspire TimelineU M5-581T-6490-US 15.6" Ultrabook Computer from Acer is the 4th generation of the Aspire Timeline Series and it joins the Acer Ultrabook family. With a super slim profile of 0.81", a weight of just over 5 pounds and up to 8 hours of battery life, this ASUS Ultrabook was built for ultimate mobility.

The 15.6" HD CineCrystal display on this Acer Ultrabook has a 1366 x 768 native resolution and a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio. The screen is also backlit with LED lamps, which brighten faster, use less power and are more energy efficient than their CCFL counterparts. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 can dedicate 128MB of the system memory for graphical use, such as Microsoft DirectX 11 support.

The system is powered by a dual-core Ivy Bridge 1.7GHz Intel Core i5-3317U processor. It also has 6GB of DDR3 RAM (2GB onboard and a 4GB RAM module), 520GB of hard drive storage (500GB 5400rpm hard drive and a 20GB solid state drive), a SuperMulti DVD burner, 2-in-1 media card reader, an integrated webcam and microphone. There are also built-in Acer 3DSonic stereo speakers. Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) is the installed operating system.

Dual-Core Ivy Bridge Intel Core i5 Performance
Just because this Acer Ultrabook is small and compact doesn't mean it lacks a punch. It houses an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i5-3317U processor. Its dual cores can reach a speed of 1.7GHz. The processor can also be overclocked up to 2.6GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated 3MB L3 cache, 6GB of DDR3 RAM and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, this Acer Ultrabook provides a smooth and seamless multitasking experience
Portable Home Theater
Experience your movies, music and photos in high-definition image quality, brilliant colors and stunning life-like visuals with integrated Inte HD Graphics 4000. It also dedicates 128MB of the Acer Ultrabook's system memory for more graphics-intensive applications, such as PC gaming. A high-definition movie would not be complete with vibrant high quality audio powered by Dolby Home Theater v4. Enjoy powerful beats and smooth melodies over the integrated Acer 3DSonic stereo speakers, headphones or home theater system
A Display of Excellence
This Acer Ultrabook has a 15.6" HD CineCrystal display with edge to edge glass. It has LED backlighting for faster brightening and lower power consumption. If the 1366 x 768 native resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio are not cutting it for you while at home, the built-in HDMI port make it easy to connect to a larger external display, such as a HD monitor or a HDTV (HDMI cable sold separately)
Elegant Mobility
This Acer Ultrabook elevates portability to the next level. Measuring only 0.81" thin and weighing in at just over 5 pounds, this Acer Ultrabook can be placed in a backpack or tote bag without adding any bulk. Take it to the office or your favorite coffee shop without breaking a sweat. The pure, uncluttered design not only looks good, but enhances your everyday computing experience
Instant Startup
Acer Green Instant On resumes your computing session in less than 2 seconds and from deep sleep in 6 seconds, thanks to the 20GB solid state drive. Solid state drives save data to non-volatile memory microchips and don't have moving parts like the spinning disks or the movable read/write heads of older hard disk drives. The solid state drive allows you to turn your Acer Ultrabook instantly to access your websites, emails or documents just the way you left them so you can save time and increase productivity
Constant Connectivity
Stay connected with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. Acer Always Connect gets you to the web in about 2.5 seconds. The integrated 1.3 megapixel HD webcam allows you to video chat with 24 frames per second (fps) while the built-in microphone captures your voice with clear precision. This Acer Ultrabook also has Bluetooth 4.0 technology so you can connect all your peripherals with ease. Acer Green Instant Connect reconnects you to the Internet 4 times faster than comparable notebooks normally would. This Acer Ultrabook remembers previous Wi-Fi spots you've used so that when they're in range, it automatically connects you without the hassle of having to reenter WEP passwords
Intel Anti-Theft Technology
Intel Anti-Theft Technology helps protect your data by allowing you to disable your lost or stolen Ultrabook remotely from anywhere in the world
