Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG Ultrabook Specs Review

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG Ultrabook
Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG Ultrabook presents one of the first Ultrabooks with both dedicated graphics and an integrated DVD drive in the Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 – what a mouthful name! However, the 15-inch device can’t really be called a subnotebook, but rather a thin-and-light multimedia notebook.
Acer offers the M3 in multiple configurations, yet in each case an Intel ULV CPU is present. The Core i3-2367M (1.4 GHz) with a 320 GB HDD, 20 GB SSD cache and integrated graphics make up the entry level configuration for the device. The specs are upgradeable up to a Core i7-2637M, a fast 256 GB SSD and the aforementioned GeForce GT 640M, as in our test device. For this reason, prices can range from a little over 600 Euro to as much as 1200 Euro. The Core-i7 version with a 256 GB SSD is available in Germany as the Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG-72634G25Mnk.
