The beauty of breaking out of the Windows XP mold is saying good-bye to Microsoft's set limitations on Netbook power (most notably, 1GB of RAM). Setting the stage for the fall's next-gen Battle of the Future Netbooks, Acer's as-yet-unofficial (according to Acer) Timeline 1810T has all the trimmings that place it head and shoulders above the currently Atom N270 and N280-dominated crowd. Leaked photos have hit online, and it looks like a fusion between Acer's Aspire One line and its super-slim, recently reviewed Timeline 3810T.
First off, it has a ULV processor that's faster than Atom Netbooks by a fair margin. Then there's the HD video decoding. Also, the 1810T can support up to 4GB of RAM. Other bonuses include HDMI, b/g/n Wi-Fi, and the ability to upgrade to Windows 7 (because it runs Windows Vista Home Premium).
Details revealed so far:1.4GHz Intel ULV SU3500 processor 11.6-inch 1366x768 screen Intel GS45 Express chipset Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics Up to 4GB RAM HDMI Bluetooth 2.1+EDR 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi Optional 3G Eight-hour battery life (similar to the 3810T)
