Acer Timeline Ultra M5 ultrabooks with Nvidia graphics arriving this month

Last seen at CES (and in our office), Acer's 14- and 15-inch ultrabooks are more like full-fledged laptops: DVD drives, Nvidia graphics, and third-gen Intel processors.


How big can an ultrabook be before it stops seeming like one? Back at CES, the Acer Timeline Ultra M3 looked like a lot of other Acer Timelines: thin and full-featured, but not particularly "ultrabooky."

A few months later, we got some in-depth hands-on time with the Acer Timeline Ultra M3-581TG, featuring impressive Nvidia graphics and last-gen Intel processors. It turns out that that M3 won't see the light of day in the U.S., but its successor -- the Timeline Ultra M5 -- will, and it'll be available to order by the end of June.

Read our first take of the Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5.
