Ultrabook is the term for the latest generation laptops using efficient Intel processors. Until now only smaller models were available, equipped with an 11.6-inch, 13-inch or 14-inch screens. Now the first larger Ultrabooks are beginning to emerge, such as the Acer Aspire TimelineU M3 that we are reviewing here.
It sounds like the perfect combination, an Ultrabook with a 15.6-inch display. It's light, relatively fast and has a nice, large screen. We would have loved to see a higher resolution, but the Acer Aspire TimelineU M3 comes with the standard 1366x768 pixel resolution. It's available from around £480, but the version we are reviewing here costs about £740. Our test sample is more powerful than the standard version and also has a 128 GB SSD.
