    NVIDIA seems to have scored big design wins with Acer, for its next-generation GPUs. First, we had reports of Acer's VA40 combining Intel "Ivy Bridge" Core processors with NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M, and now Acer Timeline M3-581TG, following the same path. The M3-581TG is a 15.6-inch Ultrabook (one of the first of its kind). Pictures of this model reveal case-badges of its key components, including an NVIDIA GEFORCE GT case-badge, which gives out GPU model (GeForce GT 640M) and memory amount (1 GB). This could very well be the way NVIDIA's GeForce GT family of GPUs will be designated in case-badges.

    Based on the 28 nm GK107 silicon, the GeForce GT 640M packs 384 CUDA cores running at speeds of up to 625 MHz, with 405 MHz base clock, and 910 MHz DDR3 memory, churning up 28.8 GB/s memory bandwidth. Other notable components of the Timeline M3-581TG include Intel Core i7-2637M (1.7 GHz dual-core, 4 MB of L3 cache) processor, 4 GB DDR3-1333 memory, and 256 GB SSD.

    Kinda moot point if its just going to throttle down because Acer is too cheap to put in appropriate cooling.

    seems great, and with i3 for 599bucks its quite okay.
    But WHY are all the vendors using these uber ugly 1366x768 displays?
    800 is too low already. and my old samsung one with single centrino already used 1440x900.
    one has no choice then investing in a full hd 15" :(

    Welcome to 2012.

    But seriously I hope that the retina displays on the iDevices will push for bigger resolutions.
