Acer's upcoming Aspire TimelineX 1830T ultra-slim notebook based on the Intel Calpella platform is closer to release with press-images making it to the public domain. The new 11.6 inch notebook uses an Intel Core i5 520UM dual-core processor with integrated graphics, with clock-speed of 1.06 GHz. It is aided by 2 GB of DDR3 memory, and a HDD with over 160 GB of storage. It has a 11.6 inch screen with a resolution of 1366x768 pixels, integrated web-camera, a typically-sized keyboard. Connectivity options include gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth and HSDPA (optional), HDMI display output, and 802.11 b/g/n WiFi. Apart from the usual number of USB ports and audio connectors, the notebook features a multi-format card reader. The Aspire TimelineX 1830T will be released later this month.

Don't know where the mixup was, but that should be Arrandale processor. Capella was the previous gen with 45nm process? At least as far as I understand the Intel website, maybe they have it wrong on there, but I doubt it.

1.06Ghz i5? Wouldn't it be better using a higher clocked i3?

Can turbo up to 1.8something GHz which i3 doesn't do.

Eh, I don't know why I or you would care about HT that much. Most of the performance comes from core #s and GHz correct? Doesn't matter how you divide the work up too much, same amount still needs to be done (I know it helps a little bit).

As far as price it doesn't look ay different in price than any other mobile processor that isn't total suck. You can get some celeron procs for about $100 while these are about $250, but almost any other mobile is also in the $250 range.

HT makes a difference in some situations, some more so than others. As an i7 owner I have come to appreciate the benefits and performance and wouldn't mind seeing that translated to my mobile computer as well.

As far as price, I am looking at the cost of the entire computer, not just the single chip cost (which really only applies to the notebook manufacturer). I doubt that I could go somewhere and pick this CPU up for $241. Even if I could there is most likely a new socket and other components that would need an upgrade. Basically not feasible.

Look at the first picture, those mouse/trackpad buttons are flakey. Not good for a marketing shot!
