Acer made something of a splash when it trotted out its Timeline Ultra series of Ultrabooks at CES; those waves are just now hitting the shore with a full-on release in the UK under a tweaked Aspire M5 name. Both the 14- and 15-inch models are now known to be packing Intel’s Ivy Bridge-era third-generation Core processors, and the “dedicated” video we heard about in January is NVIDIA’s Kepler-based GeForce GT 640M, which we saw in the Timeline Ultra M3. Either new PC is still under 20mm (0.8 inches) thick with the option of an SSD, like the M3, but slapping the M5 badge on top means a much narrower display bezel, a backlit keyboard and other more upscale touches that show where your money’s going. Picking the 15-inch model adds an optical drive along with a keypad for number-crunching. Mum’s the word on exact specs and that all-important pricing, but those questions will be answered by the time the M5 hits British shops in mid-June. Now all that’s left is to know when the new Aspire reaches the other side of the Atlantic.
