Acer’s TimelineX line is known for thin designs and impressive battery life -- two characteristics that all of today’s most popular laptops seem to share. This particular model is a 15.6-inch configuration with an Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB RAM -- more than enough power to work through productivity tasks and handle some media editing and gaming. Its 8-hour battery life is enough to last through cross-country and trans-Atlantic flights, so carrying it around campus or on a work trip will be no problem.
