Mass market availability is expected to occur in Q2 2012.

At the same time Acer announced an updated Acer Timeline series. The new Aspire Timeline Ultra series arrives with long-lasting batteries (Acer promises up to 8 hours of battery life), discrete graphics cards, the latest Intel Core processors, DVD burners. Also provided is the Acer Green Instant On technology that lets the computer wake up in 1.5 seconds from sleep mode.

The new Timeline series is likely to arrive earlier than the S5 ultrabook – sometime in Q1 2012.
