Acer ready new green-friendly, Greenpeace-approved Timeline range

Energy & Efficiency, Laptops / Notebooks, Tech Digest news

Acer’s new Timeline range of laptops are so green-friendly that even Greenpeace have given the gear their thumbs up.

The Aspire 3811TZ and 3811TZG are both made without the use of PVC and BFRs (brominated flame retardants), making them much easier to break down and safely dispose of.

Boasting a 40% reduction in power consumption, battery life is extended through the use of LED-backlit screens and Intel ULV Core 2 Duo processors.

Acer also assure owners that the new range will be fully recyclable, though we wouldn’t recommend leaving these in the recycling box for the council to dispose of.

Apart from an eight-hour battery life, there’s little known so far in terms of specs on the new Acer laptops. Be sure to keep checking back to Tech Digest for more info on the Timeline range as we get the details.
