The new TravelMate Timeline series notebooks are housed in a resilient Magnesium-Aluminum case that evenly divides external forces and can withstand extreme pressure. The notebooks feature Acer DustDefender technology, which prevents the build-up of dust inside the system, by using a smart reversing in the cooling fan (to push the dust out).

The Acer FineTouch keyboard has scratch-resistant coating to withstand usage and improve durability.
