I don't like the style: corners are over rounded and keyboard keys are huge. Steve Jobs won't have allowed such a design to go into production. It does have a very good thing though: no cheap-looking glossy plastics that are almost in each and every laptop in the past 10 years, even though almost each and every user have been complaining about that since the very first day. Another disgusting stuff that took 10 years to get rid of is Macromedia/Adobe Flash that ruined WWW entirely. For two things, I thank Steve Jobs, the other is touchscreen done right.
The Acer Timeline U looks more attractive to me. For the last three years, my son has been using an initial Timeline. If this U is anything like that, it is the one for students. Note it has lit keyboard!
