The Acer Aspire Timeline 1820P was leaked a few weeks back but there has been no official confirmation of its existence. However, it looks like it is on its way as Notebook Italia managed to get some hands-on time with the Aspire 1820PT.
The concept is much the same, the 1820PT is a convertible tablet device with 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) multi-touch display and Windows 7 Home Premium. The specs do seemed to be beefed up, compared to the 1820P.
The Aspire 1820PT ultra-thin is powered by a 1.2GHZ dualSU7300 Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM (max 8GB), either 250GB or 320GB HDD. Other features include Wi-Fi (b/g), Bluetooth 2.1, HDMI, three USB ports & card reader.
The device includes a stylus to navigate the screen and the touchpad also supports multi-touch gestures (as well as the display). Acer quotes battery time to last for 8 hours. The 1820PT is not the lightest device on the market weighing in at 1.72kg. There’s no word on pricing right now, although I would expect the 1820PT to launch within the next few weeks.
