The first impressions of the 11.6-inch Acer Aspire 1820PTZ convertible netbook are starting to roll in. VR-Zone forum user Denosha posted up a mini-review of the upcoming tablet and it seems like it will be worth the wait.
As you would expect, the 1820PTZ feels heavier than a normal netbook/ultra-thin of this size. The display has pressure sensitive finger & stylus support. When using it in pen mode, the display can enable palm rejection. The accelerometer worked well although it does take 1 – 3 seconds to rotate.
Denosha posted three videos of the 1820PTZ in action including a demonstration of its multi-touch capabilities with Microsoft Surface and an inking test in Microsoft Journal. He also posted a video showing the device booting up and how it transforms into a tablet. You can catch all three videos after the break.
The model he tested comes with a dual-core 1.3GHz SU4100 processor, 2GB RAM, 500GB HDD and Windows 7 Home Premium. Other features include Wi-Fi (Draft-N), Bluetooth and a 6-cell 5600mAh battery.
