Acer Unveils Timeline 1825PT Tablet PC

Acer has rolled out a new convertible tablet PC notebook, the Timeline 1825PT, that's bound to turn heads and as this is not an Aspire model, one can expect a number of interesting features in this tablet/laptop hybrid (or shall we call it a tabtop or a laplet).

The device comes with a rather impressive configuration; an Intel Dual Core ULV SU4100 processor clocked at 1.3GHz with 2MB L2 cache, a 11.6-inch 1366x768 pixel touchscreen, Windows 7 64-bit, 3GB RAM, a 250GB hard disk drive, WiFi and a battery life of up to eight hours.

Graphics wise, the 1825PT has an Intel GS45 Express graphics chipset and a HDMI port. You get an integrated 3G modem on some models and acer is also throwing in a number of touch-optimised applications like a browser and a notepad.

Arguably, this will draw comparisons with the iPad which costs a tad less than the Timeline but is aimed at a completely different audience. The iPad lacks the firepower, the screen size and the keyboard but weighs nearly two thirds less and has a higher battery life.

You can already buy the lower version, the PTz from Simplyacer for £599.97 including free delivery and free BullGuard internet Security.
