Acer officially launches Aspire 1825PT convertible tablet
Acer has been showing off 11.6 inch convertible tablet-style notebooks for months. But the company has finally gotten around to issuing a press release and putting up a product page for the Acer Aspire 1825PT. While it’s not available in the US yet, it looks like you can pre-order the notebook in the UK.
the Acer spire Timeline 1825PT features an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel capacitive multitouch display and Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics. It’s available with either an Intel Pentium dual core SU4100 or Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 CULV processor and supports up to 8GB of DDR3 memory.
The computer has a 5-in-1 card reader, VGA webcam, 3 USB ports, HDMI and VGA output, mic and headphone jacks, and Ethernet as well as 802.11a/b/g WiFi and an optional 3G module. The Acer Aspire 1825PT comes with a 6 cell, 5600 mAh, 62 Whr battery and weighs 3.8 pounds. It measures 11.2″ x 8.2″ x 1.36″. All models ship with Windows 7 Home Premium.
Acer is setting the suggested retail price in the UK at £600 for the Acer Aspire 1825PTZ and £700 for the Aspire 1825PT. While Acer doesn’t spell out the difference, I’m pretty sure the cheaper model will come with the SU4100 processor and less storage and memory.
While the UK price tag seems kind of high, at the equivalent of $886 for the cheap model, I’m holding out hope that the notebook could be a bit cheaper if and when it makes it to US shores.
