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.

  2. I’ll believe it when I see a shipping notice in someone’s hand… I waited for months on the this thing (with a slightly diff model number) to go from pre-order to real orders… then I gave up and bought an Alienware instead… and THAT was a few months ago…

  3. I’m typing this on an Acer 1825ptz – SU4100 processor, 3Gb RAM, 320Gb hard disk, specs otherwise similar to the Acer 1825pt you’re talking about. This machine appears first to have surfaced in Italy, then in Belgium, then in Germany and here in France about a fortnight ago. The product page you reference works, but you still can’t find the 1825pt or ptz from the index pages on the Acer websites (which are country-specific). Instead, a small number of retailers appear to have the machine – I bought mine from LDLC here in France.

    My intended use is for classroom teaching – using the machine as an electronic whiteboard and for preserving and distributing teaching materials that I derive in dynamic interaction with the students in class. The handwriting recognition works and works surprisingly well – but my finger is large and blunt, and a stylus that works with this capactive screen would be really useful.

    I can tell you that this machine cost 599€, that I’ve had it for a fortnight now, and that I like it a lot. The touchscreen is capacitive, which means that it works well with finger contact and not at all with standard styli. I have a stylus designed for an HTC capacitive smartphone (HTC Desire) on order but have not yet received it to test. The machine, subjectively, performs well – I’m using Office 2010 beta, InfoQube, etc. and Dragon Naturally Speaking 10.1 voice recognition runs well. The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium in its 64 bit incarnation. Sketches and handwritten text are handled well by OneNote within my version of Office.

    1. You mean this tablet doesn’t come with a stylus? Seems like a major design oversight. I own an ASUS R1F convertible tablet (now 3.5 years old) and use the touch screen capabilities a lot when I’m in the classroom – I don’t think I could switch to my “fat” fingers very easily… Currently tossing up between the Acer 1825PT and the HP TouchSmart tm2, this one looks better in many ways, but the stylus is high on the list of must-have features 🙁
