The Acer Aspire 1820PTZ is one of three models from Acer which are very near identical, and it can be hard to spot the difference between all three.
The Acer 1820PTZ is a convertible tablet netbook looks identical to the 1820PT model, expect it features the Intel Dual Core processor in place of the “Intel Core 2 Duo”.
Why they have a used a whole new model name for a different CPU I don’t know. Just like all the other models, the 1820PTZ can be used as a normal netbook, or you can rotate the screen arround and lay it down on the keyboard, enabling use as a multi-touch tablet.
It has a 11.6-inch multi-touch display, Intel 1.3GHz SU4100 processor, 3GB of RAM, WiFi and a 160GB hard drive. It also comes with Windows 7 Home Professional 64-bit, and has a quoted 8 hour battery life.
The Acer Aspire Timeline 1820PTZ is currently available for pre-order in the UK from Play.Com for £529 (Saving £80). But it’s a much longer pre-order than normal, and won’t be released until 25th January 2010.
