Acer cooks up CULV-based convertible tablet
11.6-inch Timeline 1820T
In case you like smudging grease across your screen, Acer has prepared a rather interesting convertible tablet based on its Timeline CULV-book series.
The Timeline 1820T is an 11.6-inch notebook powered by a Core 2 Solo SU3500, much like the plain 1810T. Acer didn't reinvent the Timeline to add a touchscreen, it merely redesigned the back of the chassis and added a rotating screen hinge.
So, the rest of the chassis is pretty much what you'd expect from the 1810T series, no surprises on the exterior or interior. It packs the same hardware and the same port layout.
The big difference is the weight, as the prosthetic hinge added 300g of lard to the weight. There is still no word on a possible launch date or price, but we're guessing it will ship in late October.
