Acer Aspire Timeline 1825PT tablet-netbook combo

Acer has unleashed the Aspire Timeline 1825PT, which is essentially a cross between a tablet and a netbook.

Which would make it a tabook, possibly, or a netlet. Neither term will be catching on any time soon.

It achieves this “two-in-one” feat by the use of a swivel screen. Swivel the screen up, and it’s an open netbook. Fold the screen over so it’s flat to the base, and it’s a tablet, albeit a rather thicker one than the iPad.

Still, that could have its own advantages. If someone tries to mug you for the crime of possessing ground-breaking technology, it’s all the better to clonk them over the head with.

The spec for the 1825PT is equally chunky, not powered by an Atom, but an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, with up to 4GB of Ram, and an Intel GS45 Express graphics chipset driving the 11.6 inch 1366 x 768 HD display.

The unit will also come with a 250GB hard disk, a webcam, wi-fi, 3G and an HDMI port.

An eight hour battery life is claimed, which again doesn’t quite stack up to the iPad’s ten hours plus.

You can get yourself an Aspire Timeline 1825PT now, with prices starting from £599.
