The ultra-thin notebook would come in the form of an 11.6-inch convertible touchscreen ultra-portable device and incorporate a 16:9 1366 x 768 multi-touch display. Acer seems to be just waiting for the Windows 7 to arrive, so that it too can hit the mart with this notebook.

Acer is expected to offer an optional integrated 3G too with the device. Weighing just 1.72 kg, size specs read 285 x 208.9 x 28.5-34.5 mm. Feature-packed, the Acer Aspire 1820PT Timeline would boast of connectivity that includes gigabit Ethernet, WiFi a/b/g and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. It also would come with optional UMTS/HSPA. Acer has also thrown in three USB 2.0 ports, both VGA and HDMI. Impressive audio options, a multi-format card reader and a battery that could last for 8 hours are sure to make the notebook a luring product from Acer.

Preloaded touch-friendly apps of the likes of Acer’s own TouchPortal and TouchMemo would make the notebook a must have. The company has said that the screen as well as the trackpad would support multi-touch in Windows 7. And if you are too particular about handwriting recognition, Acer has bundled stylus too with the notebook .

So all you notebook lovers in Europe have to do now is to wait for a week or more. As soon as Windows 7 debuts, Acer too would come luring with this ultra-portable notebook.
