Australian laptop users should be considering themselves lucky at the moment. You might surely ask why? It is actually because of the fact that they get to pre order the Acer Aspire Timeline 1820PT. The model of was not so recently unveiled by the brand and is an 11.6 inch touch screen laptop. It even swivels and folds down over the keyboard which means that it can be used as a tablet too.

But for those actually thinking about selecting this model, here is a little word of advice. In addition to being a touch screen, the laptop is pretty much the same as the Acer Aspire 1810T. That particular model is already available in the United States. Like the 1810T, 1810PT is a dual-core 1.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300, 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 pixels, GMA X4500MHD graphics, and 802.11g WiFi and Bluetooth. It can indeed be considered to be portable. This touch screen laptop also supports up to 8 GB of memory, and has a320g hard drive. It even posses an HDMI port, and supports an optional 3G wireless system too.

If I actually mention the truth about Australian laptop prices, they are in fact quite high. Nonetheless, right after the North American release, the price of the Acer touch screen laptop Timeline 1820PT did tend to drop down a bit.

Even though touch screen laptop are considered modern gadgets, people like me are not always easily satisfied even by them. The biggest problem with having a touch screen is the amount of battery energy needed to run this thing. Even if the battery will run it, the problem with two screens is that a battery of ordinary capacity would be drained much faster than normal.

I prefer the idea of a touch screen keyboard, but obviously, there are disadvantages such as lack of decent tactile feedback. Many things can change in a few years and if a better system of feedback may be available, then these touch screens should be far more competent. Therefore all I would say is that we can expect far more from such upcoming touch screen laptops.
