It's not a true tablet and it definitely isn't a smartphone. The Acer Aspire Timeline is yet another model of tablet notebook. These machines may soon be a dying breed, if true tablets manage to start capturing a larger and larger share of the market. While touchscreen notebooks are neat, they lack many of the advantages of a tablet, while still posessing all the weaknesses of a notebook.

The Timeline runs Acer's TouchPortal custom interface. There is a video of the UI in use (via Netbooked), but I'm not convinced that TouchPortal will be any more useful than Windows 7.

The 1820P sports an 11.6” multi-touch screen, Core 2 Duo SU7300 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 320 GB HDD, GMA 4500M HD graphics, a .3 MP webcam, b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, HDMI out, and Gigabit LAN. The Timeline seems like a pretty solid netbook. But will that be enough to keep it afloat in a world of iPads and Slates?
