Acer Aspire Timeline 1820p multitouch Windows 7 tablet leaks

If Acer's Aspire 1410T (aka the Timeline 1810T) took your fancy but you're a multitouch convert, how about a convertible tablet version of the same ultraportable notebook?  macles have spotted the Acer Aspire Timeline 1820T, ostensibly the same 11.6-inch 1,366 x 768 notebook with an Intel CULV 1.4GHz Core 2 Solo SU3500 processor and 2GB of RAM, but gaining a rotating screen hinge and a multitouch-capable touchscreen.

The internal specifications, casing design - hinge apart - and ports are all said to be the same as the 1480T/1810T, so the only difference here is Windows 7 and the finger-friendly display.  By giving the screen its swivelling skills, Acer have added 300g to the ultraportable's weight.

No word on launch date, pricing or anything else, but we'd assume this is the tipped multitouch notebook industry sources in Taiwan were muttering about back in June.  Hopefully we'll see it land shortly after Windows 7 itself gets its official launch on October 22nd.
