It is equipped with a capacitive touchscreen display of 11.6 inch LED LCD WXGA, but with an accelerometer that automatically rotates images! Can act as a portable cinema, a photo frame or a tool.
Although we were familiar, from Asus, with this type of product, this model has managed to impress us from the outside in, but also by the ease with which can be used either as a netbook and tablet PC.
At such a hybrid portable, the most important is the display and Acer has paid great attention to the screen installed on the Aspire 1825PT. To show accuracy and ease of touchscreen that can be handled, the manufacturer has not introduced the stylus. We must not push too hard to run different applications, draw, write, etc. Compared to the Asus T101MT, at the chapter touchscreen the model from Acer is better. Before you should use it, it is better to calibrate using the software provided by Acer.
The display is attached to the body netbook with a single hinge, thereby allowing rotation of 180 degrees and fold over the keyboard. Note: rotation is in one sense, it was also marked in the netbook. And because I brought up the keyboard, this is 100% full size, ergonomic, soft touch keys. There aren't very well defined and are more likely without knowing it to press the wrong key, but if you're used to a normal keyboard, then you can type without problems. The touchpad is classic, large enough and responds well to commands.
