The system chosen this time is the most radical with a total separation between the screen and the tablet made ​​stand and keyboard. The result is something between the Surface and the Pro ultra portable with a sliding mechanism except that here there’s hinge slide but they are the same as with a display of 11.6″ there is close to zero space for a keyboard and the touchpad totally absent from the handset.

The availability of Aspire P3 even now starts at a cost of $ 799 presumably first on U.S. soil and then in the markets of Asia and Europe.
