Acer Aspire S3
The Aspire S3 has a 13.3-inch 1366 x 768 display, measures 0.51-inches thick, runs the new crop of Core i3 / i5 / i7 ULV chips, and promises roughly seven hours of battery life in the SSD configuration.
There’s an aluminum / magnesium alloy chassis, with cooling designed to send heat away from the palm rest and trackpad — and your, erm, “lap top.” Acer also promises 1.5 second “instant on” from sleep, and 2.5 second “instant connect” to the internet, using special sauce Acer techniques. There’s also a “deep sleep” mode that can stretch for 50 days before you need a charge. The new laptop has a 13.3 ultra-thin high definition LED screen and runs on the Windows 7 operating system. Acer has provided the users with a choice of processor
An important part of any ultrabook is size and weight. The Aspire S3 weighs 1.3 kilograms and measures 17 millimeters at its thickest point. Those numbers should ring a bell for owners of the MacBook Air, which on some models has a 13.3-inch display, is 17 millimeters thick and weighs 1.35 kilograms.
It is equipped with a full-size Acer FineTip chiclet keyboard and features a lightweight aluminium/magnesium alloy chassis with a lid that has a fingerprint-free metal finish.
Overall the design is very clean and premium — a laptop not to be embarrassed by.
Aspire S3 will be priced between Euro 799 to Euro 1199.
