New ultra-slim laptop - Acer Aspire S3

Acer's new laptop Aspire S3 is the first in what its producer claims will be a very long going lines of Ultrabooks. What is an Ultrabook? It´s a thin and light-weight laptop computer with extra energy, and also a bigger display, compared to a netbook.

Introduction and Style

The Acer Aspire S3´s major interest is, just |such as its inescapable rival|opponent the Apple Macbook Air, its shape. Similar to a gorgeous type with a mystery stage below her belt, any destroyer elements are always going to be overshadowed by that appearance. But what a appearance it is.

The S3´s framework is created of a magnesium and aluminium combination, supplying the high quality sense of metallic structure |free of putting too much bodyweight. At a shade under 1.4kg, this 13.3in processed machine isn´t much thicker compared to a plastic-bodied 10.1in netbook.

It seems perilously lighting in-hand as well. It doesn´t particularly have the solidity of the new laptop Macbook Air, mostly for the reason that it doesn´t have a unibody design and style, alternatively permitting various seams to present. In the trade-off we moreover get to trend goodbye to the Air´s perilously pointed ends and frightening cost label. Where the entry-level 13in Air prices £1099, Acer´s option will be obtainable from 799 Euro – which normally indicates we´ll possibly finish up spending the similar amount in pounds.

Acer hasn´t unveiled the particular specifications the Great Britan products will characteristic, however all supply an SSD – up to 240GB – with hard drives around 500GB accessible as an suggested extra. The complete roster of current-gen Sandy Bridge processors will be on the list as well, i3, i5 and i7, but carry in head they are the minimal voltage versions created with maximising battery lifetime in thoughts.

Despite the fact that the within the S3 functions the anodized end related to Apple´s aluminium-bodied laptops, the cover has a shinier blown end. It´s all very swish, just disrupted through the darker plastic material strip that varieties component of the laptop´s joint. You can´t have all the things however, and there´s no denying this is a good-looking new laptop.

Interaction normally undergoes in squishing down the Aspire S3´s body – it´s 13mm at its thin leading area, bulking up to a still-svelte 17mm at the rear – however the fundamentals are protected. There are 2 USB 2.0 slots on the rear (no 3.0 slots here, unfortunately), in addition to the full-size HDMI output and energy plug.
