Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook
“Ultrabook” is Intel’s marketing jargon for laptops with ultra-thin, MacBook Air-like designs, and Acer was eager to show off its contribution. The Acer Aspire S3 is a metallic beauty with a 13.3-inch display. The laptop measures roughly a half-inch thick and weighs less 3 pounds in some configurations. When equipped with a 240 GB solid state drive, the Aspire S3 gets up to seven hours of battery life, and it’ll wake from sleep mode in 1.5 seconds, or 6 seconds after more than a half hour of idle time. No U.S. launch details were given, but the S3 is rolling out in Europe starting this month, with a price range of 799 Euros to 1,199 Euros.
