Acer Aspire S7 Touch Ultrabook Unveiled

 

Acer just took off the lid of its newest laptop offering, the Acer Aspire S7 Touch Ultrabook.  Compared to current ultrabooks in the market, the Aspire S7 is fresh and class-leading. It appears to be the slimmest ultrabook so far and the design is quite stunning.

The Acer Aspire S7’s distinctive feature is its ultra slim profile.  Acer claims it is as thin as a tablet, and from the looks of it, the claim appears to be valid. The Aspire SA7 has an all-aluminum unibody design, similar perhaps to the unibody design of Apple’s Macbook Air.  In terms of actual measurement, the Aspire S7 is only .47 inch thin and weighs only 2.29 pounds.

There are two display offerings for the Aspire S7.  There’s a 13.3-inch variant and an 11.6-inch version.  They are both packing a full high definition 1920 x 1080 touch screen display  that are made durable by Gorilla Glass 2.   One model tilts back a full 180 degrees, letting users lay it flat on a table to optimize the touch features of Windows 8 on which the device runs.  The S7 also features a light-sensing keyboard that automatically detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the keyboard backlight brightness.

Despite the ultra-thin profile, the Acer Aspire S7 packs a powerful punch. It runs on 3rd Generation Intel Core i5-3317UB or i7-3517U processor and solid state drives for faster performance.  Battery life is 6 hours but there’s an optional second battery that doubles computing time to 12 hours.

The Aspire S7 Series starts at $1,199 for the 11.6-inch model and $1,399 for the 13.3-inch model. The Aspire S7 series will be available for purchase on October 26 in the US.  Availability in other countries including the Philippines should follow afterwards.
