Seems like Acer’s looking to get a jump at the ultrabook segment early, and has officially launched their entry into the market – the Aspire S3. The S3 weighs in at a measly 1.4 kilos and is extremely thin – just 13mm. Usually those dimensions mean a huge compromise in both performance and functionality is called for – not for the S3 though. The notebook packs an Intel Core i5 processor (i5-2467M), a full array of ports (and none of that port replicator nonsense) a large, 13.3-inch screen and 4GB of DDR3 memory.
Probably the only downside of the Aspire S3 is that it packs a 320GB HDD instead of a SSD drive, though there’s an option for customers to have a 20 GB SSD combined with a HDD for faster performance and longer battery life.
Probably the best part of the S3 is the price – it’s tagged with a Php 44,900 price tag, which makes it a direct competitor to Apple’s Macbook Air – which starts at Php 49,990.
