Ultrabooks, a new term derived by PC giants such as Hp, Acer, Toshiba and Asus have got much popularity. These are ultra thin laptops with high resolution LEDs, superb power and speed capabilities.
Acer has banged on the Ultrabooks market by introducing the “Thinnest Ultrabook” yet at CES 2012, the Aspire S5.
CES seems to be going from better to great, first the “World’s Thinnest Tablet” by Toshiba, and now the “World’s Thinnest Ultrabook”.
The Aspire S5 measures just 15 millimeters, or 0.59 inches, at its thickest point, beating the Macbook Air which is 0.68 inches thin.
It has a button(which acts as a lever) to open a flip-out panel, where the ports are hidden — a number of useful ports are hidden there such as connectors, including HDMI, USB 3.0 and the Thunderbolt port too, becoming the first ultrabook (beside the Macbook Air) to have a Thunderbolt port. Aspire S5 has a 13-inch screen with a resolution of 1366×768, powered by an Intel Core processor, and an SSD for storage.
Acer has also included a number of its own softwares like Acer Green Instant On, which is said to bring the notebook back from sleep mode in less than 1.5 seconds. ‘Acer Always Connect’ is another promising software that quickly reconnect you with any online services you were logged onto when your computer went to sleep.
The design of this ultrabook is brilliant and sleek and comes in “Onyx black” colour, with detailing in brushed metal making it even more beautiful.
The Aspire S5 is expected to arrive sometime in Spring this year. There is no news on the pricing yet, but be prepared to pay high for this sleek ultrabook. I myself have become a great fan and can’t wait to get my hands on this.
