Acer Philippines Released the Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook

Aspire S3 Ultrabook

Acer Philippines announced yesterday the new Aspire S3 Ultrabook, the first time I saw the photos I remember Apple’s MacBook air. It really looks like one but its an Acer so the price is better than the competitor starting at Php44,000 cheap right?. Meanwhile check out the features.

Acer introduces the Aspire S3 — a sleek yet ultra-fast and robust notebook that breaks technological barriers and sets new standards in performance and design to change the way you enjoy life on the move.

Viewed from any angle, the Aspire S3 is super slender. At its thinnest point, it’s just 13 mm (0.51″) slim. Revolutionary display technology integrates the 13.3″ frame, cutting the bezel thickness by a third and giving you the perfect slice of life.

The smooth aluminum/Mg-Al cover with hairline finish gives the Aspire S3 a sleek look and feel; makes the notebook almost as light as a feather, at under 1.4 kg (3 lbs.);1 and also protects the LCD. The metallic silver-gray color, tastefully positioned ports, and neat operation area portray a minimalist yet elegant tone. Gorgeous, light and durable, the Aspire S3 is a pleasure to carry anywhere.

Hate to wait? So do we, that’s why we designed the Aspire S3 to be swift.

• Acer Green Instant On
Acer Green Instant On eliminates time wasted shutting down and restarting. Put the Aspire S3 to sleep, and spring it back to life within less than 2 seconds! After 75 minutes in Sleep mode, or after the inactive period you set, the notebook enters Deep Sleep, conserving battery life for up to 50 days1, 2… yet when you come back, it turns right on! The Aspire S3 stores your recently used applications and data in flash memory, so when the notebook wakes up, everything looks exactly as you left it.

• Acer Instant Connect
Say goodbye to long connection times! The Aspire S3 remembers your favorite access points and reconnects to them instantly, so you can get on the Internet in just 2.5 seconds — 4X faster1, 2 than notebooks without Acer Instant Connect technology. Whether you’re at home, at work or in one of your favorite hangouts, you can start browsing, messaging and enjoying your online life in a heartbeat.
