Acer Philippines Unveils the Aspire S3 Ultrabook

Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook

MANILA, PHILIPPINES - It’s slim, it’s sleek, it’s lightweight, and evokes a beautiful and fashionable aura that perfectly complements its outstanding performance features.

That’s the Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook, codenamed “Hummingbird,” which was launched recently by Acer Philippines, Inc . This latest member of the renowned “Aspire” line of products from Acer features some of the most inspiring and innovative technologies that will surely capture the attention of both enthusiasts and professionals looking for a computer that’s performance-centric yet a true sight to behold.

“Ultrabooks” are considered super-slim laptops with the power of a mid-range notebook packed into a smaller, lighter and thinner infrastructure yet do not shrivel in terms of connectivity or battery performance. Powered by 2nd-generation Intel Core processors, ultrabooks should measure up to certain standards before they get the “ultrabook” tag. Aside from form factor, responsiveness with regard to processor speed and booting up under 7 seconds are the other qualities needed. Ultrabooks also usually come with a metal chassis and a solid state drive instead of conventional hard drives.

One specific example is the Aspire S3’s “Acer Green Instant On” feature. If you’re always on the go and try to keep up with your bumper-to-bumper meetings for the day and you don’t even have time to shut down your computer properly, you’ll surely find this feature absolutely nifty. The “Acer Green Instant On” lets you resume the Aspire S3’s operations from Sleep mode in less than 2 seconds whether you have several applications open.

Even if in Deep Sleep mode, which happens after 8 hours in Sleep mode, turning back on happens after only 6 short seconds. And what’s even astonishing is that the “Acer Green Instant On” feature helps extend battery life up to an unbelievable 50 days on a full charge. Of course, the battery life of the Acer Aspire S3 that lasts 6-7 hours is an endearing factor already.

Since most cyber professionals nowadays rely on the Internet to do their work — or even play — you won’t have to worry since the Acer Aspire S3 boasts of being able to access the Internet 4x faster than any other notebook in the market, especially when accessing previously visited sites. For a professional always in a hurry or an IT enthusiast with a short attention span, connecting to the Internet in as easy as 1-2-3 via the Aspire S3’s “Instant Connect” feature is definitely a welcome treat.

Lugging the Acer Aspire S3 anywhere you want — coffee shop, office, board room, hotel lobby — is also no problem. The aluminum/magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis, plus the revolutionary display technology that integrates the 13.3-inch frame and a razor-thin 13-mm ultra-thin size at its thinnest point makes the Aspire S3 sleeker, more durable, and totally portable. Plus the fact that it’s featherlight being under 1.5 kilos makes it truly thinner and lighter, a real bring-anywhere laptop for the modern cyberwarrior. And who says the Acer Aspire S3 is not cool? Well, figuratively and literally, it is. The new “Thermal Comfort” airflow cooling design of this ultra-slim laptop has been redesigned to fit any environment. The ventless bottom design is an innovative feature where the air flow and heat goes to the rear and not the bottom so performance will not be affected. For those at the office or coffee shops or those who love to do their work at the comforts of their bed or pillow need not worry about heat issues.

The highly efficient motor design of the Aspire S3 is also a fantastic feature. The fan motor optimizes operational performance lowers power consumption by at least 35-50 percent in order to increase system battery life. Now that’s a welcome surprise.

Of course, the Acer Aspire S3 asserts itself with outstanding hardware specifications that can rival the most powerful laptops in the market, like a generous storage capacity that would make other ultrabooks green with envy. The Aspire S3 offers 320GB in hard drive storage space and sweetens it further with an additional 20GB through its solid state drive (SSD), which helps provide quicker access to files, and thereby puts the Aspire S3 as the ultrabook with the largest storage capacity to date.
