The Acer Aspire S5 Ultrabook was recently named the best laptop of CES 2012 by Laptop Magazine as well as being voted the “Crowd Favourite” thanks to its sleek and innovative design.
Acer unveiled the world’s thinnest Ultrabook with the Aspire S5, an ultra-slim device that measures only 15 mm at the maximal point.
It weighs less than 1.35 kg (less than 3 lbs.) and is built with a 13.3-inch (34 cm) LCD.
In addition, it features the unique Acer Green Instant On technology for fast boot and resume, and Acer Always Connect, which lets users manage their multimedia and data on all their devices at anytime, anywhere — even from sleep.
The Aspire S5 is Acer’s first Ultrabook to feature a smartly designed MagicFlip I/O port panel concealed just below the hinge. This design feature enhances the overall slenderness and streamlined form of the S5.
When needed, a press of the MagicFlip key opens the panel to reveal a selection of I/O ports: HDMI, USB 3.0 and 20 Gbps Thunderbolt.
The Aspire S5 features an Intel Core processor, SSD storage for speed and increased shock resistance, professionally-tuned Dolby Home Theater v4, long battery life via the PowerSmart battery pack, and is equipped with a chiclet keyboard.
