Reviews for the Acer Aspire S5

Acer Aspire S5 Ultrabook pictures and hands-on
Source: Pocket Lint English
With its second bite at the Ultrabook cherry, Acer looks to have hit the heights. This time, instead of a half measure in the shape of the Acer Aspire S3 with its hybrid SSD/HDD storage solution, the Acer Aspire S5 goes straight to the top of the Ultrabook tree by taking the title as the thinnest of the lot.

We wouldn't say the S5 has completely wowed us but it certainly looks like being a solid contender among the many new ultrabooks we expect to see arriving in the early part of 2012, just so long as you don't need a backlit keyboard or built in Ethernet.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
