Acer announced and showcased the Aspire S7 Ultrabook back in June as part of the 2012 Computex show that took place in Taipei. According to a report from SlashGear, the ultra-thin touchscreen device will become available in the United Kingdom by the end of September, priced at £1,149.99 and up.
The base configuration apparently offers a third generation Intel Core i5 central processing unit and the integrated Intel HD 4000 video card with shared video memory. Moreover, customers will be provided with an LED-backlit, capacitive touchscreen display that measures 11.6-inch or 13.3-inch in diagonal (depending on the model) and has a native resolution of 1920-by-1080 pixels.
The report further indicates that the 12.5mm thin notebook features a “white glass” coating and houses 4GB of RAM, a 128GB solid-state drive and a Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n adapter. Other specs of the Aspire S7 Ultrabook include USB 3.0 connectivity, micro HDMI output, a Thunderbolt port, an SD/SDHC card reader slot and a front-facing web camera for video calls.
Built using aluminum-magnesium alloys, Acer’s latest mobile product weighs 1.2- 1.3kg, runs on a Windows 8 operating system and presumably offers up to 12 hours of battery life.
