Acer Aspire S7 touchscreen Ultrabook coming in September
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.
