Reviews for the Acer Aspire S5

Acer Aspire S5 Ultrabook pictures and hands-on
Source: Pocket Lint English Archive.org version
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.

Acer Aspire S5 first look

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.

13.30":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
