Speed and a thin form factor are the keys to Acer new notebook the Aspire A 3. It Green Instant On feature provides instant-resume functionality and enhanced power management.

It measures 13 mm thin and weighs less than 1.35kg. It is also equipped with a full-size Acer FineTip chiclet keyboard, designed for comfortable use. All-day usability is assured by a super-lightweight, high-density battery that delivers up to seven hours of juice. The aerodynamic design of the Aspire S3 features a strong and lightweight aluminium/magnesium alloy chassis, and a lid with a fingerprint-free metal finish.

The 13.3-inch ultra-thin HD LED display adopts an open cell design to conserve materials by using the lid and bezel to form an aluminium frame for the screen. This creates a super-slim yet protective profile and reduces the energy required during manufacturing as compared to conventional panel designs.

Featuring a vent-free bottom, the Ultrabook rests comfortably on the user's lap. Warm components are placed away from the palmrest and touchpad area, so users won't feel any heat discomfort. A new airflow design dissipates warm air from the rear of the Ultrabook, preventing air from blowing towards the user's hands. Finally, the fan motor is optimised to enhance efficiency and lower power consumption by increasing system battery life.

The Aspire S3 features the latest 2nd generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors and a choice of 240GB SSD or 320GB HDD with embedded SSDfor fast access and media and data storage.

Standard HDMI output is also included for connection to popular HD peripheral devices. Furthermore, users can quickly and easily share data or download photos from their digital cameras using the 2-in-1 card reader.
