At its grand event today, Acer has announced the Aspire S 13, a new powerful & sleek laptop that wants to compete with the likes of the 13-inch Apple MacBook Air and Dell's XPS 13. Most importantly, it wants to do all that while being significantly cheaper than the mentioned competitors. A cool move from Acer here!
The Aspire S 13 will have a 13.3-inch Full HD IPS display, which you can choose from either the touch-enabled version or the no-touch version. You can configure it with up to 8GB of RAM as well as up to a 512GB SSD, and an optional battery will make it allegedly last a whopping 13 hours on a charge (the default power pack only nets you 9 hours of usage). Powering the sleek & slim machine are Intel's 6th generation Core processors (ranging from core i3 and i5 to the biggest, i7), and it will have a USB Type-C port, two 'normal' USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, and an SD card slot. Here is the official introduction video of the newly announced Laptop for your viewing pleasure -
It will be offered in Colours - Obsidian Black &/ Pearl White, when it goes on sale in May with a starting price of $699. This price is much more cheaper than that of the Apple MacBook Air 13" and Dell XPS 13, both with four-figure prices. The Aspire S 13 weighs 1.4kg and it's just 0.57 inches thin and uses diamond cut edging around the sides and touchpad to give it an elegant look. The design uses aluminum on the deck and bottom but a unique nano imprint lithography on the lid to provide texture and a firm grip.
A perfect laptop for me, I must say. What do you think about this new Laptop PC? Would you buy it when it's out? Make use of the comment box to drop your contributions and don't forget to share this post with others. Cheers!
