This is not the first time we have heard about the Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook, however as of today we have an official (and specific) release date for the US market. In short, the Aspire S7 will be available on October 26th. This notebook will arrive running Windows 8 and with an option for either an 11-inch or 13.3-inch display. The 11-inch pricing will begin at $1,199 and the 13.3-inch pricing will begin at $1,399. Breaking each of these down a bit further and we have the following;

  • 11.6-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) touchscreen display
  • Intel Core i5-3317UB or i7-3517U processor
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 128GB SSD
  • Weight: 2.29 pounds
  • Measurements: 11.17 x 7.7 x 0.48-inches
  • 13.3-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) touchscreen display
  • Intel Core i5-3317UB i7-3517U processor
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 128GB SSD
  • Weight: 2.86 pounds
  • Measurements: 12.73 x 8.79 x 0.47-inches

Otherwise, some of the other key points include an all-aluminum unibody design, a light-sensing backlit keyboard, Acer Green Instant On technology, Acer Always Connect and TwinAir cooling which is said to help extend the battery life and also keep the notebook cooler. Finally, the Aspire S7 ships with Acer Cloud which means access to your files from other devices. Bottom line here, while there is always the real-world hands-on use cases to consider before making a purchase — the Aspire S7 seems like it will be a worthy consideration for anyone in the market for a Windows 8 Ultrabook.
