Just before the CES 2012, Acer unveiled the world’s thinnest Ultrabook, the Aspire A5. Measuring only 15mm in thickness, it weighs less than 1.35kg. This 13.3in screen Ultrabook features Acers Green Instant On technology for fast boot and resume and Acer Always Connect that lets users manage their multimedia and data on all their devices, even from sleep.
Acer Always Connect gets users online faster than conventional connections for better productivity and infotainment enjoyment. With their Facebook, Twitter and Outlook email accounts open, users can see updates instantly upon resuming. Furthermore, Acer Always Connect can wake up the Aspire S5 from a remote device like a smartphone. Access to all documents, music, pictures and video files is fast and always available.
The Aspire S5 is Acer’s first Ultrabook to feature MagicFlip I/O port panel concealed just below the hinge. This design feature enhances the overall slenderness and streamlined form of the S5. When needed, a press of the MagicFlip key opens the panel to reveal a selection of I/O ports: HDMI, USB 3.0 and 20 Gbps Thunderbolt.
On the performance part, the Aspire S5 is powered by an Intel Core processor, SSD storage, Dolby Home Theater sound and a PowerSmart battery pack that according to Acer provides 3 times longer life cycle than traditional batteries. The Aspire S5 will start shipping in Q2 2012.
