The Acer Aspire S5 – Tony Stark’s Kind of Laptop

by on August 2, 2012
 

The Ultrabook dieting rivalry has been going on for way too long. Truth be told, Acer’s Aspire S5 has single-handedly earned the “size zero” title. “The World’s Thinnest Ultrabook” isn’t only for show; it packs features and specs beyond belief. Don’t get me wrong, Apple’s MacBook Air, Dell’s XPS 13 and HP’s Envy Spectre have all come close, but the S5 completely blew them out of the water.

Its smooth onyx black magnesium-aluminum chassis acts as a deceiving enclosure for the slender monster within. It’s only when you pick up Acer’s new baby that you realize just how lean and light it really is (1.2kg) in case you were wondering. [quote]Yes, the price tag is quite hefty, but let me assure you that it’s worth it, and here’s why.[/quote]

Despite the Aspire S5’s svelteness, it manages to pack in top-notch technologies and features, making it a solid performer in the Ultrabook category. In terms of power and efficiency, it includes a 3rd Generation Intel Core i5 Processor, a 128 GB solid-state drive for faster data access and an ultrafast Thunderbolt I/O port. A 13.3-inch widescreen LED-backlit display delivers vivid images which makes surfing the web, streaming your favorite shows, engaging on social networks all that much more enjoyable in stunning high definition.

Music lovers want the highest possible sound quality, while movie buffs want both amazing sound and video clarity. Acer’s S5 is able to accommodate for all of the above. Thanks to Dolby Home Theatre v4, the S5 is able to play music the way you want to hear it, in surround sound. On the other hand, Intel HD Graphics 4000 and the crystal clear 13.3-inch LED widescreen (1366 x 768) will have no problems playing all your favorite video content.

The world’s thinnest Ultrabook doesn’t muster when it comes to power or usability, and this is a real play to the high end for Acer, a manufacturer that has often focused on mass-production for the low-cost end of the market.
