The Aspire S7 has a 0.55mm display cover that contributes to the unit?s 11.9mm thinness and ultralight weight. It also has an aluminum unibody and a scratch-resistant screen that can withstand long-haul travel. The series is also available in a 13.3-inch version with higher storage capacity. Offering almost the same specifications found in the smaller unit, the Aspire S7-391 is equipped with a 256GB SSD, RAID support, 13.3? Full HD multi-touch display and an Acer Zoom Perfect touchpad that supports single- or five-finger scroll, pinch, rotate and flip. The Aspire S7 series has a dual-torque hinge frame design. By making the monitor firmly anchored on the keyboard via an extra torque, Acer has made its ultrabook stiffer and more resistant to finger touch force, thereby reducing the wobble effect experienced in other single-torque units. The Aspire S7?s electroluminescent (EL) backlit keyboard comes with a light sensor that automatically detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the backlight brightness accordingly. This feature improves visibility in low-light environments or during the night. Featuring Acer Green Instant On, the ultrabook boots in 6 seconds, resumes from Sleep mode in 1.5 seconds and can last 80 days in Deep Sleep. Acer also launched an all-in-one PC, the Aspire U series. The 35mm ultra-slim PC has edge-to-edge anti-scratch transparent glass and a matt metal stand that create the illusion of a floating monitor. The L-shaped stand clicks to place when the monitor is tilted. The Aspire 5600U comes with a 23-inch display that can be tilted with one hand to 30 to 80 degrees, creating an entertainment tablet or game console. Its 10-point touchscreen allows simultaneous control of the multimedia dashboard, or can be used as a large e-book reader display as well. For increased control and input options, the all-in-one PC comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse. In addition, Acer has provided the NFC easy tag feature for customized settings. Bringing intuitive control and PC interaction to a higher level, the model includes PointGrab, a hand-gesture application that allows gaming geeks and couch potatoes to play, control, or select files just by waving from about 3 to 4 meters away. The Acer Iconia Tab W510 tablet, meanwhile, is an everywhere-you-go productivity arsenal with a convertible form factor. Its biggest competitive advantage lies in its tri-mode usability, where it can go from Tablet mode, to Productivity mode (for content creation through the keyboard dock) and Presentation mode, where its 295-degree twist positions allow for comfortable browsing, presentation or video viewing. It is powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 (1MB L2 Cache, 1.50GHz, DDR3 1066 MHz, 6.5W) processor and a 2GB of LPDDR2 800 MHz onboard memory chip. Its more powerful sibling, the Acer Iconia Tab W700, on the other hand has full HD features, Intel Core i3-3217U (3 MB L3Cache, 1.80 GHz DDR3 1600 MHz, 17W. Its 11.6-inch full HD, 1920 x 1080 resolution, high-brightness Acer CineCrystal LED-backlit TFT LCD display with an integrated multi-touch (10-finger touch) screen and wide viewing angles of up to 178 degrees makes it an ideal presentation gadget.]]>
