Ultrabooks, Intel’s much-hyped alternative to the MacBook Air is finally reaching the market with Acer launching its first Ultrabook at $899 in US and Canada this week and his 2.98-pound aluminum beaut has a 13.3-inch (1366 x 768) panel is rated for six hours of battery life and promises to wake from sleep in a mere 2.5 seconds. While the 13.3-inch laptop boasts a Core i5-2467M processor, Intel’s integrated HD graphics and 4GB of RAM and Acer says additional configurations with larger solid state storage options will be available soon, but the pair apparently still provides two-second resume and speedy boot times………………..


Acer America announced the North American availability of its first Ultrabook, the Acer Aspire S3-951. This featherweight Ultrabook powers on instantly, connects to the Web in seconds and provides up to 50 days of stand-by time, or 6 hours of continuous usage. As slim and easy to carry as a magazine, it includes a powerful Intel Core i5 Processor, speedy solid state drive for quickly booting the operating system, roomy hard drive, and essential USB and HDMI ports. “The combination of extreme mobility and affordability found in the Acer Aspire S3-951 Ultrabook will undoubtedly change the way people think about mobile computing,” said Sumit Agnihotry, vice president of product marketing, Acer America. “Consumers are going to love the value they find in the freedom and capabilities it offers.” Like its inspiration, The Acer Aspire S3 Series was designed to be as light and quick as a hummingbird. With Acer’s Ultrabook, there is no need to waste time shutting down and restarting. It’s always ready in a flash for online browsing, instant messaging, social networking and other activities. Acer’s Green Instant On Technology delivers ultra-fast responsiveness, resuming from Sleep mode in as little as 2 seconds. The 20GB SSD drive stores the operating system and maintains the current PC’s state as it was when left unattended, so when the computer is awakened, web sites, emails or documents previously in use are instantly restored. After 8 hours of inactivity, the Aspire S3 Series will enter Deep Sleep mode, from which it will resume in 6 seconds. The user can change this 8 hour default setting to 120 minutes, which is recommended for longer trips or periods of inactivity. With these energy-conscious innovations, the battery life lasts up to 50 days – even longer than regular mobile phone batteries. All-day usability is delivered with an integrated long-life battery that delivers up to 6 hours of computing time.


Acer’s Instant Connect Technology reconnects the Ultrabook to the Internet from Sleep mode in just 2.5 seconds, four times faster than a conventional connection, enabling consumers to quickly access Instant Messaging, social networks and email immediately after the system comes awake. Sporting an ultra-thin design and an MSRP of just $899, the Acer Aspire S3-951 is light in your briefcase and light on your wallet. Measuring just half-an-inch at its thinnest and weighing a mere 2.98 pounds, it’s as easy to carry as a magazine or file folder. Its overall dimensions are 12.59 inches by 8.52-inches by .51 to.68-inches, making it one of the thinnest notebooks available on the market. The liberal use of magnesium aluminum/alloy contributes to the Aspire S3‘s rigid frame while also keeping the system as light as possible. The aerodynamic design includes a metallic silver gray hairline finish, and a fingerprint-free finish on the lid that feels as smooth as silk. The 13.3-inch ultra-thin HD LED display uses an open cell design, integrating the display’s covers with the glass panel. This allows the lid and bezel to form a strong aluminum frame around the screen and reduces the bezel thickness by about 10 percent, creating a super-slim silhouette that is still strong enough to protect the display. A seamless and uncluttered chassis, only a card reader and headphone connector are located on the left and right side; all the other connectors are located in the back, keeping the side profiles clean and sleek. For user convenience, the power and battery status indicators are located on the outside corner, allowing them to be viewed even when the lid is closed. In addition, the power button is located above the keyboard underneath the LCD, so it’s easy to reach but won’t be accidentally pressed when the notebook is picked up and moved. A large multi-gesture touchpad and full size chiclet keyboard keeps the design simple and neat.


The Acer Aspire Ultrabook also includes numerous design elements that keep the system running cool and efficiently. All the heat generating components have been placed away from the palm rest and touchpad area, and warm air is funneled away from the user through the back of the Ultrabook. Venting throughout the keyboard also helps the system stay cool, and its vent-free bottom allows it to be used comfortably on a lap or pillow, without fear of obstructing air flow and overheating. In addition, airflow is optimized to enhance efficiency and lower power consumption to help increase system battery life. Capturing the spirit of the hummingbird, the Aspire S3‘s diminutive form belies its agility and prowess. It is among the thinnest and lightest, but is incredibly fast and powerful. Featuring a 2nd generation Intel Core i5 Processor, Intel HD Graphics 3000, 20GB solid state drive, 320GB hard drive, and 4GB of memory, the Aspire S3-951 Ultraportable is small, lightweight and easy to carry while still delivering the power needed for multimedia programs, CPU intensive programs and graphic intensive games. It is currently the only Ultrabook on the market to include both a solid state and hard disk drive. Ideal for enjoying music, games or movies on-the-go or at home, the S3-951 includes professionally-tuned Dolby Home Theater v4, for vibrant, cinema-style surround sound and enhanced dialogue quality. Combined with its 13.3-inch HD Widescreen CineCrystal LED-backlit display featuring a 16:9 aspect ratio and a maximum resolution of 1366 x 788, it delivers sharp, rich high-definition visuals. It can be connected to an external monitor, projector or TV through a single cable via its HDMI port, so 1080p content can be enjoyed on a larger scale.


Acer makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and family, managing, storing, sharing and enjoying music, photos and videos between any enabled devices throughout a home or small office. In addition, they can also use it to connect to social networking sites, as connects to feeds from Facebook, videos on YouTube and images on flickr. In addition, a 2-in-1 card reader that supports SD Card and MultiMediaCard formats make it easy to quickly and easily share data or download photos from their digital cameras. For those who like to chat, video sessions are easy to set up and sound clear as a bell. The S3 Series includes Acer Video Conference Manager instant messaging software and a Crystal Eye 1.3 webcam that provides high-pixel density for amazing video image quality at 24 frames per second. Dual cameras make it easy to take high-definition still photos from either side of the Ultrabook. For wireless connectivity at home or on the go, Acer InviLink Nplify 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi CERTIFIED technology delivers reliable wireless connections wherever there’s a hotspot. The Aspire S3 Series lets you cut down the clutter with Bluetooth 4.0+ HSR technologies, the latest standard for quick short-range wireless file transfers. The Acer Aspire S3-951 Ultrabook will be available this week at leading online and retail outlets in the U.S. and Canada. It has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $899 (U.S. & CAN). Future models to be announced will round out Acer’s Ultrabook line up and will include Intel Core i7 or Core i3 Processors and larger capacity solid state drives.

    they can hear and see what your visually thinking
    this is the complete truth

    the reason alot of asians have completely expressionless faces, only associate with asians and dont associate with non asians very much, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read minds, if all over a billion asians were to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non asians, associate with non asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then alot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they dont like or find astonishing or funny because those people might see that and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, and if they were all to associate with non asians alot more there would be alot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those other people think things they dont like etc, so they only associate with asians so there wont be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place

    think about it, its not normal how alot of them act, and the entire way they act is all to hide their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
    every single asian on the planet is hiding their mind reading abilities, they will lie about having mind reading abilities forever!
    because they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives!
    thats why nobody knows about it!

    try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around asians, and try looking for asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they dont like, find funny or astonishing
    it still happens despite a large number of them having completely expressionless faces all the time, it would just happen alot more if none of them had completely expressionless faces all the time, its not uncommon!

    i know this sounds crazy, impossible, and completely unbelievable, BUT IT ISNT CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE

    the reason you think this truly is crazy, impossible and unbelieveable is because our society has propagandized people into believing that nothing extra ordinary is real and that is really is impossible, and that its crazy to think that its true that people can read minds, all just to cover up that asians can read minds! who says that cant exist? the people who have mind reading abilities who are trying to cover it up!

    you have to spread the message!!!
    the world has to know about this!!!!
