Apart from the Switch Alpha 12, another new laptop that Acer has highlighted at its press event in New York just moments ago is the Aspire S 13. Being part of the ultra-slim S series, the Aspire S 13 comes with a sleek physique that has a thickness of 14.48 mm (0.57-inch) and weights around 1.3kg.
Complete with a hinge design that was adopted from the hugely popular Aspire V Nitro laptop, the Aspire S 13 features a 13-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display with Acer BluelightShield technology and optional 10-point touch capability. Powered by sixth generation Intel Core processors, it can be geared up with up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB solid state drive.
Other than that, it also features a top with nano-imprint pattern, backlit keyboard, USB 3.1 Type-C port, 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO capability, and Dolby Audio enhancements. The Aspire S 13 also has a battery life of up to 1`3 hours but apparently this can only achieve with the laptop’s optional 54 Whr 3-cell Li-ion battey
The new Aspire S 13 laptop will be released in EMEA regions from this month onwards before making its way to North America and China in May. Price-wise, it will start at EUR 699 (about RM 3,077), USD 699 (about RM 2,723), and CNY 5,499 (about RM 3,304) respectively.
