Acer Announces World's Thinnest Ultrabook, The Aspire S5

Acer logoAcer announced its first Ultrabook, the Aspire S3, back in early September. The lightweight notebook matched Apple's MacBook Air not only in looks, but also in its maximum thickness of 17mm.

Today at CES, Acer announced the next logical progression in its Ultrabook lineup: the Aspire S5. The Aspire S5 is even thinner, measuring in at just 15mm at its thickest point. Despite the slight decrease in thickness, the 13.3-inch Aspire S5 still weighs at the same 2.97 pounds.

Acer isn't revealing much about the innards of the Aspire S5, but we do know that it features an SSD, USB 3.0 connectivity, an HDMI port, and a Thunderbolt connector for 20Gbps transfers.

"The Ultrabook is much more than just a product segment," said Jim Wong, president of Acer Inc. "It's a new trend that will become the mainstream for mobile PCs, and customers will see the unique features gradually extended across Acer's notebook family."

There is no word on pricing for the Aspire S5 which will launch in the second quarter, but the Aspire S3 has a starting price of $899.

We can only hope that the Aspire S5 will embrace Acer’s philosophy of abandoning “cheap and unprofitable products."
