Remember when Apple announced the Macbook Air? The ultra-thin profile was amazing, and they certainly made sure everyone knew what they had done. Nowadays, however, there are plenty of ultra-thin “ultrabooks” on the market and, I guess, it can be hard to get any one of them to stick in consumers’ minds. So Acer have come up with a video campaign that talks about how their Aspire S7 Ultrabook “transformed” Megan Fox. Have a look below:
Yes, very good, but somehow I doubt it will actually let me talk to dolphins (Hey, remember Seaquest DSV? I’m sure they could talk to a dolphin in that). What the advert does, though, and I guess this was the point, is show off some of the nice features of the ultrabook. It certainly looks sleek, and the touchscreen is a nice, well, touch.
So what are the specs?
The 13″ model is encased in white gorilla glass and comes in at just 11.9mm thick, while the 11″ model is composed of an aluminium unibody at 12.2mm. The touchscreen offers 10-point touch sensitivity, and can be opened to 180 degrees to lie flat on the table. Add in a backlit keyboard, and dual-fan cooling system (one fan sucks in cool air, another blows out hot air), and Acer are certainly going to the gadget geeks on this one.
There’s more, but I won’t bore you. Check out the data sheet on Acer’s website for the full specs.
