Acer What is it? An Ultrabook with a non-ultra price. What's great? It's very slim and light, with good battery life, yet comes in at less than £700. What's not? The casing's a little plasticky, and the keyboard's cramped. Bottom line It can't match the...

Product round-up It took a little while for the production lines to get going, but the first few months of 2012 have seen super-slim Ultrabooks completely outnumbering every other type of desktop or laptop PC coming our way. Intel’s tight definition...

The Acer Aspire S3 is an attractive machine at first appearances and more attractive when you see the price tag. It however, doesn't have the features that compete with the best of the Ultrabook and lacks a little. However, it offers i5, ultraportable...

The Asus S3 feels like a middle of the road laptop. It does everything you need it to do without ever excelling itself. A short battery life is the real kicker, but that’s the price you pay for an ultrabook that costs a lot less than many of its...

Acer has taken a slightly different approach to Ultrabooks, coming up with two distinct lines of its S3 series. In appearance they all look the same -- with a clean, stylish uni-body design that makes them look like MacBook Air clones -- but they...

The Ultrabook world is continuing its rise to glory as the Acer Aspire S3 (here with the Core i7 processer inside) runs the thin show at .68 inches at its thickest point. This is by no means the thinnest notebook on earth, nor is it the Ultrabook with...

You’d have to actively be avoiding the tech media over the past several months not to have heard about Ultrabooks. Their coming has garnered a boatload of buzz, fueled in no small part by Intel’s $300 million fund to get hardware and software makers...
