Acer has announced its first Ultrabook at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, the Aspire S3.

The Aspire S3 is encased in a thin, light metal design, the vendor said. It measures 1.3cm thin and weighs less than 1.4kg. It is also equipped with a full-size Acer FineTip chiclet keyboard, and powered by a lightweight, high-density battery that delivers up to 7 hours of running time. The aerodynamic design of the Aspire S3 features a strong and lightweight aluminum/magnesium alloy chassis, and a lid with a fingerprint-free metal finish.

The 13.3-inch ultra-thin HD LED display adopts an open cell design to conserve materials by using the lid and bezel to form an aluminum frame for the screen. This creates a slim yet protective profile and reduces the energy required during manufacture as compared to conventional panel designs, Acer said.

The machine will be available in select regions from September.
