Acer has announced its Aspire S7 series ultrabooks, featuring a unibody design made from a single block of aluminum with a process that saves energy and material. They also feature Full HD IPS 10-point displays with 1920 by 1080 resolution. In addition, its wide-viewing angle technology provides consistent and accurate color from viewing angles up to 178 degrees, according to the vendor.

The 13.3-inch Aspire S7 ultrabook model's touch display is surrounded by a glossy white Gorilla Glass 2 lid, measuring only 11.9mm thin, but has a strong resistant over scratch and is easy to wipe clean.

The smaller and lighter 11.6-inch model, also with a Full HD touchscreen, features an all-aluminum unibody and aluminum cover with a cross-direction brushed finish to help strengthen machine's durability and repels fingerprints and smudges, Acer said.

The Aspire S7 is equipped with third-generation Intel Core i5-3317UB or i7-3517U processors and solid state drives (SSD) in a RAID 0 configuration. An embedded Li-Polymer battery provides up to six hours of battery life, and an optional second battery doubles computing time up to 12 hours.

In addition, the S7 ships with a micro HDMI to VGA cable for use with projectors for presentations, and a USB to RJ45 port for connecting to a wired network.
