The newly-launched ultra slim Acer Aspire S3 is a new generation ultra computing experience that constitutes a milestone, according to computer firm Acer Sales & Services in Malaysia.
During the launch in October, Acer Sales & Services general manager, Ricky Tan, said: "We are pleased to introduce to Malaysians a fresh new experience of mobile computing. Designed to meet the demands of modern notebook users who want to maximise their time and effort wherever they go, the new Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook combines the power and productivity of notebooks, and essential features of the smartphone and tablet PC, such as fast startup and Internet connectivity."
"The Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook is expected to lead a new growth momentum for Acer's notebooks as we strive to offer our customers the complete range of mobile products with attractive and immediate technology," said Tan.
He said the Aspire S3 delivers two new innovations. "The first is the Acer Green Instant On, which delivers ultra-fast responsiveness to give an 'instant on & instant use' user experience, energy efficiency, and enhanced power management. Acer Green Instant On technology has two sleep modes from which the Acer Aspire S3 resumes ultra-fast. In Sleep, the Acer Aspire S3 will resume in less than two seconds, and in Deep Sleep it resumes in six seconds."
"This energy efficient innovation ensures a freedom of battery longevity with seven hours of battery life in operation and up to 50 days battery life in deep sleep mode," said Tan. "The Acer Instant Connect allows users to access the Internet in only 2.5 seconds, four times faster than conventional connections - so users can go faster for better productivity and infotainment enjoyment."
Intel Malaysia national sales manager, Simon Chan, who was also at the launch, said: "We are happy to see the formal launch of the Acer Aspire S3, Acer's first Ultrabook and as one of the leading time to market partners to place an Ultrabook in the market. The features of the Acer Aspire S3 powered by Intel's 2nd Gen Core processors including Instant On, Instant Connect, long battery life, and its elegant slim and light design will satisfy many users' desire for a free and easy life on the go."
"As the only Ultrabook with a HDD option, the Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook offers the computing power and storage needs of a notebook, along with the mobile communication advantages of the smartphone and tablet PC," said Acer's Tan. "This is a major breakthrough in notebook design and will surely fortify our notebook competitiveness in the ICT market."
