The new line will be represented by 14-inch and 15-inch models and will feature Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge processors with the displays working at 1366×768 pixel resolution. The new Aspire M5 ultrabooks can be easily recognized by the thin frame around the display as well as the metallic colored chassis.
