Acer starts sales of updated Aspire S7 ultrabook

The Taiwanese Acer has started the sales of a new, updated version of its Aspire S7 ultrabook, now with an Intel Haswell processor.

The new Aspire S7 sports a 13.3-inch display at 2560 x 1440 pixels (221 ppi), an Intel Core i7-4500U Haswell processor with two cores at 1.8 GHz each, 8 GB of RAM and SSDs with capacities of up to 256 GB. The ultrabook also provides two USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI port, a mini-DisplayPort, a SD card reader and 3.5-mm audio jacks.

This is not everything the Aspire S7 comes with – the ultrabook now sports a more powerful battery that along with Haswell’s power saving technologies will allow the notebook to work for 8 hours. This has had its price though – now the chassis of the S7 is 12.9 mm thick, up from 11.9 mm in the older model.

Furthermore the Aspire S7’s display is protected by Gorilla Glass 2 technology, while the ultrabook now has a backlit keyboard. The ultrabook will sell for USD 1499-1699 depending on the options chosen.
