2 ACER ASPIRE S3
Acer, $1199-$2099, acer.com.au
★★★★ The first ultrabook off the rank in Australia is this model, Acer’s 13.3-inch sleek, silver computer. The Aspire S3 is just 1.3cm thick, weighs as little as 1.4kg and fulfils promises Intel made of the ultrabook. The sleek laptop will wake in less than two seconds after you open its lid and Acer promises its battery can last up to seven hours on a full charge. Its screen could be better from an angle and its specs are limited to a 1.7GHZ chip and 4GB RAM, but this portable laptop is powerful.
