If you thought the Macbook Air is thin, you haven’t seen the Acer S5. The S5 is just 1.5 cm at girth and weighs 1.35 kg. The full-me­tal mag­ne­sium-alu­minum al­loy body of the 13.3-inch S5 im­pressed all those spot­ted it at CES 2012. In fact, some expressed ap­pre­hen­sion that the body was so thin you could “cut your­self with it”. The de­vice is ex­pected to be among the first de­vices to run the In­tel Ivy Bridge 1.70GHZ pro­ces­sor and will have the In­tel HD4000 graph­ics. Along with HDMI, the S5 will have two USB 3.0 ports as well as a Thun­der­bolt. Re­ports sug­gest that the S5 will have just 5 hours of bat­tery life and could cost well over $1,000.
