Acer Aspire S5 Review and Specification
Acer has announced its Aspire S5 with lovely brushed metal lid and the interior seems just as good as the outside. The base and palm rest sense as rock-solid and it seems quite immune to the fingertips. When you held it in one hand and really wrested control on your S5, there will not any hint of flex or bend, so it can be hoped to build quality in general. It is also noticeable that whittled down the base – something, which should be obvious while picking it up for the primarily, or even glance at pictures of it.
Now, here is where Acer has not learned from the prior follies. S5’s keys have the similar scratchy feeling as the S3 or even the novel mid-ranged Timeline Ultra machines. Moreover, they are shallow. There is a bit gap here -- so small that you might sense your hands edgy as you focus on punching buttons hard so that your strikes register. We also have noticed that major keys remain sadly undersized, while the “Enter key” is adequately sized.
So here you have it. Acer announced it as Thunderbolt that means this should be the Ivy Bridge. That is about all we could say in the good conscience, at the moment. The Aspire S5 will launch shipping in the July-August of this year, though price is not announced yet.
GraphicsAcer Aspire S3 will be available with 13.3 inch display as a common format for notebooks. The benefit of this display size is that the notebook can get small measurement and can be handy. The small display requires few energy that improves the battery life and in consequence the efficiency. The drawback is that the evaluation of texts is quite exhausting for your eyes, particularly along high resolutions. S5 have a bigger design as well as features, which befit typical laptops, together with the optical-drive and the enthusiastic graphics.
PerformanceAspire S5 supports Acer's latest cloud-based Always-Connect-Technology, just as Apple's iCloud; which lets you run data even when the notebook is asleep. The S5 will be woken up through any smartphone, and will be able to immediately log into the social network accounts and email. Clear.fi Media, Clear.fi Photo, and AcerCloud Docs are the main services that perform same integrated ecosystem jobs for videos, photos, documents and music. Moreover, it will have the fast 1.5 seconds wake from sleep capability, Acer Green Instant On.
S5 will be the world's thinnest 15mm notebook with black brushed-metal and magnesium-alloy, weighing only 1.35kg. It is equipped with Thunderbolt technology, having 20Gbps speeds with HDMI ports and USB 3.0— all are located below the Acer S5's hinge, and may be accessed by punching Acer's MagicFlip key. The computer is powered by an Intel Core processor (though Acer didn't reveal which one), has SSD storage, uses Dolby Home Theater audio, and has a PowerSmart battery pack that Acer says will have a lifecycle three times longer than normal batteries.
