The Acer Aspire S7 is set for a UK release date of September, and is set to be Acer’s best Ultrabook yet.
If you are in the market for touch-screen Ultrabook in order to make full use of Windows 8′s tile-based user interface, Acer has you covered with their Aspire S7 Ultrabook which has now been confirmed for a 2012 UK release date of September.
The Acer Aspire S7 will be Acer’s range topping laptop, with the lowest spec featuring a Intel Core i5 Ivy Bridge processor, 4GB of RAM and a 128GB solid state drive which should be plenty of storage for most people (remember, you have the cloud too). The Aspire S7 also boasts a 12-hour battery cycle and a backlit keyboard, two features which we are sure you’ll agree are musts within a top-end Ultrabook.
Arguably the most exciting feature of this laptop is the option to have a touch-screen display, something which is a fantastic feature to have coupled with Windows 8. Upon release, the Aspire S7 will ship with Windows 7, however all Acer Ultrabooks will get a free Windows 8 upgrade upon Microsoft’s launch anyway. To get this offer, Acer will refund Acer customers the price (read our coverage for more on this).
Acer will be selling 11.6″ and 13.3″ flavours to its latest and greatest Ultrabook, with both models being configurable through Acer. In essence this means you can beef your chosen Ultrabook up with faster processors, more RAM and more SSD space.
Acer Aspire S7 UK Release date
To confirm the above the Acer Aspire S7 will become available to UK consumers in September. An exact set date in September is not fully known, however we know it will be in September. Most likely, a release date of before the 20th is likely.
Acer Aspire S7 UK Pricing
