"The Ultrabook is much more than just a product segment. It's a new trend that will become the mainstream for mobile PCs, and customers will see the unique features gradually extended across Acer's notebook family," Jim Wong, president of Acer Inc said.
Innovative Acer Green Instant On and Acer Always Connect technologies enable data upload and retrieval anytime, anywhere, and deliver power-saving features as well.

Acer Always Connect gets users online faster than conventional connections for better productivity.
The Aspire S5's cover rim wraps around the system body like a protective shell.
A magnesium-aluminum alloy cover and palmrest provide a slimmer and sturdier form, while the metallic brushed detail presents subtle elegance.
The clean and ultra-fluid contours seen from all angles make the S5 a vision of beauty.
The Aspire S5 is Acer's first Ultrabook to feature a smartly designed MagicFlip I/O port panel concealed just below the hinge.
