At CES, we saw Acer reveal the follow up to its Acer Aspire S3 -- the impressive black aluminum Acer Aspire S5. If the S5 continues to impress once it's available to users, then we're sure Acer's prediction that Ultrabooks making up about 25-35% of Acer's 2012 notebook shipments would be true.

We've been promised some very exciting form factors thanks to the flexibility of Ultrabooks coupled with Windows 8, and the appropriately named Lenovo Ideapad Yoga is one such Ultrabook. This spiffy little form-bender flexes to become a tablet in one moment and then a notebook the next moment.
A short while back, we reported that Acer will be placing big bets on Ultrabooks, and the result is what you see here today -- the Acer Aspire S5. One of the more important tidbits was that Acer will be moving away from producing "cheap" products, and it is clearly evident in the Acer Aspire S5.
