Skinned Acer S3 On Review Duties

Posted on 15 December 2011 By


It looks like Intel got themselves a nice little mod done on the Acer S3 and having seen it, we think there’s going to be more of this going on next year. Personalisation was always an important aspect for car manufacturers, why not with Ultrabooks? The casing paint-job is based on a CPU design and there’s an interesting I keyktop too.

The modded Acer S3 appeared at a mini review by Design Milk and you can check out their thoughts on the Acer S3 here.

We’ll have a full review of the Acer S3 up tomorrow. It’s been better than expected and has turned out to be an honest Ultrabook with no showstoppers. Meanwhile, this article is being typed on a Toshiba Z830 and although its packed with specs, there’s an issue with fan noise that means we’re likely to switch to the S3 for the next article! Join us on Friday 16th at 2100 CET for a live review of the Toshiba Z830.

    Make sure to do your extensive battery testing on both laptops!!!

    Also, perhaps you could compile the battery data and incorporate them into your database?

      That is a tall order! The only thing I can really put in the database is a ‘range’ of battery life. I’ve done this in the past on Umpcportal but it was really difficult to make it useful for people. I think a detailed battery life section in the review is the way to go.

    Hmm. I guess having more stats in the database can make it look cluttered.

    Still, I would definitely like to see battery efficiency on reviews, not just how long the battery will last. It will be another reason for me to keep coming back to UMPCPortal/Ultrabooknews.
