    To be perfect there is only one thing missing – 360 ° screen rotation.
    All in all the best out there. I see potential problems with the hinges but we’ll have to see hands on first.

      The 11.6″ is mobile me!!

    At 12mm, if this had a swivel screen it would still be thinner than many of the 1st gen ARM tablets.

    12.5mm?!?!? HOLY CRAP! Time to load up on Asus stock!
    They’re on fire!

      This is Acer, not Asus but yea job well done. And 12mm is freaking thin!

    The 11.6″ version is dead sexy; the 13.3″ looks like someone glued a whiteboard on the back of the display. Are they going to make a 13″ available without the heavy and ugly glass? -Although having a whiteboard built into the back of your laptop display might be useful.. ;0

    I’m almost scared to see the keyboard reviews of the 11.6″ model, though.

    According to the youtube video previews done by Nicole of netbooknews, there’s no HDMI on the 11.6″ model, only a Thunderbolt port, one USB 3.0 port, a headphone/mic jack, and microSD card slot.

    While the 13.3″ model adds another USB 3.0 port and the micro HDMI port with full size SD card slot.

      According to Engadget, the HDMI port is on the back.

      Look at the pictures and video of the 11.6″ model.

      I’m dissappointed about the micro SD instead of a regular SD slot. I don’t like how the row of F keys has been merged into the number keys row. I’d prefer a more black or gray color myself.

      I do like how the bezel seems small. At least compared to the 11.6″ Asus Zenbook. For people looking for an 11.6″ notebook, a smaller footprint means a big deal. I also like the “up to” 9 hours of battery life. We’ll see how that pans out though.

      I’m really interested how the Acer’s thermal dissipation design affects clocking of the CPU. Hopefully, this thing doesn’t get throttled early when compared to other ultrabooks. Right now, this is my current choice for my next ultraportable.

    If Acer could throw in a discrete GPU to this beast, it would be nice..
