Acer’s ultrabook has finally reached the Philippines — the Acer Aspire S3 series. Acer Philippines is the first one to launch the ultrabook in the country today with the Hummingbird.

Intel Core i5 2467M 1.6Ghz dual-core
4GB DDR3 RAM
320GB SATA HDD + 20GB SSD
Intel HD Graphics 3000 w/ 128MB RAM
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
2-in-1 card reader

Acer promises up to 6 hours of battery life on the S3. It also comes with a 320GB HDD for storage and another 20GB of SSD for buffer/caching.
Suggested retail price is Php44,900 for the specs above (other variants will offer up to 500GB HDD). Not bad considering an entry level Macbook Air is Php49,990.
Hands-on, photos and videos coming up in a bit.
Note: Okay, there’s the Samsung Series 9 which technically is also an ultrabook.
