Aspire S3 with Core i3 & 500GB HDD appears in stores

One of the newer configurations of the Acer Aspire S3 is this fairly affordable ultrabook being priced at Php39,990 — the first one to break the Php40k price barrier.

The Aspire S3 was challenged by Samsung’s Series 5 ultrabook in the Php40k+ price range so this move might have been done to further separate itself from the pack.


Acer Aspire S3 specs:
13.3″ LCD display @ 1366×768 pixels
Intel Core i3-2367M 1.4GHz dual-core
Intel HD Graphics 3000 w/ 128MB RAM
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0
1.3MP webcam
2-in-1 card reader
2 x USB 3.0 ports
1 x HDMI port
36.4Wh or 3280mAh 3-cell Li-polymer battery
3.09 lbs.
Windows 7 Home Basic

Suggested retail price is Php39,900 and comes with a free external DVD-Writer. Had Acer introduced this earlier (as in last year), they would have made a bigger splash in this hotly contested ultrabook category wchih a lot of people look up to as a very expensive breed of laptops.
