The deal: Acer Aspire S3-951-2364G34iss - affordably priced low-end Ultrabook - $847.45
The 13.3in Acer Aspire S3-951-2364G34iss is a very competitively priced Ultrabook for $847.45. Sure, it does make use of a regular hard disk drive supplemented by a tiny solid state drive for caching, but the bulk storage is a compelling trade-off. The performance will consequently be less snappy than an Ultrabook with just an SSD, but having room for more media content is sure to appeal to many. It’s otherwise got a solid set of specs for its 1.4kg weight, and for the asking price you really can’t go wrong.
The Aspire S3 has a low-voltage 2nd Gen Intel Core i3-2367M (1.4GHz), a decent low-end processor that can fluidly run productivity applications and also more intensive software.
The Aspire S3 has an integrated graphics solution called Intel HD Graphics 3000. It’s on par with a low-end dedicated graphics card, and is sufficient for modern games at the lowest settings.
The Aspire S3 has 4GB of RAM, which is enough to run several programs at once smoothly. It’s more than enough to ensure fluid overall system performance with Windows 7 Home Premium.
The Aspire S3 has a 320GB hard disk drive, which is on the small side. It’ll still be enough to hold some media content along with important documents though. It also has a 20GB solid state drive used for caching, which allows it to boot up quickly and also helps some programs respond more swiftly.
The Aspire S3 has a 13.3in (1,366 x 768 resolution) gloss screen. The viewing angles and colour vibrancy are about average.
The Aspire S3 has exceptional portability, because it weighs 1.4kg and is 17.5mm thick. It’s more than light enough to be taken anywhere without any problems whatsoever.
