Acer recommends Windows 8.
The cutting-edge design of the Aspire S3 sets it apart from other Ultrabooks™. The patented dual-torque hinge and auto light-sensing keyboard make both touch and type input stable and comfortable. Plus, the aluminium case takes bumps in stride, and Acer TwinAir cooling technology keeps the S3 cool and quiet without sacrificing performance.
From graphics-intensive multimedia to everyday tasks, the Aspire S3 has the fast performance you desire with a 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor. Your entertainment enjoyment will reach new levels thanks to NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics1, providing quick photo editing and HD video creation, plus great gaming.
Ready when you are, Acer Fast Resume wakes the Aspire S3 in just a second, and with Intel® Smart Connect Technology, it always stays connected and up to date. You'll even save time powering-on the system: the S3 automatically fires up from shutdown mode as soon as you open the lid.
