For those still weighing a purchase of Acer's Aspire S3 despite our review (Verge Score: 5.0), this news may finally prompt bringing out the credit card. The ultrabook is now available in a Core i7-powered configuration featuring a 240GB solid state drive, which will presumably only enhance the already impressive performance and resume times we experienced with our unit. The high-end S3 will set you back $1,299 — the base model remains for sale at $899 — and can be had immediately at a variety of retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg. Whether more power and speedier storage are enough to overcome the shortcomings we found is a decision we leave to you, friend.
