Acer's slim and sleek Aspire S7 Windows 8 ultrabook will be headed to the US later this month, and the company has just announced pricing for the attractive notebook. The S7 impressed us with its good looks and solid build quality when we got a peek at it at the IFA trade show in Germany last month. Arriving in 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch versions, the Aspire S7 features a 1080p IPS touchscreen display, third-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, 4GB of RAM, and up to a 256GB SSD. Both models are crafted from aluminum, with the smaller version weighing 2.29 pounds and the larger model tipping the scales at 2.86 pounds. The 11.6-inch model will set back buyers $1,199, while the 13.3-inch version will start at $1,399. The Aspire S7 is expected to be available for purchase starting on October 26th. Rest assured, we will be eager to put this particular ultrabook through its paces once it's on shelves.
