Aspire S3 (2011) | Acer
Acer has announced a release date of late June for its Aspire S5 ultrabook, and it is refreshing its cheaper S3 line with Ivy Bridge and a solid state drive.
Digitimes is reporting that a 15-inch Acer ultrabook with a fiberglass body started production in mid-March. There's no word on the specifications of the device, but it's reportedly being manufactured by Pegatron at a fairly high volume, with shipments of around 100,000 units per month.
According to recent comments, Acer is planning a revision to its Aspire S3 ultrabook that could bring Ivy Bridge processors as soon as April of 2012.
Reportedly, Apple's demand on unibody laptop chassis producers is causing manufacturers to look at alternative design options for their ultrabooks.
