Next up in our countdown of the hottest 100 gadgets on the planet is the Acer Aspire S5 ultrabook
Like American tourists, there won’t be much to distinguish the hordes of identikit ultrabooks arriving on UK shores this summer. It’s the little things that’ll give the Acer Aspire S5 a gold medal-winning chance.
As well as an Intel core i processor and a Onyx black magnesium alloy body to die for, the S5 adds to its allure with the innovative Magic Flip I/O button, which exposes covert connectivity ports including a Thunderbolt, while raising the keyboard to a more comfortable typing angle. The device also has Dolby Home Theatre Audio and will wake from sleep in 1.5 seconds thanks to Acer's Instant On technology.
