55 devices leaderboard: Ultrabooks operating

Acer’s aspire S3 is anything but a silent companion even when simple it is office work with 1.5 sone to hear clearly. At high loads it is noticeable with around 2.5 sone. The touchpad with integrated buttons responds precisely to touch and offers plenty of space for gestures, about to enlarge image content or photos to rotate. The keyboard is not illuminated.

Battery and design

Three hours battery life at work and almost five when playing videos are neat. After just over three hours on the socket, the battery is full again. Visually the aspire of other ultrabooks lags behind the casing with a screen cover made of aluminium and plastic base looks not very elegant out.
