Acer Aspire 13.3” Intel Core i5 Notebook


Premium looks inside and out! Acer’s S7 Aspire range combines beautiful aesthetics – with protection that doesn’t compromise on its modern design – as well as a powerful, unrelenting performance.

This laptop is a sight to behold. It has an aluminum unibody design that is complemented with strong protection; Corning® Gorilla® Glass covers the lid – endurance defined.

Owing to the benefit of having a touch screen, it has a Lock-in Touch feature that – through an innovative dual-torque hinge – locks the lid in place, preventing any movement when you press on the screen.

Acer has, ingeniously, packed all of these features into a magnificent machine that weighs a mere 1.3kgs!

Other than the hefty price tag and the absence of an optical drive, Acer’s S7 is a laptop that makes a bold statement: built-in perfection.
