Acer Named as CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Award Honoree

SAN JOSE, CA, Nov 13, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Acer today announced it has been named an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for its Aspire S7 Ultrabooks. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 29 product categories.


Hailed as one of the most exciting Windows 8-based touch Ultrabooks to debut this holiday season, Acer's S7 Ultrabooks are as thin as a tablet and feature simple clean designs. With their all-aluminum unibody designs, they are exceptionally thin and light, yet resilient and durable. Depending on model, they are as thin as .47 inches and weigh as little as 2.29 pounds and include 13.3-inch or 11.6-inch full high-definition (1920 x 1080) touch screens that are protected by rigid lids made of white Gorilla Glass 2 or aluminum.

The S7-391 models include an elegant white design and a glossy white Gorilla Glass 2 cover that is smooth to the touch, beautiful to the eye, thin yet super strong, scratch-resistant and easy-to-clean.

Optimizing its touch capabilities, its lid tilts back a full 180 degrees, allowing it to be used flat against a table or desk, much as one would use a tablet.

The smaller and lighter S7-191 model includes an 11.6-inch high definition touch screen, and features an all-aluminum unibody and aluminum cover with an elegant cross direction brushed finish.

Both models include a unique dual torque hinge design which enables the displays to stay upright and stable even when used for touch input and Acer's new innovative thermal design, TwinAir cooling (patent-pending), which extends battery life and keeps the Ultrabooks cool and comfortable to use. Lastly, a light-sensing keyboard automatically detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the keyboard backlight brightness.

They include 3rd Generation Intel Core processors and solid state drives. An embedded Li-Polymer battery provides up to 6 hours of battery life, and an optional second battery doubles computing time up to 12 hours(2).

"Acer is proud to receive an esteemed CES Innovation Award," said Sumit Agnihotry, vice president of product marketing, Acer America.

"We appreciate being recognized for the high-level of engineering and design quality found in our S7 Series Ultrabooks, which were developed with premium construction methods and materials and cutting-edge manufacturing processes." The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)(R), the producer of the International CES, the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

The Innovations entries are judged based on the following criteria: -- Engineering qualities, based on technical specs and materials used -- Aesthetic and design qualities, using photos provided -- The product's intended use/function and user value -- Unique/novel features that consumers would find attractive -- How the design and innovation of the product compares to other products in the marketplace Products chosen as an Innovations honoree reflect innovative design and engineering of the entries. Examples may include the first time various technologies are combined in a single product or dramatic enhancements to previous product designs.
