Acer working on Aspire S7 Ultrabook with WQHD display

Written by Slobodan Simic

Available next week and starts at US $1,499

It appears that Acer is preparing to launch a couple of new versions of its Aspire S7 Ultrabook which will feature a 13.3-inch WQHD 2560x1440 panel and be powered by Intel Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs. The new Aspire S7 Ultrabook SKUs should be available in the USA as of next week with a starting price of US $1,499.

According to Engadget, Acer will launch a couple of new SKUs which will feature a 13.3-inch WQHD 2560x1440 panel. On a 13.3-inch panel this resolution adds up to 221ppi, which is just a few pixels shy from 227ppi on Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina.

The new WQHD enabled 13.3-inch Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook will be probably available in a couple of SKUs as well, depending on the amount of memory or storage. Known two SKUs include a base model powered by Intel's Core i5-4200U, which should be priced at US $1,499 in most US stores, as well as the more powerful one with Intel's Core i7-4500U CPU and a US $1,799 price tag.

The rest of the known specs for those two SKUs include 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. According to Engadget.com, both should hit major retail/e-tail shops in the USA as of next week.
