Acer Aspire 3951 – a competitor to MacBook Air

Acer is preparing to launch a new product that can be classified as a serious competitor for MacBook Air Series of notebooks. This is Acer Aspire 3951, the first ever ultrabook from Acer.

As a result of Apple's supremacy in the ultra-portable notebook computers with very small size, Intel came up with the concept of ultrabook. In principle, for a device to be classified as an ultrabook, it must meet the following requirements: have a thickness of less than 20 mm, come equipped with the new generation of Sandy Bridge processors and the price does not exceed $1,000.

The new Acer Aspire fits within these limits. The new model weighs about 1.4 kilograms, has a thickness of 13 mm and comes with a 13.3 inch screen.

Technical specifications that are currently available are not complete, because Acer has not yet had an official announcement on this model and images with Aspire 3951 are taken from a site from Vietnam, they have no official character. However, there are some details of the technical facilities that can offer.

Thus, Acer Aspire 3951 comes with an Intel Sandy Bridge and hard disk storage capacity of 250 GB or 500 GB. Regarding this last aspect, we should mention that Intel initially suggested that such products come with ultrabook SSD included, so as to reduce the space of the integration in a spacious hard drive. The new model from Acer do not comply with this indication, 160GB SSD can be purchased separately and optional.

The design of this ultrabook follows closely the lines imposed by Apple, from the MacBook Air series. Thus, the keyboard consists of flat buttons with large spaces between them.

In terms of autonomy, Acer Aspire 3951 is pretty good. Maximum operating time is approximately 6 hours while in standby can last up to 30 days. The time to return from sleep mode is very good, just 1.7 seconds.
