Acer Aspire 3951 Ultrabook (MacBook alternative)

Looking at the latest developments in the computing industry, Acer appears to have made a breakthrough as a preferred source for ultra-thin portable laptops desired by many consumers across the globe. The recent introduction of Acer Aspire 3951 Ultra-book is perceived as a direct challenge towards Apple MacBook Air which has dominated the market segment for sometime now. Apple MacBook Air has had much success among Thunderbolt laptops with reservations to its Windows counterparts; in fact, ever since the likes of Dell Adamo succumbed to competition, MacBook air has commanded the industry leading other laptops in its genre. It was until sometimes early this year that Intel showed a renewed interest to introduce a new genre of portable computing referred to as Ultrabooks. Apple had clearly gained authority as a major force in production of ultra-thin and portable laptops consumers are dying for.

In order for a laptop to get an Ultrabook tag, it must have a thin, light and elegant design that’s not more than 20mm thick including a second generation Sandy Bridge processor. Acer with its latest Aspire 3951 Ultrabook, appears to be among the first manufacturers to make a breakthrough in the market segment; Acer Aspire 3951 Ultrabook has borrowed some design features from its MacBook counter part which isn’t a bad thing at all considering MacBook is its main challenger in the field. Although Acer Aspire 3951 Ultrabook looks more of a MacBook clone featuring a rounded off wedge like shape and a chiclet keyboard, consumers need to perceive the device as a better alternative to the MacBook. In addition, it boasts of an aluminum construction with a singular bottomless trackpad and an amazing silver and black color scheme comparable to that of MacBook.
The 13 inch Acer Aspire 3951 Ultrabook is powered by a core i7 Intel processor and has comes in 250GB, 500GB or 128 Solid State Drive (SSD) hard drive options. It’s anticipated Acer Aspire 3951 will first be unveiled in Germany at an estimated price equal to that of expected industry players such as Asus Ultrabooks; however, the arrival of other devices in this genre such as the Asus UX21 will prove a major battle for Acer’s success.
