At Computex 2012, Acer has debuted its S5 ultrabook, featuring the Acer Green Instant On technology for fast boot and resume, and Acer Always Connect, which lets users manage their multimedia and data on all their devices at anytime.

The S5 is measures only 15mm at its thickest point. It weighs less than 1.35kg (less than 3lbs) and sports a 13.3-inch LCD panel, with a magnesium-aluminum alloy cover.

The S5 has a MagicFlip I/O port panel, concealed just below the hinge. This design feature enhances the overall slenderness and streamlined form of the S5, and when needed, a press of the MagicFlip key opens the panel to reveal a selection of I/O ports: HDMI, USB 3.0 and 20 Gbps Thunderbolt, Acer said.
