Acer's 15-inch Ultrabook debuts at IT Show

The Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 is selling for S$1,298 (US$1,035) in Singapore. 
Only a day after it was officially unveiled at the CeBit tradeshow in Germany, Acer's 15-inch Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 is already on sale in Singapore at the IT Show tech bazaar.
Despite being a 15-inch model, this Acer laptop is dubbed an Ultrabook and claims to resume from sleep in 1.5 seconds. With its 20mm profile, the M3 is actually slimmer than another recent Ultrabook contender--the Samsung Series 5 Ultra (14-inch). Like Samsung's laptop, the Acer M3 comes with an optical drive and discrete graphics.

The M3's base configuration is similar to other Ultrabooks, as it comes with an Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of RAM. It also uses a 500GB hybrid HDD, though Acer has mentioned that SSD options are available. You can read our impressions of this laptop here.

A number of other new Ultrabooks are on display at the IT Show. The Dell XPS 13 is another debutant while other recent models such as the Samsung Series 5 Ultra and Toshiba Satellite U840 are all on sale at the tech bazaar.
