Default Ultrabook Head to Head: Acer Aspire S3 vs. ASUS UX31E

Intel first launched the ultrabook concept back in May of this year, and the initial reaction ranged from cynicism to excitement. On the one end of the spectrum were those who just saw the ultrabook as a way for Intel to try and sell more high-margin ULV parts, along with others calling the whole thing a MacBook Air knockoff. Those who showed more enthusiasm for the platform had a different take on things: who cares if it’s just a rebranding or a knockoff? If it’s a way to get less expensive laptops with a great aesthetic and SSDs for everyone, sign me up! Naturally, there are plenty of others who fall more in the middle. For this group, it doesn’t matter what marketing might say; “show us what you’ve got” is their motto, and if you build a good product at an appropriate price, they’ll be happy to recommend and/or buy it.

Today, we have two more ultraportables to put under the microscope. The first is the big brother to the UX21E that we already reviewed, the ASUS UX31E. The second comes from Acer and targets a lower price point by trimming a few extras. We’ll also have some discussion of the broader ultrabook market and who might benefit from a look at the various offerings. If you’re thinking an ultrabook (or an ultraportable) might be the right choice for your next laptop, or if you just want to see what they have to offer, read on, as we'll also provide a detailed "ultrabook state of the industry" along with the other benchmarks.
