Hi folks! So after CES 2012, many announcements were abound, but the most interesting thing in my opinion, was the ultrabook announcements.

Of all the anouncements, I found the Acer Aspire S5 to be the most interesting. This ultrabook stands the best chance based on it’s hardware specs, to go head to head with the MacBook Air hardware. Notice I say hardware, not software.

This is because when it comes to operating systems, you’re always going to have one side loving Apple and the other side loving Windows. So if you’re a loyalist either way, the hardware might not make a difference to you. However if you are willing to use either Mac OS X or Windows 7, then I suggest waiting for the Acer Aspire S5 to hit stores and giving it a try.
