Acer Aspire TimelineU M5 Review

Acer Aspire TimelineU M5 Review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it
More than last year, 2012's ultrabooks have been and will continue to be about tradeoffs: low-res screens vs. high-res, snappy SSDs vs. capacious HDDs, power-sipping IGPs vs. muscle-bound GPUs, and so on.

Sony, Asus, Samsung, Dell, and Toshiba show how OEMs are dealing with Windows 8.

 

"The Windows-related announcements are flying fast and thick from the IFA electronics show in Berlin this year. We've already taken a look at HP's offerings and some of the Windows RT devices, but there's still a lot of ground to cover. Looking at all of these products at once shows us not just what the store shelves are going to look like this holiday season, but also how PC OEMs are responding to Microsoft's fundamental rethinking of how Windows should work. Windows 8 uses touch to redefine the operating system for better or for worse, and in the same way, touch features are also redefining what we can expect from our PCs in the next few years."
