acer aspire s3 ultrabook black friday deal

Looking for a Black Friday Ultrabook deal? We just tracked down another great one. You can pick up the Acer Aspire S3 for $499, and unlike most laptops these days, you can pick between Windows 7 and Windows 8.

I’ll be up-front: I very much dislike Windows 8. In my opinion, Windows had an opportunity to move from a confusing (but deeply rooted) interface to something genuinely intuitive. Instead, they took a step sideways (instead of forward) and just created another confusing mess that they’re asking us all to relearn.

When friends and family come to me asking about buying a new laptop, I warn them that it’s almost impossible to buy a new computer today without Windows 8 — and since I’m still running Windows 7 on all of my own computers, I won’t be able to give them the typical, “click this, press that, go here,” step-by-step support if they need help.

But alas, there are still a few holdouts in the world of Windows 7, and I just tracked down an Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook deal, just in time for Black Friday, which you can get in either flavor for $499! Let me lay it out for you:

Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook (Ivy Bridge – last generation)

  • 13.3 inch screen @ 1366*768 resolution
  • Intel Core i5-3337U processor @ 1.8GHz
  • 4GB RAM
  • Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • 500GB HHD (w/ 20GB SSD for quick boot and loading)

For at $499 you’re getting $100 (17%) off of the current list price, and a solid set of specs in my book. And the best part is that you can choose Windows 7 or Windows 8! Grab the deal here:

Acer Aspire S3 (Windows 7) | Acer Aspire S3 (Windows 8)

If you’re looking for reviews, be sure that you’re looking at the right Ultrabook — the Acer Aspire S3 has seen a transition from the first Ultrabook platform (Sandy Bridge) to the second Ultrabook platform (Ivy Bridge). Tips on telling the two apart are here.
