The Acer Aspire S3 will launch this October, the company says, offering Australians access to the Internet in just 2.5 seconds thanks to its instant-on capabilities.

It'll rival the likes of Apple's Macbook Air range '” the thinnest portable notebooks yet '” sporting a display of 13.3'³, width of just 13mm and weight of 1.35 kilograms.

In comparison, Apple's entry-level 11'³ Macbook Air is 1.7cm thick, 30cm wide and weighs 1.08kg.

'The Aspire S3 is truly designed to meet the changing needs of notebook users,' Product Manager for Consumer Notebooks at Acer Australia, Aaron Jambrovic, said.

'We've taken the essential features from smartphones and tablet PCs, such as fast startup and Internet connectivity, and a slim form to provide a fresh experience as well as set a major milestone in the history of Acer's notebook development.'

Other features of the device include Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors, hard drives of 240GB or 320GB and support for Dolby Home Theater v4, providing the ultimate sound experience.

HDMI output, in-built 1.3MP camera and support for Bluetooth are also present in Acer's slimline device that runs Windows 7.

In Australia, Acer says pricing will start from $1,199 for the entry level model, with 'all major retail' providers to sell the models from October.

Computer giants are expected to begin flooding the market with the so-called lightweight and extremely portable ultrabooks in the coming months.

Asus, Lenovo and Toshiba are all expected to release their own models in the near future, although Australian availability is yet to be confirmed.
