The Acer Aspire M3 Ultrabook as well as the Aspire V5 series notebook have received make-overs of sorts. They now flaunt touch panels and support for the Windows 8 OS. Both the devices run the latest generation Intel Core processors, also known as Ivy Bridge and employ 10-point multi-touch displays to ensure smooth navigation.

First up is the Aspire M3, a 15.6-inch Ultrabook that measures 22mm in thickness and tips the scales at 2.3 kilograms. Besides an Intel Core processor, it takes advantage of the Nvidia GeForce GT640M GPU to render decent graphics. Its built-in speakers and Dolby Home Theater v4 should make for an improved acoustic experience.

The notebook belonging to the Timeline series of the company, claims to allow users to stay productive throughout the day and comes with Acer Green Instant-On and Acer Instant Connect. It employs a chiclet keyboard, complete with a separate numeric keypad.
