required. The Aspire P3 is the ideal mobile computing device for
users who create and consume content. 
Weighing only 3.06 pounds and measuring 0.77-inches thin, the newly
defined mobile PC delivers on the promise of Ultrabooks with
excellent performance and long battery life in a highly portable form
factor. It adds the many benefits of tablet with a design that allows

keeping in touch and having fun.

"Customers are moving to a touch-centric way of computing for most of
their everyday tasks, such as web browsing, checking email, and
entertainment," said Sumit Agnihotry, vice president of product
marketing, Acer America. "The new Acer Aspire P3 Ultrabook makes
touch computing even more powerful by providing customers with the
responsive performance, fast boot times, and long battery life they
want in a mobile PC. Plus, the form factor of the Acer P3 adds the
productivity to ensure all-day usefulness beyond the fun in tablet
mode." 
Productivity Powerhouse  
The Acer Aspire P3 provides true Ultrabook performance, so customers
can use it as their main PC for handling everything from everyday
computing tasks to more demanding ones such as creating presentations
and sharing multimedia content. The new mobile powerhouse can also
run multiple apps, such as video conferencing while reviewing
spreadsheets and documents, further boosting productivity.  
The responsive and fast Intel Core i3 and Core i5 processors deliver
the performance needed to take on these tasks while providing more
efficient power consumption for longer battery life of up to six
hours(1). Closing the case puts the Acer Aspire P3 into sleep mode,
and opening it wakes up the device in only a few seconds(2). Since it
runs Windows 8, it can handle Office programs as well as legacy
Windows programs that are important for many businesses.  
The chiclet keyboard built into the cover is full-sized, so customers
can comfortably use it for productivity tasks such as writing
documents and creating spreadsheets. The Acer Aspire P3 comes with an
optional stylus that fits in the case for customers who want the
convenience of pen-based input. Plus, it comes with a full-sized USB
3.0 port so customers can conveniently connect a mouse, printer, and
other consumer devices. 
These features make the Acer P3 ideal for businesses that are
outfitting their mobile workforces, as well as schools or consumers
who work in Office applications. The Acer P3 would make an excellent
option for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives that are becoming
more popular at businesses and schools.
