At its grand event today, Acer has announced the Aspire S 13, a recent laptop that wants to compete with the 13-inch Apple MacBook Air, but also Dell's XPS 13. And it wants to do all that while being significantly cheaper than its competitors.

The Aspire S 13 will have a 13.3-inch Full HD IPS display, which can optionally be touch-enabled. You can configure it with up to 8GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) as well as up to a 512GB SSD, and an optional battery will create it allegedly last a whopping 13 hours on a charge (the default power pack only nets you 9 hours of usage). Powering the thing are Intel's 6th generation Core processors (you can choose between i3, i5, and i7), and it will have a Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C port, two 'normal' Universal Serial Bus (USB) 3.0 ports, HDMI, and an SD card slot.

It will be offered in Obsidian Black or Pearl White, when it goes on sale in May starting at $699. The Aspire S 13 weighs just 1.4kg and it's 14.4mm thin.
