Acer Does It Again: Consumers Have the Opportunity to Win an Acer Aspire S7 Touch Ultrabook Every Day Through the End of 2012

With More Than 1.2 Million Facebook Fans, Acer Continues to Reward Its Loyal Followers With Fun Contests and Wildly Popular Prizes That Keep Them Engaged With the Acer Brand

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- Acer America unveiled the Acer S7 Select sweepstakes, the latest generation of its exciting Facebook campaigns for devoted fans. Acer fans have the opportunity to select friends that best match the attributes of the Aspire S7 -- stylish, brilliant, cool, smooth, strong, inspirational and connected -- and a chance to win the product every day on Facebook through the end of 2012.(1) Consumers may visit the Acer USA Facebook page to enter.

"We've conducted four unique Facebook sweepstakes in the last year that have culminated in more than one million engaged fans interacting with Acer on a daily basis, and we're doing it yet again with the Acer S7 Select program," said Hugues Gontier, senior director of marketing, Acer America. "The Acer Aspire S7 has been widely praised as one of the most innovative and gorgeous touch-enabled Ultrabooks in the industry and we're thrilled to give our Facebook fans the opportunity to enter for a chance to win an Aspire S7 Ultrabook every day through this holiday season."

As thin as a tablet, the Aspire S7's elegant design is eye catching. It features a gorgeous glossy white Gorilla Glass 2 cover that is smooth to the touch, beautiful to the eye and thin, yet super strong. With an all-aluminum unibody design, it is exceptionally light, yet resilient and durable. It is just .5 inches thin and weighs only 2.87 pounds with a 13.3-inch full high-definition (1920 x 1080) touch screen.

Optimizing its touch capabilities, the Aspire S7's lid tilts back a full 180 degrees, allowing it to be used flat against a table or desk, much as one would use a tablet. Its unique dual torque hinge design enables the display to stay upright and stable even when used for touch input.

Acer's new innovative thermal design, TwinAir cooling (patent-pending), keeps the Ultrabook cool and comfortable to use. In addition, a light-sensing keyboard automatically detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the keyboard backlight brightness.
