Acer has parted the curtains to reveal its new M5 ultrabook range.
Available in both 14in and 15in models (both packing Intel's latest Ivy Bridge silicon), the Acer Aspire M5 features a thinner display bezel and a sleek metallic silver chassis with a black backlit chiclet keyboard.
A 1GB Nvidia GT 640M will be running the show in the graphics department and both models measure in at around 20mm thin - thicker than other ultrabooks, but including an optical drive.
The 15in model also packs in dedicated number keys, and an 'ample' amount of hard drive space or SSD options will also be available for both models.
Acer's Instant-On feature also promises a nippy 1.5 seconds resume from sleep and the battery is slated to last for around 8 hours.
Pricing and availability will be announced ahead of the expected mid-June release date.
