I firmly believe that Acer’s Aspire S5 can do some damage if the company doesn’t mess up too badly on the build quality. If the trench-work is where it’s supposed to be to compete with LG’s and Lenovo’s products, Acer’s S5 has the chance to become a unique player amongst Ultrabooks. Thinner than thin enough, faster than fast enough. And thunderbolt. Can’t stop loving that.
Anyway. Those of you, who are interested in technical details of the Acer Aspire S5, read on. Everyone else: I suggest you head over to the Ultrabook Knowledge Base for a wider view over the Ultrabook landscape. Specs below are not nearly final and will probably change. Let me know if you hear anything that’s not noted here.

“[...] the S5 is much improved, with clickier keys and much more depth to the key wells. We’ve noticed an across-the-board improvement in key travel in several of the ultrabooks we’ve tried, which is a very welcome change.” arstechnica.com
