As noted, it has a 13.3-inch 1366x768 glare-type screen. The connectivity options includes 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB ports and HDMI output.

As far as the features go, Acer is promising that this one will need 1.5 second to get out of sleep state and 2.5 seconds to connect to network as well as a special cooling that is designed to put heat out of palm rest, trackpad and your lap. According to Acer, the battery in this one should be enough to keep it running for up to seven hours depending on the SKU configuration.
