Other features include an array of bundled application, an Intel HD Graphics 4000 subsystem (which means that the chip is a third generation, Ivy Bridge model), an 11.6in touchscreen display with a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, two USB 3.0 ports, Wi-Fi, Windows 8, a 28Whr battery that can power the laptop for five hours, Acer's InviLink Wi-Fi technology, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, Dolby Home Theater v4 and Bluetooth.

The small form factor introduces a number of constraints which makes things slightly more difficult. You need, for example separate converters for your LAN and your VGA connectors (which means that you won't be able to use a USB port and your HDMI one).
