Electronics vendor Acer this week pulled the curtain back on its Aspire P3 Ultrabook, which is actually a hybrid device that transforms into a tablet.

Weighing around 1.39 kg and measuring 19.75mm thick, the device is aimed at delivering the performance of an Ultrabook while also allowing for increased market demand for the slate form factor. The touch-screen display can be used in laptop mode or detached from the keyboard-case entirely.

Acer introduced the Aspire P3 alongside a range of other products, including the Acer Aspire R7, Aspire V Series touch notebooks and Iconia tablets, in a clear focus on the mobility space.

"Customers are moving to a touch-centric way of computing for most of their everyday tasks, such as Web browsing, checking email, and entertainment," said Oliver Ahrens, president, Acer Europe.

"The new Acer Aspire P3 makes touch computing even more powerful by providing customers with the responsive performance, fast boot times, and long battery life they want in a mobile PC. Plus, the form factor of the Acer P3 adds the productivity to ensure all-day usefulness beyond the fun in tablet mode."

The Acer Aspire P3 is designed to be used as a main PC fulfilling all the everyday functions and performance requirements that go along with a productivity device. The Intel Core i3 and Core i5 processors are aimed at delivering that performance, and Acer claims a longer battery life of up to six hours. Closing the case puts the Acer Aspire P3 into sleep mode, and opening it wakes the device up in only a few seconds, according to Acer.
