Yesterday, Lenovo treated us to details about its upcoming ultrabooks. Soon, we may also hear from Acer about its ultrabook efforts—or so say the folks at DigiTimes, who wrote up a story based on information from unnamed sources.
If we're to believe DigiTimes, Acer will unleash its very first ultrabook at the Internationale Funkausstellung 2011 trade show in Berlin. The show will start tomorrow and continue through September 7, so Acer will have plenty of time to, er, get funky—or whatever it is they do over there. (I'm told Funkausstellung is German for "radio show," but I refuse to believe it. That sounds much less exciting.)
In any case, you'll likely see a pleasantly low price tag on that laptop. Acer Chairman J.T. Wang teased an ultrabook priced "as low as $799" last month, and he mentioned a September release time frame. In today's story, DigiTimes adds that Acer's pricier ultrabook models will cost up to $1,199.
