Its that time of the year again. Time to take down the Christmas lights, time to savor the last of the holiday cookies, time to wake up to a crisp new year. And at Las Vegas, the new year is a little newer with the 2012 International CES or Consumer Electronics Show, where consumer technology companies are unveiling their freshest products.

Taiwanese electronics company Acer has unveiled the world’s thinnest Ultrabook in CES 2012, with the Aspire S5. The Aspire S5 is an ultra-slim device that measures only 15 mm and weighs less than 3 lbs (than 1.35 kg).

Jim Wong (President, Acer): The Ultrabook is much more than just a product segment. It’s a new trend that will become the mainstream for mobile PCs.

The Aspire S5 will start shipping in Q2 2012. You can find a full list of the ultrabook’s specifications on Acer’s website here.
