Acer is coming out swinging with their new line up of Ultra-thins, the Acer Aspire B113 is a new 11.6-inch notebook for professionals. It is technically the consumer version Acer Aspire V5, so it has a lot in common but has some slightly better hardware, the main difference is that the B113 comes with a 4400mAh battery and the V5 comes with a ridiculous 2500mAh mini battery. Technically, the two devices are very similar but we hear that it’s only going to cost 420€, which makes me wonder who will pick up the V5.

This 11.6-inch ultra-thin comes with a 1366 × 768 that also sports a matte finish. Under the hood the device ships with an Intel Pentium 967 with two 1.3 GHz cores, or the 2nd generation Intel Core i3-2377M running at 1.5 GHz. So even does have a “Sandy Bridge” CPU, it’s still an interesting device, but if you’re looking for more power the V5 does come with a 3nd generation Ivy Bridge Core i5 option.

Acer continues to offer 4GB of installed RAM and a 500 GB hard drive. There are two USB 2.0 ports and a USB 3.0 port, HDMI, 5-in-1 card reader, VGA port and an Ethernet port along side a 1.3-megapixel webcam, and wireless-N. The battery provides, as mentioned, a quite good capacity of 4400mAh, which should offer around five hours on a single charge. It will be running Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional depending on the edition. The basic version seems to come sporting a Pentium 967, which is listed at 420€. If you’re looking for the Core i3 version expect to pay around 499€ and if you’re looking for Windows 7 Professional add another hunderded to that.

The device weights 1.38 pounds which makes the system nice and light. If the fact that the system currently isn’t being offered with the latest Ivy Bridge processor have no fear there is a 3rd generation Core i5-3317U on the way in the near future.
