One lucky (and presumably wealthy) Star Trek fan is going to win an eBay auction for a limited edition Acer Aspire R7 Ultrabook. Acer and Paramount Pictures partnered to create the Star Trek-themed Aspire R7, of which there are only 25 models in the wild. One of those, and only one, will be up for bidding on eBay, with the proceeds going to two charitable organizations: The Mission Continues and Save the Children.
Go ahead and use the Aspire P3 as your primary PC, Acer says.
Windows 8 has PC makers gung ho about hybrid form factors that are able to transform from an Ultrabook to a tablet and vice versa, but one of the problems is that some of these systems end up offering half-baked experiences. Acer says that isn't the case with its new Aspire P3, a "new form Ultrabook" the company claims is powerful enough to be your primary PC, yet also able to function as a tablet.
