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.
Someone should go ahead and que up a continuous loop of Gary Glitter's "Do You Wanna Touch Me" hit from the 1970s (which again became popular in the 1980s courtesy of Joan Jett) because almost every time we see a new product announcement these days, it's the first song that comes to mind. Manufacturers are launching touch-friendly Windows 8 devices at a breakneck pace, including Acer, which just unveiled a line of Aspire M5 Ultrabooks and V5 notebooks, both with touch support.
Acer is pitching its America-bound Aspire V5 Series of ultrathin notebooks at "students and consumers looking for impressive performance, style, and full-featured mobility." That sounds a lot like an Ultrabook, only the Aspire V5 isn't, though it is a slender machine at a mere 0.79 inches and 4.6 pounds for the 14-inch model, and 0.83 inches and 5 pounds for the 15.6-inch build.
