Acer Brings the Christmas Cheer Early with Special Aspire S3 i7 Ultrabook Launch

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – If you made your way to Berjaya Time Square on the morning of 17 December and was wondering why there was a crowd at the entrance, it was because of a special launch Acer organized for the Aspire S3 i7 Ultrabook with Solid State Drive. Although the sale only started at 11am, eager customers arrived as early as 4am and patiently waited to get their very own Ultrabook, as the first 80 customers were given an RM1,000 discount and two tickets to the Lee Hom <Music Man II> Live in KL concert worth RM298 each, plus a Limited Edition Lee Hom Music Man figurine.

Arriving early and waiting for hours paid off for customers like 28-year-old Wong Wei Ching, who was the first out of 80 customers to get the new Acer Aspire S3 powered by the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 processor

“The Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook is my first Acer gadget. Its Instant On feature attracted me as I will be using the notebook for my business and I am always on the road. I need a notebook that is responsive and offers me a shorter waiting period. I decided to queue up for the Acer Ultrabook because I realized that the launch promotion is truly worthwhile,” said Wong Wei Ching, the first customer to leave Berjaya Time Square with an Acer Aspire S3, who made her to the queue as early as 4am and queued for 7 hours.

“We are pleased to introduced to Acer fans in Malaysia the second addition to the Acer Apsire S3 Ultrabook family. In celebration of this joyous season of giving, we seek to treat our customers with this special launch offer of RM1,000 discount. The key features of the Acer Aspire S3 such as the Instant On, Instant Connect, and long battery life remains, with a boost of power from the Intel 2nd Generation Core i7 processor and Solid State Drive. We hope Acer customers would enjoy this early Christmas gift from Acer Malaysia,” said Ricky Tan, General Manager, Acer Sales & Services Sdn Bhd.

After a final vote by the crowd, Choo Chin Hoong was crowned the champion of the 'Acer Aspire S3 Music Fan Challenge'

Other than the special launch offer for the Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook, Acer also held exciting on-ground activities throughout the day for customers to join in and have fun. Furthermore, Acer also had the final voting for the 'Acer Aspire S3 Music Fan Challenge', which saw 26-year-old Choo Chin Hoong walked home with a brand new Acer Aspire S3 (i5) and two Lee Hom concert tickets. To further entertain the crowd, there were also dance performances and fashion shows while Lee Hom fans stood a chance to win Lee Hom merchandise and concert tickets through activities such as the 'Best Fan Club Cheer' competition and guessing the name of Lee Hom's songs.

For those who weren't able to make their way to the launch, fret not, as Acer will continue to bring joy until 13 January 2012 by extending the Acer Aspire S3 promotion to customers nationwide. Customers who purchase the Acer Aspire S3 (i5 or i7) will be entitled to redeem two Lee Hom concert tickets through But do hurry, as there is only a total of 170 sets up for grabs.
