Let's have a peek at the Acer Aspire S5, the ultrabook with the mechanical "MagicFlip" dish in the back with ports that whirrs out when you need to plug in and don't need all that pesky space this near-thinnest on the market notebook works with.

The Windows RT and Windows 8 tablets came as almost a complete surprise to hardware partners in the US and Taiwan, Reuters' sources at the firms have insisted, with Sinofsky's calls failing to confirm either then name or the specifications of the slates. However, at least one high-profile PC manufacturer has suggested that Microsoft's plans for the Surface brand are short-lived.
