Acer's new Aspire M3 ultrabook, packs Nvidia's latest GeForce GT 640M graphics card, that can deliver incredible performance and run Battlefield 3 with ultra graphics settings, with an average of around 22 frames per second according to Cnet. I know it's not good enough for multilayer mode but at the very least playable for single-player campaign. Sliding down from ultra to high settings can give you decent 30 FPS for smooth gameplay.

The ultrabook can run Crysis 2 on ultra settings with 23 frames per second, and around 32fps when you knock the settings down just a tad.

>Ultrabook
>Has an i3 in it

What bullshit is that? Whack a fuckin' i7M and see the FPS creak up a notch.

Put a i7 3920XM in it.

I think that there must have been a good reason on why they didn't do this. Intel has strict requirements in order for a notebook to be classified as an 'ultrabook'.

Strict requirements should be it should be as powerful as possible. Thus the term 'ultra'.

LOL!

I think the 'ultra' in 'ultrabook' means ultra-thin and ultra-light. Not ultra-powerful!

also, the more powerful the processor, the lesser battery life you get. I guess that's why this doesn't have an i7 in it. In order to quality as an Ultrabook, it needs to have 5 hours of battery.

IMO, go in between with the i5 :P A bit more power, a bit less battery.

but then that wouldn't be an ultrabook anymore.

ultrabooks aren't meant for gaming anyway. There's the entire Acer Timeline series that are capable of doing Battlefield 3 (yes, with i5 and i7) - and the entire Timeline series have pretty thin profiles too.
