Earlier this week, the entire studio audience of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" received 13.3" Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook devices as part of the show's 12 Days of Giveaways promotion. Ultra-responsive and ultra-sleek Intel-inspired Ultrabooks are powered by Intel Core processors in a design that's less than an inch thick and wakes up in a flash. Ultrabooks allow users to experience the powerful performance that keeps up with them while creating, exploring and enjoying, all at mainstream price points. For folks who were not lucky enough to be in "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" audience, they can get their own Intel-inspired Ultrabook and a $100 gift card with purchase at Walmart (offer available in store and online for a limited time). For more information on Intel-inspired Ultrabooks, please visit the Intel Newsroom and also check out the list of other holiday deals on Intel-based devices.
