Last night the Microsoft Store in Times Square, NYC officially opened, and with it came the launch of Windows 8. A bunch of new devices went on sale for the first time, including the very attractive Acer Aspire S7. Ever since this ultrabook was shown off at IFA we’ve been anxiously awaiting for it to become available. The Aspire S7 is one of the most beautiful Windows 8 devices we’ve seen.

The Aspire S7 comes in two flavors: 11.6″ and 13.3″. Both models are extremely thin and sleek. They come in just around .47 inches thick, and around 2.5 pounds. They have touchscreen 1920×1080 displays, Intel Core i5 processors, 4GB of RAM, and run Windows 8 Pro. Check out the video for a full hands-on preview of this sexy machine.
