    Oh my 1.3cm thin! That’s very impressive, but I doubt the durability of gadgets which are so thin

      Well, I think durability is 80-20. 80% for the user and 20% for the manufacturer. No matter how durable a gadget or hardware is, if the user does not know how to take care of his stuff, life span would be short. But in fairness to Acer so far their laptops and notebooks are good. IMHO
