X313 has an Intel Ivy Bridge CPU
Acer has pulled the wraps off a new Travelmate X313 convertible. The X313 has an 11.6-inch screen (1366x768) and tips the scales at 1.74 pounds.
Under the hood, the X313 uses a 2GHz Intel Core i5-3339Y Ivy Bridge processor. The processor is paired with 4GB of RAM and 120GB of storage is onboard. Battery life for the aluminum-clad tablet is listed at a meager 6 hours.

Acer equips the portable device with a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 720p resolution front camera for video conferencing. The X313 also features integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a full-size USB 3.0 port.
The convertible can be turned into a notebook computer by adding an optional keyboard case or can be used as a desktop machine with an optional cradle.
Acer seems to be targeting the X313 directly at
Microsoft’s Surface Pro 2
and its pricing reflects that. The tablet will start at $950 when it launches later this month.

I think the resolution is OK

I don't know why they're not going with current gen hardware, but in terms of resolution I find the Surface to be unusable. Windows doesn't scale well, and as a designer and developer I like to use native resolution and 100% DPI.
On these ultra-high res tablets and notebooks, everything is just too small for me to handle. And when I bump up anywhere from 125-200% DPI, everything is too big or too fuzzy. The sweet spot for me is 1920x1200 on a 24" which is about 94 DPI. I'm happy with around 112 DPI on notebooks but higher than that and it's uncomfortable for me. I can't be alone in this!

Anything under 1024px vertical is unusable as a tablet if you try to use it in portrait mode, and that is important for tablets. There are almost no websites or applications that fit without scaling, and on Windows the browsers do not have as good zoom/scale functionality as mobile browsers.
And BTW, you should also get prescription glasses.
