Expert review by : Ardjuna Seghers (trustedreviews.com)

Acer Aspire S7 13-inch

 

A striking ultraportable made from metal & glass, with a glorious 1080p IPS touch-screen.

Beautifully designed, super-slim ; Superb Full HD touch screen ; Good connectivity

Noisy ; Poor battery life ; Sharp edges and awkward to open

Unfortunately there are some minor physical issues with the design. The laptop’s smooth base can slip off your lap if you’re wearing trousers made of a smooth material. The sharp edges of the chassis don’t just look edgy but can be a tad too much so...

Acer Aspire S7 review

 

Intel's much-vaunted Ultrabooks may have been quiet recently, thanks to the big noise Google made with its Chromebook Pixel and tablet-cum-laptops such as Dell's XPS10, but the format is still very much with us in the slim form of Acer's Aspire S7,...

Acer Aspire S7 review

 

A fashion forward Ultrabook

Attractive glass design ; High-end hardware configuration ; Full-day battery life

Screen limited to 1080p ; Too much bloatware

Remove the bloatware and you'll get a powerful notebook in a slim and modern design that will add a lot of visual appeal to your desk.

Acer Aspire S7-391 review - sleek Ultrabook with Core i7 chip

 

You'd be forgiven for assuming the Aspire S7 is a fragile waif, but it's well built and feels sturdy. The 13.3in touchscreen is firmly supported, and you can't help but pick up the S7 and turn it around, admiring the sheer quality of that slimline design.

There's room for improvement in battery life, but the slim, light design of the S7 is hard to beat if you're looking for a really portable laptop that has enough power to handle some serious work when you're away from the mains.

Looks great, but it has poor keyboard and battery life

Acer Aspire S7-391 review

 

Microsoft and hardware partner Acer are hoping to usher in a brave new world of touch-control Windows computing. An interesting part of that strategy is the touch-screen laptop, and the Acer Aspire S7-391 is the first such machine we've seen in...

All in all, the S7-391 is a nice laptop to use and show off. It would be nice to have an 8GB option and better battery life, but neither is essential for the vast majority of users. The design and overall usability are top notch. And it's an...

Acer Aspire S7 review

 

The thinnest laptop we've ever used

Super slim, extremely lightweight and portable, stylish, powerful enough to handle general use with ease, good keyboard

Lid isn't as sturdy as we'd like, trackpad is frustratingly unresponsive

Overall, the Acer Aspire S7 boasts one of the most stylish and desirable laptop designs on the market at present. Its 12mm thick chassis is slim and pleasant to carry around.

Acer Aspire S7 – Review

 

A few years ago I thought that to have a small lightweight easily transportable device you would have to get an iPad or an Android Tablet. Or get cross with a Netbook or break the bank and get a fancy Ultrabook. I settled for an Android Tablet a while...

The Acer Aspire S7 is a great device, it really showcases what Windows 8 is really about. Therein lies the problem, with a totally touch optimised interface you’d absolutely love the S7, for me the split personality of Windows 8 detracts from the...

Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook review

 

The Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook makes a sexy first impression

The S7 is a bit of this and a bit of that. The aesthetics, full HD display, and fast performance are serious contenders for your cash, but much like the pre-installed McAfee Internet Security Suite trial that’s almost impossible to get rid of without...
