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 S7-392-6411

 

If you're looking for a svelte laptop to show off, yet still be able to do real work in Windows 8, the Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 is the ultrabook you want at the top of the list. It's the current pinnacle of the ultrabook trend and shows the brilliance...

Acer Aspire S7-392 Ultrabook

 

Acer's Aspire S7 gets a fourth-gen Intel Core i7 CPU and more built-in ports, but it has a couple of issues

Looks good and feels good overall ; Long battery life ; Very good screen

Keyboard could be better ; Touchpad clicked whenever we picked up the unit ; Power button location ; No accelerometer

Acer's premium Ultrabook gets a fourth-generation Core i7 CPU, which gives it much better overall battery life without really sacrificing performance. It's a very good unit, but it has some issues that could be annoying to some users, including...

Acer Aspire S7 review (2013): the second time's a charm for Acer's flagship Ultrabook

 

It wasn't easy writing a conclusion (much less a headline) for our original Acer Aspire S7-391 review. The company's third Ultrabook was near-perfect,

Nice build materials ; Great viewing angles ; Fast performance, longer battery life ; Improved touchpad ; Now runs quietly

Enormous power brick ; No 2,560 x 1,440 option in the US ; Power button is difficult to press ; Expensive for what it is

The second time's a charm for Acer: the company's refreshed S7 Ultrabook addresses all the things we disliked about the original. Just be prepared to pay a premium over competing laptops with similar specs.

Acer Aspire S7-392-5410

 

The über-light Acer Aspire S7-392-5410 ultrabook is attractive and powerful enough to be your all-day travel companion.

Thin and light. Strong build quality, with sturdy materials. Dual-friction hinge. Full-size HDMI port. 8GB of memory and 256GB SSD. 2.4 and 5GHz Wi-Fi support. Long battery life. Very good benchmark test performance.

Sensitive touchpad. Odd keyboard layout. No included Ethernet or VGA dongle.Some bloatware.

Overall, the Acer Aspire S7-392-5410 is an great high-end ultrabook that simply has a lot of competition. There are a few drawbacks, like bloatware, the odd keyboard layout, and the overly sensitive trackpad. We figure that the majority of users who...

The glass-topped Acer Aspire S7 gets a new CPU

 

Better battery life adds to the appeal of this slim Windows 8 touch-screen ultrabook.

The ; has the same great design we loved last year, but the S7-392-6411 has a more battery-friendly Intel Haswell CPU.

The touch pad and keyboard still don't rate for a $1,400-and-up laptop, and other high-end ultrabooks cost less.

The Acer Aspire S7, a Windows 8 launch favorite that holds up nicely, gets a needed update to the latest CPUs for better battery life.

Acer Aspire S7-392-6411

 

The Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 is the current pinnacle in thin, light, powerful, and all day ultrabook laptop computing.

Very thin and light. Strong build quality/sturdy materials. Dual friction hinge. Very good benchmark test performance. Speedy wake from sleep. 8GB of memory. 2.4 and 5GHz Wifi support. No Bloatware. Very good battery life. Full size HDMI port.

Odd keyboard layout. Could use a larger SSD array. Thinness is expensive.

The Acer Aspire S7-392-6411's performance punctuates the system's excellent feature set, thinness, design, build quality, low weight, and general excellence. It is more than a worthy replacement of the Zenbook Prime Touch as our new Editors' Choice for...

It's hard to believe, but we're getting close to the one-year mark in the Windows 8 era. Microsoft's still-controversial operating system was released in October 2012, and that was long-enough ago that we're now seeing the second generation of some of...
