Reviews for the Acer Aspire S5-391-53314G25akk

70% Acer Aspire S5 Review
Source: PC Advisor English
We applaud the addition of Thunderbolt, which expands connection possibilites with a growing range of high-speed peripherals. MagicFlip, the motorised port bay is also a very neat idea, if applied with an annoying mechanism that always sounds stressed. The rest of the laptop is near-standard ultrabook fare, down to the sub-standard display and copycat components specifications shared with almost every other model. Thunderbolt may bring the S5 closer in spec to the MacBook Air that inspired it, but an extra £100 buys a real MacBook Air with the same 256GB storage capacity, but a decent screen and far better build quality.

70% Acer Aspire S5 review

Acer has produced its best-looking laptop yet with the Aspire S5, and created one of the world’s thinnest 13in Ultrabooks while it’s at it. Premium touches like the (for now) rare inclusion of a Thunderbolt port also help to set it apart, especially since it and the rest of the S5’s connectivity are hidden in an innovative motorised door called MagicFlip.

70% Acer Aspire S5 Ultrabook Review
Source: T Break English
The Acer Spire S5 is a pretty decent ultrabook, with a great chassis design and overall snappy performance. While the benefits of the MagicFlip panel are moot, there’s no denying that the 11mm profile of the Aspire S5 is impressively thin. Of course, what hurts the Aspire S5 is the simple fact that for its high price point, the competition offers much more. The slightly more expensive Samsung Series 9 ultrabook has much higher resolution screen and better battery life. Same goes for the entry level MacBook Air which has slightly better overall specs compared to the Aspire S5, but costs less.

Comment

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
