And there's the rub: If the Acer Aspire S7-191-6640 had been a few millimeters thicker with a larger capacity battery and the same 2.63 pound weight, it might have given serious competition to the Editors' Choice Asus Zenbook Prime Touch UX31A-BHI5T. The Asus UX31A-BHI5T has a larger screen and includes a mini-VGA-to-VGA adapter, so it's better suited to corridor dwellers than road warriors, but otherwise the systems are similar in specs, capabilities, and pricing. The S7-191-6640 is just a touch better for the road warrior, but it's not enough for a clear-cut victory.

One of the things that really gets me going about the ACER S7-191-6640 is the price and value offered. At only $999.99 right now you're getting a great piece of hardware. The top shell of the S7-191 is magnesium, inside there is an Intel i5-3317U processor, 4Gb of Ram, and 128Gb of storage in RAID 0! You're getting a lot of bang for your buck with just that. Let's look at the bundle and the value it adds. The ACER S7-191-6640 includes a Bluetooth mouse, RJ45 to USB adapter, mini-HDMI to VGA adapter, and a carrying case! The bundle alone could easily set you back $100 or more, it's just an added bonus. All the previously mentioned features aside, the best feature is by far the touch screen on the ACER S7! My previous experiences with Windows 8 weren't great. Once I was able to play with the ACER S7-191-6640 with a touch screen it's a totally different experience!

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.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.
While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.
There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
