Reviews for the Acer Aspire S7-191-73514G25ass
Welcome to the world of tiny high-resolution screens. Acer makes a move into the premium ultrabook market with the introduction of a 11-inch ultrabook with a wonderful 1080p touchscreen that wows. This will be an evaluation of the first attempt by Acer which brings beautiful construction elements to the masses with the Aspire S7-191.
The 11.6-inch model of the Acer Aspire S7 retails for Rs 87,599, which is not too bad all things considered. Remember, we talking about premium Ultrabooks here so ‘value for money’ doesn’t really apply. When compared to its rivals like the Dell XPS 12 and Sony VAIO Duo 11, the S7 is hands down the clear winner. Sure, you can’t use it as a true tablet but this is not a hybrid to begin with so the fact that you’re getting a touchscreen is a bonus. In fact, we feel if Acer had ditched the touchscreen and lowered the price; it would have been even sweeter. Our only gripes with the notebook are the not-so comfortable keyboard and that it gets quite noisy once the fans kick in. If you are shopping for a high-end, lightweight Ultrabook then we highly recommend the Aspire S7.

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.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
3517U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.9 - 3.0 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1150 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.
