Reviews for the Acer Aspire S7-191

80% Acer Aspire S7
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The Acer Aspire S7 11.6" is easy on the eyes both in terms of visual appeal and the sharp IPS full HD display. It looks and feels like a luxury notebook, with a hint of James Bond since it's so small and sleek. We love the EL backlighting on the keyboard, though we never quite adjusted to the jarring feel of the keys' short travel.

The Acer Aspire S7-191 is one of the first Windows 8 UltraBooks with a touchscreen, and Full HD at that. The screen is stunning in terms of appearance as well as usability. Acer gets full marks for the sculpted aluminium casing. The performance is top-notch, as you'd expect from a Core i7-powered laptop. The touchscreen takes full advantage of Windows 8's UI. The snappy performance also derives from the two SSDs configured in striped RAID. Multimedia performance is great, with the 1080p IPS screen and loud, distortion-free speakers. Battery life is a negative point; you will probably always have to carry the additional battery along.

If Acer’s previous flagship Aspire S5 Ultrabook was a bit of a disappointment, the S7 more than makes up for it. Sporting glorious Full HD, touch-enabled IPS screens, super-slim profiles, original and striking designs, and even optional battery slices, these Ultrabooks appear to be truly worthy of their flagship status. We can’t wait to get them in for a full review.

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

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.

11.6": » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.1 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.
