Reviews for the Acer Aspire S7-391-6413
If neither of those items matter to you in a touchscreen ultrabook, then the Acer Aspire S7 would make a fine addition to your arsenal as its light, powerful and has a great-looking 1080p screen. If its battery was better, then we could certainly recommend the S7 easily. As of now, we think you should really put some thought and consideration on what exactly you want out of the S7 before you decide to throw $1,400 at a retailer for the ultrabook.

Being one of the largest personal computer vendors in the world, Acer continues to offer a wide variety of laptops in its product line. Back in June 2012, Acer introduced the Acer Aspire S7, their first touchscreen ultrabooks –featuring a full-HD touch display and a luxurious design with Intel Core i5 processor. Made of a mixture of aluminum, white plastic and glass, the Acer Aspire S7 is one of the best looking laptops available out there. Its chassis looks and feels premium and its input devices are outstanding. With a 13.3 inch full-HD display, it offers great portability without sacrificing the performance of the laptop.The screen size isn’t too big or too small to give us visual comfort. Its perfect. A very thin design is an added value for this ultrabook design. Thus, with the thin design and weight of only 1.3 kg, it looks elegant and light to carry. Thanks to the fast Intel Core i5 processor and 4 GB RAM, it excels in performing both multimedia and work tasks.
However, the downside of it is that the battery life wasn't on par with what is typically expected from an ultrabook. Compared with most ultrabooks which manage at least 5 hours comfortably, this laptop is a little disappointing. On the other hand, Acer's Aspire S7 is still a great performing laptop in such a small and compact package. Considering the solid build quality and good specs, this laptop is definitely a better choice over its competitors in their price range. Nevertheless, if you are looking for an ultrabook with Windows 8 in it, this might be worthy to look at.
