Acer has produced what we can easily call its most attractive laptop ever with the Aspire S7 13-inch Ultrabook. This incredibly slim and sleek laptop sports a stunning design that combines glass and metal to great effect, without sacrificing power or connectivity. It also offers a glorious 1080p IPS screen with 10-point touch and good speakers, yet can be had for a very reasonable price. Unfortunately, what did get sacrificed to make the Acer Aspire S7 13-inch earn its slimness was battery life. And though the cooling is very effective, it can also get seriously loud. Combined with a keyboard that will take some getting used to, this means the S7 doesn’t take the spot of our favourite Windows 8 Ultrabook as it otherwise might have.

Acer’s S7 is sleek, sexy, and quick. It’s incredible that the company has managed to craft a laptop that performs so well while also keeping the chassis small, light, and attractive. The attention to detail is not on par with design leaders like Apple and Asus, but the broad strokes are as good or better. It’s refreshing to see a unique design.

Ultimately, though, we do wonder whether the traditional Ultrabook design will work against the S7. There are a myriad other products coming out that blur the line between laptop and tablet, and one can’t help but think that these will make for more compelling purchases. After all, if you can use your laptop as a tablet as well, why would you settle for a traditional laptop with touch features?

If you're in the market for a Windows 8 ultrabook and the relatively high price doesn't scare you off then you'll no doubt dig the Acer Aspire S7. With its list of speedy components, amazing display and svelte size, it pretty much is the Windows 8 ultrabook to beat right now.

Thin and light construction, along with a clean design and an excellent touchscreen should make the Aspire S7 a popular choice among users who are after a premium Windows 8 Ultrabook. Its keys could use more travel, the touchpad could be a little more solid and the battery life a little longer, but it's a fantastic little unit that's fun to use.

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.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.
78.14%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
