Many notebooks calling themselves Ultrabooks have been too large, too heavy or too expensive, but this model from Acer stays true to the vision. Unfortunately, it also matches the rest of the Ultrabook stereotype: it's awfully expensive, connectivity is limited, and there's no scope for upgrading any of the internal components. Acer has overcome some of the Ultrabook specification's constraints, most notably with its use of a breakout dongle for VGA and Ethernet ports. On the other hand, it has compounded some of the platform's problems, for example the liberties taken with the keyboard layout.

Enough about the future, though. The latest Acer Aspire S7 is a hardworking, flexible, and stylish ultrabook with good battery life. That’s not to say that Acer can’t improve there, though. We’d love to see future models improve battery life even futher.

If you're looking for a svelte laptop to show off, yet still be able to do real work in Windows 8, the Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 is the ultrabook you want at the top of the list. It's the current pinnacle of the ultrabook trend and shows the brilliance that the PC makers can return under Intel's increasingly stringent standards for ultrabooks.

The Acer Aspire S7-392-6411's performance punctuates the system's excellent feature set, thinness, design, build quality, low weight, and general excellence. It is more than a worthy replacement of the Zenbook Prime Touch as our new Editors' Choice for high-end ultrabooks. Sure, you are paying a bit more for the thin chassis and sturdy build materials, but unlike the VAIO Pro 13, the Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 doesn't skimp on battery life in the quest to be the thinnest, lightest laptop around. The Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 therefore gains one of our highest overall scores and Editors' Choice award.

For the most part, Acer’s updated S7 is a triumph of improved design and internals. Battery life is a lot better (although screen brightness is sacrificed), the keyboard’s travel no longer feels as shallow as a reflecting pool, and fan noise is no longer all that noticeable.

82% Glass-topped ultrabook delivers performance, style

Even though the basic design comes from the very first wave of Windows 8 laptops in late 2012, the Acer Aspire S7 still looks and feels cutting-edge. You'll get similar performance and slim bodies from other PC makers, sometimes for a bit less money, but aesthetics and feel count for something, and this is certainly a laptop that stands out from the crowd. At $1,400 it's a bit of a reach; for $1,199, it'd be a killer deal.

The Acer Aspire S7 (2013) is an attractive, slim Windows 8 Ultrabook that offers superior performance, speedy boot times and above average battery life. You also get a 1080p touch screen display, which is just icing on the cake.

With the Aspire S7-392-6411, Acer has shown that it can incorporate reviewer and user feedback. The company improved both the keyboard and the battery life from the first go-round, all while retaining the sleek, sexy chassis we adored in the first version. The 4th generation Intel processor adds a nice boost in performance, and the 1080p touchscreen really pops.

Comment

Model:

Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook is an ultra slim vision in all white aluminum with a silver border. Covered in Corning Gorilla Glass 2, look and feel appear premium. Fortunately, sturdy well made hinge allows a maximum opening angle of 180 degrees. The devices only weighs 1.3 kg. A 1.6-GHz, fourth-generation Intel Core i5-4200 CPU and the Intel HD Graphics 4400 GPU with 128  MB VRAM can handle heavy graphics load to some extent. The 13.3 inch screen features a resolution of 1080p and vivid colors and supports 10 point touch input.

The keys of the gray Chiclet keyboard are well spaced and backlit. The ambient light sensors adjusts the backlight automatically. The touchpad is spacious and works fluidly. Overall, it is a comfortable machine for prolonged word processing and web browsing. Acer's ‘Purified Voice’ technology should improve audio on video or voice calls. It basically reduces the background noise and evens out volume reduction, improving the experience when communicating. Disappointingly, this audio improvement does not affect the onboard speakers, which lack basses and are unfortunately muffle-prone, because they are located on the underside of the machine.

The battery life is good. While there may be other machines with similar or slightly better specs at the same price, the Acer Aspire S7 has been produced with care and is possibly the best Ultrabook currently on the market.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

13.3":

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.

1.3 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
