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.

12 millimeter bullet. How many notebooks can fit in a height of twelve millimeters? With its high-end ultrabook, Acer presents this question. SSD-Raid, Intel Core-i7 ULV CPU, IPS Full HD touch screen and unibody style - any other questions?

At 11.9mm, the Acer Aspire S7 is incredibly slim and looks fantastic in its crisp, white suit. The addition of the touchscreen means that navigating through Windows 8's big tiles is delightfully simple. Sadly though, its performance, while good, isn't as blazingly fast as you'd hope for considering the high price.

I remember reading Acer’s CEO showing some disappointment when Microsoft reveal their Surface tablet. However, if Acer is capable of building a laptop as beautiful and powerful as the Aspire S7 then there really isn’t much for them to worry about. Aside from the trackpad and the fan noise, the Aspire S7 is the finest Windows 8 based laptop that I have used. The screen is just phenomenally good while the Core i7 and the dual SSDs in RAID0 configuration make the S7 insanely fast to work on.

70% Acer Aspire S7 13-inch review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
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?

As if the Acer S7’s seductively slim figure and supremely good looks weren’t enough, this skinny vixen of a portable also boasts an impressive performance acumen. Still, we can acknowledge that this thin a device with this much power is bound to make allowances somewhere. When you toss in the included carrying case, matching white wireless mouse, and expansion dongles, the fetching S7 makes a pretty compelling case for its premium price tag.

That leaves us with a best-in-class laptop with two distinct and important weaknesses. A bad trackpad is a serious knock against any laptop, let alone one that sells for $1650. Mediocre battery life doesn't help. Then again, literally everything else on the S7 is phenomenal. The largest success of the S7 is that it's a statement against the continued commoditization of laptops. It's a precisely designed, engineered and built product that, despite its flaws, has an unmistakable identity supported by what is simply a quality machine. The S7 is proof that there's still plenty of room to grow in terms of design.

We didn't think it would be Acer who would set a new standard for Ultrabook design, but credit where it's due, the Aspire S7 is one of the most stunning laptops we've seen in recent years. Dual-torque hinges, an impossibly-thin body and a Gorilla Glass top combine to create a chassis that's extremely well built and beautiful to behold.

Acer has designed an ultrabook that’s thin, light, attractive, sturdy, and powerful. But it’s not a perfect portable computer. The Acer Aspire S7 is hampered by lousy battery life, an odd keyboard, a high-resolution display that’s both a blessing and a curse (depending on how you use it), and a jet engine-like exhaust fan.

In its definition of what qualifies as an ultrabook laptop, Intel says an ultrabook with a touch screen is allowed to be 2mm thicker than one without. Astonishing: The thinnest and sexiest ultrabook we've seen is a touch-screen showpiece for Windows 8, as speedy as it is convenient and a sure-fire hit for the executive suite. But it's not cheap, and battery life could be better.

Acer Aspire S7 review (13-inch): great Ultrabook, a shame about the battery life
Source: Engadget English
With each successive generation, Acer comes closer to building the perfect Ultrabook. Its first model, the S3, had a low-rent feel, with short battery life, trailing performance and a stiff trackpad. The S5 improved on that with a nicer design and blazing speeds, due to a RAID 0 disk setup. But thanks to a low-res screen, among other shortcomings, it ultimately felt overpriced for what it was.

The Acer Aspire S7-391-9886 is a media performance laptop for the traveling artist, similar to the main audience for the Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Retina Display) and the current Editors' Choice for ultrabooks, the Asus ZenBook Prime UX32VD-DB71. All three give you 1080p (or greater) resolution in a 13-inch portable package, as well as good multimedia benchmark performance. The S7-391-9886 is certainly the way to go if you want the slimmest possible touch-screen system to commute with you on the train. However, the other choices may be better if you're a plane commuter, since they have better battery life overall. The Asus UX32VD-DB71 in particular comes with discrete graphics and a much less dear price tag of $1,299. Even the other Windows 8 systems with touch screen (Dell XPS 12 and HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4t-1100) have better battery life than the S7-391-9886. Again, if you have $1,700 to spend, you'll probably be happy with the S7-391-9886, but for a little more ($200), you're in upgraded MacBook Pro 13-inch (Retina Display) territory. And that laptop will make it through a continental plane trip with many minutes to spare.

With a killer 1080p touch screen, sexy-as-heck design and blazing SSDs, the Acer Aspire S7 seems poised for greatness. But in a $1,649 ultraportable, we expect at least 5 hours of battery life -- and supplying a little over 4 hours is a real shame. Road warriors will really need to spring for the optional extra-capacity battery to get the most out of this system.

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.

80% Acer Aspire S7 MS2363 Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
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.

Acer Aspire S7 Review
Source: Slashgear English
This machine is Acer’s best effort yet. It’s an Ultrabook that makes the Windows 8 experience an enjoyable one – and on a personal note, it’s the first in many moons that’s made certain Apple-exclusive family members of mine think about trying a switch (having seen it at Thanksgiving, of course). You’ll certainly have to weigh the benefits of having this top-class machine in your position against the amount of cash you’re going to have to dish out since it’s certainly not the most budget-minded beast on the market, but after that, it’s all smooth sailing.

All in all, the S7-391 is a nice laptop to use and show off. It would be nice to have an 8GB option and better battery life, but neither is essential for the vast majority of users. The design and overall usability are top notch. And it's an eye-catching system, sure to draw attention whenever you pull it out.

Small Business Notebook Review: Acer Aspire S7 UltraBook
Source: Small Business Computing English
Acer didn't skimp, however, when it came to performance. The Aspire S7 models come with a latest-generation Intel Core i5 processor or even a fast Core i7 chip in the highest end models. (All models come with 4GB of RAM.) That means all your business productivity apps will have plenty of horsepower at their disposal—even demanding apps such as video- and photo-editing programs. Try that with a tablet.

An aesthetically-pleasing and well-designed laptop that doesn’t break the mould too much, but proves there’s still a lot of life in the Ultrabook format. Battery life is a let-down, but otherwise it’s a great competitor to Google’s Chromebook Pixel - and unlike that grand folly it includes an operating system that actually works.

Initially, we were sceptical about the idea of a touchscreen laptop that doesn't fold into a tablet. And yet, the Aspire S7-391 convinced us that it will win some people over with its good processing power and touchscreen that's more for occasional use than full-on tableting. The biggest issues with this ultrabook are the audio components and fan noise.

All in all, the S7-391 is a nice laptop to use and show off. It would be nice to have an 8GB option and better battery life, but neither is essential for the vast majority of users. The design and overall usability are top notch. And it's an eye-catching system, sure to draw attention whenever you pull it out.

This Ultrabook is definitely one of the best I've used, though the keyboard still leaves some to be desired. It's got the best screen I've seen an Ultrabook equipped with, a 1080p IPS screen. It's a gorgeous screen to look at and should be capable of doing color-sensitive work such as photo editing. If you do need a capable yet portable machine that has an IPS screen, then I think you may have found your match. I would still advise you to find one in a store where you could test out the keyboard for yourself. I can recommend this machine, unlike its smaller brother. It really is a premium machine.

The Acer Aspire S7 sure does win at Windows 8. It's a lovely machine that we're very fond of. But it's the price that costs this Ultrabook scores on the board. Trim it back in line with its competitors and it'd pick up a whole extra star. If price is no object, the S7 scores high, but for the more realistic buyer the price just isn't right, so we can't award a Brucey bonus to this Ultrabook as it stands.

The Acer Aspire S7-191 is an 11-inch Windows 8 Ultrabook laptop that features a 1080p touch screen display, a speedy solid-state drive, a very sleek design and an extended battery. The display is a little dim for our tastes and the battery life without the extended battery is sub-par. This 11-inch Ultrabook looks to take advantage of Windows 8's touch-friendly interface while being as slim and lightweight as possible to make it extremely portable. It definitely is trying to compete with the popular Apple MacBook Air, but the battery life is an issue (at least without the extended battery).

There's no arguing that the $1,199 Acer Aspire S7-191 is one of the sleekest and smallest notebooks we've seen. The aluminum lid and deck look and feel sturdy, and the 11.6-inch 1080p touch screen, while relatively dim, is certainly sharp and responsive. We also like that Acer includes an external battery to get the S7-191 past the 6-hour mark, but getting the endurance you deserve shouldn't require a bulky appendage.

And there's the rub: If the Acer Aspire S7-191-6640 had been a few millimeters thicker with a larger capacity battery and the same 2.63 pound weight, it might have given serious competition to the Editors' Choice Asus Zenbook Prime Touch UX31A-BHI5T. The Asus UX31A-BHI5T has a larger screen and includes a mini-VGA-to-VGA adapter, so it's better suited to corridor dwellers than road warriors, but otherwise the systems are similar in specs, capabilities, and pricing. The S7-191-6640 is just a touch better for the road warrior, but it's not enough for a clear-cut victory.

One of the things that really gets me going about the ACER S7-191-6640 is the price and value offered. At only $999.99 right now you're getting a great piece of hardware. The top shell of the S7-191 is magnesium, inside there is an Intel i5-3317U processor, 4Gb of Ram, and 128Gb of storage in RAID 0! You're getting a lot of bang for your buck with just that. Let's look at the bundle and the value it adds. The ACER S7-191-6640 includes a Bluetooth mouse, RJ45 to USB adapter, mini-HDMI to VGA adapter, and a carrying case! The bundle alone could easily set you back $100 or more, it's just an added bonus. All the previously mentioned features aside, the best feature is by far the touch screen on the ACER S7! My previous experiences with Windows 8 weren't great. Once I was able to play with the ACER S7-191-6640 with a touch screen it's a totally different experience!

Acer has made an impressive thin and light ultrabook with the Aspire S7-191 that even packs in a touchscreen display. Add to this a high resolution display and fast storage system and one would think this would be a top choice. There are lots of sacrifices made by Acer for it though. This includes poor battery life without the extended battery that runs its portability and the screen is very difficult to use outdoors due to limited brightness.

Acer Aspire S7-391-6413

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.

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.

Acer Aspire S7-392-6411

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.

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.

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.

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.

I'm just going to come out and say it right now: If there has ever been a notebook worthy of the term "Ultrabook," then the Acer Aspire S7-392 is that notebook. From great performance and battery life, to excellent portability and design: the Acer Aspire S7-392 truly has it all. Not only is it the most powerful Ultrabook we've had the pleasure of testing, but it's been one of the lighter and more portable designs. It's whisper quiet, it runs for hours on end, and it looks stunning. For all of the reasons above, and the results shown throughout the review, I have no choice but to award this system the Editor's Choice award. This system is bar-none, the best Ultrabook we have had come through our lab, and I can't wait to see what Acer brings to the table next.

Acer's premium Ultrabook gets a fourth-generation Core i7 CPU, which gives it much better overall battery life without really sacrificing performance. It's a very good unit, but it has some issues that could be annoying to some users, including touchpad that 'clicked' every time we picked up the laptop from the palm rest area.

The $899 Acer Aspire R7 certainly looks unconventional, but this hybrid has its benefits. Its 15.6-inch, 1080p display offers bright and crisp visuals; the new Haswell processor gives the system about an extra hour of battery life, and the new active pen adds versatility for creative types. Plus, the bottom-mounted speakers pump out clear and full-bodied tunes.

There's little not to like about the Acer Aspire S7. With its angular design and vibrant white metallic casing the device offers one of the most attractive and unique designs in the market. It's lightweight form factor, strong performance and above average battery life makes the device a perfect candidate for both business and travel. With improved battery life and even better performance the Acer Aspire S7 is one of the best ultra-thin notebooks on the market.

Acer's updated S7 13-inch ultrabook offers some impressive improvements to an already good system that makes it a solid choice for those looking at a very thin ultrabook. There are some systems that are lighting or slightly thinner, but the design is much more solid and well executed from a company typically known for lower priced systems.

Acer Aspire S7-392-54208G12tws

The Acer Aspire S7-392-54208G12tws is powered by an Intel Core i5-4200U processor and 8 GB of RAM ensuring smooth performance for most applications. It doesn't come with a secondary graphics card but the integrated Intel HD 4400 packs quite a bit on its own. Gamers might not be too happy but for normal users, this is more than enough. The hard disk space available is only 128 GB, but the SSD storage provides even better performance.

The 13.3 inch screen uses Active Matrix TFT Color LCD technology to provide crisp colors, strong contrast and excellent viewing angles. With a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels, HD quality viewing is available. Wireless connectivity is no issue with the built in wireless adapter 802.11 a/b/g/n and it is also Bluetooth 4.0 compliant. However, wired connectivity is not available as the thin laptop does not have an Ethernet port.

The laptop itself is very lightweight and mobile. Measuring only 1.27 x 32,26 x 22,35 cm (HxWxD), the weight of the device is only 1.3 kg. This makes it one of the lightest units out there with a 13.3 inch display.

Overall, the Acer Aspire S7-392-54208G12tws is a laptop that combines mobility and functionality without compromising too much from either side. It's suitable for business users and casual users alike but may not prosper well in the gaming industry.

It's hard not to fall in love with the Acer Aspire S7's looks and fall in love we did. This Ultrabook isn't only about looks however. Intelligent design and hardware choices means that this device performs just as good as it looks. If only the battery life was better and the keyboard more ergonomic, this could have been the best Ultrabook yet.

Source: Expert Reviews English
The Acer Aspire S7 Pro certainly looks beautiful, but it has too many problems to justify the price. We’d hoped the keyboard might have improved from last year’s model, but it hasn’t, and the issue with the touchscreen is a whole new problem that makes the laptop less pleasant to use. If you need a smart business laptop, the HP Elitebook 840G1 is a much better buy.

The Acer Aspire S7-392 may have its drawbacks (low battery life and gaming capabilities), but it's still a quality machine with an excellent screen—a rare feat for an ultrabook. It's definitely buy-worthy, depending how important gaming and battery life are for you.

The second-generation Acer Aspire S7 radiates quality and elegance in a way we're most used to seeing from Apple and high-end Asus models. With plenty of competition in the $1,500-or-so "Haswell" clamshell crowd, the 13.3-inch Acer Aspire S7-392 edges ahead of most options. Its faults are few, and its many clever enhancements make this ultra-thin ultrabook a winner.

Source: Tweaktown English
The one area that this system has a major advantage is cost. Due to the smaller SSD and slower processor, this model can be found on the Internet for around $1,250, about $250 cheaper than the faster model. We awarded its big brother the Editor's Choice award for it truly being an Ultrabook. Thanks to the lower cost, better screen, and similar performance, we have no choice but to award this system our Editor's Choice award as we'd like this model much more than the previously reviewed model, which we already love.

At $1,399, Acer's Aspire S7 392-6807 packs a gorgeous, quad-HD screen and capable performance into a drool-worthy package. Unfortunately, there just isn't enough high-res content suitable for this display yet to make up for the trade-off in battery life. For $100 less, you can get the same sexy design with a nice full-HD screen in the older Aspire S7-392-6832, which boasts 2 more hours of juice.

Overall, the Acer Aspire S7-392-5410 is an great high-end ultrabook that simply has a lot of competition. There are a few drawbacks, like bloatware, the odd keyboard layout, and the overly sensitive trackpad. We figure that the majority of users who can spend $1,400 on a laptop will be happy with the S7-392-5410, especially those who need a full-fledged laptop rather than a tablet with an optional keyboard, like the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. The Toshiba Kirabook 13 i7s Touch holds on as our top pick for high-end ultrabooks, due to its 2,560-by-1,440-resolution touch screen, higher-performing Core i7 processor, slightly better selection of I/O ports, and a longer two-year warranty.

Acer reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

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

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


Intel Core i5:

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

3337U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.7 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

4210U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.7 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

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.

4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.


13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

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


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.

1.3 kg:

This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


80.09%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
