60% Review: Acer Aspire S 13 S5-371 laptop
Source: PC Authority English version
While I’d have liked to see a larger SSD than 128GB (the same as the UX305CA), if you’re in the market for a great-value ultraportable then the Acer Aspire S 13 is worth considering if its price drops. It isn’t as refined as some of its pricier rivals, but it’s a solid machine with a long-lasting battery and comfy keyboard.

90% Acer S 13 S5-371 review: One of the best mid-range ultraportable laptops you can buy
Source: Tech Advisor English version
Windows is back with a bang this year. Laptops like the Acer S 13 offer a low-cost alternative to Apple machines, with comparable stamina and portability at a little over half the price. Typical of Acer, the look is a little quirky, and we imagine some of you may prefer the all-aluminium style of the Asus ZenBook range. However, the Acer S 13 combines good keyboard quality, excellent battery life, a good screen and Intel’s Core i-series processors, and that quartet is hard to beat. This is one of the best mid-price ultra-portable laptops around.

80% Acer Aspire S13 (S5-371) Review

The Acer Aspire S13 (S5-371) is priced at Rs. 83,999 and has a 2 year warranty, which is quite aggressive considering the specifications and overall dimensions of the laptop. The S13 also has a good display and a powerful set of speakers which make it good for multimedia playback. If you're looking for this model online then chances are you won't find it, since it's currently only being sold through physical retail stores. With most premium Ultrabooks boasting of aluminium or carbon fibre bodies, the S13 has to make do with plastic, which is the only real downside to it.

90% Acer Aspire S 13 review
Source: Techradar English version
In an increasingly crowded Ultrabook market, the little Aspire S 13 manages to stand out among the competition. It's tough to find an affordable notebook with as many features. While the Acer has its flaws, its performance more than makes up for it, and the price for all those features is too good to overlook.

Ultra-portable, ultra-affordable
Source: Laptop Media English version
The Acer Aspire S 13 is a great all-rounder at the right price but the best part is that it holds a few key features that really stand out. We can start with the excellent build quality and even though the design is shared with the famous Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition and the Acer Aspire V5 series, it’s like a refreshing new look in the portable devices segment of the market. The result is sturdy, elegant and mobile chassis. Probably the only notable drawback in the design is the shallow keyboard.

Model: The Acer Aspire S13 S5-371-71QZ is an ultra slim laptop. Its chassis is made from aluminum for the top and the base and magnesium composite for its body. The Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64-bit system features a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U Skylake processor (Turbo Boost: up to 3.2 GHz), an Intel HD Graphics 520 GPU, 8 GB PC3 LPDDR3 SDRAM and a 256 GB SSD. Its 13.3-inch Full HD IPS display has a matte finish. Hence, it is not reflective and it is easier to use it in the sun. In addition, the display features a good brightness distribution and good viewing angles.

Wireless Networking is possible via Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0. The connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports, a USB-Type-C port, an HDMI port, a headphone/microphone combo jack and an SD card reader. The laptop is lightweight at 1.27 kg and its battery lasts up to 8 hours during a mix of web surfing, emailing and word processing.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

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.  

6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.

80.99%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
