Acer Aspire S 13 is a competent execution of the affordable ultrabook formula many manufacturers now use. It has a nice 1080p display, strong Core i5 processor, and lightweight design, all for an affordable $750 price of entry. It’s a perfectly reasonable PC, and anyone who purchased one could use it for years without much complaint.

The laptop looks sleek and striking with its textured nano-imprint cover and obsidian black or white color.

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's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
