Reviews for the Acer Aspire S13 S5-371-767P
Source: Ultrabook Review
The Aspire S13 is one of the better ultraportables you can get these days for a decent amount of money. It offers a good screen, fast hardware and decent battery life, all packed in a thin and fairly well built package. It's not as stylish or as silent as the premium 13-inchers on its class, and it doesn't offer some of the latest features, but considering how much it costs, this notebook is a great buy for the average user.

CommentIntel 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.
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.
