Reviews for the Acer Aspire S7-391-53314G12aws

Small Business Notebook Review: Acer Aspire S7 UltraBook
Source: Small Business Computing English version
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.

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.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.» 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.

82.67%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
