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 S7-391 is a new Windows 8-toating ultraportable that features an eye-catching, stunningly thin design. It also has a touch screen, so it makes complete use of the new Windows 8 operating system. We did like the performance the S7 offered but battery life could have been better.

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

79.5%: 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.
