As if the Acer S7’s seductively slim figure and supremely good looks weren’t enough, this skinny vixen of a portable also boasts an impressive performance acumen. Still, we can acknowledge that this thin a device with this much power is bound to make allowances somewhere. When you toss in the included carrying case, matching white wireless mouse, and expansion dongles, the fetching S7 makes a pretty compelling case for its premium price tag.

That leaves us with a best-in-class laptop with two distinct and important weaknesses. A bad trackpad is a serious knock against any laptop, let alone one that sells for $1650. Mediocre battery life doesn't help. Then again, literally everything else on the S7 is phenomenal. The largest success of the S7 is that it's a statement against the continued commoditization of laptops. It's a precisely designed, engineered and built product that, despite its flaws, has an unmistakable identity supported by what is simply a quality machine. The S7 is proof that there's still plenty of room to grow in terms of design.

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.
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.
3517U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.9 - 3.0 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1150 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.
Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.
There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
86%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
