It's hard not to fall in love with the Acer Aspire S7's looks and fall in love we did. This Ultrabook isn't only about looks however. Intelligent design and hardware choices means that this device performs just as good as it looks. If only the battery life was better and the keyboard more ergonomic, this could have been the best Ultrabook yet.

The Acer Aspire S7 Pro certainly looks beautiful, but it has too many problems to justify the price. We’d hoped the keyboard might have improved from last year’s model, but it hasn’t, and the issue with the touchscreen is a whole new problem that makes the laptop less pleasant to use. If you need a smart business laptop, the HP Elitebook 840G1 is a much better buy.

The Acer Aspire S7-392 may have its drawbacks (low battery life and gaming capabilities), but it's still a quality machine with an excellent screen—a rare feat for an ultrabook. It's definitely buy-worthy, depending how important gaming and battery life are for you.

The Acer Aspire S7-392-54208G12tws is powered by an Intel Core i5-4200U processor and 8 GB of RAM ensuring smooth performance for most applications. It doesn't come with a secondary graphics card but the integrated Intel HD 4400 packs quite a bit on its own. Gamers might not be too happy but for normal users, this is more than enough. The hard disk space available is only 128 GB, but the SSD storage provides even better performance.
The 13.3 inch screen uses Active Matrix TFT Color LCD technology to provide crisp colors, strong contrast and excellent viewing angles. With a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels, HD quality viewing is available. Wireless connectivity is no issue with the built in wireless adapter 802.11 a/b/g/n and it is also Bluetooth 4.0 compliant. However, wired connectivity is not available as the thin laptop does not have an Ethernet port.
The laptop itself is very lightweight and mobile. Measuring only 1.27 x 32,26 x 22,35 cm (HxWxD), the weight of the device is only 1.3 kg. This makes it one of the lightest units out there with a 13.3 inch display.
Overall, the Acer Aspire S7-392-54208G12tws is a laptop that combines mobility and functionality without compromising too much from either side. It's suitable for business users and casual users alike but may not prosper well in the gaming industry.
