Reviews for the Acer Aspire S7-392-54208G12tws

69% Just short of amazing

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.

60% Acer Aspire S7-392 Pro review
Source: Expert Reviews English Archive.org version
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.

Comment

Model:

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. 

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

13.30":

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.


74.75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
