Reviews for the Acer Aspire S7-392-9460
Source: Computer Shopper
The second-generation Acer Aspire S7 radiates quality and elegance in a way we're most used to seeing from Apple and high-end Asus models. With plenty of competition in the $1,500-or-so "Haswell" clamshell crowd, the 13.3-inch Acer Aspire S7-392 edges ahead of most options. Its faults are few, and its many clever enhancements make this ultra-thin ultrabook a winner.

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.
