Reviews for the Acer Aspire S7-393-75508G25EWS

84% Acer Aspire S7 (2015) Ultrabook Review | Notebookcheck
Sharp as a knife. Slim, elegant and streamlined - the looks of the S7 will stop everyone from simply passing by Acer's premium range. Will the pricey first-rate configuration of WQHD screen and SSD Raid ultimately be convincing? We examined that in this in-depth test report.
Acer Aspire S7 (393, Broadwell) review – elegant and smart business solution for the right price
Source: Laptop Media English version
Aside the great design and premium feel, the Aspire S7 is priced just right. You can even see that this machine outperforms most of its competitors and accommodates Intel Core i7-5500U CPU that’s capable of handling some more demanding applications. This, however, comes at a price – you can see on the heat map that the temperatures on the surface are a bit high, but still far away from the user’s hands so it will not interfere with your work. It’s not only designed to look good, but it’s also functional and smartly built with some extra features to make up for a flawless user experience.

No major changes have been made to the 2015 version of the Acer Aspire S7. Its chassis is identical to that of last year's model, with the same pros and cons. Nevertheless, this new configuration demonstrated minor improvements in performance, also minimising heat and noise. It's a solid ultrabook for anyone willing to part with a grand.

80% Acer Aspire S7-393 review – a bump to Broadwell
Source: Ultrabook Review English version
The Acer Aspire S7-393 is an iteration of the "if it's not broke, don't fix it" policy and that's because it is identical to the S7-392, with two exceptions: the hardware platform and the Wireless module. And since the S7-392 was one of the best premium 13 inchers in its days, the S7-393 remains one as well today, with its sleek aluminum and glass made body, its excellent display and fast performance, corroborated with a fair price. But it's starting to show its age here and there, when compared to its more recently designed rivals.

Model: The Acer Aspire S7-393-75508G25EWS is lightweight and compact and comes in a clean looking package. The entire chassis comes in silver while the cover on the Acer Aspire S7-393-75508G25EWS is glossy white. The hinge system on the Ultrabook allows for the screen to fully open up to a 180 degree angle. The 13.3 inch Active Matrix TFT Color LCD display features Full HD resolution and uses IPS technology. Colors are good with high clarity enabling users to truly enjoy the wide opening angles. There is a backlit keyboard and responsive touchpad to ease navigation.

The Windows 8.1 system comes with an Intel Core-i7-5500U dual core processor clocked at 2.40 GHz, 8 GB DDR3L SDRAM, Intel HD 5500 GPU and 256 GB SSD internal storage. Other capabilities on the Acer Aspire S7-393-75508G25EWS consist of a webcam with microphone, an HDMI out, two USB 3.0 ports and a card reader. Users will find the laptop a breeze to carry round as it only weighs in at 2.97 lb (1.35 kg) and has a height of 0.5 inches (1.27 cm). Nevertheless the Acer Aspire S7-393-75508G25EWS comes with superb battery life rated at 10 hours of usage with a 4-cell Lithium-Polymer pack. This ultrabook is intended for mobile users such as students with little compromise on functionality.

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP). 

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

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.  

5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.

81.4%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
