Acer Aspire S3-391-6046

 

The Acer Aspire S3-391-6046 ($648 list) proves that you don't have to start at $899 to get a decent ultrabook. To keep the price down, it uses an older second-generation Intel Core i3 processor, but that CPU is still faster than the AMD E series APU,...

Inexpensive ultrabook. Light weight. Responsive multitouch trackpad. Two USB 3.0 ports. No confusing USB 2.0 ports. Full size HDMI port. 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi

Uses last generation Intel Core processor. Non DX11-compatible graphics. No touch screen. Small arrow keys

The Acer Aspire S3-391-6046 gives you a full-blown Windows 8 ultrabook at a decent price. If you want a thin, light, reasonably fast ultrabook to learn Windows 8 on, this is worth a look.

Acer Aspire S3-391-6676

 

Editors' note: After testing and reviewing several subsequent Ultrabook laptops , we have decided to revise our original rating for this product. Most notably, other Ultrabook laptops now offer full SSD hard drives for the same price, instead of Acer's...

With a slim, MacBook-Air-like design at a reasonable price, the Acer Aspire S3 is an example of how the Ultrabook laptop category can work if done right.

The construction is a step below superpremium, connectivity is limited, and battery life is on the low side of acceptable.

The Acer Aspire S3 is the closest you can get to the look and feel of a MacBook Air for less than $1,000, but it requires a few compromises.

Excellent Budget Ultrabook

Macbook Air alternative

 

Need to play more with touch pad for sensitivity. So far no problem. Loving it so...much. This is a real Mac Air alternative.

Thin, sleek body and light weight. Easy to carry.SSD hard drive keep it run cool and quiet all the time.Quick wifi connection and turning on from hibernate /sleep mode.Battery life is decent, 3.5 - 4.0 hrs as described

The touch pad is so sensitive.Many software are not compatible to Win 8

Light but powerful ultrabook

 

This ultrabook itself and its power adapter are both very light so it is easy to carry both. It takes less than 8 seconds to boot and less than 5 seconds to shut down. Although it has only an HDMI port, inside the box I found an HDMI-to-VGA adapter!...

Not a bad pc. Although you should know that my 128 GB ssd was half full with OS and basic programs installed. I will definitely need an upgrade soon.
