Acer Aspire S3-392G Ultrabook review

 

Acer's S3 has always been one of the more affordable Ultrabook models on the market, partly because it used a conventional hard drive rather than more expensive solid-state storage.

The Acer Aspire S3 has a lot going for it, including an attractive, slimline design and high-quality IPS display. It also provides good performance for an Ultrabook in this price range, thanks to its hybrid storage drive and nVidia graphics. Battery...

REVIEW: Acer Aspire S3-392G

 

Acer may be in a distant fourth place behind the top three PC manufacturers – Lenovo, HP and Dell – but its latest Aspire S3-392G Ultrabook proves that it can produce attractive designs at a competitive price. Updated for 2014, the Aspire S3 now...

Very Poor Build Quality

  (Rating Hidden)

Acer Support replaced the mainboard on my laptop three times in seven months but still they failed to correct its faults. Acer Support have now told me to raise the matter with their retailer who has just ceased trading. Beware Acer pc's.

Acer Aspire S3-392G NX.MDWEK.003

 

It is compact and very comfortable to use when sat on the sofa.

The battery life is appalling considering it is regarded as an ultrabook and although it has a dedicated 1gb of ram for graphics, it really struggles to play games.
