Acer Aspire S7-391-6810

 

The slim, premium-feeling Acer Aspire S7 was one of the very first Windows 8 laptops I spent a significant amount of time with in the weeks before the official release of Windows 8. My colleagues and I agreed at the time that this 13-inch touch-screen...

The Acer Aspire S7 is a premium-looking ultrabook, with great performance, strong battery life, and a high-res touch screen.

The expensive S7 is priced well beyond most other touch-screen Windows 8 laptops. The touch pad is not as responsive as it should be.

One of the few standout products from the first wave of Windows 8 laptops, the Acer Aspire S7 proves that Apple does not have a monopoly on great design.

Acer Aspire S7-391-9886

 

The Acer Aspire S7-391-9886 ($1,649.99 list) is one of the thinnest ultrabooks we've reviewed, especially given its touch screen. It comes with a quicker Core i7 processor than the run-of-the-mill ultrabook, and its SSD drives with RAID 0 striping make...

Very thin. Very light. 180-degree angle on screen. Clamshell design. 10-point touch screen. Comes with mouse. Clean desktop mode screen. Dual friction on hinge. Standard laptop design with touch screen. 1080p screen. IPS display

Mediocre battery life. Limited ports, requires dongles for VGA and Ethernet. Integrated graphics. Persistent cooling fans in high performance mode. Lots of premium features make this a pricey laptop

Though the Acer Aspire S7-391-9886 is a very good choice for the "money is no object" buyer, some quirks and a brief battery life keep this ultrabook from earning our highest honors.

Acer Aspire S7-391-9886

 

The Acer Aspire S7 is an absolutely stunning Windows 8 Ultrabook with a full HD touch screen and fast performance, but short endurance holds it back.

Beautiful thin and durable design; Gorgeous 1080p touch-screen display; Accurate audio; Really fast SSDs; Runs cool

Short battery life with standard battery; Expensive; Sharp palm rest

Click to EnlargeWith a killer 1080p touch screen, sexy-as-heck design and blazing SSDs, the Acer Aspire S7 seems poised for greatness. But in a $1,649 ultraportable, we expect at least 5 hours of battery life -- and supplying a little over 4 hours is a...

Acer Aspire S7-391-9886

 

In its definition of what qualifies as an ultrabook laptop, Intel says an ultrabook with a touch screen is allowed to be 2mm thicker than one without. Acer says thanks, but no need: The Aspire S7-391-9886 is a remarkable 11.9mm (0.47 inch) thin,...

Vanishingly thin and light ; 10-point touch screen with wobble-free hinge ; Sharp 1080p display ; Swift performance

Premium price ; Shallow, quirky keyboard ; Lackluster battery life

Astonishing: The thinnest and sexiest ultrabook we've seen is a touch-screen showpiece for Windows 8, as speedy as it is convenient and a sure-fire hit for the executive suite. But it's not cheap, and battery life could be better.

Acer Aspire S7-391 review - sleek Ultrabook with Core i7 chip

 

You'd be forgiven for assuming the Aspire S7 is a fragile waif, but it's well built and feels sturdy. The 13.3in touchscreen is firmly supported, and you can't help but pick up the S7 and turn it around, admiring the sheer quality of that slimline design.

There's room for improvement in battery life, but the slim, light design of the S7 is hard to beat if you're looking for a really portable laptop that has enough power to handle some serious work when you're away from the mains.

Acer Aspire S7-391 review

 

Microsoft and hardware partner Acer are hoping to usher in a brave new world of touch-control Windows computing. An interesting part of that strategy is the touch-screen laptop, and the Acer Aspire S7-391 is the first such machine we've seen in...

All in all, the S7-391 is a nice laptop to use and show off. It would be nice to have an 8GB option and better battery life, but neither is essential for the vast majority of users. The design and overall usability are top notch. And it's an...

Acer S7-391: a serious edge for Windows 8

 

Acer isn't kidding when they describe the $1699, S7-391 ultraportable as cutting edge. This Windows 8 laptop is so thin (11.9 mm) and stiff, it could double as a weapon in the wrong hands. Did I say wrong hands? Assuming you can afford it, there are no...
