Review Acer Aspire S7-392 Ultrabook

 

Evolution. Acer refreshed its stylish 13.3-inch Aspire S7. Besides a Haswell Core i7 and a WQHD display, the ultrabook also gets a larger battery. Our review shows whether the Aspire S7-392 can beat its predecessor and if it can even ascend to the...

Very good application performance; Good battery runtimes; Bright and high-contrast WQHD display; Well built; Large opening angle of the display (180°); Fast RAID 0 SSD; Always quiet; DisplayPort; VGA, Fast-Ethernet and USB 2.0 via adaptor

Glossy display; Throttling under maximum load

Acer Aspire S7-392-5410

 

The über-light Acer Aspire S7-392-5410 ultrabook is attractive and powerful enough to be your all-day travel companion.

Thin and light. Strong build quality, with sturdy materials. Dual-friction hinge. Full-size HDMI port. 8GB of memory and 256GB SSD. 2.4 and 5GHz Wi-Fi support. Long battery life. Very good benchmark test performance

Sensitive touchpad. Odd keyboard layout. No included Ethernet or VGA dongle.Some bloatware

The Acer Aspire S7-392-5410 ($1,399.99) is one of the few ultrabooks that matches or even exceed the thin and flashy design of the Apple MacBook Air laptops. It has all-day battery life, a new Intel Core i5 processor, a full HD screen, and yet it still...

Acer Aspire S7 (2014) Review

 

Acer's Aspire S7 Ultrabook squeezes a WQHD display and snappy Haswell performance into the same seductive body as its predecessor, but battery life suffers.

Gorgeous, high-res display; Attractive, premium build; Fast SSD; Bloatware-free

Shorter battery life than previous version; Underside runs hot; Tinny audio

Acer Aspire S7 (2013) Review

 

The latest iteration of the Acer Aspire S7 improves upon its unique and portable chassis design with a boost to battery life and performance.

attractive portable design ; vibrant 1080p touch-enabled display ; strong performance

mediocre speakers

There’s little not to like about the Acer Aspire S7. With its angular design and vibrant white metallic casing the device offers one of the most attractive and unique designs in the market. It’s lightweight form factor, strong performance and above...

Acer Aspire S7-392-6411

 

If you're looking for a svelte laptop to show off, yet still be able to do real work in Windows 8, the Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 is the ultrabook you want at the top of the list. It's the current pinnacle of the ultrabook trend and shows the brilliance...

Very thin and light. Strong build quality/sturdy materials. Dual friction hinge. Very good benchmark test performance. Speedy wake from sleep. 8GB of memory. 2.4 and 5GHz Wifi support. No Bloatware. Very good battery life. Full size HDMI port

Odd keyboard layout. Could use a larger SSD array. Thinness is expensive

The Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 ($1,449.99) is half an inch thick and worth every penny you pay for it. It is a premium high-end ultrabook that adds performance and battery life to one of the thinnest laptops we've ever reviewed at PCMag.com. It's got a...

Acer Aspire S7 review (2013)

 

I'm at 38,000 feet, in seat 20B on a Delta flight from San Francisco to New York City. I'm next to a large man in a pink shirt and tortoiseshell Ray-Ban glasses, who could barely wait until 10,000...

Gorgeous design ; Great battery life ; Beautiful display

Quirky touchpad ; Occasional performance glitches

Not quite perfect, but the best all-around Windows 8 ultrabook yet

Acer Aspire S7 review (2013): the second time's a charm for Acer's flagship Ultrabook

 

It wasn't easy writing a conclusion (much less a headline) for our original Acer Aspire S7-391 review. The company's third Ultrabook was near-perfect,

Nice build materials ; Great viewing angles ; Fast performance, longer battery life ; Improved touchpad ; Now runs quietly

Enormous power brick ; No 2,560 x 1,440 option in the US ; Power button is difficult to press ; Expensive for what it is

The second time's a charm for Acer: the company's refreshed S7 Ultrabook addresses all the things we disliked about the original. Just be prepared to pay a premium over competing laptops with similar specs.

Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 review:

 

It's hard to believe, but we're getting close to the one-year mark in the Windows 8 era. Microsoft's still-controversial operating system was released in October 2012, and that was long-enough ago that we're now seeing the second generation of some of...

The Acer Aspire S7 has the same great design we loved last year, but the S7-392-6411 has a more battery-friendly Intel Haswell CPU.

The touch pad and keyboard still don't rate for a $1,400-and-up laptop, and other high-end ultrabooks cost less.

The Acer Aspire S7, a Windows 8 launch favorite that holds up nicely, gets a needed update to the latest CPUs for better battery life.

Acer Aspire S7-392-6411

 

The Acer Aspire S7 is a slim, stylish Ultrabook that offers strong performance, very long battery life and a gorgeous, full-1080p touch screen.

Sexy and lightweight design; Strong graphics and performance; Fast boot and transfer times; Above-average battery life; Beautiful 1080p touchscreen display

Hidden power button; A few undersized keys; Not the fastest SSD

With the Aspire S7-392-6411, Acer has shown that it can incorporate reviewer and user feedback. The company improved both the keyboard and the battery life from the first go-round, all while retaining the sleek, sexy chassis we adored in the first...
