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'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

At $1,399, Acer's Aspire S7 392-6807 packs a gorgeous, quad-HD screen and capable performance into a drool-worthy package. Unfortunately, there just isn't enough high-res content suitable for this display yet to make up for the trade-off in battery...

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 S7-392 Review

 

Acer surprised many with its original Aspire S7, which we first saw in late 2012. At a half an inch thick and just under 3 pounds, it was impressively svelte, even compared to other 13-inch Ultrabooks. And its glossy-white lid, aluminum frame, and soft...

Still thin, light, and attractive ; Battery life is much improved ; Better keyboard ; Runs quieter than previous model

Gets very warm under load ; Minor aesthetic issues mar the overall design ; Keyboard still isn’t great ; Screen not as bright as previous model

With a new CPU, bigger battery, an improved keyboard, and standout aesthetics, Acer’s updated Aspire S7 is seriously worth considering.

Acer Aspire S7-392-6411

 

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 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.

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...

"Horrible experience: hard drive failed, repairs a joke"

 

I regret buying this machine

Its specs are good on paper

Hard drive failed in 5 months; I had to pay $70 shipping to return it for repairs. 10 days later, I still have no computer and no info. The keyboard doesn't record keystrokes uniformly. It also turns off spontaneously when unplugged. Fail!

"I had a problem with the keyboard the day I received it"

 

When I called Acer tech support and a problem was solved, my tech support history was marked SOLVED. When the problem wasn't solved, there's no note of me contacting them. One tech got so frustrated with me that we got "disconnected" and he never tried...

The unit is very thin, light, and fast.

I had to send the unit back to Acer for repairs - on MY dime - $70+ actually. Cannot return in the box it shipped in! Just based on that, this is my first and last Acer. I bought it from the Microsoft store - not their problem contact manufacturer!
