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.

Overall, the Acer Aspire S7-392-5410 is an great high-end ultrabook that simply has a lot of competition. There are a few drawbacks, like bloatware, the odd keyboard layout, and the overly sensitive trackpad. We figure that the majority of users who...

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 updates the Aspire S7 ultrabook making improvements to battery life and performance. Keep reading to see if the new S7 is worth your holiday cash.

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

 

The Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 is the current pinnacle in thin, light, powerful, and all day ultrabook laptop computing.

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's performance punctuates the system's excellent feature set, thinness, design, build quality, low weight, and general excellence. It is more than a worthy replacement of the Zenbook Prime Touch as our new Editors' Choice for...

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...
