Acer Aspire S7 review (13-inch): great Ultrabook, a shame about the battery life

 

Back in June, when Acer first announced the Aspire S7 Series, two things seemed noteworthy: these were the company's first touchscreen Ultrabooks, for

Stunning 1080p IPS display ; Nice build materials ; Thin and light, even for an Ultrabook ; Very fast performance ; Adapters, mouse and case included

Short battery life ; Loud fan noise ; Finicky trackpad

The S7 is Acer's best Ultrabook yet, but it suffers from loud fan noise and notably short battery life.

Acer Aspire S7: A premium touch-screen Windows 8 experience

 

This was one of the first Windows 8 laptops we profiled; now read the full review.

The ; 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 S7-391-6810

 

In hands-on use, this Aspire S7 looked and felt identical to the preproduction sample from October 2012. Like many of the laptops and convertible laptop/ tablet hybrids we've reviewed recently, the Aspire S7 is a new-from-the-ground-up ultrabook,...

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 and Dell XPS 12 review: battle of the transforming 1080p touchscreen ultrabooks

 

The Dell XPS 12 and Acer Aspire S7 aren't your average laptops. They're premium, and unique. One is a razor-thin, Gorilla Glass-infused attempt to transform Acer's reputation, the other Dell's carbon fiber-laced...

Excellent 1080p touchscreen display ; Clever spinning hinge ; Solid keyboard and audio quality

Many touchpad issues ; Middling battery life ; Few ports ; Cumbersome as a tablet

Perfect for couch surfing, but probably not on an airplane

Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook: Acer’s Best Foot Forward

 

Over the years, we've seen many budget-oriented Acer offerings of one form or another. There have also been a few higher-end options, but for most of their products Acer has never quite managed to shake their budget-oriented feel. That changes today...

If you’ll pardon my slaughtering of Neil Armstrong’s famous quote from the moon landing, there are two areas I want to focus on for the conclusion. First, there’s what Acer has done today relative to the Acer of years past; second is how the end result...

Acer Aspire S7 Review (S7-391-6413)

 

The Acer Aspire S7 was introduced by the company nearly a year ago in June 2012 as one of the company's first touchscreen ultrabooks, and by far one of their best to date as it included a Full HD display, […]

If neither of those items matter to you in a touchscreen ultrabook, then the Acer Aspire S7 would make a fine addition to your arsenal as its light, powerful and has a great-looking 1080p screen. If its battery was better, then we could certainly...

Acer Aspire S7 Review

 

The larger of the two big-hitters in the Acer Aspire S7 series Ultrabooks sits here on our desk like a high-powered glass-covered knife, ready to bring the best we've seen in touchscreen-toting Windows 8 -optimized notebook action to the market. This...

This machine is Acer’s best effort yet. It’s an Ultrabook that makes the Windows 8 experience an enjoyable one – and on a personal note, it’s the first in many moons that’s made certain Apple-exclusive family members of mine think about trying a switch...

Review Acer Aspire S7 391 Ultrabook

 

12 millimeter bullet. How many notebooks can fit in a height of twelve millimeters? With its high-end ultrabook, Acer presents this question. SSD-Raid, Intel Core-i7 ULV CPU, IPS Full HD touch screen and unibody style - any other questions?

Good workmanship, Extremely thin case, Lighter than MB Air 13, Full HD Display, Multi-touch panel, Very good viewing angles (IPS), TFT opening angle of 180 degrees, Extremely fast RAID 0 SSD, High performance, Cool under normal operation, Accessories:...

Glossy display, Low brightness on battery use, Almost no maintenance and upgrade options, Few interfaces, Short battery life, Sharp-edged chassis., Higher brightness on battery power. But then the battery life would be even shorter
