Review Acer Aspire S3-391-53314G52add Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
10 September 2012
  • Summary: Number one's successor. In late 2011, Acer launched its first ultrabook, the Aspire S3. Now updated, the 13.3-inch Aspire S3-391 ultrabook features Ivy Bridge components starting at 799 Euro (~$999). We tested whether the ultrabook is worth its price.
  • Pros: Slim, thin, lightweight, handy case, Two USB 3.0 ports, The innards are easily accessible, Two year warranty, The thin, slim ultrabook looks good. The necessary interfaces and ports are installed despite the low build.
  • Cons: The hard disk slows down the system, The maximum computing power is not permanently available during full load, A solid state drive as the main storage device. The more expensive Aspire S3-391 models feature such a solution.
