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.

  • Summary: The Acer Aspire S3 is an interesting laptop, which delivers good raw compute performance that is comparable to other laptops using the same Intel Core i5 24xx platform. However, the choice of using an mechanical hard drive (HDD) will put it at a significant disadvantage when compared to competitors who have opted for a Solid State Drive (SSD) because the SSD seek-time is nearly infinitely faster. SSD is a critical component of perceived performance in a computer.

  • Excerpt: Let’s cut to the chase here. If you’re pondering buying the Acer Aspire S3, it’s because you desperately want an
  • Pros: A rather inexpensive and decent way to play dress up and fit in and Starbucks. A nice feat of engineering at a respectable price. Fair enough battery life (four and half hours under load).
  • Cons: Two USB ports may mimic the MacBook Air, but it’s still not enough. Performance is average at best. Surprisingly loud and aggressive fan. Stuffed to the gills with shovelware (When’s the last time you saw an eBay icon on the desktop?).
