  • Conclusion: The Acer Aspire S3 is an impressive portable, which offers superb power in an incredibly lightweight design. We’re really happy that this marriage of proper computing power, and great design finally has a home in the PC market. We hope that the small problems we experienced will be ironed out in time for its full release, and enable this laptop to be a benchmark of what can be achieved under the Ultrabook brand.

  • Conclusion: The Acer Aspire S3-391-6046 gives you a full-blown Windows 8 ultrabook at a decent price. If you want a thin, light, reasonably fast ultrabook to learn Windows 8 on, this is worth a look.

  • Summary: The new Acer Aspire S3 ultrabook features an updated Ivy Bridge Core i7 processor, and a new price tag. On paper, this has impressive specs, but that doesn't take away the fact that it is charging a premium for just the Macbook Air form factor.
  • Pros: Extremely slim and light, Put together well, Stable performance, Good battery life, Display is not very reflective
  • Cons: Pricey, Powered by essentially a ULV Core i7 processor, No SSD

  • Excerpt: The progress of technology is astounding. Every couple of years, computing power doubles. We keep packing more features into mobile devices. Features such as GPS, Accelerometers, Quad Core Graphics and resolutions so high you cannot distinguish the pixels anymore. My cellphone now has a faster processor than the Windows 7 machine I’m typing this review on. Notebook computers are getting lighter, faster and have more battery life than ever before.

  • Summary: The Acer S3 feels like a middle of the road laptop. It does everything you need it to do without ever excelling itself. A short battery life is the real kicker, but that’s the price you pay for an ultrabook that costs a lot less than many of its competitors.

Acer Aspire S3 (Core i7) Review

SlashGear
9 February 2012
  • Conclusion: This machine is a great example of what the Ultrabook line is meant to be: relatively light, thin, and powerful enough to knock the netbook name out of the realm of reality. With the price on this particular setup being a bit more than the standard build, you'll need to think about what you're planning on using the machine for - if it's home use for the internet and simple games exclusively, you'll want the more basic Core i5 build.

  • Conclusion: The Acer Aspire S3 has a super-thin profile, larger storage capacity than competitors, and unmatched affordability, but it has some rough patches, like a cheap-feeling construction and a disappointing display.
  • Pros: Thin. Light. Core i5 processor and 4GB memory provide potent performance. Combination of spinning hard drive and SSD provides larger storage capacity without losing speed. More affordable than competitors.
  • Cons: Display has lower resolution, limited viewing angles. Construction feels cheap.
