Acer S7 Review

maximum pc
25 September 2014
  • Excerpt: As if the Acer S7 ’s seductively slim figure and supremely good looks weren’t enough, this skinny vixen of a portable also boasts an impressive performance acumen. It must drive the competition crazy.
  • Pros: Beautiful and well-built; impressive performance; IPS touchscreen.
  • Cons: Weak battery life; touchpad is a bit laggy; expensive.

Acer Aspire S7 (2014) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
7 March 2014
  • Summary: If you're in the market for a quad-HD experience, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus can be found for $1,299 on Amazon and offers 8 hours of battery life. But if you want a better-looking machine with an equally attractive screen, the Aspire S7 is still one of the better Ultrabooks.

  • Summary: Intel's 4th generation Core processors, based on the company's Haswell microarchitecture, have done good things for ultrabooks this year. Thanks to Haswell, Ultrabooks have moved much closer to Intel’s original vision of thin, light, low-power (but still powerful) systems that eschew outdated...

Acer Aspire S7 (2013, Haswell 13") Notebook Review

25 September 2013
  • Summary: The Acer Aspire S7 was one of the hottest high end Ultrabooks to hit the market in 2012. The 13.3" model featured a white Gorilla Glass 2 lid, an extremely thin design and stunning good looks. Its Achilles heel was battery life, which was woefully short.

Acer Aspire S7 13.3"

MobileTechReview.com
24 September 2013
  • Conclusion: If your budget is generous and you have a taste for the best, the Acer Aspire S7 is a top contender. The glass lid, 0.51" slim design and 2.87 lb. weight make for a stylish and attractive Ultrabook that competes nicely with the also very light and chic Sony Vaio Pro 13.
  • Pros: Gorgeous design, very light, rigid frame, good performance.
  • Cons: Expensive.

Haswell to the rescue: Acer’s refreshed Aspire S7 Ultrabook reviewed

Ars Technica
2 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Intel’s Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors made it possible to shrink laptops to Ultrabook-level thickness without completely ruining performance compared to a thicker, more conventional laptop.
  • Pros: Attractively styled and well-built, Great 1080p IPS touchscreen, RAID 0 SSD makes for very quick storage speeds, Improved port layout and key travel, Battery life goes from bottom-of-the-barrel to not-half-bad
  • Cons: Keyboard still uses an odd layout that seems unnecessary given the unused space in the palmrest, Tweaky trackpad, Not much of a performance upgrade over last year’s model, though it’s still plenty fast for most general computing tasks, Keyboard still uses an odd layout that seems unnecessary give...

20 August 2013
  • Excerpt: 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 feet to reach underneath his seat and pull out his laptop.
  • Pros: Gorgeous design, Great battery life, Beautiful display
  • Cons: Quirky touchpad, Occasional performance glitches

Acer Aspire S7 (2013) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
5 August 2013
  • Summary: However, $1,499 isn't pocket change. For the same price, you can get the lighter Sony VAIO Pro 13 with the same CPU and RAM, and a larger 256GB SSD. Nevertheless, we prefer Acer's keyboard and like that you get nearly 9 hours of endurance without strapping on an external battery.

  • Conclusion: We didn't think it would be Acer who would set a new standard for Ultrabook design, but credit where it's due, the Aspire S7 is one of the most stunning laptops we've seen in recent years.

Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook: Acer’s Best Foot Forward

AnandTech
8 April 2013
  • Conclusion: 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 of those efforts compares with what other...
