Acer Aspire S7 (2015) Ultrabook Review

Notebookcheck
28 May 2015
  • Summary: Sharp as a knife. Slim, elegant and streamlined - the looks of the S7 will stop everyone from simply passing by Acer's premium range. Will the pricey first-rate configuration of WQHD screen and SSD Raid ultimately be convincing? We examined that in this in-depth test report.
  • Pros: High-quality build, Extremely slim casing, WQHD screen, Multi-touch screen, Very good viewing angles (IPS), TFT's opening angle >180 degrees, High performance, Cool in normal use, VGA and Ethernet via DP adapter, Useful speakers
  • Cons: Glare-type screen, Reduced brightness in battery mode, Only few maintenance and upgrade options, Comparatively short battery life, Poor webcam quality, Sharp-edged chassis

PC Magazine
26 May 2015
  • Conclusion: The Acer Aspire S7-393-7451 is a sleek and lightweight ultraportable laptop, but it's held back by a load of preinstalled software and a limited selection of ports.

  • Cons: Very few ports. Lots of preinstalled software.

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.

Expert Review

HotHardware
19 December 2013
  • 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have moved much closer to Intel’s original vision of thin, light, low-power (but still powerful) systems that eschew outdated...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 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.

theverge.com
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.

Acer Aspire S7 Review

Digitaltrends
17 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Acer’s slogan of “explore beyond limits” is appropriate. The company was an early adopter of the Ultrabook and has, since then, pushed the limits of size and weight in the category. It also was the first manufacturer to include a discrete graphics processor in an Ultrabook.
