Acer Aspire S7 review (2013)

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: 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. An HP laptop, black, I can't tell what model. Clunky, fat, clearly past its prime. He pulls out a mouse next to it, and after about five minutes of wrangling finally finds space for everything on his tray table.
  • Pros: Gorgeous design, Great battery life, Beautiful display
  • Cons: Quirky touchpad, Occasional performance glitches

  • Summary: At 11.9mm, the Acer Aspire S7 is incredibly slim and looks fantastic in its crisp, white suit. The addition of the touchscreen means that navigating through Windows 8's big tiles is delightfully simple. Sadly though, its performance, while good, isn't as blazingly fast as you'd hope for considering the high price.
  • Cons: expensive; not fantastic performance for the money; trackpad isn't very responsive.

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. The Acer is a bit pricey, but you do get a nice set of upgrades: Core i7 rather than i5 CPU, 8 gigs of RAM and a 256 gig SSD drive that augment performance.
  • Pros: Gorgeous design, very light, rigid frame, good performance.
  • Cons: Expensive.

  • 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. Dual-torque hinges, an impossibly-thin body and a Gorilla Glass top combine to create a chassis that's extremely well built and beautiful to behold.

Acer Aspire S7 11.6-inch Ultrabook

MacNN
1 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The Good Dual-SSD storage Precise, clean finish Brilliant touchscreen Many bundled accessories The Bad Abysmal battery life Poor audio performance 4GB RAM limit Limited to Windows 8 Ultrabooks abound. Just about every major manufacturer makes them, and too many look like the MacBook Air. The 2011 Intel spec for ultrabooks is very detailed, and gives guidelines for performance, enhancements, and even battery life.
  • Pros: Dual-SSD storage, Precise, clean finish, Brilliant touchscreen, Many bundled accessories
  • Cons: Abysmal battery life, Poor audio performance, 4GB RAM limit, Limited to Windows 8

Acer Aspire S7 and Dell XPS 12 review: battle of the transforming 1080p touchscreen ultrabooks

theverge.com
28 February 2013
  • Summary: The Dell XPS 12 and Acer Aspire S7 aren’t your average laptops. They’re premium, and unique. One is a razor-thin, Gorilla Glass-infused attempt to transform Acer’s reputation , the other Dell’s carbon fiber-laced realization of an idea that was ahead of its time . Both start at $1,199 for a Core i5 processor, 4GB of memory, 128GB of solid state storage, and a brilliant 1080p touchscreen display, but each has its own special way of running Windows 8.
  • Pros: Excellent 1080p touchscreen display, Clever spinning hinge, Solid keyboard and audio quality
  • Cons: Many touchpad issues, Middling battery life, Few ports, Cumbersome as a tablet

Acer Aspire S7 MS2363 Review

Tech2
27 February 2013
  • Summary: The 11.6-inch model of the Acer Aspire S7 retails for Rs 87,599, which is not too bad all things considered. Remember, we talking about premium Ultrabooks here so ‘value for money’ doesn’t really apply. When compared to its rivals like the Dell XPS 12 and Sony VAIO Duo 11 , the S7 is hands down the clear winner. Sure, you can’t use it as a true tablet but this is not a hybrid to begin with so the fact that you’re getting a touchscreen is a bonus.

  • Conclusion: The Acer Aspire S7 11.6" is easy on the eyes both in terms of visual appeal and the sharp IPS full HD display. It looks and feels like a luxury notebook, with a hint of James Bond since it's so small and sleek. We love the EL backlighting on the keyboard, though we never quite adjusted to the jarring feel of the keys' short travel. That didn't stop us from typing quickly and accurately, and the trackpad is passable.
  • Pros: Elegant design, supremely thin and light. Excellent full HD touch screen.
  • Cons: Short battery life.

Acer Aspire S7 Review

TechSpot
10 January 2013
  • Conclusion: That leaves us with a best-in-class laptop with two distinct and important weaknesses. A bad trackpad is a serious knock against any laptop, let alone one that sells for $1650. Mediocre battery life doesn't help. Then again, literally everything else on the S7 is phenomenal. The largest success of the S7 is that it's a statement against the continued commoditization of laptops.

  • Conclusion: Priced at roughly AED 6500, the Aspire S7 should be on the top of your list if you are looking into getting a Windows Phone 8 based laptop. It is also available in 11” form factor and looks equally impressive.
