Worst Quality, recommend to stay away

honest Reviewer, Adorama
26 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I gave it a one star because providing rating is mandatory and I have to give some star rating. There are several things bad about the laptop, some of the larger ones<br /><br />1) Bad keyboard - Very low clearance makes is difficult to type, anyone who has used IBM/Lenovo or MacBook Pro would know what a good keyboard should be like<br />2) Bad Battery - Battery was good (about 5-6 hrs) when the laptop was new, as I started using the laptop,the battery life declined...
  • Pros: Fast, Lightweight
  • Cons: Freezes Up, Poorly Designed Keyboard, Short Battery Life, Too Hot

Garbage

Eric Y., Newegg

  • Pros: it looks cool
  • Cons: I had this laptop, the highest end model, for about 6 months. I actually bought it from a retailer, and I ended up exchanging it repeatedly. I went through 4 of them before finally exchanging it for the new sony haswell ultrabook. And everyone else I know with this acer s7 had the same problem...

Looks like recent Acer update may have bricked it. . .

TMK, Amazon
10 May 2013
  • Summary: I have owned my Acer S7 for about 6 weeks now. Sleek looking design, solid performance. I do not like Windows 8 (but that is not Acer's fault). Was having frequent wireless problems (drops, etc.). Yesterday, while on the road, an update was pushed/made available which said it would fix the wireless problems. I downloaded and installed. Last night I assume a Windows update (or another update) was pushed to the device. This AM would not boot from the SSD.

  • Summary: Bought this laptop at micro centet electronics. Loved it first few days then the WiFi started dropping signal randomly. Tried a bunch of software fixes all without success. Read the threads at Acer product support. These laptops have a major wifi hardware problem.

  • Summary: For additional 400 you can as well buy MBP, with double resolution screen, same SSD drive and sameCore i7 processor and dedicated nVidia graphics.
  • Pros: Better than average battery life.
  • Cons: Obviously, Windows 8 is biggest con. Touchscreen.

A flat disappointment with many niggles

London walker, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: When you buy a new bit of technology, it takes a while to prime yourself on the eccentricities of the beast and to come to terms with the new technology. Every couple of weeks I found something that irked me with the Aspire S7. Often I thought it must be me just not getting it until someone younger and wiser would sometimes agree that yes, it was my stupidity, but increasingly the errors list with the technology grew with issues that were not to do with my ignorance.

  • Summary: I bought this machine a couple weeks back, and unfortunately I found that... wifi does NOT work on this machine (driver issue)... People has been complaining since Dec 2012, and it is March 2013 already and it is still not fixed. Please check out the Acer community forum (ultrabook) before you consider buying this machine... By all means, this is a very beautiful machine...
  • Pros: It is absolutely beautiful
  • Cons: wifi DOES NOT work
