looks great but watch out for major wireless internet trouble and keyboard breakdown.

Naomi Tucker, Amazon
22 July 2014
  • Summary: It looks and feels like a great computer, but the wireless doesn't work properly and in the third week the keyboard started malfunctioning I love that it's so lightweight and compact, but what good is a laptop with no wiireless and a broken keyboard? Also Acer has the worst customer service.

Nice Paperweight

Melinda J., Newegg
6 September 2013
  • Pros: Seeing as this computer was defective when it arrived, I have nothing positive to say about it OR about Acer's customer service. The only positive side is the way Newegg handled the situation.
  • Cons: I purchased this computer after reading several reviews on multiple websites. Unfortunately, this computer arrived with a defective internal battery. On the initial charge the battery only charged to 70% and then said “plugged in, not charging.” I called Acer’s technical support. That was a NIGHT...

Garbage

Eric Y., Newegg
12 July 2013
  • 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.).

Waste of money (DO NOT BUY)

Damien O leary, Amazon
8 August 2014
  • Summary: Waste of money. Wish I had purchased a Macbook instead. Multiple problems with this device eg: poor wifi adapter, pathetic battery (How can they call this an ultrabook? I cannot get 3 hours battery life)I had an issue with the laptop so I contacted Acer and was surprised to hear that the warranty...
