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

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.
Excerpt: On 31/12/2013, I ordered this Aspire S7-392-9890 Multi-Touch 13.3" Ultrabook Computer (Crystal White) by Acer from this website, with a reference number 1027604848. However the computer refused to work 18 days ago. I couldn't start the Windows and I was staring at a black screen.
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...
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. . .

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.).
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: 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...
