Summary: For a laptop of a high caliber, I expected more from Acer. I shouldn't have to send my laptop in on an average of every 4 months at the cost I bought it. Luckily I bought a two-year warranty, so I do not have to pay 70 dollars every time I send my computer in.
Pros: 1. The boot time is really fast, only takes 2 seconds from start to desktop.
Cons: A little over a year of owning my unit, I had to ship this computer three times because of battery related problems. I bought my unit at full price ($1600) of March 2013.
Summary: Pros: -Aesthetically pleasing -Lightweight -Same exact width & height as Macbook Air 13' -Contrary to a cnet review, Keyboard is easy to use, has pretty deep keys. Cons: -High pitch noise coming from the center (only audible when really close) -Different charger than my other Acer laptops (V3, M5, and 4810) -Comes with two "half-sized" disks instead of one (so two 64GB disks for me) Specifically for Linux: -Wireless doesn't work (wasn't detected by Crunchbang or Debian)...
Excerpt: I only gave this model two stars because it is a solid, fast, and powerful machine. However all of that is overshadowed by the poor quality keyboard. The keys are loose feeling and often take multiple hits to register. Especially the space bar. I tried several different machines and they all had the same problem. I would not recommend this machine.
Pros: Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
Summary: The inconveniences that I have found: Life battery lower than specified Make a HORRIFYING noise when ventilating. I have never had a laptop to do this sort of noise. This is very very annoying especially considering that I would have needed this laptop for class and business meetings. The sound is AT LEAST disturbing, so it would be of no use for me in those instances. The microphone is on bottom of the laptop which makes Skype conversations less accurate.
Summary: This laptop had a lot of potential, but it fell well short, whenever you put the laptop in airplane mode and shut off the WiFi, after you take it out of airplane mode it will not see any wifi networks or connect on its own, it will only connect after you run the troubleshooting program. The other issue is the FAN, it sounds like a jet fighter in afterburner whenever your running video, the FAN is tooooo loud. If you need an 11.6 maybe look at the Mac 11.6.
Summary: Returned mine due to a faulty with the keyboard. I normally hit the spacebar with my right thumb. However, on the S7 I received the right half of the spacebar wouldn't work. The keyboard is also tricky to read due to the chosen colour scheme and keyboard backlight. I really wanted to love this laptop, but I had to send it back. Great service from Amazon.
Summary: Ensimmäisen ostamani koneen kovalevy oli jo paketissa viallinen ja kone meni vaihtoon. Uudessa koneessa oli myös useita ongelmia esimerkiksi horrostilasta käynnistymisen kanssa. Ongelmat ratkesivat vanhojen ajurien asentamisella koneessa jo valmiina olleiden tilalle. Mielestäni myös koneen kosketuslevy ei toimi niin kuin sen pitäisi ja näppäimistön näppäimet eivät aina rekisteröi napin painallusta. Näytössä on pieniä kupruja.
