Thin, light and good screen. Mediocre battery life, funky WiFi and BT. Typing is miserable and frustrating.

Summary: I've had the S7-391 with 4Gb RAM and a 256 GB SSD for about 6 months, having paid a lot more for it when it first came out. I can recommend it, but only if you understand the limitations and problems with the machine. Here's a quick summary of my experience to date: Good It's very thin and very light. The screen has excellent resolution and reasonably responsive touch capabilities.
Summary: i love this laptop and everything about it. it has a great build, solid battery, and the screen is fantastic. however i do have a few problems, some minor and other major. my first minor issues are with the keyboard which doesn't have great travel to the keys which causes a lot of typing errors in (6 so far in this review).
Summary: Actually really like the computer, but the keyboard has had problems with several keys and is now failing completely. And, it is beyond the Amazon 30 day return window for laptops. Now to go fight with Acer.
Summary: Pros: Well built, light weight, long battery, good cooling Cons: Too pricey for what you get, Lenovo offers lot more for same price, bad keyboard layout, poor hazy display (could have been just my unit), Bad network connectivity.
Summary: when I go to "Acer Recovery Management" -----> "restore factory setting", it say: Insert media some files are missing. Your Windows installation or recovery media will provide these files. I didn't backup the system. So I have no recovery media. I don't know how to do. my E-mail is email@example.com.
Summary: I really like the weight of this laptop and how sleek it looks, however, I've been having many issues with this laptop. On the second day I found out that my SD card slot did not work. After three calls to Acer they accepted that my laptop did not have the SD slot hardware and needed to be replaced. So I sent my laptop off to Acer for about three weeks. After I got my laptop returned I noticed that there was a connection issue (wifi).
Even thought it is very attractive, light & some good features, but it has some minor problems

Summary: I bought this after many days of researching, actually weeks.. I wanted something that is very light and portable with long battery life and with touch screen window 8. What attracted me most were few points : extra bettery that come with it. (some people complain that it looks awkward, but considering how thin this ultrabook is, you have to give up something to get extra battery life. for me, it was good). Very light and good looking (I give 5 stars).
Summary: This is almost a totally perfect laptop. Thin, light and pretty. Almost the perfect travel companion. Alas I can't reliably type the space key with it. I'm not a light typist. In fact I've been told I pound on the keys when I type on keyboards. But even so the space bar won't register half the time. Its not a subtle occasional flaw. Its all the time. Deal breaker. Others have reported similar issues with other keys. Except for the space I quite like the keyboard.
Summary: PRO: It's light and has long battery live. CON: wireless adapter disconnects a lot and won't reconnect unless you do a restart on the system (MAJOR ISSUE) Can't rest it on your lap or on any non-hard surface as it will block the intake fan for the CPU.
Another One with WiFi issues--check your router compatibility first before buying!

Summary: Was hoping I'd be one of the lucky ones without WiFi issues. No such luck. No connectivity, when all other computers in the home pick up our wireless with ease. Am also finding the edges unusually sharp, to the point where it almost feels that it could scratch (if not cut) the skin if you catch it the wrong way. This is noticeably worse along the sides. And the cover is definitely a fingerprint magnet. Another reviewer mentioned he found the arrow keys too small.
