Mostly happy, but not with keyboard

  • Excerpt: I've been using my new laptop for about 2 weeks now. In general it works well, but I'll note a couple of specific issues: 1) I'm not a big fan of the keyboard. When I tested it in the store it seemed OK, but the flat keys just aren't conducive to accurate touch-typing. It's a shame that virtually every laptop maker has gone with flat chiclet-style keys -- in my opinion, a victory of form over function.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display, Slim Case Included
  • Cons: Poorly Designed Keyboard

Outstanding for Road Warriors

  • Excerpt: I needed a travel-friendly, powerful laptop that I can use in the courtroom. It was between this and the VAIO Pro, which was slightly lighter in weight but had a disturbingly pronounced flex when typing due to its carbon-fiber construction. The Acer is solid, very light, with a breathtakingly sharp screen. I just took it on a trip to South Korea and it was never a weight or logistical burden.

Decent alternative to Macbook air?

  • Excerpt: I really wanted a MacBook Air but all my data is backed up from a previous Windows XP notebook and didn't want to have to go to the hassle of a complete conversion. Not crazy about Windows 8 but this is a good mix of lightweight thin ultrabook, speed, etc with decent battery life. Unfortunately shortly after I received it I attempted to update to 8.1 which screwed a few things up, tried to restore to factory defaults but then couldn't complete update, so had to ship back...
  • Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Quiet, TOUCHSCREEN

Great price and was as advertised

  • Summary: Just arrived today packaged very nicely and plenty of accessories included, the case is a little cheap but who cares. Laptop is VERY light just what I wanted. Key pad works fine for me I like the sensitivity of it. Only dislike is the size weight of the charger, I would have liked to see something lighter and smaller. Haven't travelled with it yet or gotten to do more than set it up, but it seems to meet all descriptions I had read.

Great Ultrabook!

  • Excerpt: I have two minor complaints: the glass lid edge is square and not easy to get hold of for opening. The other is that there is no caps lock indicator which may be from W8. I much prefer W7 and have installed Start8 which is a great help.

Nice size Ultrabook

  • Summary: The computer works great. The display is great also. The wireless mouse didn't work, but it isn't really needed with Windows 8 anyway. Windows 8 takes a lot of getting used to, especially if you want to go beyond the basics. The external battery destroys the slim look of the package, but is actually very useful. It makes typing easier by tilting the keyboard, and it can be charged at one location while the computer on internal battery is used elsewhere.

Talk about cool and functional! On second thought...

  • Summary: I purchased this laptop after using the same compaq laptop for around 7 yrs. I figured now was the time to take the plunge since IMO the addition of touch-screens were the biggest addition in quite some time. It took a little time to get used Win8, but I like the fact that I can use it to work on MS Office, photo-editing, etc AND also be able to use it for touch-based games. A little learning curve, but that can be expected. So far so good.

Great all-around Win 8 touchscreen notebook

T. Ha, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: This notebook has everything I want. Powerful yet ultraportable. The screen resolution is 1080p, which is quite awesome; however, some content may be too small at this native setting. The touchscreen is flawless, but my uses for it are limited. I love the external battery and sleeve case that came with it. I do keep the external battery on (even when I put it in its case).

Very light with backlit keyboard

  • Summary: I spent lots of time looking for this computer and I tried out numerous options. I wanted a windows 8 tablet, but I am a software developer and I need to have a keyboard. Plus I typically work on my lap. This ruled out all of the Windows 8 Tablets for me and I tried several of them (Asus Vivotab Smart, Samsung ATIV 700 pro, Microsoft Surface Pro) I got the Acer Aspire S7-191 on sale from Amazon for $899 which matched my budget. At this price it beats out the competition.

at least now, I like it

  • Summary: Well, I received this ultra-book yesterday. I loved its light and small size, it is the most beautiful ultra-book without any doubt. When I signed into win8, I found its keyboard was not very sensible, sometimes I have to type for several times in order to input the words. But today, the keyboard behaves better, I hope it will keep working well. It's true that I buy this ultra-book for convenience, but I still need some good performance.
