Light and fast

Anne I., Newegg
21 October 2014
  • Pros: Weighs nothing. Is really fast. Clear screen.
  • Cons: Windows 8!! Only reason I didn't give it 5 eggs is because I can't stand Windows 8 and that's what it comes with.

Overall good portable netbook

Douglas D., Newegg
28 March 2013
  • Summary: If you're a Linux guy with good eyes and you need a good portable machine, this isn't a bad choice. I'm not using the touch screen so I can't say much about that
  • Pros: Portability and very crisp screen. At first I did not like the keyboard but it grew on me after about 30 minutes. As someone else did, I disabled RAID and went to legacy BIOS and booted up GNU/Linux (Xubuntu 12.10). I was very happy to see the majority of the function keys working. Wifi works gre...
  • Cons: Battery life. but It's not that bad. Having to pay that Windows fee. But hey, it was a good sale

Ahmad B., Newegg
21 March 2013
  • Summary: I had my eyes on this machine for a while. The MSRP is a bit high IMHO, but with 25% off from Newegg, the decision was much easier. There are very few choices if you want to go with 11.6" 1080p screens, and this one is probably one of the best. Looking forward to doing some personal projects on it.
  • Pros: This ultrabook has stunning looks. The build of the machine feels very solid. Screen resolution is awesome for visual delight, as well as productivity. Had trouble installing Ubuntu 12.04.2 with UEFI, but eventually decided to disable RAID an go with legacy BIOS. Everything is working well now. T...
  • Cons: Battery life without attaching the awkward extended battery is not good (around 3 hours). The adapter connector seems a little flimsy.

Nice little ultra-portable

Scott H., Newegg
25 November 2012
  • Summary: The display is amazing, but the high resolution makes the desktop itself a little hard to read. It is easy enough to fix by increasing font size, and I don't view this as a con, as it is always better to have too much resolution than not enough.
  • Pros: Extremely thin and light, but still feels very solid Beautiful 1920x1080 display the best, most usable touch screen I have seen on a laptop Includes a travel case Includes micro-HDMI to VGA and USB to ethernet adapters Small footprint AC adapter Decent battery life for its weight/size Very usable...
  • Cons: Memory is not upgradable Atheros wifi is not upgradeable Pricey for what it is

Great ultra-portable, but limited on upgrade options

Scott H., Newegg
25 November 2012
  • Summary: First off I should point out that this version DOES include the same leather-like Acer case Newegg has pictured with the S7-391-9886, which was a pleasant surprise. It also fits perfectly in cases designed for the Macbook Air 13.3.
  • Pros: Extremely thin and light, but still feels very solid Beautiful 1920x1080 display the best, most usable touch screen I have seen on a laptop Includes a travel case Includes micro-HDMI to VGA and USB to ethernet adapters Small footprint AC adapter Decent battery life for its weight/size Very usable...

  • Summary: Worked straight out of the box, easy connections on wifi, bluetooth etc, decent speed considering only an i5 processor. This will never replace a full sized laptop, but I have done everything from powerpoiint to excel and it hasn't crashed or frozen once.
  • Pros: Super lightweight, great touch screen, good battery life
  • Cons: solid state hard drive capacity of 100GB free space after OS
