Detailed Acer Aspire S7 Review
The Acer Aspire S7 is again a great value slim laptop proposed by Acer. With its compact form, premium look and top performance, it’s a great balanced premium laptop. Like most ultraportable, it won’t be able to play demanding games, but otherwise it will allow for heavy multi-tasking or pretty much anything you throw at it.
Acer has designed their Aspire S7 to be classy and premium. It’s a solid notebook built on a very small body. The build quality is undeniable and it’s a laptop that should last you a while. At half an inch thick and less than 3 pounds, the Acer Aspire S7 has some of the best features of the ultraportable category.
No compromise here, Acer has equipped his S7 with an i7 and 8 GB of RAM. Add that to the SSD hard drive, you can ask a lot from this one and it won’t let you down. Heavy multi-tasking won’t be an issue!
The 13.3″ HD screen – 1920 x 1080 – is bright and colorful matte (?) screen is at par with the best of the competition. The only drawback is the fact that there is no dedicated graphic card so you must forget about playing demanding games, but that’s the case for all ultraportable.
The Acer Aspire S7 comes with a fast 256 GB SSD hard drive. It should be enough for your files and is at par with the rest of the competition.
No compromise on the battery with a whopping 13 hours battery life. In real life it will last less than that, but you easily have 10+ hours of battery life, which for any category of laptop, is excellent.
Sound is not the best in its category per se, but for such a thin laptop, it pretty good.
