Half laptop and half tablet, the Acer Aspire S7 offers a sleek, light-weight design and has a lot of power behind it to fulfill all of your computer needs. Acer vastly improves their laptops with every new product that they put out, and they always look good. The Aspire S7 is no different, it weights in at only 2.5 pounds and its full 1080p HD screen measures in at 13.3 inches to give you great quality video and provides you with enough space to accomplish your multitasking needs. The Acer Aspire S7 comes with Windows 8 to take full advantage of its tablet style touch screen and gives you a variety of options on how you would like you interact with your PC.
This particular model has a price tag of around $1,649 and has the hardware to justify such a cost. Inside is a 1.9Ghz Intel Core i7-3517U, 4GB DDR3 memory, a 256GB SSD hard drive, and an Intel HD4000 graphics processor. The 3DMark scores are way off the chart and this laptop outperforms competing laptops, such as the Sony VAIO Pro 13, the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix, and the Dell XPS 12.
The keyboard is back-lit and easy to type on. The keys are large enough for you to type comfortably on without getting in your way and making it difficult to hit other keys when typing at an accelerated speed. The touchpad offers multi-finger functionality, such as pinch-to-zoom, two-finger scrolls, and all of the Windows 8 gestures you be required to use.
The Acer Aspire S7 offers the usual required amount of ports to connect you with your hardware, it comes with 2 USB 3.0 inputs which are super fast for transferring your data. One HDMI input allows you to connect your laptop to a PC monitor or HDTV. The audio port is a combination microphone/headphone jack, but the laptop does offer a built-in digital microphone. A built-in 1.3 megapixel HD webcam is also included.
Overall, this is a quality laptop that is worth the price. It has some cons, but I think the sheer speed and style that this quality model offers beats the cons and you won’t be dissatisfied with this product.
