Acer S7-391-6810 Ultrabook comes with these high level specs: 3rd Generation Intel Core i5-3317U Processor, Windows 8, 13.3" Full HD (1920 x 1080) widescreen CineCrystal LED-backlit display, Multi-touch screen, supporting 10 finger touch, Mobile Intel HM77 Express Chipset, Intel HD Graphics 4000 with 128MB of dedicated system memory, 4096MB DDR3 Memory, 128GB SSD Drive (In RAID 0 configuration), 2-in-1 Digital Media Card Reader, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi CERTIFIED, Bluetooth 4.0+HS, Built-In HD Webcam, 2 – USB 3.0 Ports, 1 – Micro-HDMI Port, 4-cell Lithium Polymer Battery (4680 mAh), Up to 6-hours Battery Life, 2.86 lbs. | 1.3 kg (system unit only)
So the positives:-
(1) Light and its the most practically slim PC you can get while retaining as many of the necessary characteristics one needs to be productive; its has (2) fast USB3 ports, neatly located in the upper right side of the laptop.
(2) The design is very cool and attractive and I’ve been getting inquires from friend like ooowwee cool MacBook LOL; its not but looks just as good as any well designed piece of tech worthy of Apple engineering.
(3) The complementary accessories that comes with the Ultrabook such as the wireless Bluetooth mouse and neat carrying case was a nice touch as well and very unexpected; maybe I didn’t read the product packaging before I bought it but I didn’t expect it so it was a nice gesture.
(4) Loaded with a few good Acer approved apps for win8, such as their music and file storage options nothing I going to immediately take up but its free, so thanks.
(5) Overall system performance well in a word excellent; I can’t find a single thing wrong from boot to windows shut down or sleep mode. Truth is I’m now getting to understand win8 allot has changed so its impacting my productivity a little but that nothing to do with the system and all to do with me.
But like everything else they are some caveats so the Cons :-
(1) The location of the power button is poorly conceived since its along the left side and near power cord I keep hitting the power button by accident NOT-GOOD it happens to often.
(2) The idea of a touchscreen laptop seens sexy but its not… I keep having to clean the darn thing and windows 8 isn’t ready for primetime as yet but that not Acer’s fault.
So my over all rating for this sweet piece of tech is 8.5
I received this ultrabook as a gift and now I’m giving you my first impressions as a review. I’m writing this review using my Acer S7-391-6810 to be exact
I have to say I’m impressed with the performance of this little computer and found the following on the positive side:
- Gorgeous… ohh boy it is good looking.
- Very thin
- Solid, you can handle the ultrabook while walking or standing using one hand on one of the lower corner of the keyboard while typing with the other hand.
- The main body and the keyboard face is aluminium while the screen is an aluminium frame sandwiched between white glass (gorilla they say but i just can’t tell)
- The bottom of the UB is plastic though the whole package does justify the price range because it does feels premium.
- Very good performance and i looove the touch screen.
- Includes a very light plastic bluetooth mouse but i do like it.
- Also includes the ethernet and vga dongles so the price you pay is almost all you need.
On the bad side, I respectfully disagree with reviewers saying the keyboard is rubbish. It is NOT and I’m saying this writing with mine… the keyboard while not as good as the one in my Macbook Pro, is good nevertheless, but I do agree with reviewers saying the touchpad is rubbish… well it is…it is so rubbish that before I found a feasible solution for mine, I was thinking Acer included a mouse for you to stay away from it.
The thing is though, I just can’t tolerate the tapping function of none of the touch pads I’ve ever used in my life and this one is by no means an exception… I was about to throw away this UltraBook because of the pad but I gave it a second chance doing what I did with my Powerbook, Macbook, Macbook Pro old and new… I deactivated the tapping function with a little bit more tweak. Let’s see what I did:
- On the desktop mode or whatever the windows 7 like mode name is (I’m a mac user and while I do like Windows 8 I’m not familiar with the names yet ), look for the icons on the lower right corner. There’s a touchpad icon, double click on it and a touchpad control panel appears.
- Disable tapping
