    [Updated-Windows 8.1] Exceeded My Expectations and the speakers…., July 17, 2013

    YingWei (Minneapolis, MN) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Acer Aspire S7-392-9890 13.3-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook (1.8 GHz Intel Core i7-4500U Processor, 8GB DDR3L, 256GB SSD, Windows 8) Crystal White (Personal Computers)

    Last Updated December 09, 2013 [Windows 8.1 review]
    ==============================
    Reason for purchase:
    ==============================
    Been waiting almost a year now for Haswell to come out after leaks were given online, and it meets and exceeds my expectation through and through. I was looking for a replacement for my 3-year old Acer TimelineX laptop and decided I’m not going to go cheap when it came to buying a laptop since I was tired of flimsy screen that feel like they’ll break if pressed in the middle. It was either the Acer S7, the Asus Zenbook Infinity, or Samsung Ativ Book Plus HD for my replacement laptop. Chose the S7 over the Zenbook Infinity and Ativ Book for 3 reasons:

    1) This is Acer’s third iteration of the S7 compared to Asus Zenbook Infinity which will be it’s first. First generations for new designs usually have more kinks/issues that I’m trying to avoid when I’m paying over $1000+ for a laptop, you’d expect it to be flawless to an extent.

    2) Owned an Acer and Asus laptop before, and Acer always knew what they were doing when it came to power efficiency versus Asus which for some reason or another has issues with power consumption levels. (this is from my experience)

    3) Samsung decided not to increase the max ram amount to 8GB, which is shame since ram is crucial in multitasking especially for apps on windows 8

    ======
    Pros:
    ======
    –Battery Life!: just doing regular task like checking emails and browsing online at 70% brightness I was able to get 8-9 hours! which is amazing, this is why I waited for Haswell =) (assuming if you have 99% battery at start)

    –Boot Time: Switching from an HDD on windows 7 to an SSD on windows 8 was mind blowing, from 2-4 minutes to only 2-4 seconds just made me love this laptop more than I already do. Albeit windows 8 is cheating a bit with their hybrid shutdown design, overall this is what I was expecting.

    –Design: thin and light, ergonomic to feel albeit I was expecting a smoother finish on the edges but overall I don’t know if there is another laptop that looks this good.

    –Case: I was surprised that Acer included a leather case that really makes this laptop look like a fashion statement a plus for me, one less thing to buy =)

    ======
    Cons:
    ======
    –No adapters: I was surprised that Acer didn’t include an ethernet dongle like they did with previous versions of this laptop which was disappointing since I need it for when I use the laptop at work

    –Bloatware: this is typical but Acer like any other company included sponsored apps and their own homebrew apps of their own.

    –Speakers: speakers are located on sides of the laptop near the bottom so the sound comes out muffled but I’m a headphone type person so this doesn’t bother me much.

    ====================================
    Answers to questions asked/ Updates
    ====================================
    –Fan: the fan doesn’t make a peep even on huge overload of online gaming which was surprising but the laptop does heat up at the rear end of laptop (hinge area) if you block the vents on the bottom.

    =====================Update: July 18, 2013 (Day 3 with Laptop)=====================

    –Cooling: when the manufacturer said to avoid blocking the vents they meant it, the laptop started to get moderately hot. Although granted I was running a lot of adobe software (photoshop, illustrator, dreamweaver, fireworks, etc…) the laptop fan didn’t make any noise which was good. Just needed to remember that this isn’t a desktop.

    –Vent location: air enters and exits on the back bottom vents that stretches across the entire back (below the hinge side).

    –SSD Space: 195GB are available after you remove most of the bloatware.

    –Battery During Heavy Use: When I was running the laptop with Adobe Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and fireworks I was able to get to 6hours and 13 minutes of constant runtime which was awesome to me as a website developer on the go.

    –Battery life (100% brightness): around 7 hours if at 99% full battery (please note the S7 comes with an automatic sensor like your smartphone to adjust brightness so the battery will last longer, automatically on by default)

    =====================Updated: July 19, 2013 (Day 4 with Laptop)=====================

    –Changed from 4 to 5 stars, decided 1 star off for speakers didn’t make sense when it’s an ultrabook and I use my headphones most of the time.

    –Updated some of my statements on battery life, this was after bloatware was removed and I had Kaspersky 2013 and skydrive desktop app always running in the background, automatic updates and scans does drain the battery faster (no breaks)

    –Automatic Brightness: to turn off automatic brightness control…

    Returning (BEWARE Fundamental Hardware Issue), September 23, 2013
    By 
    Scott Reisig (NEW YORK, NEW YORK, US) –

    This review is from: Acer Aspire S7-392-9890 13.3-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook (1.8 GHz Intel Core i7-4500U Processor, 8GB DDR3L, 256GB SSD, Windows 8) Crystal White (Personal Computers)
    While certainly a beautiful product, the hardware has a specific issue where it is thought the grounding plate can easily become jostled resulting in the laptop randomly shutting down. The issue was detailed extensively on Acer’s support forum for last’s year (Ivy Bridge based) S7. Apparently Acer DID NOT fix the flaw for this Haswell based S7. The original thread discovering the issue is here:

    [...]

    I bought this device for my fiance’s use for medical school. She was very delicate to the machine with simple non-computational intensive tasks. The machine started to randomly shut down within the first week or so. When contacting Acer and going through their troubleshooting scenarios, they realized (as I already had) that it was not a software issue, but a hardware one. It was arranged to have the ultrabook sent to their facilities in Texas for repair. The outrageous part here was Acer has the audacity to ask that I PURCHASE A SHIPPING BOX AND PAY FOR THE SHIPPING! Due to the time constraints of my fiance’s need for a computer, I shipped the ultrabook overnight delivery hoping to reduce the turnaround time. Total cost to shipping with insurance (valuing the device at $1600) $145……………………..

    Days go by, calling Acer to get a more specific status other than (received, in repair, etc.) is futile. We finally received the ultrabook 8 days later. The paperwork stated they needed to “reseat the motherboard and update the BIOS” but it did not specify what exactly was the issue. With my fiance happy that it’s back, all is well (even though I’m still ticked I needed to pay for the shipping of a brand new defective product). Within another week…..the issue is back…lovely…….

    Calling Acer, this time not interested in runarounds, I state the device is defective. Not surprisingly they wanted me to PAY AND SHIP it back to them. I instead demanded that they send a brand new S7 (non-refurbished which many manufactures sneakily do) to me. Once I confirmed the new ultrabook is non-defective, I will send back the defective device. Of course Acer would not do such a thing. You know, the common customer service required for any PC vendor. I asked to speak with the supervisor, was told they were busy and will call me back in 30 minutes. No call………..

    Frustrated I call Amazon. Explained the situation (the ultrabook was 8 days past its return period). Amazon agreed to allow me to return the device and provide a refund. This is exactly why I’m a Amazon customer. Fantastic customer service. Acer not so much. Defective products happen from time to time, but making the customer pay out of pocket and waste their time is NOT customer service, it’s garbage.

    Acer did manage to call me back 8 hours later “ready to talk”. I informed them I will be returning the device to Amazon and getting my refund. The supervisor said “Sorry”, then click…….

    Great new Haswell Ultrabook with a few glaring flaws, August 5, 2013
    By 
    J. McMahon (Grass Valley, CA United States) –
    (REAL NAME)
      

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Acer Aspire S7-392-9890 13.3-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook (1.8 GHz Intel Core i7-4500U Processor, 8GB DDR3L, 256GB SSD, Windows 8) Crystal White (Personal Computers)

    I have a short, but demanding list of requirements in a laptop. I regularly travel internationally and I use my laptop for both normal office tasks and high-performance processing.

    My list is:
    Lightweight, 13 or less, 3lb or less, full HD screen or better, Core i7 CPU, 8GB RAM or more, 256GB SSD+, good battery life ~5+ hours. I’m unwilling to budge on any of these items. This makes for a very short list of potential laptops. In 2011, ONLY the Sony Vaio Z (my current laptop) offered all these features, but is getting long in the tooth. This year, there are more options, and the Acer S7 appears to be an attractive one.

    Pros:

    Battery life. 6-8 hours under normal WiFi, 60-80% brightness, browser, video playback, Outlook usage. Typcial business usage.Battery life is great, as I believe it will be on many/most Haswell-powered lightweight Ultrabooks. I’m pretty confident they could slap the new chipset and CPU into last years’ hardware and nearly double battery life. It’s amazing. But that’s nothing specific to this laptop. The new Sony Vaio Pro 11/13 also see the same battery benefits.

    Fan. This system is silent. Even under load, the system occasionally got warm, but was always extremely quiet, the fans were imperceptible.

    SSD speed. Amazing read speeds, middling write speeds. Has 2x 128GB Kingston SSD’s in a RAID0. Now that Intel’s RST supports TRIM in RAID, these SSD’s should last plenty long even in a RAID. Boot times and load times were good as expected. I’d expect the same kind of performance with any other Haswell laptops with SSD’s.

    Build quality. Looks nice. Feels premium, solid, and tough. No flex, no screen wobble, which is big for a touchscreen laptop. Unfortunately, the edges of the screen are quite sharp, which seems strange and unnecessary.

    Screen. A good quality, good color, full-HD screen. Has some minor light bleed at the corners, but is only visible on full black. I’d hoped to see the model with the 2560×1440 screen, but it appears this isn’t available yet.

    Speakers. I’ve seen other reviewers knock the speakers. Coming from the horrific speakers on the Vaio Z, anything is a step up. I found the speakers to be reasonably good, with the note that they do face down from the front edge of the laptop. This means if you have it on a hard surface you’ll get good sound, but on a soft surface or on a lap, the sound may be muffled.

    Leather case is neat and attractive.

    Cons:

    Keyboard. Tactile feedback is good, keypress depth is good, backlight is nice, BUT… The keys don’t consistently register unless pressed down from the center. That is to say, if you’re used to touch-typing on another keyboard and you try to use this one, you’ll regularly have to go back to re-press keys that aren’t registering. Here’s what’s happening, if you press a key, but don’t press in the center, the key goes down far enough that the tactile feel would have you think it’s registered. That’s to say you actual feel and hear the “click” of the keypress, without the key registering. This alone was a deal-breaker for me. Maybe it’s something that can be fixed in software somehow, maybe by making the keyboard more sensitive to these “partial” presses, but this made typing on this laptop irritating and unwieldy. I fear this is a hardware design issue that would be unfixable. I suppose I could have persisted to try to ensure I press each key hard and perfectly in the center, but I was too frustrated to try.

    Other haven’t had the same problem, so it is possible my unit was defective, but still, the experience was bad enough that I wouldn’t want to try again.

    Clickpad. Yet another new generation of touchpad that seems worse than previous generations. I don’t know why touchpad technology seems to be going downhill, but this seems like a good example. The pad feels just like a Macbook touchpad, but without the great driver implementation that Apple has. It’s a single piece of material, with no physical left or right-click buttons. It looks nice, but that’s the end of the similarities. It’s reactive and sensitive as well as adjustable. Despite all the configuration options, I couldn’t get the touchpad to work in a way that felt natural and for this reason found it uncomfortable to use the touchpad much of the time.

    Here’s the problem:
    When clicking, whether by pressing where pointing to click, or by pressing the lower left corner of the pad to click at the same time as pointing, the cursor would often move slightly, meaning that I would often have to try two or three times to click accurately if I was trying to click on something small. If you turn off scaling, 1920×1080 on a 13″ screen means everything is pretty small…Usually these types of touchpads (I’ve used plenty) have a designated dead area near the bottom that you can use to left or right click without that touch being…
