Anti-reflective Full-HD display, Very good application performance
The Aspire V3-772G (RRP 1,499 Euros, ~$1992) with the brand-new Haswell platform can certainly not be criticized for the performance: 99% in our sub rating is an excellent result. The 17-inch notebook offers workstation performance in regard to the quad-core CPU, graphics card and storage solution.
Good workmanship, Extremely thin case
Without question Acer delivers an interesting and high-quality 13-inch ultrabook. It's the better S5-391, because the S7 has by far the higher quality display panel. The Full HD screen competes with the Samsung's Series 9 900X3C-A04DE (HD+) and the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A (FHD) and can also be operated with fingers. Strictly speaking, the Zenbook has the ultimate IPS panel.
Superb quality, Beautiful IPS screen, Good performance, Good keyboard
The Acer Aspire S7 is one of the highest quality notebooks we've reviewed; the design looks great and the attention to detail is outstanding. The 13.3" full HD display is bright, beautiful and has unlimited viewing angles thanks to IPS technology. Touch works great thanks to the unique hinge design with progressive resistance. Additionally the Aspire S7 has a good keyboard and excellent overall performance.
Aspire S7 - Beautiful but not completely perfect
The Aspire S7 line has quite a few models with flavors of processors, screen size, and what not. One of the newer models is the 9427 iteration. I have used it for about 3 weeks now, and the S7 is a very well designed product, well thought out, and durable. The aluminum chassis is a things of beauty and durability, making the ultrabook lightweight as well, 2.8lbs. The bottom is a tough plastic or polycarbonate which is well designed and looks very good.
Good performance, Excellent battery life
If you're in the market for a Windows 8 ultrabook and the relatively high price doesn't scare you off then you'll no doubt dig the Acer Aspire S7. With its list of speedy components, amazing display and svelte size, it pretty much is the Windows 8 ultrabook to beat right now.
Beautifully designed, super-slim
Acer has produced what we can easily call its most attractive laptop ever with the Aspire S7 13-inch Ultrabook. This incredibly slim and sleek laptop sports a stunning design that combines glass and metal to great effect, without sacrificing power or connectivity. It also offers a glorious 1080p IPS screen with 10-point touch and good speakers, yet can be had for a very reasonable price.
Truly luxurious product, with great attention to engineering detail
Ultimately, though, we do wonder whether the traditional Ultrabook design will work against the S7. There are a myriad other products coming out that blur the line between laptop and tablet, and one can't help but think that these will make for more compelling purchases. After all, if you can use your laptop as a tablet as well, why would you settle for a traditional laptop with touch features?
Full HD IPS screen, Premium feel
Acer is taking a step up into premium land with the S7. The AU$1799 price tag might seem steep at first, but given the full HD IPS screen and RAID 0 256GB SSD set-up, it's not too bad. The question is, will the buying public care about these high-end parts, or will they just see the price tag and walk away?
From our perspective, it's a great little machine, but it's crippled by its battery life.
Matte FullHD display, decent system performance
We found the Acer Aspire V3-771G-7361161.12TBDCakk lacking a Full HD display. The Acer Aspire V3-771G-736B161TMaii successor fixed this shortcoming: The 1920x1080 pixel LC display of the 17.3-incher is very bright, contrast-rich and convinces with wide viewing angles. While the predecessor featured a glare-type display, the Acer now comes with an anti-glare screen. In addition, the case no longer has a piano black finish.
Strong General Performance And Good 3D Performance
Acer's updated Aspire V3-771G-9809 continues to keep its very affordable $900 price tag while boosting a number of features over the model from six months ago. It offers some surprising performance thanks to the quad core processor and dedicated NVIDIA graphics but it does sacrifice the screen resolution and storage performance. Battery life is a bit below average as well but for many these will probably be minor concerns considering the price tag.
Acceptable noise level, Good sound
You need to pay particular attention to the price when buying the Acer Aspire V3-771G. There are great differences between the inexpensive entry-level configuration and the 'premium devices' like our test sample. Looking at the current street prices, it ranges between EUR 595(~$750) to EUR 1299(~$1650). The differences are dependent on the installed CPU, GPU, mass storage, RAM and optical drive.
Affordable Price, Strong General and 3D Performance
Acer's Aspire V3 771G is a surprisingly affordable 17-inch laptop with some good performance. At just around $900, it is one of the least expensive laptops on the market to feature both a quad core Intel i7 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M graphics processor. These combined make the system even capable as an affordable mobile gaming option. The system does have to sacrifice a few items in order to be affordable though.
A fast and affordable laptop, with a few small nitpicky drawbacks
I'm very impressed with the performance so far. As a test, I simultaneously ran a dozen windows in Google Chrome, an HD movie, BitTorrent, Warcraft 3, Photoshop, and Microsoft Word. The processor gadget in Windows showed that the processor was running at only 4 percent. It handles every game I've tested on the highest settings. So far I've played Call of Duty 2, Grand Theft Auto 4, Fallout 3, Warcraft and Borderlands. It also handles video editing 1080p HD movies without any lag.
Great graphics performance, Comfortable keyboard
For a sub-$1,000 15-inch laptop, the Acer Aspire V3 delivers the goods. A quad-core Ivy Bridge CPU and NVIDIA Kepler graphics give it multitasking and gaming chops, while the keyboard provides a comfortable typing experience. Sure, the display has a plain ol' 1,366 x 768 pixel count and the whole package weighs a backpack-unfriendly 5.8 pounds, but you at least get a DVD drive, strong selection of ports and decent audio.
Faster Core i5 Processor
Acer's Aspire AS5750-6414 takes their several year old design and updates it with a newer and faster Core i5 processor which is one of the few available for under $600. This is great for anyone that is looking for a low cost laptop that needs a faster processor. The problem is that the design is old and really needs updating. The lack of newer USB 3.0 or eSATA ports makes it difficult to do any high speed external storage updates.
Excellent Graphics Performance.
Acer's Aspire Ethos is certainly a desktop replacement class system as it is certainly larger and heavier than many laptops. In exchange for portability, it offers some solid performance thanks to a quad core processor, fast graphics processor and larger high resolution display.
