The Acer Aspire S7 is surely one of the rare ultrabooks that features a backlight that’s controlled an ambient light sensor. Well, that’s not the only feature that justifies its high price of more than 1 lakh; there are dozens of features exhibited by S7 to fall under the category of some remarkable ultrabooks.
Powered by Intel® Core™ i5-4200 (4th gen) @ 1.6GHz the Acer Aspire S7 possesses a brilliant design. The all-aluminum unibody is extremely slim and weighs just 1.3kg. It also features a unique Gorilla Glass 2 layer over the white enamel layer. The response of Core™ i5-4200 with Windows 8 and 256 GB SSD is quite good. This is an ideal laptop for multi-tasking if handled with care. The Aspire S7 comes with 2 USB 3.0 ports with a single HDMI out.
The 13.3 inch of Aspire S7 supports a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The 1080p display of S7 is just the usual; i.e. not extra-ordinary; the black levels are not well handled.
The five row keyboard of S7 has a great response. The keys are soft and enable some fast typing. The battery lasts for 5 hours on regular use.
The Acer Aspire S7 doesn’t have a dedicated GPU; but it is a well capable machine for mid-range gaming. The all new Intel® HD 4400 allows you to play all PC games released in the year 2013 and will be released in the year 2014 in full HD resolution with a few heavy games that should be adjusted to medium settings.
Aspire S7 comes with 4GB DDR3 RAM with 802.11n Wi-Fi and is surely an alternative for Sony VAIO Pro 13.
