Specifications, Configurations and Pricing
The Acer Aspire S7-391 that we have in the lab today is specifically the S7-391-9886. Being a larger Ultrabook, it comes with a higher performance Intel processor than its smaller sibling. The S7-391 is equipped with Intel's Core i7-3517U, a low-voltage dual-core part clocked at 1.9GHz. It supports Intel's Turbo Boost technology, which can dynamically clock the processor all the way up to 3.0GHz. Furthermore, the 3517U features Intel's HyperThreading technology, which presents the operating system with a total of four threads.
Coupled with the 3517U is 4GB of DDR3 RAM. 4GB of RAM follows my general rule-of-thumb of 1GB per thread available. Graphics are provided via Intel's somewhat capable HD4000 integrated graphics processor, which is the de facto Ultrabook graphics processor.
The screen features a resolution of 1920x1080, which makes touchscreen use of the desktop interface nearly impossible to do. It also makes seeing text in desktop mode quite hard and some settings will need to be adjusted for most users.
The system features two 128GB solid-state drives in RAID 0 for the ultimate read and write performance. It's rather incredible that Acer managed to squeeze dual SSDs into the thin and light frame that the S7-391 is built upon. This RAID setup provides quick boots and shut downs, as well as fast application load times. Windows 8 64-bit is loaded onto the SSD as Windows 8 provides the best touchscreen compatibilities.
The system was packaged inside a sturdy box. The outside of the box showed a side profile of the system along with the various specifications. This box, I imagine, would normally be shipped inside of another box for protection.
