PCMark 7 is a great utility for testing a PC's all-around capabilities. It tests all aspects of the computer, from graphics performance to hard disk performance and attempts to put a score on it, which is not an easy task.
You'll notice that our results have been cleared out due to us updating the test to the latest version. The Acer Aspire S7-391 manages a score of 4724, a decent score for a notebook to achieve. Comparing to our archived systems (not fully comparable), the S7-391 is towards the top of the heap, only bested by the Maingear Vybe 15 Ultimate.

MobileMark 2012 is a premier benchmarking tool produced by BAPCo. It has several different scenarios built-in and allows you to choose which to run. It runs the test on battery life so that it produces both a score for the performance aspect and a run time for battery life.
For our testing, we chose the Office Productivity line of testing. The "Performance Qualification Rating" and battery life (in minutes) is reported below in the charts.
The Acer Aspire S7-391 performed very well for an Ultrabook in our MobileMark benchmark. It managed a score of 121 from a 13.3-inch machine. This is on-par, or better, than other full size systems that we have tested.
Battery life comes in at 212 minutes, or 3 hours and 32 minutes. This is a bit lower than other systems we have tested, but this is one of the lightest and thinnest systems that we've ever tested and you sacrifice battery life to have this sort of portability.
