Introduction

I was really hoping we'd get another laptop in before writing this review, but it just didn't work out. We've got a bunch of new systems and monitors coming in, but no laptops. We expect to start seeing more laptops this summer in preparation for students heading back to school.

 

This notebook we have in the lab today, the Acer Aspire S7-392-6807, is a variant upon the Acer Aspire S7-392 that we previously reviewed. It comes with a few notable changes, which we will discuss below, but it retains the same form, style, and outward appearance. Let's move on to the specifications.

 

 

Specifications, Configurations and Pricing

 

Our Aspire S7 features Intel's Haswell based Core i5-4200U CPU. This processor is a dual-core model with Hyper-Threading, which means that it features four threads. It also features TurboBoost, which allows the processor to overclock itself when under a low load.

 

The i5-4200U is coupled with 8GB of DDR3 RAM. 8GB should ensure a smooth-running system, even with multiple programs and web browser tabs open.

 

Graphics are provided by Intel's very own HD4400 GPU, a fairly capable graphics chipset that is able to provide enough graphics horsepower for most applications. Though gamers would definitely want to look elsewhere, the HD4400 GPU is capable of playing some games at low settings and resolutions. Windows 8 is installed upon a 128GB SSD.

 

One of the key factors that differentiates this model from the previously reviewed S7-392 is its screen. The S7-392 that we have in the lab today features a 13.3-inch multi-touch display, which features a WQHD resolution. WQHD is an advertising term that means the resolution is 2560x1440. The other differentiating factor is the use of the slower i5 processor.

 

 

Packaging

 

The packaging is standard Acer. The inner product box is protected by an outer plain brown box. While the system arrived safely, I would like to see a bit more foam or protection for the laptop.
