I'm just going to come out and say it right now: If there has ever been a notebook worthy of the term "Ultrabook," then the Acer Aspire S7-392 is that notebook. From great performance and battery life, to excellent portability and design: the Acer Aspire S7-392 truly has it all.
Not only is it the most powerful Ultrabook we've had the pleasure of testing, but it's been one of the lighter and more portable designs. It's whisper quiet, it runs for hours on end, and it looks stunning.
The full 1080p IPS display is a thing of beauty; offering plenty of brightness and wide viewing angles, combined with 10-point multi-touch input support. The keyboard has been improved quite a bit from the older S7-391, and especially from the smaller S7-191.
Had this Ultrabook been available when I purchased my Haswell-powered Apple MacBook Air, I would have definitely gone for the more expensive and better S7-392. This thing truly defines the term "Ultrabook."
The one place where this notebook lacks is pricing. Coming in at around $1500 at the time of writing-check below for current prices-the system is a bit more expensive than what most people want to spend. However, if you are looking for the best Ultrabook money can buy; look no further than the Acer Aspire S7-392.
For all of the reasons above, and the results shown throughout the review, I have no choice but to award this system the Editor's Choice award. This system is bar-none, the best Ultrabook we have had come through our lab, and I can't wait to see what Acer brings to the table next.
