This is going to be a fairly short final thoughts as most of my thoughts regarding this system were covered in the previous review. The two factors we're going to consider today are performance and display resolution and how they fit into your needs.
Let's start with performance. If you go with this model over its brother that utilizes an i7 processor, you are giving up some CPU performance. GPU performance was mixed; one test showed that the GPUs performed the same, and another test showed this GPU performing somewhat slower.
If the upmost performance is of need, then you should pass on this model and go for the other S7 model we reviewed. If performance isn't so important, we can move onto the display and price.
If you want a high resolution display that is absolutely stunning, the S7-392 we reviewed today provides that. It comes with a few drawbacks, most notable of which include the performance and battery life.
If you want or need a high resolution display over performance, than today's model makes an excellent choice. The battery life and performance issues aren't huge drops, but just marginal ones that you likely wouldn't notice.
The one area that this system has a major advantage is cost. Due to the smaller SSD and slower processor, this model can be found on the Internet for around $1,250, about $250 cheaper than the faster model.
We awarded its big brother the Editor's Choice award for it truly being an Ultrabook. Thanks to the lower cost, better screen, and similar performance, we have no choice but to award this system our Editor's Choice award as we'd like this model much more than the previously reviewed model, which we already love.
