ACER ASPIRE S7-392 13.3"Touch (Intel Core i7, 1.8GHz, 256-8GB)
Design and build quality of the 1600 Euro expensive Acer Aspire S7-392-74508G25tws (NX.MBKEG.001) correspond to the beginning of his predecessor tested Acer Aspire S7-391-73514G25aws . A magnesium-aluminum alloy for the casing, a protective plastic coating on the underside, as well as Gorilla Glass 2 for the display lid gives the only 15 millimeters thin Acer Ultrabook felt a high rigidity and stability. The quality of a MacBook Pro Retina or Asus Zenbook Prime there is not zoom, but it weigh these two thicker specimens, some 100 grams more. Kleiner compromise: Since the S7 is extremely thin, the otherwise good and illuminated keyboard the stroke missing . Just a shame that Acer has waived F-keys. Just who works a lot with shortcuts, they will miss. The good sized XXL touchpad with Glass-feeling against it works just as perfectly as the very high resolution touch display in 13.3 inch format.
Core i7 and SSD-RAID for very high power levels (1.8 GHz Turbo Boost up to 3.0 GHz) provide a current Intel Core i7-4500U with integrated HD Graphics 4400, 8 GB of RAM and a 256 gigabyte SSD. The SSD consists of two 128 GB SSDs in a fast RAID0. However, the 8 GB of RAM running in single channel mode. Accordingly, our benchmarks do show a Ultrabook very high power values, but could be somewhat higher if the memory in Dual Channel mode would work. Especially the graphics performance would have benefited from it. Reduced interface number , the thinner the notebook, the less space for interfaces. In extremely thin Acer Aspire S7-392-74508G25tws this means that you can utilize the wireless connections wireless-n and Bluetooth 4.0, only two USB 3.0 ports, micro HDMI and a card reader available. VGA and 100-Mbit LAN's just a USB adapter - impractical.
Almost as sharp as a retina display.
The 13.3-inch touch display (IPS) technique provides images in the high-resolution WQHD is (2,560 x 1,440 pixels), the pixel density is very fine 221 dpi , so images look super sharp. Apple's Retina display with the current MacBook Pro 13 "with 227 dpi only a ticking sharper. While reflecting the Acer screen, but the same excellent checkerboard contrast (171: 1) and the very high brightness of 293 cd largely from. The Full HD display (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) of the previous S7 but lit with 367 cd again much brighter. mobility: energy for a working day , the Acer Aspire S7-392-74508G25tws could be useful as a model for many other Ultrabooks. It is 15 millimeters not only extremely thin and 1.3 kg very easily, but also provides the runtime test also good values. In contrast to the S7-391-73514G25aws (NX.M3EEG.005) by a good third of the stronger battery S7-392 supplies in office test run for good 8:28 hours - enough for one working day. In the video scenario, the battery power for 5:52 hours is sufficient. But since it in our top list are Ultrabooks, the new benchmark with extreme maturity and weights, it distorts the relative standings. The mobility score does matter worse than it is in reality.
