Acer Aspire S7 Slim Ultrabook

in Slimbook

Berbeda dengan Netbook Asus, Ultrabook Acer Aspire ini memiliki tampilan yang lebih tipis. Meskipun ketinggian atau ketebalan dari Netbook Ultrabook ini tipis tetapi unit dari dasarnya kuat serta chasis tidak dapat ditekuk meskipun panjang. Hal ini merupakan salah satu keunggulan pada Ultrabook Aspire One S7 ini.

Dengan tampilan edgy yang memiliki daya tarik khusus secara visual memperlihatkan bagaimana kecanggihan dari ultrabook ini. Berikut adalah spesifikasi dari Acer Aspire S7-391 Slim Ultabook.

Communication
The above mentioned interfaces are supplemented by DraftN WLAN and Bluetooth 4.0. But these are also found in low-cost devices, such as the Lenovo IdeaPad S206. The 1.3 MP webcam delivers a decent picture in low light, though not very good. As long as the subject doesn't move, the contours are sharp and the blurred areas are limited. The colors have a high contrast. The status LED in the upper TFT bezel indicates operation.

Accessories
The high-quality packaging includes as standard a slim case, which is optimal for the 12-millimeter notebook. Then we have the two afore-mentioned adapters (Ethernet, VGA). Those who want to use a standard HDMI will need another one. There is no disk with the Windows 8 Pro (64 Bit) or the drivers. The user is prompted to burn a recovery backup via the Recovery Manager.

Software
We see less in terms of software features. While Sony and Samsung bundle all the tools under one roof (Vaio Care), Acer seems to have a different tool for everything. This might be an exaggeration, but tools like "Power Button Function" make us doubtful. There are no full versions of commercial software. CyberLink's Media Espresso is pre-installed as a free version.

Warranty
24 months of Collect & Return (will be picked up) is the standard warranty for Acer's high-priced notebooks. The devices under 1000 Euros (~$1290) come with only 12 months of Bring-In service. This can extend up to three years for 90 Euros (~$116); for 100 Euros (~$129), Acer sells the Notebook accident and breakdown cover. Its duration is one year and covers, for example, theft and burglary (including in a car) and breaks or damages caused by liquids.

Hey, great blog, but I don’t understand how to add your site in my rss reader. Can you Help me please Online Storage Reviews

The acer s7 is actually getting slimmer on the next model. Even the v5 and s3 are similar in its sleekness. The thing I love about acer ultrabook laptops are the warranty. The 24 month warranty on the aspire s7 is enough for any ultrabook or laptops.
