The design and the look of the ultra book from Acer are quite commendable as it is getting huge accolades for it too. So it is time to plunge in, to check that whether this near to perfection ultra book from Acer really stands to a worthy to cost $1650.
OVERVIEW OF ACER ASPIRE 7
The Aspire 7 from the Acer comes in from the second lead of computers that were built by the Acer to test their home works. The latest released model from Acer, the Aspire 7 comes in with a pretty handy battery power and an above par standard of keyboard. The Aspire 7 from Acer hosts i5 processors with 4th generation powered to it. One good aspect of the latest released Aspire 7 is, though it has improvised on the backward areas from the previous S7 series. But it has not dumped its signature slim built in body compiled with chassis of Lenin white. The touch responsive screen from the same legacy still boasts to spill the boons.
DESIGN OF THE MARVELOUS ACER ASPIRE S7
The foremost important stand point regarding the Acer can be that they really have the brains to plan in a good computer. The previous model from the S7 series were poised in beauty and attractiveness with their aluminium white chassis and the Gorilla version 2 glass for the lid. The s7 aspire looks breath taking at the first impression.
The lid can be said is just some millimetres short in measurement from the deck. Though the configuration settings with the computers look quite appealing, but the computer does not look that incredible with the opening.
The placing of the power buttons at the extreme left seems quite a depressing part. It brings in the extra focus at the utilized blank space in the deck of the power button.
DISPLAY OF ASPIRE S7
The Aspire 7 from Acer comes in a classic 13.3 inches with pixel resolution of 1080 capacitive. The colour distribution in the latest released ultra book is quite evenly balanced. Special mention goes to the mixture colours like green, blue and yellow, which seemed to play a great job. The angles for viewing seemed to be quite broader than before. There was absolute ease when shifting from one 45 degrees angle to another. To the probing digits the 10 point responsive touch screen passed with style. The user interface of swiping through the apps and the menu was done with ease and poise. There was no such noticed in the browsing of the applications. In terms of brightness, the Aspire 7 scored well in brightness. It had 329 lux in comparison to Ative Book 9 which scored 280 lux.
We find at the bottom of the ultra book, the placing of the pair of speakers. The audio quality is barely that large to expect to fill in an entire small room. Though the audio credibility stands at standard point if it is targeted for a short group of listeners. The Dolby digital software tried to create little impact. The keyboard and the vocals were quite up to the mark, but the bass was a big letdown. The company has claimed that through the voice technologies they can be able to bring in some reduction of the outside noise while VoIP and video calls.
TOUCHPAD AND KEYBOARD
The Aspire S7 comes in with a island style keyboard. The keyboard features good space arrangement between the keys. The keyboard comes with backlight of electroluminescent quality; this helps the users to type in comfort in the dim lights. Though it has great keyboard, but the typing still needs improvements. In the thump test of ten thumbs the Acer S7 felt short by a minimal to cross the average words per minute by making it 50 words, where the average stands at 55.
TEMPERATURE – HEAT
The laptop comes in with a new improved system for the cooling of temperature of the ultra book. The twin air enabled hardware is quite a great tool as in one it brings in cool effect in the laptop at the same time it evades the hot air.
The Acer aspire s7 comes with 1.6 GHz processor of 4th generation Intel. The Acer has i5 powered processors in built in it. The ultra book comes in with RAM of 8GB. On the matters of portability it stands quite a flexible one, though a little after the Sony Vaio and Active Book 9. The Aspire S7 booted in the windows in a little more than nine minutes. In the file transfer test the Aspire S7 was lagging behind in copying some files. It did not reach to that average speed which was actually required. The battery performance stands at 6280 mAh. This clearly says that it can run for slightly more than 8 hours.
The computer comes in with a classic HD enabled graphics of 4400 GPU and VRAM of 128 MB in built in it. This clearly tells that the Acer has done their home work as the graphics quality is better than the previous versions.
AWARENESS OF SOFTWARE
It has brought in quite a few new innovations and sliced down on the bulkiness from its previous models. If taken on the positive side, one can see in a host of multimedia files like the Clear.fi media, docs and photos. These files not only track all the files but helps in maintaining the images and video to a great level. With the help of recovery management of Acer one can restore back the factory settings of the ultra book. The Skype video chat application is a third part application that comes pre loaded in it. The Acer aspire s7 comes in with a factory warranty on its software for 1 year.
The Aspire S7 comes in with good display and visual quality. The keyboard and the IPS supportive touch screens are quite a good one. The performance of the hardware parts also stands at quite a commendable position. The bad points lies in its [power buttons and the fan being noisy at times. The SSD is also not faster of the lot. If price can be reconsidered, then this can surely be a good buy.
