  • Windows 8

    The Redesigned Start Screen
    Windows 8 introduces a new Start screen, which has all the information you need in one place. The traditional Windows desktop screen has been replaced with a tablet style design featuring tiles. Tiles are customizable as well as update in real time. News, weather forecasts, sports, contacts, apps and more are available for you to use. It's all right there on the Start screen
    Seamless Integration of Multi-Touch Gestures

Whether you're browsing apps, reading a book or typing on the go with touch, you'll be able to seamlessly switch between all three interactive components. With the touchpad, Windows 8 allows you to use multi-touch gestures, such as swipe, drag, tap, slide, pinch-to-zoom and more
    To the Cloud
    With Windows 8, when signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your personal Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favorites. You can also connect to services such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and more
    Windows Store
    In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse thousands of apps. Choose from the featured apps or grab one of the most frequently downloaded apps to see what all the hype is all about. You can also see how other people rate apps. For certain apps, you can try it out before you buy it so you can make sure you absolutely want an app before you spend your hard-earned money on it

    Acer S7-392-9890 reviews

    Aspire S7-392-9890 Multi-Touch 13.3" Ultrabook Computer (Crystal White) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Underdog laptop surpasses expectation I use the laptop as a graduate student, which means having several office applications open as well as the internet and a host of other things to keep myself distracted. It's hyper-portable, great looking, and the interface is smooth. Windows 8 has a pretty shallow learning curve if you have an hour to spare, and as I try out more apps it is clear the computer can handle the workload and only becomes increasingly practical. Issues: Some apps when first installed did not install properly (eg: google chrome) or did not run well when first opened (eg: microsoft office) but upon reinstalling or reopening, there have not been problems since. I attribute minor issues to growing pains. Re: the keyboard,some buttons are less sensitive than others, this is a very minor problem. The biggest issue would be the touchpad, which is easy to trigger a click when typing. My previous acer also had this problem, but it seems to be a growing problem with ultrabooks in general. I still consider this minor enough to warrant 5 stars.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from do not buy this computer On 31/12/2013, I ordered this Aspire S7-392-9890 Multi-Touch 13.3 Ultrabook Computer (Crystal White) by Acer from this website, with a reference number 1027604848. However the computer refused to work 18 days ago. I couldn't start the Windows and I was staring at a black screen. It is now for reparation at the ACER service in the Netherlands, they say they need to replace the microphone, the keyboard, etc and I am still waiting for another part that needs to be brought from USA. It's terrible to invest so much money at then after 6 months not to be able to use the computer. It's very probable that I lost all my information as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE perfect laptop in 13 class Looking to buy a 13 ultrabook with highest specs now. Come down to the following choices. Sony Vaio Pro: Outstanding look. Lightest 13 laptop, beats Mac Book Air. The concern is the bad reviews from buyers. The majority complain are WiFi or overheat. Overheating is especially a concern to me because I had a VAIO laptop a few years ago and know an imperfectly designed internal will lead to overheat and as a result, system instability. That experience sort of keeps me away Sony. I wanted to give Sony a chance given the nice look of Vaio Pro 13. But once I learned that overheating is one of the issues buyers reported, I stop considering it. Asus Zenbook: Until Zenbook Infinity comes out, still maximum of 4GB memory only and no Haswell CPU. Spending money to buy a 'to be phased out soon' model does not sound like a wise decision. There are some risks if decide to wait for Infinity, too. First, it's a major redesign from zenbook, so stability could be a concern. Also, the resolution higher than 1920 does not appeal to me. Also, the rumor is that it will cost much more than regular Zenbook, probably due to the ultra high resolution. Dell XPS 13: It is actually very well designed and I might have chosen it if not that Acer S7 is slightly lighter and I already had a XPS from another source. More on comparison to S7 below. Samsung (series 9) ATIV Book 9: Similar problem to Zenbook Infinity. ATIV Book 9 Plus will have Haswell, 8GB memory, and resolution higher than 1920. But properly costs much higher and no release date yet. Lenovo Yoga: heavy, no Haswell, 4GB memory only. Basically not in the same league as above. Before buying Acer S7 I have a few concerns, mainly the occasionally bad reviews on trackpad and keyboard. Another is that myself found that the sharp edges of the lid might be a problem. I found none of them an issue after using S7 for a few weeks. Sharp edge is not bothering in everyday usage. The keyboard and trackpad, I would say they are just normal for a laptop. So I really couldn't explain what the bad reviews on keyboard and trackpad are about. I have a XPS 13, I compared them side-by-side. XPS 13 supposed has much better keyboard and trackpad according to the reviews in general. But myself couldn't tell which one is better or worse. So maybe some people are more sensitive to touch. General users like me probably couldn't tell any difference. I have been studying Acer S7 since its first generation. All the problem from early generation like wifi, short battery life, trackpad, fan noise, etc, have been fixed. This generation really is a perfect laptop to have. Pro: * Very beautiful. And I am liking it more and more every day. White is not my color but somehow Acer S7 just looks gorgeous and cute to me. Every time I touch S7, I look forward to the delightful experience. As a comparison, every time I need to use XPS, it just feel like a routine. * Quiet and cool: from my technical expertise, I know this is very important for longevity of a PC. * One of the most powerful specs including CPU, memory, and SSD you can get today for a laptop. * Power adapter is designed very well and with matching white color. * Comes with cover bag. * Not the lightest 13 laptop (Sony Vaio Pro takes the throne), but I believe it is second overall. Yes, that means it beat everyone else: ASUS, Samsung, Dell, and Mac Book Air in the 13 laptop class. * The touch screen is very good. I have a iPad 3 and think Acer S7's touch screen is on par with iPad, which is very good. Touch screen actually is what I prevent to buy because of their generally higher cost and no real usage in a laptop setup. But I am SO happy to buy S7 that happens to have a touch screen. It is actually very useful. Actually now I recommend people to buy a ultrabook with touch screen as a must have. * 2 years warranty while most has only one year. * The keyboard backlight feature is a delight to use. For comparison, XPS 13's light is too bright for my taste. Cons: * Power button placement could be better. But I learned how not to touch it by accident, so it does not bother me. * (not really a con) Only two USB ports but I had not heard of any 13 ultrabook has more than two. So it's not really a cons for Acer S7, but something you have to compromise for getting 13. I use a small USB hub to have more ports. Given that the cons are inconsequential, I must say that this laptop is THE perfect laptop in 13 class.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ultrabook! After checking out Lenovo, Apple, Dell I decided to purchase ACER S7 13.3 inch screen with Intel core i7 (7th gen), 8G memory and 256G SSD. This ultrabook performs very well and most importantly unlike other brands it doesn't get hot at all regardless how long you use it. It is not cheap, but if you are looking for an ultrabook with strong performance, touch screen, thinner than MacBook than this would be a good choice at the time of this review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect choice I wanted a laptop to travel with that was powerful and lightweight to use in conjunction with my video camera. This one is powerful enough to edit/render videos using Adobe Premiere Elements 12 plus it's lightweight enough to easily carry. The battery life has been amazing for routine use such as web surfing or basic video editing. It lacks a large amount of storage space but that is easily solved with a small-size 1 terabyte USB 3 storage device. The USB 3.0 jack also accepts USB 2.0 devices. I like the touchscreen or touchpad combination with the ability to use either one or both to make selections. So far, after 3 weeks, it's been a great little machine. Unlike some others, I have had no issues with typing or using the keyboard or touchpad. The lighted (at night)keys are not ideal to read from certain angles but for normal use they're fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product would recommend This is a great product and I'm glad I purchased. My dad got an ASUS Zenbook, but it was more expensive with less features and he also mentioned that ASUS customer service was a nightmare when trying to resolve an issue he had. The ultrabook looks and feels solid. Came with Windows 8.0, so I upgraded for free to 8.1 via the Microsoft Ap Store shortly after getting it. It comes in a nice tan case as a plus. Pros: -Solid and sturdy -Looks clean and professional. -Great price for what you get. -Fast with no issues. Cons: -Limited color options. I would have picked something different than white if I could have. -The space button feels a little loose, but not a major concern.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far Only had it a couple weeks, but love it so far. Windows 8 takes a little getting used to, but having the touch screen is awesome. Easily upgraded to 8.1with no problems. So fast and quiet. Only thing that is a little annoying is the back lit keyboard times out quickly, takes too long to come back on when you start typing and has no way to just turn it on all the time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best business & travel laptop As a traveling consultant, I spent many years carrying around laptops that felt like a boat anchor. My poor back couldn't take it any more, so I set out looking for an ultraportable. Something lightweight yet powerful, small but mighty. I definitely found it with the Acer Aspire S7-392-9890. First, it's a beauty. It's super thin with a Gorilla glass lid. The Acer logo glows from the lid when the lighting is dim enough to turn on the auto backlighting. It's so light you can easily hold it up between your thumb and a couple of fingers on one hand.The lid is sturdy, and the hinge is strong so there's no screen wobble once it's up, but the laptop can still be opened with one hand since the bottom is heavier than the lid. You can also lie the lid flat against a tabletop and reverse the view so you can share the screen with someone across from you while maintaining control of the keyboard and track pad (great for one-on-one presentations or training).I'm actually finding the track pad and keyboard the best I've had in many years. I've had difficulty with track pads in the past so I always carry a mouse with me, but this is one I can use. It's very responsive, and in combination with the touch-screen, I don't think I'll ever need to pack an extra mouse again.The speed is fantastic (especially with the Haswell chip and SSD). A cold bootup takes about 10 or 15 seconds, but because it goes into sleep mode when you shut the lid and automatically wakes when you open it back up, I'm not even finding the need to shut it down cold at all. It's ready as soon as I open the lid. I haven't timed it, but the battery lasts and lasts (between intermittent use and taking advantage of the sleep mode, I've had it going a full week on one charge. The display is clear and bright and the sound is ok from the external speakers, but I plugged in my B&O headphones, adjusted the dolby settings and the private sound is brilliant and crisp. I've not heard the internal fan kick on whatsoever. It comes with a leather sleeve (it looks and smells like real leather but could be a good leatherette as far as I know) but does not come with dongles for wired Ethernet or VGA projection displays. That, and some preloaded bloat-ware, are my only complaints. The Acer site is out of stock on the combo dongle I wanted, so I've had to buy 3rd party dongles through *. There are way too many hotels with shoddy wireless where the wired Ethernet connection will save me.All is all, the Acer is a beautiful and powerful tool. It's expensive, but I'm hoping that what I save in chiropractic work and shoulder massages will earn back some of that cash.
