Acer has never been known as a super popular manufacturer of laptops. But then, the concept of Ultrabooks came along, and that all changed. Acer released the S7, and got props for creating one of the best super thin laptops running Windows 8 and using Intel Core technology. Enter, June of 2013, and a revision of that laptop has been announced: complete with an optional 2560×1440 display, bigger battery, and a new Intel Haswell processor, it aims to be the best in its category. However, just before the announcement, Acer sent me the current model without said improvements that will come out, later in the year. This is a review of Acer’s rise to Ultrabook popularity: the S7, first generation model.
