The screen is bright and crisp, the text is easy to read.
Call it confirmation bias - I will never buy an Acer product again - terrible experience.
It's beautiful, it's quick, it's portable, and it's amazing.

I got this laptop as a designer since I'm always showing clients and others my works. It's always handy to have when I need to mock something up and design on my laptop, on the spot, and in front of them.

It's extremely fast, especially since Acer included it's "instant on" feature. My PC at home takes about 1 minute to load up before I can use it and start opening applications, on the contrary, this baby is on within seconds and ready to go. The core i7 processor also makes this a speed demon when you're opening up applications like photoshop, illustrator, indesign, or any CPU heavy applications you throw at it. It handles them all quick and easy unlike any other laptop I've ever used. The 240GB Solid State Drive or SSD is blazing fast, both read and write speeds. Large files can be transferred in seconds when before it may have taken minutes on another laptop with a standard 5400RPM or 7200RPM Hard drive. Though at only 240GB, you are limited. This isn't a laptop you'd store your entire music, movie, and entertainment collection onto. You can still fit a ton of stuff onto 240GB, but I'd install all necessary applications first, and then add the fun stuff for last so you know you have room on your hard drive.

The speakers sound surprisingly good considering how thin and small the body is. They aren't anything amazing, but better than most laptops built in speakers. A cheap pair for 2.1 stereo speakers for home use would be a lot better though, especially if you listen to music or plan to watch movies.

The webcam is really clear and I tested it with a video call on Skype. In lower light it tends to muddy and darken everything, but in a bright and well lit room everything seems to be fine and look as it should.

This laptop was a replacement for my Macbook, which had reached the end of its usable life. I decided not to buy another Mac, because I am having to spend an ever increasing amount of time remoting into my office computer (PC) with a new job I took last year, and this process is seamless from a PC->PC but not so much from a Mac->PC. I was pretty bummed about being forced to leave the Macbook world, but I'm pleased to report that I got the best of both worlds with the S3: an Apple-like physical experience on a Windows computer.

Style -- The S3 is almost IDENTICAL to the Macbook Air, so I really wasn't forced to carry around an ugly PC like I'd feared. Are there some minor differences in styling between the two? Sure, but they're pretty darn close. I'm obsessive about design/style/looks, and I am very very happy with the styling of the S3.

Durability -- The S3 is pretty solid. Unlike other ultrabooks that I looked at, the S3 is sturdy and not at all flimsy. I don't feel like I have to baby it.

Portability -- WOW! I can't tell you how much I love the thin, lightweight design. Pictures don't do it justice; you need to feel it in your hands to fully appreciate how insanely easy it is to carry this thing around or let it rest in your lap.

Performance -- I run a number of resource-intensive applications (Photoshop, Illustrator, Visual Studio, Skype, etc), and it handles them all effortlessly. Also, the SSD drive is definitely worth the money. Boot time is crazy fast, sleep restore is near instant (<1sec), and I love the silent operation w/ almost no lap heat.

Overall -- Can't recommend this computer enough. I've always scoffed at PCs since converting to the Apple world, but this one won me back. I actually own a PC I'm proud of... never thought I'd say that considering my love for Apple products.

OK I am not going to repeat all the positive comments but rather would like to post a solution which I came across. OK so some people commented about losing or dropping wireless connections. Well it started to happen to me to. Now I am IT security professional and at first I was checking patches etc. Then I read a genius comment which is so simple and works. So here is the solution.

Do the following (Windows 7)
1) Go to Control Panal

2) Choose Network and Sharing

3) On the left hand side choose "Change Adapter Settings"

4) Right click the Wireless Network Connection and choose properties (it is the last option)

5) Choose the top option "Client for Microsoft Networks"

6) Choose Configure on top

7) Go to the Power Management Tab

8) De-Select "Allow the computer to turn off the device to save power"

Save and close.

I did some additional analysis of this issue there is one additional step you need to do.

9) Go to control panel and POWER OPTIONS

10) The default is BALANCED - Choose CHANGE PLAN SETTINGS

11) On the bottom choose CHANGE ADVANCED PLAN SETTINGS

12) Scroll to WIRELESS ADAPTER SETTINGS and click the plus sign to the left of it to expand the options.

13) Now click the second plus sign POWER SAVER MODE

14) Click on the the battery option and a selection box will open set both battery and plugged in to MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE.

Save and close all. This should solve the issue once and for all.

What was happening the power saver option was shutting down the wireless adapter to save power thus the unreliable connections. If the connection is not constant it was shutting it down. The setting is effected by these two places.

Problem solved :)

Happy Computing
