Update (11/1/13): I've been using this heavily since I got it and I still stand by this review. Hope this helps!
---------------------------------------------------------------

I've been wanting to upgrade my laptop for the past year or so, but until this laptop came out I couldn't really find one that matched what I was looking for. I wanted a laptop that was 11-13" since I'm a student and will be travelling with it relatively frequently. I also wanted good battery life since I don't always have access to an outlet. Finally, I wanted a laptop that had decent technical specs and performance. Finding a balance between all three of these facets was difficult but this laptop fits the bill (I'm currently typing on it right now).

Specs: 5/5
With one of Intel's new Haswell processors, I've noticed that Acer has really improved the battery life from their previous iteration of the S7. They've also managed to bump up performance by 10-15% according to recent benchmarks. Finally, the integrated graphics on this particular processor has also been improved slightly from the previous HD 4000 series. These specs are more than enough to run Microsoft office, watch HD video, browse the internet, run lab software, and do light gaming. I leave the more intensive games to my desktop. The SSD is quite snappy-- the boot up time from power button press to desktop is around 5 seconds. This is great as I'm often turning it on and off when I move around.

Screen: 5/5
The touch screen is quite nice at 1080p resolution. The laptop comes with the text set to increased size, but I'm currently running it at 100% size and I can read everything comfortably. The text is crisp and the colors are vibrant. The screen is quite bright.

My purchase was done through the Microsoft Store online in July as it was one of the few ways to get the device that early. Generally the laptop proved to be quick, quiet and absent of heat-related issues. It's a great looking device providing better than expected audio from the built-in speakers and admired by those who have seen it. My experience until the last couple weeks had been positive.
The Little Annoyances:
- It took a little time to get use to the Function keys requiring an additional key-press
- The color used to indicate the characters on the physical keyboard is like a matte gray on a matte silver background. Under certain lighting conditions when back-lit keys aren't fully illuminated, it is difficult to identify each key at a normal viewing angle.
- After waking the device, I often have to hit Ctrl-Alt-Del to get the mouse pointer to appear. This happens whether or not the laptop is connected to my usb 3.0 universal docking station.
THE BIG PROBLEM:
- After barely two months of use, the machine suddenly froze one day and became totally unresponsive. I eventually powered it off. At that point the "boot device" or hard drive was no longer visible to the system in any way shape or form. The device was over-nighted to Acer support in Texas as directed. After a week and a 1/2 I received the unit back but with ONLY 40gb of hard drive space TOTAL - less than 8gb of that was available for use. What followed was a lot of time on the phone with support and then Acer's level 2 support. Finally I was told that they would pay to have it shipped back for repair via ground and then "re-configure the Raid settings." Wanting to be clear, I asked what the drive(s) and volume(s) capacity would be after this repair.

I'm an IT consultant who visits several clients a week, so my required features in a laptop were light weight, great battery life, a 1080p screen so I can see more stuff at once and something sharp looking. The first version of the S7 (391) had notoriously poor battery life, so I was really happy to see the second version (392) got a bigger battery and the new Intel Haswell chip with its promise of superior battery performance.

The other laptops I seriously considered were the Sony Vaio Pro 13 and MacBook Air 13. I didn't choose the Sony because its carbon fiber body flexes too much for my liking, even if it's potentially less fragile. I passed on the MacBook Air because running Windows in Boot Camp creates some annoyances that I'm not willing to deal with (all of my clients are Microsoft shops so I need to run Windows).

***Great Things About This Laptop***

-The improved battery life promise is real. I'm getting 7 hours per charge so far with this machine. My typical usage includes MS Office applications, a few browser tabs to run cloud apps, a few more browser tabs to goof off, some other IT-related tools and constant remote desktop sessions.

-It's very light, thin and good looking; it was also nice to find a beautifully designed ultrabook that doesn't try to mimic the MacBook Air. Its good looks are accompanied by a surprisingly solid build quality. Surprising to me that is, because I've seen some terrible products from Acer in my 16+ years of IT work. Frankly it was a small leap of faith for me to make this purchase.

-The screen is amazing. Holy crap. Makes my old laptop's screen look like garbage. It's a high quality IPS panel, so it looks good from any angle and the 1080p resolution is razor sharp. Colors are vibrant.
