This review is from: Acer Aspire S7 S7-392-6803 Ultrabook Intel Core i5 4200U (1.60GHz) 4GB Memory 128GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 4400 Shared memory 13.3" Touchscreen Windows 8 Pro 64-bit
Pros: Great battery life (8 hours consistently) Fast (runs Path of Exile quite well; I also run Windows plus a Linux VM all the time with no issues) Tiny and lightweight Great display Backlit keyboard Comes with a Mini-DisplayPort adapter (I think) for Ethernet connectivity and additional USB ports
Cons: No serious cons, but here are some concerns:
Comes with Windows 8.0 out of the box instead of 8.1. I haven't upgraded to 8.1 yet as ultrabooks are notorious for losing functionality in the upgrade (function keys stop working, driver issues, etc.)
No option to enable Intel VT-x in the BIOS, even after upgrading to the latest BIOS version. Only an issue if you launch VMs from VMs (my workflow involves using vagrant to test app/config changes). Still 5 eggs since this is a big edge case, but no virtualization extensions makes it difficult to use this device for work.
Other Thoughts: Probably the best Haswell ultrabook on the market in this price range right now
