Acer's Second Generation S7 Ultrabook with Haswell and HD Display Now Available in the U.S.
Acer made some key improvements to its S7-392 model, starting with the fact that it now ships with Haswell inside. According to Acer, battery life is improved by 33 percent, and a quieter fan with second generation "Twin Air Cooling" technology keeps the system chilly without raising a ruckus.
There are two models to choose from. The first starts at $1,450 and includes a 13.3-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) IPS display with multi-touch support, Intel Core i5 4200U processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, 128GB solid state drive, HD webcam, a pair of stereo speakers, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, SD card reader, and a 4-cell battery good for up to 7 hours of run time.
The second model runs $1,700 and includes a faster processor (Intel core i7 4500U clocked at 1.8GHz), twice as much RAM (8GB), and double the amount of solid state storage (256GB).
Both configurations are available to purchase now.
