It runs on an Intel Core i5 processor. The previous price of this Ultrabook was $1,299, but now, it has been marked down to $999.99 letting you set aside $300 of your budget for other purchases.
3. Acer Aspire S7-391-9839

So, why should you spend an additional $300 for this one? Unlike the other two, this is equipped with the Intel Core i7 processor which will provide you higher performance and enhanced functionality. The price of the S7-391-9839 before was $1,649. However, Microsoft decided to provide their customers a whopping $350 discount. So currently, the item is priced at $1,299.
All of these Ultrabooks are powered by Windows 8. The store offers a free support for 90 days to the buyers too.
These products are highly recommended due to the absolute savings that you could get. Then, each of them possesses a visually stimulating 1080p display. Next, you can rotate the screens of these Ultrabooks up to 180 degrees in order for you to let them lie on their backs against flat surfaces or to transform the laptops into a tablet.
Despite the overwhelming features of the products, users and review sites have criticized them for the low quality of their speakers. In addition, the RAM only stayed at 4GB like the other standard Acer products. The batteries of these machines tend to get drained easily as well when operating on high settings. Even at an average performance, you can only get a maximum of 3-hour battery life.
But with awesome the savings that you will get from buying any of these products, it may not hurt to buy yourself a speaker with great quality to address the weak audio of the devices. Unfortunately, there’s no remedy for the average-sized RAM because Acer does not offer any service for it. You can only upgrade your RAM with service centers outside Acer which will definitely compromise your warranty. Lastly, for the battery, it’s either you buy an extra (which is expensive by the way) or always bring the power cable with you so you can leech it to a nearby outlet whenever the need arises.
