Acer has announced their latest flagship Ultrabook powered by the latest 4th generation Intel Core Haswell processor – the Acer Aspire S7-392. It’s basically an upgraded and improved version of their last year’s Aspire S7-391. The Acer Aspire S7-392 has improved battery life designed for all day computing, a 2nd generation Acer TwinAir cooling with less fan noise, and a refined electroluminescent (EL) backlit keyboard. Check out more details below.

UPDATE: The Acer Aspire S7-392-6832 and Aspire S7-392-9890 are now available for order. See specs, price and where to buy below.

The Acer Aspire S7-329 has a beautiful “Retina-like” 10-point touch 13.3-inch display at 2560×1440 pixel WQHD resolution that is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 2 on both sides of the lid. The Ultrabook was re-engineered to improve its battery life of up to 7 hours. Plus its built with the new light-sensing EL backlit keyboard, with a deeper keystroke.

Not only that it is built with the latest Intel Core Haswell processor, its storage solution is taken care of by a solid state drive in RAID 0 configuration. This significantly improves the read/write speeds of the Ultrabook as well as responsible for fast boot up and wakeup time.

It is unclear whether which GPU will power the Aspire S7-392, but it’s little brother the Aspire S3 will be powered by the NVIDIA GeForce GT-735M. Most probably the S7-392 will also be powered by the same latest GPU or even better, since it’s a flagship Ultrabook.

In terms of connectivity options, the Aspire S7-392 is built with wireless display technology or WiDi that lets you stream videos wirelessly to a HDTV. There’s also USB 3.0 ports and audio port.

Its body is made out of premium materials and features a dual-torque, T-shape hinge frame design to ensure wobble-free touch use.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe there is a typo regarding the display size. You put 260×1440 pixel. Doesn’t bother me, but you know how people are. ^_^ I enjoyed reading otherwise. I’m debating between this and the Asus Infinity. Any thoughts?

    • Luke says:

      Hi Douglas! Thanks for noticing. Yes, it was a typo error. It should be 2560×1440. I have already added the “5”. Thanks! ^_^

    I hope this one actually works, as opposed to the 391. Awesome looking machine, hurt having to send it back. Just hours after taking it out of the box I was on the phone with Acer Tech (which sucks BTW). A few days later back it went :(

    Hi Luke- the fan made a loud vibrating noise. Asked tech support if it was normal. They said no and to take out battery, drain power and reset BIOS. Remember, I just received it! They (Acer tech) told me to look at the owner’s manual on how to proceed. Anyway, I didn’t mess with the battery afterall and opted to update the BIOS. Granted, it reduced the noise, but ran hot! Contacted tech support again and they said to update BIOS, which I already did. The weird thing is that when I took the laptop out of the box, it had some smuges on it and when I registered it online for warranty, it showed it was already registered on 02/28/13 and this is on 6/20. Acer techs (I use the term loosly) said it was a technical glitch. I think it’s BS. They repackaged a return and tried to pass it off to me. So I sent it back to be exchanged. But I will call it in today and just opt for a refund. After taxes, this laptop was $1,865. Oh! Forgot to mention: bottom corners of screen were grey/ shadow like. Again, asked the geniuses at Acer if normal, answer no. I had the laptop for less than five days and spent hours with tech support and resoved nothing. Reminded me of Compaq. Anyway, reason I kept asking if all of this is normal: Needed to make sure they acknowledge defects. I also used chat support, easier to document. I tried to prevent issues upon return.

      Hi Val

      I see. Sorry to hear that. Things like warranty and defects can be stressful. In my opinion that was clearly not a brand new unit they sent you. I think it was already used or refurbished. I suggest that you check any laptop or ultrabook you order in the future thoroughly and return it immediately even if there is a slight defect. The Ultrabook was suppose to be great except for those defects. Did they refund you? Are you planning to get another unit from a different brand or store?

      Good luck!

    Hello Luke,

    I am looking forward to trying out the S7-392.I understand that it’ll be released sometime this month. If anyone knows, pls post. Not giving up just yet…
