Unfortunately, the Acer S5 isn't the savior that we've been waiting for. Even with a budget exceeding Intel's $1,000 target, the S5 is a victim of compromise like so many others. Intel's i7-3517U processor, 4GB of RAM...

The Acer Aspire S5 looks good and performs really as well as we would expect of its high-performance hardware. It is extremely light and slim, thus very easy to carry along. The MagicFlip panel is certainly something you would like to show off for...

We love the looks and the build quality. The Acer Aspire S5 not only looks and feels like a premium product, it's extremely thin and light too. Yet the Ultrabook doesn't feel flimsy and we'd trust it on the road. The MagicFlip is an interesting...

This 13.3" ultrabook is one of the fastest and most responsive of its kind. However, it gets only 4 hours of battery life, there are a few issues with the finishing and the inferior screen brings its overall score down to three stars....

The Acer Spire S5 is a pretty decent ultrabook, with a great chassis design and overall snappy performance. While the benefits of the MagicFlip panel are moot, there’s no denying that the 11mm profile of the Aspire S5 is impressively thin. Of course,...

With the Aspire S5, Acer has the slimmest 13.3 inch ultrabook on the market and also one of the fastest, but they fail to address some of the other important aspects of a proper ultrabook: the screen, the keyboard and the battery...

Acer has created a very interesting Ultrabook with the Aspire S5, which they have clearly positioned above the existing Aspire S3. The retractable connectors are a fun gimmick, but the presence of a Thunderbolt connector is even more exciting. It's a...

There’s no point beginning a review of the Acer Aspire S5 with a discussion of anything other than its approach to ports.Look at the sides and back of the S5 and you’ll find almost none: An SD card slot, headphone jack, and power port are the only...

The world's thinnest Ultrabook doesn't scrimp on power or usability, and this is a real play to the high end for Acer, a manufacturer that has often focused on mass-production for the low-cost end of the market. It's easy to fall in love with the Acer...

The Acer Aspire S5 is an odd duck. It is extremely thin and provides excellent performance in some areas. We're unaware of another Ultrabook that can match the Acer Aspire S5's hard-drive performance, and most Ultrabooks also will be dusted by its Core...

I've always been a fan of black computers, which seem somehow more sophisticated than Apple's chosen silver look and certainly more so than the colorful palettes on the Lenovo U310 and others. The S5 oozes business class: the dark gray, brushed aluminum...
