The Acer Aspire S3-391-9499 is a 13.3 Inch Ultrabook designed with style and portability in mind. It weighs only 2.95 lbs which makes it the ideal choice for someone who wants something light weight and compact to travel with. It also has a 3-cell battery that can hold up to 6.5 hours of charge.
It is an all-around solid laptop in performance and features. It has Windows 8 is installed on a 128gb SSD drive which makes everything load faster – including any applications which are installed on the SSD drive. However, there are some downsides to choosing something that has been optimized for maximum portability. The main one being that there is no larger internal hard drive and there is no DVD drive. If you must have these two things, the solution is to get an external hard drive and an external DVD drive to plug into the USB ports.
Overall, the Acer Aspire S3-391-9499 is a good choice for anyone looking for something sleek and light to carry around. If you are primarily using this at home, you might be more satisfied with something larger with the features of a regular notebook.
