The Acer Aspire S7-392, successor to the original Aspire S7 which was unveiled back in Computex 2012, has finally landed in the states. With a beautiful design and an ultra-high resolution display along with packing Intel's newest 4th generation Haswell based Core processors, Acer's refreshed Aspire S7-392 turned quite a few heads this year at Computex 2013.



Currently, you can either purchase the good-looking ultrabook off retail shelves or purchase it via Acer's US website. There are only two variants available at the time of writing. While the base model packs a 1.6GHz Core i5 processor and a 128GB SSD (and costs $1,450), the more beefier version packs a marginally faster 1.8GHz Core i5 processor and twice the internal storage, i.e. 256GB SSD (and costs $1,700). The common specifications for both variants include a 13.3" Full HD display, HD web camera, 8GB DDR3 RAM and up to 7 hours of battery life. There's no word on when the 2560 x 1440 resolution display equipped Aspire S7 will land on the shores, but we'll surely let you know when it does.

Swap the over-priced Intel processors for an AMD A10-5750, drop the price to $999 and they'd sell a boat load of these.

you do realise that the price difference would be more like 50$ not 450$, right?

if it isn't, then they lose revenue.

the A10 is an extremely underwhelming processor I wouldnt want to be anywhere near it.
