Hot Hardware have reviewed the Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook - here's an excerpt:

"The Aspire S7’s 13.3-inch display has all the right stuff, including a full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, LED backlighting, and ten-point touch. Of course, touch means fingerprints on your screen, but we found the Aspire S7’s display to be fairly resistant to smudges. That’s probably thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass, which covers the display and is built into the ultrabook’s case.

The display also features an IPS panel. In-Plane Switching is an important feature if you sometimes share your screen with friends or co-workers or care about accurate color reproduction. If you’ve ever tried to watch a movie on a laptop that doesn’t have a wide viewing angle, you know how much IPS matters: colors get skewed and dark scenes become unwatchable. That’s not an issue with the Aspire S7.

Anchoring the Aspire S7’s hardware is a 4th generation Intel Core i5-4200U CPU. A brand-new processor (it was launched only a few months ago), the 1.6GHz i5-4200U boasts dual cores (plus HyperThreading) and Turbo Boost speeds up to 2.6GHz. It also features an Intel HD 4400 graphics controller, which supports DirectX 11.1 and should offer better performance than the HD 4000 we’ve seen in recent ultrabooks."
