Here’s a truly gorgeous notebook with one fatal flaw. The Acer Aspire S7’s
0.47-inch-thick, 2.8-pound aluminum and glass chassis, 1080p screen, and dual 128GB SSDs make this Windows 8 ultrabook a real looker. We’d even be willing to cough up for its $1,649 asking price, if but for one thing: You’ll be lucky to get 4 hours of battery life out of this Ultrabook. A $150 sheet battery will be available in the near future, but Acer should have included in the box for free from day one.
