Scott, Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fast performance with SSD and Core i5. Boot from cold in under 10 seconds, wakes up in under 2 seconds.
Bad points:
30Gb of the 128Gb SSD was taken up by recovery partitions.

Only 60Gb of the drive remained as useable once system was installed.

5hrs battery life is a little lacking

Preinstalled with bloatware from Acer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I'm very impressed with this machine for the price. Overall good buy.

- Great spec. for the price.
- The form-factor and general build quality seem very good.
- Windows 7 reboots (i.e. shuts down and boots) in 10-15 seconds although I'll be throwing Linux on there at some point.
- 2 USB3 ports.
- I've not really got a handle on how good the battery life is yet so can't say either way on that.

Overall a very nice machine.
Bad points:
- No RJ45 jack.
- Max RAM is 4GB.
- SSD (and RAM) aren't the easiest to get to. I'm intending on swapping out the SSD for a larger one at some point.
- Non (easily) removable battery.

All small points which I can definitely live with considering the price!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Sleek stylish design.Very fast performance. I am able to start up and be able to be on-line within 20 seconds. Excellent value for money
Bad points:
The mouse area can be very sensitive. There are times when the cursor hovers over over an advert causing a new browser to open. This can be annoying. The only fault I can find in the design are the tab keys and page up and down keys. These could be bigger.

Rik, Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I have the i5 128Gb version, got it in a sale for 460, so at the time it was a bargain. Easily runs sims 3 and browsing is super quick, makes full use of a 5Ghz N router connecting at 300Mbps, noticable when connecting through a slower connection. Battery has lasted 5+ hours, I set power at max performance. Really does boot from shutdown in sub 12 seconds. Overall, just love it!
Bad points:
Need to have the screen at the right angle for a quality picture, wireless signal strength shows as lower than my old samsung netbook, yet the wireless speed is still much quicker.

Wierdly the 128 SSD only has 96Gb available due to partitions for recovery and hibernation, still better than an equivatent priced iPad tho!

Good points:
Acer Aspire S3-391 13.3" Ultrabook
Great machine looks fab, thin, light, fast (i5, 4gig, 128ssd). Battery life okay (so far). No trouble with keypad. Could have done with less bloatware and a slightly better keyboard (specifically backlight) would be much appreciated. All in all so far I'd recommend.
