This is the crappiest machine I ever owned. The Wifi (Artheros) is buggy and looking around the internet not even Acer can provide an adequate solution. I ended up buying a USB wifi dongle. Windows 8.0 is crap. The machine is dead slow. Do not buy.
Hello there I got Acer S3 - 391 as a gift from US in Nov'12 It's a great ultrabook but for the past month and a half i have been facing 2 issues - Overheating and Reduced Battery Life (50-60mins only) I checked Acer Store here in India but they said it cant be repaired Kindly suggest if there's something that can be done (DIY) to replace the battery or anything that resolves these issues Would be great if somebody helps with this I use it for Office work (No gaming) Thanks Swapnil email@example.com
There is just one downside the screen cable is made by film. Film is easy to wear out, and it is really likely to literaly break in two within a year on normal usage. The screencable cannot be bought by suppliers, only online - and the price is 85 euros pluss shipping. My recommendation - Go buy something else, this product is not good.
purchase one. the 20GB SSD? Runs like it is not even there - slow startups and shutdowns just like a regular hard drive.
Battery life is not impressive but is passable. Portability and comfort of use is great. Windows 8 64bit is a good touch - stable computer with good response and pleasing to work with. But the 20GB SSD is a disappointment.

Very nostalgic to see again a noisy laptop such as this one - fan kicking up during install of a new application - almost forgot how it was, thank you to Intel ( and Acer ) and their Ivy Bridge processors for reminding us of the past.
Number one's successor. In late 2011, Acer launched its first ultrabook called Aspire S3 on the market. Now, the new 13.3 inch Aspire S3-391 ultrabooks featuring Ivy Bridge innards follow for starting at EUR 799. We tested whether the devices are worth their money.
