This sleek laptop resists fingerprints

Computing
[MUSIC]. What's the point of a great-looking laptop if it's covered with fingerprints? The Acer Aspire S13 doesn't have that issue. No shiny silver machine with a glossy glass screen here. It's a pure matte white with an anti-glare screen, so you don't get [UNKNOWN]. You're looking at a laptop constructed of aluminum and magnesium alloy, not plastic. And while matte screens used to be the sign of a cheap machine, this one's a crisp 1080p IPS panel which doubles as a touchscreen. Here's the kicker, we got over nine hours of battery life in our streaming video drain test. That's more than nearly every thin notebook we've tested except Apple's MacBook. You get all that plus a speedy Core i7 Processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of Solid State storage for $1000. I wouldn't recommend the Acer S13 to just anyone, though. The keyboard and trackpad has definitely given me some grief. It's a thin keyboard not nearly as comfy as MacBook Air or some of the best Windows ultra thins I've tried and the track pad sometimes jumps around. And while this laptop technically starts at $580 U.S. Acer tries to get away with a smaller battery, slower processor, and not nearly enough RAM or storage in the cheaper configuration. There's only lots of competition but then premium laptop and this Acer isn't my favorite. Put if you're tired of finger print and sunning your eyes is worth considering. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
