I've had the Spin 7 with the same specs for about 8 months. I just received the Swift 7 today. Both preform about the same of course. If you purchase this device because it's thin and lightweight you will not be disappointed. If you do your research and know what you're purchasing, you will not be disappointed. For these reasons I give it 5 stars... I keep a small bag of accessories in my truck so I have the connections I need, if I need them. I'd say 95% of the time the bag stays in the truck. As far as performance goes, it is a great production device for me. I use it for network device configuration, manufacturers site administration, spreadsheets, email, internet and anything else you would expect and IT Director to do. It fits its purpose very well. Great job Acer.
This is probably the closest thing to a Microsoft Surface Pro. Honestly this unit is not that much slower than the $799 Core m3 version at less than half price when you factor in the keyboard and stylus/pen. The Surface Pro including touch cover keyboard and pen comes to a cool $1027 on the least expensive configuration, and this unit is $439! Why would you get a Surface without keyboard and stylus? So your total cost comparison is really $1027 vs $439... Overall it is as close to perfect as you can get for a Surface clone --- at less than half price!
