This looks like a great deal. The only thing that concerns me is the wifi issue that people have been experiencing. Other than that I think this is a good buy. I personally can't justify another laptop purchase granted there has been so many deals on ultrabooks and laptops.
This damn website declined my card 3 times, but successfully charged me on my bank's end. I emailed them, and still haven't received a reply. I was charged twice for the $749.99 price, and another for the $699.99. The fact that these guys don't even have a number to reach them at makes it even worse. Now, I missed out on this "deal", and have to wait till they drop the charge that was supposedly "declined".
WOW, $650 for arguably the best 11.6 ultrabook available.
- 1080P IPS touchscreen with gorilla glass and aluminum lid.
- Backlit keyboard
- Very thin and light.
- Comes with external add on battery, bluetooth mouse, carrying sleeve.
Was debating between 11.6 ($799 at dealfisher) and 13.3 ($799 at MS store and free office 365).
13.3" was too big for my needs since I already have a desktop. Couldn't decide between the 2 but at $650, it's a no brainer...picked up the 11.6 for $650.
If you are debating, buy now before it runs out. The lappy is selling like hotcakes on ebay.
Haswell mobile CPU has been released but it is not a huge upgrade considering it's CPU performance increase over IVY. However, power consumption have been nicely improved as well as graphics.
The Haswell version of this lappy is not schedule to be release until Q3 of this year andI doubt we will see it at $650 anytime soon after its release.
EDIT: Acer has no plans for the S7 11.6" Haswell version of this Lappy.
Slick deal no doubt.

What is the battery life on this? I can't find it on the page.
From what I've read, expect about 2.5 hours with the internal battery and 5 hours with the external battery attached. Note, though, that the external battery is an eyesore and requires some care in attaching it.
