There's no price in your title or description.

It's $649 unless OP has some way to discount.

yeah you should put price every time or else you will get hammer.i was on the edge about buying this the last two days and it was $800 and today it just dropped down to $650. i've never bought acer but since this is haswell and i was looking to get a new laptop i decided to bite the bullet. hopefully i won't have to return this like i did with the 17hp from bb last week. that laptop was $400 but the quality was just not on par. anyone with this laptop i would appreciate some feedback

This is the same processor as the Dell 15R that was posted recently.

It looks like a good deal on paper but the 4200U is only 1.6ghz. My old laptop with a 2nd gen i5-2450M is 2.5 ghz and I paid $500 for it before Ivy Bridge came out.

Yeah, I know the newer processors are more efficient, etc. but I don't see the rush to upgrade to a processor with 50%+ less power.

50% less power is WAY off ... it is much closer than that. First and foremost, Haswell has an 11-17% performance increase over the same clocked Sandy. There are only .3GHz off in turbo mode, which is what you should be comparing anyway. Couple that with better graphics performance (boosts GPU 1000MHz in turbo), higher RAM speed supported, and over 50% more energy efficient ... "50% less power" is so far off. More like (possibly) 5%, if that.

Does anyone know if the keyboard on this is backlit? I've been searching for like 30 minutes and can't seem to find a solid answer. It looks like it doesn't, but I'd like to be sure.

Let me guess, IT professional, or you're in IT management.........Sorry I have "IT Pro's,or management buying PC"s from me based ONLY on the mhz of the processor...venting done

Hey, I'm sure you know where more about this stuff than I do.

For me, it doesn't make sense that people make such a big deal about the new generation of processors when they're trying to save money buying cheaper systems. If you're trying to get the most powerful computer you can, sure.

But why does the newer processor matter when you're only trying to spend $500 and you can get more power for that price in an earlier generation of processors? People are "wait for Haswell" and then they go out and get the bottom of the barrel model.

I will admit that I didn't realize this model had a dedicated graphics card. Not saying it's a "bad deal" just don't personally understand why certain people make such a fuss about new processors all year long.

Haha nope, not me. Like I said, I'm sure you fellas know more about this stuff than me but I doubt most people buying a $650 laptop are going to notice the difference between a 2nd gen 2.6ghz and a 4th gen 1.6ghz.

You're wrong about that...the battery life would be better, and that's noticeable...

So, you think someone that is looking for a cheap laptop values a little extra battery life enough to spend $100+ extra? You could buy a bigger battery or extra batteries if it was a concern and still be saving money.

Over 50% is not a "little extra battery life" ... That's the difference between 6 hours and 9+ hours.

Yes it has a backlit keyboard according to the review from the link below. This review has very good info about all the specs of this ultrabook. I am in for one for my mother in law since she is been looking for a touchscreen ultrabook with similar specs but way more expensive than this one.
