WOW, $650 for arguably the best 11.6 ultrabook available.

- 1080P IPS touchscreen with gorilla glass and aluminum lid.
- Backlit keyboard
- i5
- 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.
