Mostly, anyway. You'll get even better battery life on some competing models, and people adhering to something of a budget might still prefer the 13-inch MacBook Air, the Sony VAIO Pro 13 or the Dell XPS 12. But the S7 is faster, and has the best screen of them all. It's a win for Acer, at long last, even if you do have to pay a little more for it.
