Photoshop elements maybe, but I don't know if the ACR version included has caught up with LR4.

While the processing engine may get updated the feature set in PSE ACR is a cut down version of ACR that ships with Photoshop and lacks a large number of the more advanced controls. For this reason it doesn't really work as a LR replacement when it comes to RAW processing.

Personally I much prefer the PSE organiser interface as it is more user friendly and less cluttered. If I could buy an upgrade for the version of ACR that comes with PSE I would happily do so and not use LR.
