Using this computer now, paid about 100 bucks more than this deal... Definitely worth it. Not really for gaming, and the battery doesn't really last more than 4 hours. But it's light, runs what I need it to run. The track pad is a bit weird as far as multitouch commands (I.E. when I'm trying to scroll down with two fingers it decides I told it to go to the previous webpage.) Also, the arrow keys are ridiculous. The left and right keys individually as large as both the up and down keys combined. The resolution is also a bit small, but that's consistent with most laptops these days. 1366x768 is the best you can get out of it, which can be a bit... short.

I love this thing, despite a few shortfalls. The price can't be beat, this thing is definitely worth 400 bucks.

Edit: The audio is pretty nice for a laptop, thanks the to Beats speakers and drivers.

I'm in the market for a new computer to surf and do writing/coding in. I won't be gaming or recording music/editing videos or anything heavy. Would this laptop be better for those functions over a chromebook?

@bucketofnails88:

Short answer: Yes and no.

Long answer: If you're just surfing and writing/coding, practically any laptop will do. I use my dinky little netbook for the same purposes. The one thing you may want to consider is an SSD (like in an ultrabook) because that'll speed up everything. You'd be hard-pressed to find a laptop within this pricepoint that has an SSD built in, but you can always upgrade at a later date.

Is the $50 rebate included in the price or is that in addition? So it would be $349?

vote-for2vote-against

no the $50 is already included in the $399. So the price will be $399

I ordered mine on Oct 12th and got a tracking # for UPS on Oct 16th, but there's been no activity on it. Anybody actually get this item yet or has seen any activity on their UPS tracking #? I know ship times are slow for this site, but it's usually not this slow...
