@lxl: Ahhh, I didn't catch that.
It doesn't even say the amount of the Gift Card on the amazon site until you click on it. Why wouldn't they want people to know?

@ncchan45: amazon has this "Purchase an Intel-Powered Ultrabook, Get a $100 Amazon.com Gift Card" promotion http://goo.gl/PE3zV personally I like "Toshiba Portege Z835-P370 13.3-Inch Ultrabook" more: 6GB RAM, 128GB SSD...

I had one of their refurbed netbooks and slapped some more RAM in it and it was a road warrior for me. Limited, sure, but great for what a netbook was supposed to do. In the era of the Ultrabook/Air, the netbook's time has past, so I'm thinking of getting one of these. I know some folks have an issue with Refurb, but as a former Consumer Electronic professional, I can tell you it's a great way to save on gear and get the same backup as what you get if you pay for a shiny new box and "first private citizen to turn it on" rights.

PS -- the Hybrid drive thing is pretty awesome.

Also, even with a $100 card, ($800-100) you are still looking at $100 more for a same-warranty product that has been completely gone back over (and sometimes given non-problematic sourced parts that caused failures in the first place.)

@waldoshi: generally I don't have problem with refurbished computers when the price is RIGHT. $600 for this one is not so right to me considering I have to pay state sales tax ( so it's actually $645), and I've only got 90-day warranty. When dealing with customer service I'd rather deal with amazon, I had some experiences with acer before, which was not that great.

$600 I don't think is a BAD price... I'm actually VERY tempted. But what worries me is that these things have barely been on the market a month and they already have enoughed "refurbished" stock that they're getting rid of them on their eBay outlet. Yikes... that's what's keeping me from clicking.

If they put their i7 Ultrabooks on here for like $999, then I'll jump.

Microsoft store has this exact one for $799 with Microsoft Signature AND $200 Microsoft Store credit. No crapware, no malware, ready to go and brand new, and free shipping... http://tinyurl.com/7lef5ft
