This deal ended Sunday, but it will be back. Well worth the wait, imo--
For $706.30, I got this setup:
Processor: Intel Core i5-3210M Processor (3M Cache, up to 3.10 GHz)
Display type: 14.0" HD+ (1600 x 900) LED Backlit AntiGlare Display, Mobile Broadband Ready
System graphics: NVIDIA NVS 5400M Graphics with Optimus Technology, 1GB DDR3 Memory
Total memory: 4 GB PC3-12800 DDR3 (1 DIMM)
Keyboard: Keyboard Backlit - US English
Camera 720p HD Camera with Microphone
Hard drive 320GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm
Ultrabay DVD Recordable
Bluetooth Bluetooth 4.0 with Antenna
Integrated WiFi wireless LAN adapters Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200 (2x2 BGN)
I got the 6-cell battery, which apparently gets 8-9 hours of battery life. The review tests showed the9-cell getting FIFTEEN hours!

So crazy question but why wouldnt this be lumped in with Ultrabooks?
Before people get technical I know the Ultrabooks are low voltage, integrated graphics, high battery, etc. However looking at the specs, 3.5 pounds (some true Ultrabooks weigh this much), 6.5 hours of battery life, 1 inch thin, etc make me wonder if it belongs.
Seems like a good deal for a like ultrabook with dedicated graphics, etc etc. (I am asking because I am looking for an Ultrabook with dedicated graphics)
You won't get 6.5 hours of battery life. ~4 hours in stamina mode and ~2.5 hours with the dedicated graphics card on.
My GF bought one of these during the winter sale the MS store had last year for about $750 I think. Haven't had any major problems with it and it did come clean with almost no Sony software (I think there still one or two things that included drivers)
