Why so much hate for win 8, I tried it and though its a bit quirky at first, almost everything else is the same. Just think of the metro screen as a gigantic in your face start menu that is highly customizable.

I wouldn't get anything below an i3, therefore the slickdeal of this is questionable. I've seen plenty of i3's below or at this price point.
I agree. I bet this has a 0.3mp webcam, and who knows what graphics chip it has. At minimum for $325 (adding tax), you'd want HD4000 graphics with an i3, and for $50 more, should be able to land an i5. If you use Skype, you don't want 0.3mp webcam.
This processor is the previous Sandy Bridge (Ivy Bridge is the current release), and is pretty throttled back.Turbo Boost for the CPU part, HyperThreading, AES, Virtualization (VT-x and VT-d), Trusted Execution or Intel Quick Sync are deactivated compared to the i3.
An Intel Core i3-2310M with 2.1 GHz has a benchmark score of 2330 without the throttling. This B980 benchmark is at 1936, almost 400 points back.
Good Post! Total out the door here in Michigan is $370.99 minus $50 rebate (Visa card). Remember with the 14 day return if you find a better deal in the next few days, no harm no foul, right? If you are looking for this "level" of laptop, Slick! TU!
