With the ASUS Zenbook UX31A deal yesterday for $618, this seems very over priced considering it lacks SSD, 1080p, IPS, and it's 1.6lbs heavier. Just my opinion!
Your deal was for a used laptop right recertified and this is BRAND SPANKING NEW. SSD is expensive and difficult to ugprade and hard to find. Ram is soldered in and you are stuck at 4gb for ever. I believe it is a U series cpu which is typically undervolted and underclocked. I think the i5 in the apple is faster.
I spent $950 on the wife's computer and got $27 in reward zone bucks along with 18 month financing with no interest. Right away I dropped in a 256gb samsung 830 which is highly sought after for $170 and 16gbs of ram for $80. Please find do me a favor and ugprade the SSD to 256gb, add 16gb of ram for photoshop and rendering along with virtual machine. Yes resolution blows on the LCD panel but when using it at home it is plugged into a IPS 24" lcd @ 1080p. Different strokes for different folks...enjoy the RECERTIFIED laptop that is not user friendly to upgrades.
thats so nice of you to buy it for your little sis - quite thoughtful!
