Not required but prefer backlit keyboard, quad core, HDMI output, good battery life, +SSD or hybrid
Spent the last week hunting around after visiting Best Buy. So far I cannot do better than this Lenovo U530 for $799+tax.
Would have taken this deal if we had been ready Asus Notebook, 15.6" 1920x1080 IPS Touchscreen, I5, 750gb HDD, 6gb Ram - $649+Tax-($50 GC later) Maybe it will come back.
TIA for your ideas!
