I'm not sure if this is a "hot" deal, but it is a good deal and it fits my needs: 14", optical drive, 8G/1TB and mechanical L/R buttons on the trackpad--this is very hard to find. I can't stand that rocker panel thing on most new trackpads, I've returned a couple of otherwise competent machines because I hate those things, dealbreaker for me. I'm optimistic that these are the buttons I am looking for, in case anyone else feels the same way. It seems silly to pay for the graphics I don't need, but nothing else in this price range fits my other criteria.
I'm thinking about going up to the i7 for $659, mostly to get the TB HDD. Will the i7 significantly impact power consumption compared to the i5?
