Meh... its kinda regular pricing at this point. No backlit keyboard kills this for most people and the m3 is not as strong as a typical i5 at this price point. You are paying for the thin and light fanless aspects here.

Asus has a new model that does 360 Yoga, back-lit keyboard, USB Type-C (5 Gbps). Not yet available in the US but probably soon. Just a heads up.

Might as well get this one: http://slickdeals.net/f/8666434-dell-inspiron-13-laptop-tablet-i7-6500u-13-3-256gb-ssd-win-10-629-free-shipping-microsoft-store at least it's an i7 which is probably about 2-4 times more powerful than a m3

That one looks pretty nice. It'd be cool if it used USB C charging or had a magnetic connector for the charger.

This looks great, except for the worthless QHD display on a 13" screen. And the slow processors.

If I could find a 12" metal laptop, backlit keyboard, 1080p display, i5/i7, 8gb RAM, and an SSD I'd be a happy camper. There is one currently, it's the one with a 13" screen and a 11" chassis, but it has terrible reviews.

The specs page show there are 2 screen options, FHD and QHD, and M7 is the fastest CPU.

Oh cool. But how does the M7 compare to the I5/I7 CPUs?

I'm literally using this computer right now. Some pages take 2 seconds to load if they have tons of content. I love this laptop for it never getting warm. I've never had a problem streaming 1080p or watching 1080p video. No guilt about having it on top of a bed blocking vents. Seriously, it never gets hot.

How's the trackpad on it?
