Depends upon what Configuration it is coming with. The Processor is same category as Core i7-4710HQ, coming with a workstation Graphics card and 18 months of warranty. If you want to look for similar configuration for a new Laptop, you have to look for $1000 +.

What do you need a laptop for? This particular configuration is aimed at a very specific user base: those who do 3D Modeling, Heavy CAD work, etc. because it has the workstation class graphics card.

high quality general purpose laptop. preferably name brand, non lenova. 15"6 but 17" 1080p preferred.

These are heavy, bulky, needed large 90+ watt chargers which were like bricks. The soft coating on the touchpad buttons would peel off within an year. Charge on the batteries would not last more than 30 minutes after 1 year. Gave only 2-3 hours on battery.
Thier newer generation folio series is leaps and bounds better.

Then this is not the laptop for you.

I know you said no lenovo, but I just picked up a Yoga 710 here for $632 after student coupon openbox: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/lenov...18.p?loc=0. They have the non-dedicated graphics/i5 version for a bit less too

The new Gen workstation laptops are also costly, over $1000 bucks. This is not a general purpose laptop like lenvo Y500 or Envy. It is a Workstation laptop targeted towards people with specific needs, So compare it with similar category laptop, not a daily usage multimedia laptops.

With the possible exception of the last paragraph, NONE of this is accurate.

Not really. It's a ~7 lb notebook and its bulky by today's standard. It sucks down battery like no tomorrow.

I'm not saying it's a bad notebooks. Elite books are leaps and bounds ahead of most consumer and basic business notebooks. Like the OP said, it's designed for a specific user.

This is not directed at anyone in particular, but when exactly did men become such wusses that 7 pounds is now considered heavy? My daughter does one arm curls with a 15 lb. dumbbell just for muscle tone and she's pretty small.

Like I said...it's bulky by today's standard. My ~2003 Inspiron weighed about 11 lbs. I hauled it all over the place. I traded it (and some cash on my end) for a newer notebook years later, because my friend wanted a tank with a serial port. His new, plastic cased notebook just didn't meet his needs as an amateur radio operator.

If it lives on a desk, size/weight is not a big deal.

If you move it once a week, not a big deal.

If this was 2005, it would be sleek and in the lightweight class.

If you just want to compute on your lap, it starts becoming a big deal. Nobody wants a hot, giant computer causing pain on their leg.

If you're a road warrior, size and weight matter a lot.

If you're a college kid walking a couple of miles a day to classes, size matters, too.
