This is the Kaby Lake (7th gen) m3. The difference between this and the m5 6th gen is unnoticeable (100 mhz).

I wouldn't say the Costco machine is objectively better. It really depends on your use. For what most people use a computer for (browsing with multiple tabs, youtube/netflix, MS office, skype, viewing/copying photos and videos), the two will be completely indistinguishable in terms of speed/responsiveness. If you are doing something that benefits from more CPU power (compressing files, encoding/decoding video, image/video editing) then the Acer will win out.

It's tempting to just compare computer deals based on their listed hardware. This is usually OK for desktops, but it is essential for laptops to consider other factors, such as portability (size/weight), connectivity (USB/video/network ports), battery life, screen (size, resolution, IPS vs TN, clarity), build quality, and other perks (2-in-1, backlit keyboard, key travel distance, etc).

Here is a comparison of their specs (listed Asus on left, Costco Acer on right):
3.0 lbs vs 3.5 (Costco is 17% heavier)
12.6x8.7x0.6in x 12.9x9.0x0.8 (Costco is 41% more volume)
USB: 2x3.0 + 1xC vs 2x2.0 + 1x3.0
micro-hdmi vs hdmi (since Costco one is thicker, it can support a full sized HDMI port, whereas you will need to carry a converter for the Asus)
no backlit vs backlit
10 hrs vs 4-8 hrs of battery life

I would say that unless you need a keyboard backlight and full sized HDMI, the Asus is better for the majority of people.

As an FYI, a similar deal (UX360CA but with a 6th gen m3 that is ~15% slower than the 7th gen) has been on the MS store multiple times over the past 9 months, for as low as $480. Check prior threads for more details.

I travel internationally a few times a year. Light, smallish, fast-enough is what I need. This is the first laptop that seems to fit my needs in years.

Generally, only a chromebook comes close. I'm completely addicted to 1080p, 10+ hrs of battery, and under 3 lb chromebooks running Linux.
All the chromebooks have flaws - their keyboards suck, RAM is usually 4G or less, and most are a hassle to get Linux loaded. My last chromebook was $430 + $50 to swap out the 16G SSD for a 128G SSD and unlock the boot loader to put any OS (except chromeOS) on the machine. It has a passmark of 3000, thanks to a Core i3. As chromebooks go, a great machine.

This deal checks all my boxes.
* Fast enough - 3600+ passmarks
* 1080p screen
* 13 inch screen
* Under 3 lbs
* Real keyboard - Asus isn't Dell, but better than all the others. If I can't have an IBM 101M.
* 8G of RAM
* Plenty of storage for Linux. Generally, I use about 60G on my laptops - that includes videos to waste time on travel.
* Kaby Lake is a slight issue. Some of those CPUs have issues. Don't know if CoreM would have those issues.

I'm not really thrilled about the 2-in-1 aspect. Seems like something else to fail, but maybe they have this design nailed?

I've been burned by Acer devices - keyboards that died, terrible power cables, support that ended after 1 yr, etc. YMMV.

There are more expensive and faster machines. Usually at the cost of battery life. If I need something faster, there is a desktop available from anywhere in the world waiting at home over x2go (ssh-based remote desktop).

Oh ... and clearly I'd wipe Windows. Wink Got no use for that OS.

Very, very, tempting. Alas, my 2 yr old chromebook is still going strong running Ubuntu-Mate. My non-travel laptop is 7 yrs old with a 1st-gen Core i5.
Very tempting.

If it was the m5 instead, everything else is perfect.

I got the previous gen one from the MS store same price. Great computer so I'm sure this one is even better.

Isn't the Lenovo flex 14 or 15 from Staples or Office Depot better deal. It uses i5.

Good deal and good looking ultrabook. I just bought a MacBook m3 for $650 (open boxed) at BB, and I'm debating if I should get this instead.

You'll automatically earn a total of 10 points per $1 spent (up to $250 in purchases). That's 9 extra points in addition to the 1 point you always earn on purchases other than travel and dining

Depends upon your needs. Flex 5 is a more of a mainstream 2-in-1 with standard U series processor and moderate battery life but can be used for versatile set of works. This one on the other hand is designed for battery life and daily tasks which are not so complex. Not sure of this version with Kaby Lake, but the old one with Core M 6Y30 can go up to 10 hours. So if you need a 2-in-1 for day to day works and want huge battery life, this one is better for you.
