Not $999, which I believe was the lowest for this computer, but for $10 more still a great deal.

Only 2 cores for 7th gen and no graphics chip. I'd prefer a quad core i7 (HQ) for future proof.

By the way, i7 two-core has a different chipset from i7 quad core, so you can't upgrade the CPU later.

I had this computer. I bought it brand new for about the same price as it's going now (ebay auction). I ended up selling it but I loved it to bits. It was oh-so-fast and super light weight. Battery was average (5-6 hours light work, media, browsing). I wouldn't buy it again because I need something more dynamic but if you need something light and powerful this is your machine. It's one gorgeous piece of hardware, too; blue with gold accents and with yellow backlit keys.

I don't understand how are these two "comparable", there are plenty of difference...

Was about to say overpriced, but then saw the weight of only 2lbs and .46 in thickness. If this was the 8th gen i would be tempted .

Hard to quantify the importance of weight, but you really give up a bit to get it this light.
I would rather have spent $200 more and gotten the XPS 13 from Costco with a higher res display and an 8th gen processor, and MUCH better battery.

Asus tech (not their mobos) seems to always compromise something when I get them

- transformer prime tablet had bad wifi (Asus sent a wifi "bar" to fix this)
- zenbook ux31a had the infamous DC-jack issue, also a constantly loosening keyboard ribbon cable
- Q501LA laptop for my in-law with LCD flicker when I move the display on its hinge
- All of the QHD+ zenbooks (mine was a UX303UB) had that mustard green-colored yellow color to the pentile display

I owned all four of these, so I attest to these on personal experience. They always end up being the cheaper options so I deal with them, but dont see them on my other machines:

- XPS 13, 7th gen (iris) and 8th gen, no problems at all so far
- MBP 2011 - no problems...going strong almost 8 years with just an SSD upgrade
- two thinkpad X220 tablets - absolutely no issues. and they have both taken some serious falls. down the stairs, on a locker room floor, thrown in back of trunk, etc. <---favorite laptop purchases of all time
- And for kicks, my very first laptop, a Compaq LTE Elite 4/75 from 1994. Everything works on it (except battery)

not even close to the same type of computer you'd be looking for.

Still rocking the ux31a myself. I have opened it up and dealt with the keyboard ribbon. They thought it was okay to attach it with masking tape lololol

The $999 UX430UN sounds like a better deal at Costco, no?

Quad core i7 and nVidia MX150:
