Costco has it for $999:

Get the one with MX150. It's easily worth the price difference and more if you game in any capacity.

I bought and returned two of these from Costco. They both had horrible coil whine. (At least Costco and Amazon both have really good return policies.)

For this price it should'be Quad-HD+ & DDR4 RAM. And a fingerprint sensor if doesn't already have one, which I'm pretty sure it does.

Since my lenovo order got cancelled, I'm looking at this.
Would you say the MX150 has any benefit for someone who won't do any gaming?
Edit: no Touchscreen is not acceptable at this price.

Nope. My laptop is for working, and for working I just need the fastest single-threaded performance I can reasonably buy, and a good screen that is clear from four feet away in daylight, and the least weight possible. Intel's built-in graphics are more than sufficient for non-gaming use. I cannot stand touchscreen laptops - getting a good screen and then smearing it with all the gross crap on my fingers seems completely backwards. Zenbooks have excellent screens.

What's battery life like? Does the graphics cards considerably lower battery life?
