Can anyone chime in for this at $496? (I get a discount through work) It's going to be for school for a medical student, no gaming, no video editing. Important thing is battery life, which for $10 extra is 4 cell/41WHr.
Thank you.

You don't need an i7, you need something with a 70-100 WHr battery. If you ever plan on watching video on it you'll want 1080p.

Any manufucturer, HP included, should be embarrassed to have 1366 x 768 displays. It's just ridiculous, why not go all the way to 800x600 then?

Definitely what I'm looking for as well. Battery life has always been more important for me. Gaming can be done at home. Any recommendations, by chance? Every deal I see is full of people complaining about old generation processors, weak graphics card, etc.

My primary use is for pharmacy school. They force us to use iPads for testing and such, but Microsoft OneNote and the rest of their suite of apps is very gimped. I can't even download pdf's directly from the web using the iPad.

Cuz then you can't say HD. I have almost this exact laptop. I use it for word, internet browsing, and mail. 768 is fine for me.

XPS and spectre lines are basically the top of the line windows pc. I have an xps 15 and while it's not super powerful it's very light and lasts about 10hrs. You trade off raw power with build quality and screen quality.

Alrighty then. Let the 1366 x 768 live through 2020's since it's readable enough.

Personally, I would recommend something with a bigger display screen than 1366 x 768, it definitely helps when watching videos or reading eTextbooks. Throughout most of my career as a medical student I used an Acer Aspire S7 13.3-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook. Overall, it was a pretty nice laptop for school since it was fast, light, and very thin. Only complaints I had with the laptop was the wireless card issue which they eventually fixed with an update, the battery life which they claimed was 7+ hours but pretty much only managed to last 5 hours with medium use, and eventually my "?" Key stopped working (occurred after 3 years of everyday use). Initially, battery life was very important to me as well, but it became a nonissue as it turned out my medical school had outlets everywhere, including the lecture halls. Unfortunately, the Acer Aspire S7 laptop will cost you at least 3 times the amount that this HP 15t will run you, but since you stated this was for medical school I thought it only fair to mention the laptop that got me through most of it. Whatever you end up purchasing, I highly recommend that you consider the display, startup time, and weight of the laptop as a priority. Trust me, the last thing you want a medical student to do is carry around a bulky laptop all day on-top of everything else they already need to carry with them. I would also try to get informed whether or not the medical school in question provides outlets in classrooms and lecture halls for students, that way battery life doesn't have to be your number one priority for purchasing a laptop for this medical student unless they enjoy studying outside for hours on end.

Nope 1366 x 768 is perfect screen resolution, people still can use Word and recognize pictures on the internet. Why whould you ask more when you pay only almost $600?

Thank you for your thoughtful insight regarding everyday use of 1366 x 768 display. As the person whom I quoted stated, this is for a medical student so there are other considerations to take to heart aside from using "words" and "recognizing pictures on the internet". As a medical student, you are required to look over thousands of histology, embryology, and other histological images which very often have very subtle changes that need to be detected. Out of personal experience I can only say it is easier to detect these changes with bigger and better displays. Is it more cost effective? Absolutely not. But as you may be acutely aware, medical school is quite expensive and you aren't guaranteed to succeed at all. Personally, I would rather spend the few extra hundred dollars and ensure I have the best means to succeed than cheap out and potentially risk my future and waste a lot of money. Having said all that, is it possible to use this laptop for medical school? Of course it is, but as I mentioned in my previous post there are more things to consider than just price. Once again, this is only MY opinion as someone who has experienced medical school, I am sure other people have different experiences.
