Can anyone comment? This is the best laptop for $700? I like something light and portable with a real hard drive, real processor with a fan, usb port and hdmi.

I would pass due to the CPU - it is a dual 7th gen.

This is a great laptop if you are looking for portability. 7th gen i7, 8gb ram, 256gb ssd, should be enough for the average user. If you are looking into any sort of video/photo editting or gaming I would recommend you look elsewhere. If you are using it for office work, youtube, web browsing, this laptop fits all your requirements and is a good price, especially with no tax.

I've been watching laptops for a couple months now, looking for a good deal at a reasonable price. I have a previous generation model from Asus, and it's still going strong though falling a bit behind on battery life and power for newer programs. I love the form factor, and the build quality is excellent. The only thing I don't like about the build is that if you stick an SD card into the reader, it protrudes about 1/2 of the way out from the side, instead of going completely into the laptop. Minor quibble, but I've almost broken a couple of them by forgetting to remove the card and banging into something with it sticking out.

It's not the latest and greatest processor, but since it's Ultrabook, it was never intended to be the fastest out there. It's a shame that it isn't a touchscreen, which I just noticed. It's not essential for me, but it's nice to have, especially when traveling on a cramped plane and trying to use it.

Just a quick comparison for anyone since it might be helpful (going off Asus' webpages, may not be exactly accurate since they have SO many models):
8th gen i5 vs. 7th gen i7
2.6 lb vs. 2.75
13.3" screen vs. 14"
8GB DDR3 vs. 8GB DDR4
12 hr vs. 9 hr advertised battery life
1xUSB 3.0/1xUSB-C vs. 1xUSB 3.1/1xUSB-C/1xUSB 2.0

I'd go with the screen size and USB ports personally, but needs differ. Lack of touchscreen gives me an excuse to put off my purchase again. Big Grin
