I agree, at this price point i'd be looking for an 8th gen processor, BUT the 17" screen makes it a pretty good deal if you're looking to buy something for parents or grandparents. Plus SSD for quick boot time and an ips screen for nice video.

This will do quite nicely to surf the web, check email, watch Netflix and write docs... Thumbs up from me, but just doesn't fit my needs right now.

Intel says the i5-7200U was released in Q3, 2016.
My, my, time sure flies when 1.5 years = 5 years.

Thanks. My current 17.3 laptop is old and slow, even with an SSD in it. My needs are basic so this should do just fine.

I bought the SquareTrade warranty for $51.99 since I'm not sure how good this model is. 5% cashback on Paypal when using my Chase card is a nice bonus.

There was some kind of problem with my order and it didn't go through. Good thing because I missed the free Google Home Mini offer the first time.

So 5 years old aesthetically? Specs seem recent enough, but I would understand if you were meaning the bulk and design of the frame.

you should've skipped the 5% back & used a Citi Double Cash. 2% back + 2 yrs. added to manufacturer's warranty for free. Total warranty: 3 yrs.

this might be wrong. but I believe that 2-yr SquareTrade warranty is actually just an extra year, since the 1st year duplicates the manufacturer's warranty.

that said, I believe you'll still end up with a 3-yr warranty, since Chase adds a yr. to underlying warranties that don't exceed 3 yrs. (if you had done CDC + SquareTrade, your total coverage would've equaled 4-5 yrs., depending on when the ST warranty kicks in).

This thing won't fit in my backpack. It's a little wider and deeper than my current 17.3" laptop. Just enough so the corners hit the zippers. I incorrectly assumed a 17."3 laptop would fit in a backpack made for that size. If most laptops are like this now I may have to find a 15.6" one. Not sure if I'm gonna keep this one.
