Post seems fine, but it's nice that you asked for any thoughts on it.

As for the deal, it seems to be refurbished at this price nearly everywhere (Amazon, Rakuten, Groupon, etc.) at the moment. In fact, currently Rakuten is a better deal as they have 15% sitewide which results in a $494 price point after tax - $464.99 pretax, for those counting..

As for the item, some of the reviews and warranty concerns are a bit off-putting for an otherwise solid list of specs. Would love to hear what any owners have to say...

Intel likes to play games to sell stuff to the uninformed

It's a mobile i7 processor, so it's probably sacrificing speed in return for a more energy efficient design. I was a bit confused with that at first too
For reference, here's how this mobile i7-7Y75 compares with an i7-7700K

Use SAVE15 to take price to $464.99...free shipping and no tax for me makes that a slick deal.

OP, I suggest put CPU full model in title (it is short enough). To quickly clarify which i7 (or which exact CPU it is). (Same for other CPUs, try to include full CPU model (if known & not too long), so people who know about it can quickly evaluate; people who don't would need to lookup & research anyway).

I can see you tried to pack the major specifications in the title, a great practice. Along with price, source/vendor.
Check other popular computer posts, for their post title formats (especially by posters with high SlickDeals reputation points).

--

The Y series Intel CPUs are the lowest power or heat models (lowest max Thermal Design Power (TDP) & consequently lowest performance within the model series). They are designed to normally operate without fans or additional cooling, by limiting max heat output & power, which is done by limiting factors which also affect overall performance & power. They can get better battery life from same battery (though it is common for many laptop models with these CPUs to have lower capacity batteries) (at least they don't normally have to power fans or additional cooling systems).
That is why the other commenter said it is the m7 (actually equivalent, m series model designation is for older Intel CPU generations & was later replaced with Y series model designation in later generation Intel CPUs (by Intel, in a symbol change for the same essential meaning; older CPU generation designation format is m#-... (instead of i#-...), & later CPU generation designation format is i#-...Y... (seems so they could have the models start with the "i" instead )).
Intel CPU max power or heat (max TDP) level designations (at least for i-series CPUs) -
H is higher power TDP level (also applies to CPU models with K or X, & many models without alphabetic letter.) (normally requires fan or additional cooling),
U is medium power TDP level (officially Ultra low voltage, yet there is lower than Ultra) (normally requires fan or additional cooling),
Y (previously m#-... series) is lowest power TDP level (so beyond Ultra).
There may be more designations & levels/ranges, Intel changes this. There are also higher max power/TDP CPUs. (I wish they would apply 1 formatting & designation standard, to simplify meaning & interpretation for everyone. Instead it is complex, confusing, & has a greater learning curve.)
(Intel has been inconsistent about meaning or designation of same symbols or formatting, so can be confusing. Example, most max power/TDP designations are symbolized by an appending alphabetic letter to end of CPU model, yet with the Y series they interject it in the model number (consistent would be to also append the letter like Y).
The Intel TDP levels are a classification of max heat & power levels, to provide a sense of heat & power levels/ranges, & consequently power consumption/supply levels & cooling needs. This can be applied to any CPUs or model series. Learning what this means can be helpful when evaluating & comparing CPUs. (If only Intel would standardize more universal & keep consistent, then would be simpler to learn & easier to interpret.)

This deal also alive as of current at acerrecertified.com...

https://acerrecertified.com/acer-...4-51-m024/

Free shipping, no tax in some states (CA included), but I guess that means still a little more than Ratuken.

This machine seems sortof a good Windows alternative to a higher end Chromebook (for whatever that is worth). I've had trouble finding a reasonably priced fanless laptop with at least 14" FHD screen, substantial SSD, and at least 8 GB ram. https://www.ultrabookreview.com/6...ltrabooks/
My disappointment was in lack of proper stylus support. Microsoft Surface and Huawei Matebook offerings more expensive. Seems like a good daily driver (?)

I posted this as I thought it was a good basic laptop with an SSD. I actually bought 2 of them, one for my mother and one for my father-in-law. Both are NOT tech savvy and are in their 60s, so no desire to learn either.

I am disappointed by the i7. I have read all the comments and agree that it is the lower chip. I will need to look into it further, although the users will only be surfing the web and checking email, which doesn't require much processing power.

Thanks for all the tips and suggestions! I will try to edit the title when I get on my laptop. I noticed it won't let me do it on the app.
