This is the one that Best Buy has been advertising as "exclusive." I was going to buy it last week with a coupon match when Staples had the $100 coupon off any Windows 8 PC, but I held off because of the 2nd Gen i3. Really to make this thing worth it, you would want to put an SSD in it. I never saw one in person so I don't know how upgradeable it is.
Urgh, I like most of the specs except the video. What the heck is Intel UMA HD Graphics? Is that Intel 3000? Also, anyone know if it has intel wifi adapter? If so, you can get WIDI to work. It sounds like the drive is replaceable.
oh, and its s 38 watt battery. I know that minimum draw is roughly 7 watts for a i5 with bigger screen. so i'm conservatively guessing 4-5 hrs. which is good. fyi. my average draw means watching youtube videos constantly.
also, this seems similar to the staples one that popped up for 450 a couple days ago lemma try and find that link. minus the 3rd to 2nd gen i3 thingy.
in the review in the best buy page, its 6 hrs, and full bore at 3 hrs. so figure 4 hrs which was my estimate.
its the best buy version, so just go there..
Fyi, i already bought one. Its going to be my portable laptop. I have a heavy duty desktop already for modeling and gaming so no need to find a super laptop for me.
Good luck and happy computing.
