Opinions wanted... I can't think of anything at all that this is missing for the average student/user. Reviews are very good, and they were based on an i5 cpu. Not for a gamer, of course. Is there any reason I shouldn't buy this for my college daughter who will be biking to class? Any better values in the portable 13" OR 14" size range?

If you search for Dell Inspiron 13, you'll find two recent deals (about 2 weeks ago). One is for an i7/12GB/512GB at $700, the other for i3/8GB/256GB for $500. Those are pretty good deals. i7/8GB/256GB is market price at $800, even though it's the mid-2016 update. She probably won't make use of that USB-C port, which is the only difference. I honestly doubt she'll make use of that i7 either. i3 performance is way more than enough for school and web browsing, and any heavy duty computational software would be not benefit from the short sustained bursts of dualcore i7 of this gen. I'd say save your moolah and stake out a better deal.

Honestly, if your daughter is not in STEM or tech-savvy, you could consider a Macbook for $900-$1k. I would have loved a tablet for typing notes and occasionally writing equations or structures, but I never would have used it any other class. If I were only looking for an easy-to-use, low-maintenance device, then the lowest tier Macbook on sale would suffice. 128GB is paltry, but nothing an external HDD wouldn't resolve. 4GB is probably fine though she'd encounter occasional stutters from programs being shuffled about.

What about the i7 / 8gb ram / 256 ssd at the microsoft store that includes a built-in capacitive stylus? That is 700 bucks. Why is this a popular deal when there is an even better one at the lower price for 2 consistent months?
