    I wouldn't. small low res screen. 1.4ghz dual core and only 1 usb3 and two usb2 port for 900 bucks?

    128gb ssd aside thats about $500 overpriced i think

    8 hour battery life is nice but i would rather get a better laptop for less and carry an extra battery

    I don't mind the low res screen as its not gonna be an everyday work horse. It is an I3 dual core though, I figured those were good enough?

    I found one refurbished by Toshiba for $650. I just wonder how safe it is buying refurbished? They only include a 90 day warranty which is weird, but I figure if it is going to break that would be the time right? ... I wouldn't pay $900

    plus USB, If I really need that many things connected to my laptop, I have a nice cheap $6 4 port USB hub. I am just really happy with the inclusion of the 1 usb 3.0

    At $650 for an internet browser that will be fine. Still a bit more than I would spend but im a cheap ass.

    I also thought you refused some 1080P laptops I found because they were not 17"

    LOL! I did, but priorities changed with my laptop needs so now I need a really portable laptop with long battery life that will be fast with MS Office and internet and email.

    It should be fine, and being an ultrabook should boot quickly.

    I would test one out before you buy though, I am interested to see how a 1.4GHz sandyB performs... I got jaded though with running SB chips at 5GHz I guess

    Toshiba portege Z835 has excellent battery life, light weighted and accurate touch pad. It is one of the sleekest ultrabook yet with backlit keyboard. While the slim profile and the amazingly light weight are attractive also has disadvantages like slow processor and questionable display quality.
    Fluorescent Grow Light.
