Buy this computer on an American Express card like the Starwood AMEX Consumer Card or the Starwood AMEX Business Card and you’ll get a 2nd year of top notch warranty coverage from AMEX for free! Have a problem with the laptop during the AMEX warranty year? AMEX will pay to fix the problem or refund the entire purchase price of your computer, free of any hassle!
Many people have asked me to post deals on Windows 7 computers before they are all gone. Seems like Microsoft is continuing in its tradition of alternating between good and bad operating systems (Windows ME=bad, XP=good, Vista=bad, Windows 7-=good, Windows 8-bad?).
Well at least for non-touchscreens Windows 7 does seem to be “better” than Windows 8.
Here is a lightweight laptop that’s less than an inch thin with nice features like a built-in DVD burner not usually found in an ultrabook. It also has a 32GB SSD for much quicker system startups and performance.
