Looking for a good deal on an i5 based 14" ultra book

Looking to buy an ultrabook in 14" size for my wife . Needs portability, 14" to match her previous thinkpad work laptop size, an ssd of 256 rather than 129 and i5 w 8GB. Is the Asus ZenBook UX430 going to be my best option with the bilingual keyboard? We dont really want to go over the 1K mark if possible/ Any deals or other units to consider?

I've been looking for something similar and the only two that I've found are the Acer Swift 3 and the Acer R14. I was able to check out both at Best Buy and they seemed ok. Also just noticed that Canada Computers sells recertified versions with a full 1 year warranty from Acer for $569 and $614 respectively...both seem to get decent reviews.

Looks like Best Buy has a 1 day Flash sale on the R14 for $749.99 today only:

So about $135 more for a brand new one....
I just seen the deal and plan to take my wife to go get the R14 unit for $749 while it is on this one day sale. At $750 it is a decent deal but 6th gen and keyboard is not bilingual. If I had CC local to me I would take the additional savings personally if it has a 1 yr warranty, the Swift from reviews I found has a dim screen the R14 is a lot better

There is also a Dell Inspiron 13 5378 option for $499 and one could drop in ones own SSD or pay more for the model above, however the Dell is a 13.3" I have not had enough time to read any reviews I skimmed the youtube review, he seems to give it good props and it is kaby Lake
Dell Inspiron 13 5378 Signature Edition 2 in 1 PC (Intel Core i5) w 1TB, 8GB @ $499 discounted $50, pretty good deal but it is out of stock online,

We are gonna run out and buy the R14 for now and decide following
