Just scored what I think is a pretty amazing laptop at a fantastic price. Great screen, fantastic keyboard and trackpad, great processor. It is last years model (2020) but still a fantastic machine for this price.
Note there is a 15” version of this machine in grey with a better processor and a bigger ssd but less memory (5500u/512GB ssd/8GB ram - soldered) for $20 more! -

Note2: some people are reporting issues getting the student discount to stack with the ecoupon and Rakuten… if this is the case, contact customer support and ask for a quote. Don’t pay for it through customer service chat, make sure you get the quote and then complete the purchase through the web site to make sure you get the rakuten rebate. Enjoy!
Computer is listed at $909 by using promo code B2SCHOOLDB7 you knock it down to $699. I used a student discount onto of this discount to knock it down further $609. I had to create an ID.me account, it requires an "active" student ID card to get or teacher certificate. Anyone in that works in a school or is a student should be able to get this additional discount.
Update: if you don’t have a student discount, you can use coupon code: IDEASALE to knock it down to $678 thanks spinner
I applied for Rakuten which is increased to 7% currently for some additional savings of $42.63 bringing the grand total after tax with Rakuten down to 699-100*1.13 = $689.13 - 42.63 = $646.50
This laptop gets great reviews:
My only grip(s) are that is has soldered on ram (darn) but it's 16GB which is plenty for my usage. Other issue is it is only 256GB storage, but it does have an additional M.2 slot (update - specs don’t show 2nd M.2 but it is there and can be used as a second ssd) as well as the primary M.2 is replaceable so no issue upgrading down the road .
It has USB-C power pass through (yay) but HDMI does support 4K 60Hz though.
Update - 4K 60Hz support According to reviewer - (ymmv) officially HDMI 1.4b which is 30hz.
