    I liked the first one you were looking at, the one you ended up with is just awesome. You rich guys.:sick:

    Yea Windows_Security, me too, Spawn must have been considering the sale price Wednesday at Microsoft store and even at that it was expensive. I had a chance to use a Surface about 3 yrs ago and it was really, really nice so they should get the money for it but it's out of my league price wise.

    Since you're not gaming and just doing home work and surfing the web, i would say priorize the SSD. I hardly think you'll go short in RAM for minimum home usage. Although you should upgrade the RAM, i would target first the benefits of the SSD and then switch to the memory.

    If you didn't take everything I said out of context, then you would not have a problem. There was nothing to suggest that the Surface Book was for the wealthy.

    Buying a Surface Book is an expensive purchase. Period. Umbra didn't say if he was willing to splash cash or not, hence my recommendation on a top of the line Windows 10 device. It's also an improvement over the original Surface Book, if he were to consider this route. You can look up the reviews online.

    As Umbra has purchased a new device, I have nothing further to add to this discussion.

    Congrats on gettting yourself an ultrabook.

    Personally I wouldn't consider Levono Yoga as ultrabook category due to 1.7kg weight. Typically anything above 1.4kg I wouldn't consider it.
    Perhap this reply might come late, perhaps you can take a glance at Asus Zenbook flip UX360.
    Pre-equipped with SSD and Core M, not for gaming but able to take decent amount of general multitasking job.
    What I like is the heat dissipation ability, which is the key core point for me before I consider to buy.

    The thing is in the city i am i don't have much choice, and this Lenovo was perfect to my needs. The 360° FLIP screen is nice.
    I never buy online for expensive stuff, i like to feel it in my hands first.

    The Fingerprint reader option is really nice combined with Win10' Hello feature.
    I set my SUA and admin account (with UAC set to max) to prompt for my PIN, now i just have to put my finger, awesome.

    ...you should choose an internal SSD drive with more capacity (e.g. 225/250GB):

    just saw a good 256gb SSD m2 (2000 read/1000 write), i will go with this one and 8gb RAM.

    my system take maximum 30-40gb only so i have plenty of space to fill this SSD.
