So I was just browsing the store and had to make an account for this, in what universe does a 13" display with an i7-5500u, 8gb ddr3, 256gb ssd laptop with a 4-cell battery and usb 3.0 cost $1300?
To pay even almost that amount I would expect at least a 6-cell, 500gb ssd, usb 3.0/3.1, 15", quad core cpu, and either ddr4 or a gtx 950/960 depending on what it's being used for.
As it is now literally has no use, bad computing power and really bad graphics so anything that requires those are already out, the 256gb is way too small for any sort of media, what reason is there to own this laptop let alone spend $1300 on it? I'd spend $500... maybe $750 if I was desperate and had no other choices.
As comparison the last laptop I bought was a brand new msi gt70 back in 2014 for $1500 it came with a 17" 1080p, i7-4710mq (significantly better still than the 5500), 16GB ddr3, 1TB HDD AND a 256gb ssd, 9-cell battery, gtx 970m, and sadly it also only had usb 3.0. Better in every single aspect except battery life which you can disable the 970 and use the Intel graphics which was also better than the 5500 graphics and have comparable battery life as well. How can a company charge so much for a mediocre product and still be able to smile as if they aren't just stealing money from people?
