. That's $10 under last week's mention and the lowest total price we've seen. (It's also $107 under the lowest total price we could find for a refurb elsewhere.) This 0.7" thin laptop features an Intel Core i5-2467M 1.6GHz dual-core Sandy Bridge processor, 13.3" 1366x768 LED-backlit widescreen LCD, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, webcam, one USB 3.0 port, 50-whrs polymer battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (no optical drive is included).
A 90-day warranty applies, although it's unclear who supports it. Also, newegg lists the resolution as 1366x768 while other sources, including PC Magazine, list it as 1600x900. ASUS doesn't mention which resolution this model uses.
