I just bought this laptop for my college bound son:
13" screen, i7 CPU, 12gb RAM, 512gb SSD, touch screen, backlit keyboard, $850.
He wanted something a little smaller to carry around so we were looking for a 13" screen, this one weights about 3.5 lbs. Most of the laptops we found that were 13" screens had 128gb SSDs and and i3 or i5 for just about the same price. Plus, Best Buy has a college student discount of $150 right now for qualifying laptops so we got it for $700. I think that's a great deal for the specs.
