    Wow!!!!

    Like most people on this forum, $199 is a lot of money to me. But when compared to something like full price of an iPhone, it seems to turn a Windows computer into a disposable item. If it breaks after the warranty you just recycle it and buy another.

    Looks good. The $25 microsoft store gift card, 60 minutes of skype, and 1 year of office are nice additions. The battery life seems good too.

    Might have to pick one up for my 6 year old. It can be a learning tool for him and oh he loves Minecraft! Should also be a free upgrade to Windows 10…..

    Same. Perfect age. My daughter (also 6) would benefit from an early start on a PC. And for this price, I'm likely choosing this over a Nintendo Wii. Just don't tell her that! :p
