I like the looks of this, guys. Core i5 and i7 processors; 14.5 hours of battery life. Original colors. SD card slot?! I might have to pick one of these up.

edit --

Ships with Windows 10 S which only allows apps from the Windows Store. BUT -- you can to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. Hopefully you can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro at checkout so that it'll arrive at your home ready to go.

8GB RAM should be standard these days.
Agreed. Perhaps 4GB is enough for Windows 10 S. I haven't used it myself so I can't say. Maybe that's the mentality behind the abysmal 4GB base.

$1000 for a notebook that is restricted to apps from the Windows Store? I don't get it. (edit: full Windows 10 is available as a free option until 12/31/17)
