    After cashback, it's $50 cheaper than the one sold in August and this one says it has bluetooth. The one I bought in August is good but the LCD lets it down. I don't like glossy screens that you can see your reflection in and the colours totally change just from a slightly different viewing angle. It's slightly annoying having to push two keys to change volume, all notebooks should have independent volume buttons.

What do you think?
