    This is the old model with dual core 7th generation CPU.

    The new model with 8th gen quad can be had for around $1800, but at this kind of price point, you won't have the nice goodies like WQHD display and the gigantic 512GB SSD plus 4G LTE modem.

    If you were planning to use 10% PIZZAZZ coupon code, that has a maximum discount of $100. So that laptop will cost you $1998.95.

      Thanks for highlighting. I am not going to perform multiple tasks so likely this should be fine. Seems this appears to be a pretty good deal with 3 years warranty.
      Cheers

    Spend a bit more and get gen 8 cpu. Huge different between 7th and 8th.

      Is it the price difference worth the improvement in performance during day to day unsophisticated usage?
