So, i have been looking around for laptops for school. We are getting wifi and I am really keen to use it. I have decided that an ultrabook will be the way to go.

So i was browsing when i came across the Asus Zenbook UX31E-DH52 (http://www.notebookcheck.net/Asus-Zenbook-UX31E-DH52B-Laptop-Review.65718.0.html) for $800 NZD.

Specs:

Intel® Core™ i5 2557M Processor
Intel® QS67 Express Chipset
Memory 4GB DDR3 1333 MHz SDRAM, OnBoard Memory
13.3" 16:9 HD+ (1600x900) LED Backlight
Integrated Intel® HD Graphics 3000
Storage: 7mm SATA3 - 128GB RPM SSD

It is super light, thin, has a decent screen + Really good ssd. It will be used mostly for schoolwork and some light gaming.

The only thing i am worried about is the sandy bridge i5. It it significantly worse than its ivy counterpart? Other than that, is it a bargain for $800 NZD when it retails new for $2000?
