I'm in the market looking to buy a secondary laptop for solely school related stuff. I was at first interested by chromebooks, but due to shitty WiFi in my wings at uni and the lack of choice for canadians, I have moved away from that. Now I'm looking for something that would give me about 5+ hrs of battery life, about 120gbs of SSD and an i5 (3rd gen) processor. I don't much care about everything else. Since this is a secondary laptop I don't plan on spending much and Im too impatient to wait for haswell to get into the i5 zone. Right now I'm taking a look at http://www.amazon.ca/gp/offer-listing/B00863L2PK/ref=dp_olp_refurbished?ie=UTF8&condition=refurbished&qid=1374793787&sr=8-1
Would love some recommendations.

P.S. how well does a hybrid storage system work for laptops?

Hybrid storage works great. My 32GB SSD/500GB SATA combo can boot up in like 10 seconds from powered off and still store a ton of stuff...
