Did I make the right choice? HP 13.3" Folio Ultrabook Laptop Core i3-2367M, 13.3", 128GB SSD

So basically I already have a great gaming rig right now. My pc does almost everything I need, especially since i just upgraded to a new Samsung SSD biggrin.gif. What it doesn't do is fit in my backpack lol. After doing some research I decided to ditch the tablet idea and go for a notebook.

What I needed was at least:
core i3-i5,
small light weight size
SSD if possible
Long battery life

I figured that trying to compliment my gaming addiction to any extent wasn't going to be worth it lol, so basically this computer is for school, work, internet browsing, and the occasional movie.

So at Microcenter I found this HP 13.3" Folio Ultra book Laptop Core i3-2367M, 13.3", 128GB SSD for 500 bucks. I seriously couldn't find anything else even close for that price. Everything else that look interesting was at least 699 and it was really hard to find a SSD. The other issue was the smaller light weight sizes where jumping quick into the 900+ range and it just didn't seem worth it. I also didn't want to go cheap either.

Did I make the right choice with this or do I need to return it lol -_-

It seems to fit the bill of what you wanted for a great price.

The 1366x768 resolution on the monitor is the only caveat I could find without really digging into any reviews. At 13 inches it might be fine, but I personally can't stand anything below 1600x900 now.

I dont know the return policy for microcenter, but open it up and see if the resolution bugs you at that screen size.
