QuestionI've been recently thinking about purchasing this laptop. I'm looking for a laptop strictly for school and to search the web. Would the core M be good enough for those things since the i5 and i7 are extremely pricey? and what are the major differences?

Even with the less expensive Core M processor, it is still an extremely powerful two-in-one device that can tackle late night study sessions along with excellent web browsing functionality.

Otherwise, it sounds like this might be a great fit for you.
