Also I would take a used thinkpad over a new Acer every time

The kids have very decent i5 lenovo yogas, and I have an I7 thinkpad carbon. Total for 3 was under 600. The carbon alone was a 1000 machine 2 year prior. The yoga about 5/600 a pop.

If money is no object a dell xps 13. May be smaller than the 15 inch wanted, but because its edge to edge display and higher res, it feels like a 15 and it is the new  benchmark for a laptop keyboard. Better than the new think pads.
