I have to thank spindoc77 for starting this thread. I ended up getting a 64gb model from Amazon at the $229 price last month. Amazingly, the total after tax/customs/shipping to Canada was still only about $250 USD. For that price, I'm willing to play the digitizer failure lottery. Unbeatable compared to the usual $430 CAD price (tax *not* included) which had kept me from buying. I barely use my laptop now after a few weeks with it. Mine was an 05/2015 manufacture date, for the record.
