Laptop shopping

I've been shopping for a laptop, and came across one with an SSD as it's primary drive. I haven't shopped computers in quite a while, so quite a learning curve. I didn't realize SSD made the difference that it does until reading all of the various reviews. It also has a great processor, 1080P IPS display, solid and light construction, and a great price to specs ratio IMO ($799 at the Microsoft Store). Cons are the keyboard (according to reviews), light on RAM and not really upgradeable, integrated graphics and weak battery life.

My usage : for typical around the house type work. Light spreadsheet word processing, e-mail, internet, watching movies, etc. It won't really be a gaming laptop at all, so integrated graphics seem ok. The SSD drive will make it quick enough that the RAM should suffice I'd think. And it will mostly be confined to the house, so lack of battery horsepower shouldn't be much of a big deal. What say you computer nerds?
