Images show docking station, but not mentioned in the description.

Rakuten has essentially the same device, with docking station / optical drive - and 1 year warranty - for $229. http://www.rakuten.com/prod/lenovo-x61-notebook-pc-core-2-duo-1-...

This is a seven year old computer. Seven years old. In the face of Moore's law the exponential growth of capability means this is not worth the value asking or appropriate for anyone with serious needs.

To answer your philosophy question:
Why has this exponential growth not filtered down to mainstream computing, drop in demand for new desktop, notebook computers over the past several years?   What advances in mainstream software have found their way to consumers over the past 7 years to take advantage of such exponential growth? Best Buy is blaming "an overall lack of innovation" for its financial woes, now challenging Silicon Valley to do precisely this http://buzz.money.cnn.com/2014/05/23/best-buy-tech-blame  

In regard to the subject device:
1. For most users, what capabilities does this device lack? I would make the case that short of advanced engineering design software, it is more than capable for a very large majority of the population.
2. Windows 8 is a DISASTER for desktop, notebook use. Given the choice, I would go for Windows 7 EVERY TIME.

This is an EXCELLENT value proposition for those who care more about meeting their functional needs than spending 5x the price for the latest and greatest model, gaining little in the way of REAL capability.
