I called my local staples to reserve 1 of this laptop. After saying the item# to the manager, she asked me if I will use the $100 off coupon and I said yes since I got it directly in emails from staples.

Then she said that the coupon is invalid and they won't allow using it.

Any ideas?
Print the coupon go into the store, have the clerk ring it up and give her the coupon. If she asks a manager or you get denied, pull up the email from staples and ask why they won't honor the coupon. If they won't honor it (I got the email as well and there is no reason they shouldn't), either call corporate and complain about the manager and/or order online and get it shipped free. Might also consider finding out if it isn't the store manager, who that is and talk to them about it and let them know you won't be shopping there because of how you were treated.

can i play games on it? like simple game...xcom, Ava, metro 2033?? because I might give my wife my sony t13
It has the 4000 graphics, which is supposedly a lot better than the 3000 so you could play some stuff, won't be high settings, but if that is all that is running you might be able to get a playable experience from it. I think I'm going to pick one up primarily for school, but I'll do some light gaming on it if I can stand it.

Yeah those will if they state 7mm. I have an m4 that's 9mm. I bought a 7mm from newegg, I will say the majority out there are 9mm.
Yeah just find a 7mm SSD most manufacturers have a version of their SSDs that's 7mm, and some 9mm ones, you can even open up and remove the spacer to get it to 7mm (btw, the 830 does have a 7mm version, I have a 256GB one for my sager).

In any case, how's the touchpad? I went in-store and I'm not a fan of the integrated mouse buttons... maybe because I think that's where you should place your thumb to click on links

Pretty nice ultrabook. Got two right after Black Friday and shoved in Samsung 840 256GBs.
One thing to note : This thing will NOT boot from an MBR disk even with SecureBoot disabled. Fortunately, it's easy enough to convert an MBR image to GPT.

That's because it doesn't have a SSD cash. I replaced hard disk with a samsung 840 pro. I installed windows 8 pro in it. Man, the computer is faster than my core i5 laptop with regular hard drive now. No lag at all. I love this laptop now! I use it for my work now.
Did you remove all the screws on the bottom of the laptop to access the HDD bay? I'm looking to replace it with a spare Crucial M4, but it's only 64GB, so need to get a 128/256 GB SSD.

It's probably UEFI boot only hence the need for GPT SSD or HDD. UEFI and GPT is a second or two faster than MBR and BIOS on boot time on my 840 SSD and Thinkpad x220. I installed it first as legacy and later did a reinstall using UEFI and GPT. For slickdeal users, ignore the jargon unless you are planning to upgrade your laptop to SSD.

quick question from a quasi-helpless mac user who bought this for my wife and is trying to optimally configure the thing - has anyone replaced the horrible track pad driver? can anyone point me in the right direction?

has anyone customized this in general, i.e. uninstalled the asus bloatware? comments on how well it affects performance? and for the love of god, can you point me in the right direction?

thanks SDNers! Cool

Hi zahque,

If you're talking about installing a samsung series 5 touchpad driver I can help you with this.

Samsung actually removed the driver from their website and replaced it with an updating tool.

You can download the updating tool with this link,

http://www.samsung.com/us/support...U3C-A02UB#

then download the ELAN touchpad driver or I did you a favor and uploaded the actual driver to my mega account. I uploaded a .rar file, and you will need a computer with winrar to extract it.

Here is a link to the download for an Elan touchpad driver 11.7.2.1 which will work with the Asus vivobook 11.6"

https://mega.co.nz/#!KANTGYQQ!McL...WXBijarmGs

To install it:
Click on Desktop from the Metro Menu
Move your mouse pointer to the bottom left corner and right click
Click System
Click Device Manager
You will see where it says Mice and other pointing devices
Click this and it will open up another section
Then click on the touchpad device
on the "Device Manager" Window
You will see a computer with a little red X on it
Click this icon and it will uninstall the driver

Do not restart

Open up the Elan TP driver you just downloaded and double click setup.exe

Then just click next until it installs. PM me if you need any help.

When clicking you can slide and get the mouse to move before you click. Just click lower.

You weren't able to use rewards on yours? I ordered mine and used rewards. I ordered when this deal was first posted, in the middle of the night.

Dude, metro 2033 is one of the most demanding games for grx. There a great article on toms hardware benchmarking the integrated grx on the 2nd gen apu from amd vs intel grx. AMD has intel blown away, even with the a10-5800k metro got like 10fps on low settings. So you may get 6-8 with a 4000.

not joking lol..but I can play it with Sony T13 without any problem...default setting
the sony t13 uses the same hd 4000, but has a faster base cpu (i5). Since both laptops have the same resolution, gaming performance should be the same or slightly lower on this asus.

A lot of people are throwing the "ultrabook" phrase around for this laptop, it isn't. Staples doesn't call it an ultrabook, neither does ASUS. I spent an hour this morning at Staples using this machine, it's a little laggy and the screen is just OK. It's just a nice little laptop if you want/need a touchscreen, but it needs an SSD to be worthwhile, but that kind of kills the great deal.
