Is there a way to simulate middle click on the touchpad? I only found option to use two finger tap for right click.
I'd like to know this too...as I hate to admit, but I'm a big Minesweeper player and I need the middle click aka both buttons down which is easy with two physical left and right button that are directly adjacent to each otra...

According to this [asus.com] website, the S200E comes in other colors. I didn't have a choice of colors when I placed my order. Is there a way to exchange the one I received from Staples for another color?

Sorry I'm on my mobile.. But it got so hot that it shut itself off.

Would not use without cooling pad. Weird because my s56c i5 3317u runs super cool and can leave that thing on forever without getting warm. Anyone else experience this or do I have a defective unit.

Please advise if possiblé

I don't think so. Staples only sells it in the one color. There are only a handful of retailers that sell the champagne silver. And I've not seen any that sell it in pink.

So, I got a little hasty and went ahead and wiped the hard drive before I realized the Factory Recovery disc needed to be generated from the laptop itself. Can anyone generate one and put the image up somewhere? Or find out if you can create the image on a USB memory stick?

I wasn't sure how big it was, but now that I know its 20 gigs, I might just go to Staples and ask the manager nicely if I can hook up a USB stick to a demo S200E for a while.

i would say 4 hours is about right, I usually use it for less than 2 hours and it'll say 54% and bare only 2 hours left. definitely not getting the 6~7 hours some people reporting.
hopefully getting an SSD will help.

Picked up yesterday and played with it...This is the first time for me with small screen and touch screen (my current laptop is 15.4). I feel like the screen is too small...but may be that impression will go away...i hope...

windows 8 is still alien as hell to me. I plan to dual boot in OS X and Windows 8 and got a 250GB 840 series to go with it. Hopefully using win8 for a few days will get better

Bought a squaretrade warranty with it because I know the battery is going to be bad by the time I want to sell it. So to guarantee my return, I bought the warranty based on the regular price of 522 as opposed to the sale price for 80 bucks. Read the SQ faqs, it's possible.

After reading reviews on SQ servicing Mac Airs for poor batteries, I'm good. Out the door, paid $450 after tax for the laptop, paid $80 for the 2 yr warranty, and I'll be covered for $522 once battery goes bad.
