Can anyone who purchased this check the HD capacity? The website/specs say 750 GB but I see Total Size
C: is 651 GB (free 624 GB)
D: is 24.9 GB (free 22.4 GB)
What happened to the remaining 75GB? Or maybe Windows 8 shows things differently?
I plan on returning this laptop over the weekend. I agree that it feels slow and the touch pad is pretty bad as well. I thought I might be able to get used to the resolution, but after a few hours I think it is just horrible. Trying to write code on this laptop is pretty horrendous as I lose most of the screen between the visual studio toolbar and the task bar.

Every HDD varies in actual usable capacity. You'll find that there is always a disclaimer that allows the manufacturer some leeway in their capacity claims. The Windows 8 system files probably make up around 20-30GB of your "missing" 75GB, meaning that your HDD's actual capacity is ~700GB.
Anyone return their laptop? I purchased this as a Youtube/surfing machine for my mother-in-law. These gimmicky Windows 8 gestures on the touchpad are horrible.
Can anyone comment on the Windows 8 experience after regedit-ing the gestures out? I think if I got rid of them it would be pretty decent, but I'm inclined to think the touchpad is majorly sucking as well.
