Since this is the only place where you can purchase one in the US I thought I would share this top of the line Ultrabook. Expensive but priced to compete directly with the MacBook Pro Retina 15".

If you call Microsoft Rep and ask them for a student discount code, you can get 10% off this deal.
$2500 - 10% = $2250

There doesn't exist a UX51VZ/u500vz w/ Intel HD 4000 graphics so it's a typo.

my asus zenbook prime 13 inch with i5 and intel 4000 ran League of legends on medium-low settings, and could not play anything else (starcraft II, dota II, crysis on low with good FPS). you're welcome, bet alot of you were wondering about one of those games. LMAO

TF2 on steam platform on low resolution (i think 1440 if i remember correctly) with all that shader and bs crap on low. (i test out alot of new products, exact model i used was the best buy exclusive UX31A, black touchscreen win 8 model for 1099), but im sure if you are a high ranked player you already have a laptop better and less overpriced than this thing laugh out loud

Geez, I remember when desktops were that price! Hard to believe how inexpensive computers have become when you think about it.

I think the $1800 before taxes Retina MacBook pro I keep seeing over at Best Buy is a much better deal than this. I'm mostly talking about the open box deals, but there are clearance ones around that price if you look hard enough like what one slickdealer did.
