Seems like an almost perfect deal, if it weren't for the crappy 2 cell battery I'd be all over this

OP, your link is broken and this a 15.6" (non-touch) model. Good deal, but you should probably update your post.

It's a good price, but I wish it didn't have a optical drive. It adds weight and bulk.

If that 5-6 ounces is too much bulk, you can always remove it.

It's not a crappy Lithium-Ion battery like you're used to. It's a Lithium-Polymer battery. It should get at least 5 hours+ of battery life considering it's got an SSD drive.

There seems to be contradicting information on the Newegg product page regarding the maximum amount of supported RAM:

Overview tab section says "up to 8GB RAM (expandable to 16GB)"

Specifications tab says the Max Memory Supported is 12GB.

Q&A tab has a question "Is it possible to upgrade the amount of ram?" followed by differing answers as to what the max supported is.


Can someone who has purchased the i5 variation of this laptop from Newegg report back here about what the true max supported RAM is? The configuration of DIMMS it comes with? Or shed some light on this contradicting information?

Also curious if anyone has successfully removed the dvd drive and replaced it with a 2nd hard drive?

I would get a slim-optical to 2.5 HDD converter tray and toss a 1TB HDD into this as a data drive.

That wouldn't help with the weight or bulk, but it would at least give a use for an otherwise unused part of the laptop...

I've replaced optical drives in with a second HDD in 4 or 5 laptops... I just find a tray that accommodates it...

The biggest problem I found was that in some instances I couldn't get the laptop to boot from the new drive when it was in the optical bay location... I only ran into this because I was usually adding a SSD boot drives to laptops that only had HDDs ... I just switched locations of the drives after cloning the boot drive, everything worked fine after that...

Lithium polymer batteries have less maximum specific energy than li-ion(aka lithium cobalt oxide since every lithium rechargeable battery is lithium ion). LiPo is used because it's cheaper to make, can have various form factor, safer, has higher discharge rate. This laptop has a 38Whr battery, it's not going to last longer just because it's Li Po. Both types of battery have the same discharge curve so you are not going to get more capacity out of one or the other. To last 5+ hours the laptop cannot draw more than 6W per hour assuming 80% discharge, so I'm going to have to call BS on your statement unless you just idle the laptop. Even Asus only rates it "up to" 5 hours.

I used to sell batteries wave

My wife has a laptop like this. It has the chicklet keys with a number pad in the same space as a normal keyboard with no number pad, so it's smaller than normal and the main keyboard is skewed off to the left side of the laptop. I find touch typing on this thing annoying.
