Just installed a Samsung EVO 256GB SSD and an Intel 7260HMW card from newegg
Windows 8.1 already had the drivers for the 7260HMW.

in case anyone comes back to this thread to enable Intel WiDi on the Asus S200E (due to incomplete or outdated info on other sites), I just did this recently with the following items:
1. from ebay: ($20 shipped from seller ovolink) Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 6235ANHMW Bluetooth 4.0 WIFI Half MINI PCI-E Card
2. from ebay: (~$4 shipped from seller cityeliter) Internal Antenna for WIFI Wireless Mini PCI PCI-E Card Intel 6235 5300 4965AG (S200E only has one antenna; with Intel Centrino mini card you'll need a 2nd antenna (white))
3. Windows 8.1 (I had to uninstall Intel WiDi software, reboot, uninstall Intel HD Graphics driver, reboot, use default Windows-found driver)
Then I just used the WiDi built into Win8.1 (new to Win8.1), which is accessible via the Windows Charms menu (right side swipe), selected Devices, selected Project, selected Netgear PTV2000 that I got FAR from another SD.

They even screwed up the first claim... ended up sending me $75... I had to e-mail them again and told them that the whole promotion was a disaster and asked for the full $100 and they said they'd send me another $25 prepaid card.. We'll see... They are reasonably fast in responding to e-mails at least...

Scuffed Housing (per panel)
Missing Feet Cushions
LCD Light Spots (moderate)
Cracked Housing (Screw anchor point)
I followed your lead (thank you!) and submitted a reply quoting the T&C and submitting pictures I had taken, also mentioned BBB, and countered $180. I was missing 1 feet cushion and they showed me a picture of a very minor crack at one of the screws in the housing, but they also accepted my counteroffer. They did state:
"The terms and conditions you have quoted were recently updated at the start of this week as a result many of our claims have not yet been adjusted in reflection of this. Additionally at the time you received the original revaluation email these changes had not been placed into effect."
What is disturbing is they are changing their T&Cs after the fact.

|Andrew20||Does anyone know if I can upgrade the cpu to an i5? Thinking the Intel Core i5-3427U. Will this work with it?|

All computers have radio interference shielding around the electronics to comply with the FCC rules.
The bottom cover has shielding with an extra shield on the inside of the cover around the cpu.
That's one of the reasons notebook WiFi antennas are placed under the top cover, behind the LCD.
You placed your antenna in the most optimal place, next to the speaker screen opening in the right side and away from all the cpu shielding and any cpu radio wave interference.
The small speaker screen opening will provide an unshielded pathway for the radio waves.
You can't do any better than that, absent of installing it behind the lcd, but taking the lcd apart in the S200e is very risky and most attempts to do that will probably damage the notebook. For almost all of us it is just not worth it.
So, you placed the gold antenna square right next to/near the 6235, right?

|bikerbandito||I ended up snaking the aux antenna around the ssd, then up and across the battery, taping it just inside the right speaker (as to avoid the metal shielding around the cpu). I ran the computer and did a test skype call with the laptop bottom removed and the computer vertical to the ground. I walked down the hallway (~35ft) and the audio was crystal clear. After re-securing the bottom back onto the computer...I could hardly walk out of the room before the audio began to cut out. For near ranging purposes everything works great. I think this is as good as it gets unless attempting to route behind the screen.|

UPDATE: moving the cable away from the metal housing/shielding around the cpu resolved the issue.

Scratched Housing (per panel)
LCD Keyboard Abrasion (Moderate)
LCD Light Spots (Moderate)
and want to give me $75 instead of the $100. If anyone has any tips on who to complain to get the full value I'm all ears, because I seriously consider everything except for the latch issue (which could've happened in traffic) "reasonable wear and tear"
I might try a BBB complaint since none of these issues were explicitly mentioned in the T&Cs as devaluation criteria.
Edit: a simple e-mail disagreeing with the value mentioning a possible BBB complaint was responded in a few hours and they met my counter offer of $90 for the trade-in, so they were reasonable... so definitely reply back with an e-mail to the email@example.com if you feel your valuation was unreasonable.

WiDi TV Adapters
That's the VGA driver I have.
The VGA driver is crucial for WiDi.
When I got the S200e, I immediately went to the ASUS site and got all the updated drivers for ALL the devices.
Some devices do not have updated drivers but some do.
The VGA, the VIA audio, the DPTF, the SmartGesture touchpad, and some others, I think, have updates. The BIOS is also up to v.208 but it is listed under the X202e section.
I have a couple of questions for you:
Since you have the Netgear Push2TV adapter, can you watch DRM/HDPC protected content like movies, dvds, etc., or If you try to watch protected content over WiDi, do you get an error message that states, "there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card" or something similar?
Also, which model do you have, PTV3000, 2000, 1000?
I understand that the D-Link MainStage DHD-131 is advertised as having No Codec Content Protection Limitations and No DRM Issues.
The Belkin device states that: "Insert a Blu-ray disc into your laptop's disc drive, then watch it on your HDTV." which implies no DRM issues.
I haven't seen the same for the Netgear devices.
Thanks in advance.

Look under VGA Version V22.214.171.12475.01

From your description above it sounds like a communications software issue.
