This is currently a FP deal at $400. I got mine for $275 @ Staples.

These are in-stock at most stores (my Staples had 4 of them...3 now!), and will trade in my worthless 4-year old netbook. Total cost = $275 + tax.

No, not really, since this deal IS all about the trade in making the total $275, and of course there are a lot of people with Staples Rewards looking for a way to use them up.

It's not necessarily a better deal with Staples or Adorama, depending on whether you've got an old netbook lying around or some Rewards that have to be spent soon or not.

I get that you didn't mean to crap on this deal, but don't you think leaving out the most important part of the deal and comparing what's left over is kinda sorta thread crapping? Because then you're not actually comparing the deal in the OP to the FP one, you're comparing a deal of your own making with the FP one, and then saying the one in the OP isn't all that great.

Me, personally, I DO happen to have an old netbook that I'd happily trade for $100 credit AND some Staples rewards sitting in my account. $275, probably around $300 after taxes, less my rewards seems like a good deal. I may just swing by Staples later today and see if they've any left. I have a nice notebook, but it's heavy. This might be better, and then I could sell the notebook...hmm...

I totally agree. I racked up over 600 in Staples GC from their crazy 15 for 100 GC deal back in November. Been waiting for a decent lappy deal from them.

I also got an extremely old Centrino chip lappy that I can trade in.

All in, it's a $307 lappy. I'll pay with Staples GC and try to also get a 200 Visa GC while I'm at it to fully exit out of my Staples GCs and still get a $15 check.

I called up some stores, most are out in Dallas but one of them is holding a new one for me and I'll pickup in a couple of hours.

It's not the best laptop but it's a decent small laptop for travel and surfing for the wife. My lappy is a 2 year old Vaio Z i5. Love it. Hate the look of the new Z.

For those who got the laptop from your local store, did you call the store to check their inventory before your trip? It shows "low stock clearance item" everywhere, so I am afraid it's out of stock everywhere.
I called about 6 and visited 1(all of which showed low stock clearance item" on inventory checker)

5 were out. no floor or open box either.
I visited one where someone just bought the floor model but for only 5% off.
I called another which is 25min away and they had a new one and are holding it for me. I'll pickup in a couple of hours.

I would suggest you call and check and hold if possible.

1) Not everybody has a laptop/tablet laying around to trade in.
2) For those who do have laptops/tablets laying around to trade in, some are probably worth more than $100 on CL/E-bay/etc. -- even after time/fees/etc.

The frontpage deal could be readily had by anybody and everybody. Tax free for most (if not all) and free shipping. Not hunting. No hoping. No gas. And since not everybody (I would estimate that few people, actually) have tablets/laptops laying around that are worth sub-$100 for a trade in, again, the "I got it for $275" deal isn't available to most people. Even then, you didn't get the computer for $275 OTD. You got it for $275 (after trade-in "refund" down the road = more hassle) + tax + you're no longer in possession of your laptop/tablet. If your laptop was truly worth $0, then yes, you got this for $275.

If all of the stars align and you have a ton of rewards + a junk laptop/tablet that you don't care about, plus a store with stock nearby then a great deal for you and anybody else who this fits. My point was simply this -- the FP deal was available to anybody who wanted it with no "hoping they have it in stock". And "trade-ins" aside (since Adorama didn't require a trade-in to "sweeten" the deal), the price points were almost exactly the same since the Staples one would have tax.
Any idea what #2 under "Qualifying Trade ins" means?
2. "It should be working (including power supply and battery), and clear of your personal data"

No idea as I didn't look into the trade-in details as I wasn't interested in the deal nor do I have a laptop/tablet to trade in.

I hear you. I have two laptops that could be traded, but one is dicey as whether it needs to load windows or not and the screen does not work unless you external monitor. And then if a trade-in was excepted I would have to get the laptop I want on it would be a no go.

OK ... probably a dumb question, but have mercy please!

With all this talk about the limited time of use with the battery ... I'm wondering ... does this unit also run off of AC?

I would be pretty sure it does. I've yet to see a computer that doesn't.

Yes, absolutely... Just like any other laptop.

Just picked an open box model up for 385 including tax in cali..

Salespeople were horrible though. Went in at 8:30 am and they took 20 minutes just to find the tool to get the laptop off of its display, and then couldn't figure out the password to restore the demo stuff on it. I ended up paying for it and leaving because the manager that knew the password wasn't coming in till 11 am.. The earliest they said i could get it was 11:30, which is pretty ridiculous. but its hard to argue such a great laptop for the price, not going back to Staples though..
Update...

They called me @ 11am saying that they still made no progress on getting into the system to wipe the demo crap off of it. They said they probably wouldn't be able to make any progress on it until 2pm when someone who MIGHT know how to do it comes in.. Don't know if anyone else has had trouble like this with Staples, but I for one am never going back..

I almost purchased a demo display w/additional 5% as well, and was told I could purchase but would have to pick up next day to remove the demo programs. No thx, plus I was reading that these have an internal battery and u have to send in to Asus if u need replaced out your pocket, I wouldn't mind if I purchased brand new, but a demo is on all day 7 days a week, jus something to think about, but maybe purchase extended warranty just in case if getting a display demo model

Thank you so much for your suggestion! Only one local store has some open box left. But they are not going to hold one for me. They said that I have to go there to see if they are sellable...

Scored 1 NIB @ 48124 for $396 out the door.


First impressions of Windows 8 on this box is snappy.
Glossy screen, meh - but easy to wipe.
Verdict still out on the non-removable battery.


Hoping that I can get $100 for my Dell Mini 9 that I paid $135 for many years ago...
