Customers must register online within 60-days from purchase date to be eligible. One claim per notebook. Exclusions may apply. For details, please visit adp.asus.com.


Alternatively, I saw the non-4k in store for $999. Website wants $15 for S/H. In store is handing out $25 Off coupons for online purchases that exceed $250. When I used the code, it also gave me free shipping. Might not be the best price, but certainly competitive when you factor in the included 2-year warranty + additional 2-year warranty when you use the Costco Visa card. 90-day return policy protects against better deals showing up on BF.

960m laptop should be in the 600-700 price range. Since Nvidia has released the 10 series for laptop which is much more powerful.

Thanks for tip. When I searched around, what I found for 960m laptops at your suggested price point of $700 was usually an i5, with 8GB of RAM, and only a 2GB NVIDIA graphics card. So, is getting an i7, with 16gb, and a 4GB graphics card still over priced at $1000? What about the 4k with the larger SSD for $100 more?

Thanks again. I tend to shop at Costco because I've been burned too many times in the past with online orders at places like Frys and even Newegg. I recognize there is a cost involved in shopping at Costco, but for me the peace of mind is worth something. Especially at this time of year. 90 day return policy with no questions asked deal proofs me I guess for when I find that $700 price PC.

960m wont be able to handle gaming at 4k. As a reference i sold an 970m, i7, 120ssd, 1tb hdd 14in laptop that was less than an inch thick, so almost a gaming ultrabook on ebay 2 months ago for $820.

I think to get a 4k VR ready laptop will blow past my @$1000 price range. And likely won't come with a warranty to speak of. But perhaps the 4k non 1060m laptops will drop in the next month or so. I tried: Acer Aspire V15 Laptop - Intel Core i5 - 4K Ultra HD - 2GB Graphics for $600 from Costco and it was pretty slow and the battery life was on the quick side. But it did not have an SSD, had half the RAM, and 2GB graphics card. Returned in store without hassle. I was hoping the item I posted would be much better. But it sounds like the item I posted should be around the $600-700 to be a deal? I just can't find that price for what this has.

Thanks for education. Nice job on the ebay sale. I'm sure people have more ways to save shopping through eBay than they do Costco. But the return options don't really let me test drive before I decide to keep.

I purchased this laptop from Fry's with 2 minor differences:

128gb SSD instead of 256gb
1080p screen instead of 4k

Cost was $649.99 + tax.

I'd say that is a way better deal than this one and that was a month ago.

Does great at 1080p, No complaints in the gaming department.
