You're doing it right, Asus 03/29/2012
For starters, this is a simply beautiful machine. From the packaging to the "Tags", ASUS thought of almost everything when building this. When you first open the box (+1 for Newegg and ASUS) the laptop is suspended by all corners by foam, and contained within yet another box for safety. The outside of the laptop is completely free of any branding stickers, which can be a problem for some laptops. I've read that ASUS got approval from both Microsoft and Intel to change the coloring of the tags to a monochrome, and it really adds to the "sleek" look. You will find merely 2 stickers on the inside, and one on the power brick and that is it.
IT does come with some of ASUS' software, such as standby widgets and "performance mode" but these are not very annoying, and of course easy to get rid of if you don't like them. This is fast, has a great screen, is lightweight and gets good battery life. If they manage to get a lit keyboard on this, it will be a total Mac Killer.
