    So confused with all the discussions! O_O But 63k for a model with IPS, Windows OS and 4gb RAM is good!

    Yea... Laptops generally do not have great audio.... This is just about average... (Some might say even below average!)

    It'll be worth it I think. The DDR5 will be way more future proof! Also... Look at the eBay US deals. You might get one in your budget. There was a DS71 being sold for 799$ not long before

    This thread has really grown! O_O I really need to get internet! And yea... The HD is 7200rpm. Just checked. And Alias_01, other than a RAM upgrade, it is probably one of the better options out there at this price point. Go for it.

    Storage Solutions Recommend a 4/8 GB pen drive (small form factor) to host a bootable Linux OS

    Go for the Asus. (128GB SSD, 16GB RAM and the IPS display is definitely worth it.)

    I did my product registration. Not sure if I have to register separately for Global Warranty... And PM the seller here if you want. He replies in a day or two.

    I will try and do a detailed review but not sure if I'll get the time. I'll give you a brief idea. Build: It feels solid. Initially I was a little apprehensive as the top flexed a little bit under pressure. But the rest of the laptop is solid. No such issues. The flex with the top is still...
