Thanks for the feedback.
Meanwhile i am in queue for live chat with ASUS.
They made my laptop and the writer so they ought to be able to validate my proposed purchase.
That said, I have been in the queue for a long time and had to re-enter after being bounced out. At this point I have been at number 25 spot for over 5 minute. Anyways, thanks. I will follow up with my answer from ASUS, if I get there. H
