Low res Non-IPS Zenbook UX32VD?

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for the Zenbook UX32VD with the non-IPS lower resolution screen anywhere except Bestbuy (

I do not want the higher res screen (do NOT want). It adds $300 to the price and practically every review talks about how it's really too high of a res for typical operation on a 13.3" screen, to the point that scaling text in Windows 7 messes up websites, etc. I am perfectly happy with 720p and mediocre viewing angles, thanks.

I was hoping the lower res would be on Amazon, but it's not as far as I can tell. Does anyone know if there's anywhere else I can get this? The model is UX32VD-R5504H, and according to ASUS and several reviewers the lower res versions *should* be available normally.

I bought that exact one. It is great, however the track pad is useless! You will need a mouse to do anything.

Thanks for the replies, but that's not the right Zenbook- that's the UX32A, I need the UX32VD with the ivybridge i5 and discrete graphics (look at the Bestbuy link).

Any ideas?

Going by google shopping, its not available anywhere other than bestbuy. Do they not have bestbuy where you live? You might have a store affiliated with best buys store and be able to "order" one to that store...

Just a thought. Oh and try to brighten up, were trying to help you here :)

Sorry, didn't mean to be snippy- typing from my phone and didn't take a good look at it before I submitted. Yeah, I was hoping someone would have some other magical way of finding out where I can this darned elusive ultrabook. I have a Bestbuy, but they have crappy extended warranties and I thought it was weird I was only seeing it there. Maybe other retailers will get it around black friday?

It could be exclusively for BestBuy.

Any idea if this exact model has a built-in SD card slot? I know the specs on says no but I just want to verify as I really prefer this Windows 7 model over the Windows 8 one. Much appreciated!
