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