  • 512GB SSD, yikes!
  • wish i didn't have a yoga2pro or i would be all over this despite the drop in performance i would have
  • 699$ for 256 ssd,8gb ram,IPS full HD display cool .... Just sell in India..I want to buy it.
  • Yess definitely.. We seriously need some pricing neutrality in india.
  • Exactly bro.... 300$ phone means after taxes and subsidies it will turn into 340$+ price....
  • Even if it comes at 50k ₹ after including all taxes subsides vagera vagera ... in India I will buy it..
  • Why you're expecting it to sell with complimentary "Viagra" for?
  • Ha ha ha :) :) :) It's not what you think "vagera vagera"means "so on".
  • It costs 73k ₹ in India through ebay.. That to 256 ssd version, better I buy Dell 5548.
  • Dear WC Team, One small feedback. Given the international audience of this site, it will be of great help if you use standard metrics that the rest of the world uses. For example, none of us In India understand what a pound really means. It will help us if you can write the weight in grams at least in brackets to cater to your international audience. Regards, Deepak.
  • Dear Dimwit,
    We like the idea but spoon feeding is strictly unappreciated. We suppose you have Cortana to help you with that, given you have some brains. Offence intended.
    Thank you.
  • Don't be lazy and download a damn converter tool! Lazy fucktard.
  • Except there is a much larger percentage of the world that doesn't use pounds, like over 95 percent.
  • Precisely... It's not a tough conversion though... For anyone who has studied basic physics courses, etc.
  • 1kg =2.2 pounds. In case you ever need to convert in the future (:
  • Thank you :) I'll do my mental math next time around!
  • Dear entitled person, We won't ask you to use your brain. We only ask you to use the internet. Thanks
  • Those who are criticising deepak are the first to request mentioning the price in dollars in articles related to India. Idiots.
  • Ah, hypocrisy at its simplest form. Never fails to amaze, anywhere!
  • Do you have anything to backup your statement? Please provide the link. If you don't, then you are an idiot yourself.
  • Friends, it is not a question of being lazy or not being able to use my brain. The question is about standards, I have no complaints about using $ for currency as $ is the most used currency and pretty much the standard. The world trades in USD. My suggeston was WRT weights grams are easier for many people to understand especially as most countries use the metric system. The dimensions for example are written in Millimetres which are easy to understand, wouldn't it be harder if we suddenly dealt with dimensions in inches or whatever? I'm not sure if my tone sounded sarcastic but if it did I apologize. Also, It doesn't hurt to be polite people. We should all get along given that we are challengers when in comes to mobile market share.  
  • People need to be more polite around here. No worries man. Keep the suggestions coming.
  • A pound is roughly 500 grams, so that one is easy enough. Then you have one inch " at 2,54 cm. A foot is 12" and a yard is 3 feet.
  • A pound is roughly 100 rupees.
  • Agree. Regards from Sweden.
  • What's the price for the normal Zen book
  • That crystal white is a bloody good price, the processor is nothing amazing but still, it ain't half bad.
  • Wow so much venom for what seemed like a normal suggestion from my end. I've been a visitor of this site from 2010 but never commented much. I finally commented and I am getting bashed left and right lol. And I was thinking that windows fans would be a close knit community :(
  • Don't pay attention to those commenters, they were out of line. & people wonder why the rest of the world thinks Americans are all entitled & arrogant. -from an American with manners
  • Just comment but don't pay attention to those people who doesn't know,what you were saying was true..
  • Thanks a lot! I was taken aback as I clearly addressed my concerns to the editorial team but I was blasted left and right by fellow forum members haha :)
  • Oh we love to knit!
  • It is the internet. I guess it comes with the territory. Technically the metric system is a better, more logical, system, but most of us Americans are resistant to change for one reason or another. Oh well. Posted via my HTC One (M7)
  • Every one is resistant to change while "Change is the only thing constant" lol :D
  • Why limit the white one? People want white ultrabooks. Make em standard.
  • A lot of the Lumia phones in white were also limited, I was never actually able to find a white Lumia 1020. Maybe it's harder to manufacture or materials cost more?
  • What's the difference with the new processor (Core M-5Y71 v Core M-5Y10c)?  Also, does this one have a touch screen?
  • I just tried to buy it through Asus' site, but its so ghetto I couldn't get the order placed correctly. Really Asus, PayPal?
  • Anyone else get an order in? Got one placed today. Curious if they'll ship soon.
