    uEFI is used and has no BIOS set at default.
    The Windows Store has a new section called ASUS picks and is a tweaked edition of 8.
    Windows 8 comes preinstalled with Adobe Reader X, no need to purchase.
    So, all in all, pretty nice laptop. uEFI will get on my nerves, though...
    The first thing I got rid of with my Asus was the Adobe Reader and installed Foxit, another was McAffee that went the same way, have Windows Defender, as MSE is now called.
    Adobe Reader X hasn't bothered me, but McAfee seems to be a big problem. I love Windows Defender, because It doesn't make me feel like I don't need another anti-virus.

    Man! I gotta find some camping terrain around here...

    Nice deal.

    Too bad every Friday isn't Black Friday.

    Here are some suggestions to extend things a bit:

    Black Friday
    Cyber Monday
    Amazon Tuesday
    Newegg Wednesday
    Crutchfield Thursday
