    Many interesting prices out there. You should also watch Ebay. Just get mine, the basic version (core-i3, SSD 64GB w/dock) + win 8 pro already upgraded + Full MsOffice, for $799, the bottom price. Surprisingly, I was the only bidder !

    Last week, I saw an auction for a q702 core-i5, SSD 128GB w/dock finishing at only $1000.

    The $320 keyboard dock at NewEgg was the cheapest I saw so far, but is out of stock right now.

    Provantage, $324 plus shipping. $330.85 total. Why so expensive? Other docks are around $150.

    Regards and good luck, Jim

    Got my dock Wednesday and my Q702 Thursday. Getting to know it before I install Win 8 Pro. Is there any special size, form, whatever for the SSD? I may go ahead and put in a larger one. Not sure what to buy.

    Did you leave/install a system partition on the ssd when you did your Win 8 installation?

    Thanks for the help.

    Regards, Jim

    Just out of curiosity I went to Newegg.com and found the price is now back up to $1099. Amazing.

    That is curious. It is $50 more than the W7D or W8 version now!

    It is back to $699 now. All Q702 models require you to check the shopping cart for the price.

    You need msata form factor. A 2.5" or larger drive won't fit. Of course, the smaller size is more expensive.

    Win 8 automatically creates extra partitions. I've somehow ended up with 4 extra partions, 1 unlabeled at 1 MB, 1 labeled Recovery at 300 MB, 1 EFI system partition at 100 MB, and one Reserved at 128 MB. I was going to try to delete/consolidate the extra partitions but decided not to muck around with it since the total space is small. I let the Win 8 installer do its thing, put Win 8 on the C partition, and then my data on two other partitions.
