Default Asus Z96J for sweet price, review later

Just ordered myself an Asus Z96J laptop (open-box barebones) for 1096.7, comes with Core 2 Duo T5500, 1 gig (1024x1 stick) DDR2 667 RAM, 100 gig 5400 rpm HD, DVD-RW DL 8x, 802.11ABG wireless, 15.4" WSXGA+ screen, Bluetooth 2.0, 1.3 MP webcam, and 256 MB Radeon X1600 all for the low price of $1096.70. All I have to add is my Windows disc and some games!

Will follow-up with pictures and a short review if anyone is interested in about a week when it arrives.

It's especially good enough at the price I scored it at, considering most X1600/Geforce7600 class laptops start around $1400-$1500.
