I think the Koreans can teach us a little when it comes to throwing in a few unexpected free goodies, this laptop came with all sorts of extras not available in the states.

Bought at Home-Plus in Munsan, South Korea for $800. The 64GB SSD is lightning fast; LED-LCD; White honeycomb finish; No mouse stick in middle of keyboard; Came with 1TB Passport about the size of a wallet; Came with laptop carrying case; came with 4GB...

Not enough USB ports but did come with an 8-Hub USB dongle and cell-phone charger

none so far. Everything is running smoothly
