Okay, looks like I'm jumping on this one as well. For Microsoft Office, should I buy it outright or pay the annual subscription? I still remember when we had to buy the software with codes!

Got one for pickup at my local store but was playing around with one during lunch. The thing that stood out the most was the cheap and flimsy feel. It was very light and seemed to be made entirely of soft plastic. Youtube took about 5 seconds to load in Edge. Going to sleep on this because of the good specs but the build quality along with small capacity & lack of optical drive are negatives for me.

FYI guys, this $25 code worked at about 5:30pm EST but went to order another at 5:45 and no longer valid.

Did you use a different account the second time? When I ordered from Staples this morning (using a different code than you used), I had to use two different accounts.

It doesn't say the code is invalid for me. Says: "This discount code does not qualify for this order right now". I tried increasing the total amount but still gives me that error.

I would like to know as well what's the best option for office. Mainly just need word and excel.

Laptop showed up today. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet but I was surprised because online it doesn't even say it shipped yet.

Now if Staples could just find my missing LG monitor that I've paid for and shipped on the 27th to my local store and never arrived....

Yes, I tried again with a different email address (still used guest checkout) and the code worked at about 6:15pm EST yesterday.

I'm impressed with the laptop given the price point. Coming from a high end/gaming desktop this is going to be a perfect cheap carry around device for browsing etc.
