My New Machine - ASUS X550LD

Bought ASUS X550LD (XX082D) laptop - Core I7 (4th gen), 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, NVIDIA GT 820M graphics card and 2GB VRAM. But with DOS. OS didn't matter a much as I am used to Ubuntu.

As on 17May2014, flipkart price was Rs. 55000. But I gave a try in SP Road, Bangalore. Got it for Rs. 54000. Got a ASUS laptop bag, INTEX wireless keyboard & mouse, and laptop keyboard protective film free along with the laptop.

Installed Ubuntu-14.04 LTS successfully. But the touchpad is not responding. Have to find a proper driver for that.
