@sam0 do you have to pay over the phone if you ring up AO to price match? Thanks for any help! Edit: seems you do, though you could order it and ring them retroactively to get the reduction too, but then there's no 100% guarantee you'll get the lower price I suppose so went for the phone order. Thanks OP!
I just got another cheap laptop with the same layout. the HP 255 from ebuyer, and it's just bad to use. There's no right ctrl button, no backslash next to the left shift, I don't even remember where the hash tag is without looking at it. And a lot of the time you go to hit enter, and hit the little button above it, because it's just really wide, taking up 2 key spaces. The misaligned arrow keys don't look pleasant to use either. It's nothing like I've ever used before, and I've been using laptops for 15+ years. It seems to be a US layout, but everything about it points to it using this layout, regardless of the country.
Should have realised that, me being a nurse and all!
just look at reviews yourself if you are interested as there is some inaccurate comments on here quite often. Notebookcheck review for the Asus 503 noted it had a good layout with great keys and that the keyboard was a strong point of the laptop, I would imagine the same is for the 504.
This is the 60hz AHVA panel version, according to it-supplier. They've good reviews on facebook and pricespy, they were very helpful when I phoned to check on the panel yesterday. Looks fine to me (pic) styling might be a bit OTT for some but layout is fine.
