    I haven't seen that. Is it possible you've plugged in a USB ethernet adapter? :)

    Nope.. I have nothing plugged in except a Logitech unifying receiver for the anywhere mouse mx I use every once in a while.

    EDIT: My guess it it's using that chip for the USB 3.0 ports. It's probably just a feature of the USB solution just not hooked up to anything.. Perhaps people have installed that updated driver without thinking about it already.

    Does Razer supply Win 8.1 media or some way to reinstall the OS if you need to? I'm on the verge of ordering one of these little beasts. :)

    Nope, but there's a built-in tool to copy the recovery partition to a USB drive that works well

    Is that a Windows 8 built in tool (like its backup system) or is it a Razer program, just wondering.

    I believe it's a W8 built - in tool, but it just copies the recovery partition - it doesn't base it upon your install

    I do not claim to be an expert, but I had no luck using any of the built in Windows image features. I guess I could just never make it do exactly what I wanted. Same thing goes for Win 7 tools which are about the same I believe.

    I used a freeware tool (can't think of the name of it but there are many available) to just copy the entire system image to a USB drive, all partitions included. Then I replaced my SSD and did a restore, and then resized the main partition that changed in size. It worked great and if I ever have any problems like a complete drive failure I can just use that original image to get up and going really quick.

    Mine has similar blemishes at the tip of the two top snake tongues. I also have a speck of dust between thee screen and glass. Not impressed in respect to build quality, but as I live in Canada a return to Razer is a nightmare. I'm out $411 in duty and taxes and it's a crap shoot to get this back, not to mention a replacement would be taxed again going across the border.
