question

Where exactly is the thunderbolt 2 port located?
Asked by: Anonymous
Make sure when you order your Zenbook pro, it says thunderbolt in the description and not display port. I ordered mine from B & H and the description was thunderbolt and it was thunderbolt. What was even cooler was that I plugged it into my Apple Thunderbolt display and the display worked perfectly without having to download any drivers at all! The original Zenbook pro only had display port so make sure you look at the specs wherever you end up buying one

question

It does not have a dedicated End key on keyboard except one on the numpad (numpad 8). Is there any way to hit End when Num lock is on? (Probably, Fn + Home, but the key is not marked that way).
Asked by: Anonymous
I contacted ASUS and they told me that Shft+Home must work as End. Can you, please, check this?

Does the Ethernet adaptor really only have 100 Mbps capacity and not 1000 Mbps?

I am sorry, this was a web error that we have no fixed. This computer would not have an Ethernet connection. I have attached an USB to Ethernet adapter, that would work great for your needs.
