So recently I've bought an ASUS K551LN, the design is pretty cool and all, but they added a pointless key on the keyboard which opens up an app called ASUS VivoBook. The app basically lets you see how much storage you have left, your memory usage, your current Power4Gear power plan, ASUS Cloud, Touch Pad, ASUS Smart Gesture, Splendid, and Audio Wizard, of all which I think are useless.
When the app is started the first time since boot up, the notification would pop up saying "ASUS VivoBook is initializing, please wait..." and then few seconds later the app appears. This is extremely annoying as I would sometimes press it accidentally while typing or playing games. I couldn't find a way to disable this bloatware, other than uninstalling it, but I am afraid something bad might happen.
Another question: Seems like ASUS replaced the previous touch pad program with their new one, "ASUS Smart Gesture". In Windows 7, a tab in a browser (IE, Chrome, etc.) can be closed by two fingers tapping within the touch pad area, but the Smart Gesture replaced it with "Show pop-up menu" which acts the same way you would right-click anywhere. That is pretty annoying too as I have to hover the cursor pointer to the little cross to close the tab.
