Package arrived in 7 days, but windows activation fails -- shows the windows ID already assigned to another user.
No windows COA sticker on the laptop.
Called Asus Refurb support, was told to ship it back (standard shipping only paid) and allow 5 to 7 business days plus the two-way shipping time.

Yeah, I'm having the exact same issue with one of the other Asus laptops. It works fine, except for this windows key problem.
Asus Refurb actually told me that it wasn't them that dealt with the machine, since they "wouldn't use a key at all" or something like that. I don't know if that's actually true or not. All that came in the box, other than laptop and cord, was a yellow sheet from Asus Refurb.
Does anyone know who actually did the reconditioning on these products, so I can hassle them about it? Woot support is not helpful.
