Lmfao

1920 x 1080 on an 11" (dual) screen? Yummy.

Lenov0, please take notes. 1366 is no longer acceptable.

I keep hovering over the buy button for some reason. Someone talk me out of it.

Nah, talked myself out of it. Too many issues reported, even at the price.

4gb RAM sounds low. is it easy to upgrade?

coolbreeze,
what issues did you find that changed your mind?
I'm tempted to get rid of my 17" SB-i7 tank of a laptop to get this this thing...
Bump on the RAM question. I think this thing should have 8 minimum...

seem like you can't do anything to the RAM. http://www.cnet.com/laptops/asus-taichi-21-dh71/4507-3121_7-3547... ( Provided memory is soldered )

Mostly issues with screen responsiveness and poor quality control. Read one too many "I'm on my 4th Taichi" comments.

At that price, I'd get a Surface Pro.

I saw this baby at a Microsoft Store. It's actually a fairly elegant machine, however complaints of quality are definitely troubling. But besides that, it's probably best to wait for the Haswell release. I'm really curious to see how much more improved this processor line will be.

haswell won't bring the jaw dropping performance that conroe and sandybridge did. its going to bring power consumption to a level we never could of thought of 10 years ago. broadwell is on the same path, more focus on power consumption and the addition of commercial/desktop DDR4

Except in graphics - which is probably relevant to your interests if you want a laptop like this.

And that's why Ivy Bridge is undergoing a fire sale right now. Haswell laptops will be able to finally obsolete the discreet GPU.
