I don't have my Ativ yet, it comes on Friday, but it turns out this 2 in 1 is VERY versatile.
It DOES have GPS. It uses a GNSS chip that needs a software shim (driver) to output NMEA compliant information to your GPS software via a virtual com port. Fortunately, there is one available, and is around $15. You can find it here: http://localizer.centrafuse.com/us/centrafuse-localizer
It DOES do NFC. As a Samsung product, it probably shouldn't surprise you, but yes, this Win 8 tablet shares more than a few features with Samsung's Android tablets and phones. Drivers are available through the Samsung updater - make sure everything is updated for NFC BEFORE you upgrade to 8.1 or there may be issues, such as 8.1 not recognizing your NFC at all.
It DOES support Android. Intel, in its wisdom, built an x86 port for this tablet to showcase the x86 processor. The only caveats are: No GPS (No GNSS driver support in Android, though there is one for linux) and some software isn't compiled for x86, so chances are some of your favorite apps won't work.
Still, if you like the idea of dual booting, here's a guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2401002
Finally, if you just want to use this tablet as a Wacom pad, you can use this guide (there's more posts about the 700t later in the thread): http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/samsung/47422-how-set-up-your-samsung-series-7-slate-serious-photoshop-work.html It covers altering stylus sensitivity, additional programs to support Photoshop and other drawing software, settings changes, etc. Real interesting stuff.

Any idea if this comes with the keyboard and s-pen or not? I tried contacting the seller on eBay but it said they have a high volume and couldn't reply.
I suppose I could buy it and send it back, but I'd prefer not to have to.
-edit- According to the thread from a month ago on that other deals site, it does come with the s-pen and keyboard dock, so it's the complete 2 in 1 setup. You will need to check the keyboard within the 30 day return period, apparently there are some that disconnect randomly.
