This is the perfect laptop/tablet for the right kind of market. I wanted a touch enabled laptop that worked like a tablet. The Lenovo Yoga just didn't feel right for me while my experience with the Asus Transformer series of tablets made me hate carrying portable keyboard around.The only thing really painfully missing from this is more decent Windows 8 METRO style applications that take advantage of the touch screen.
