"Sleek design and full Win8 os."4.0 starson by turrrible_turrrible
Pros: -Design is eye catching
-Excellent Battery life so far
-smart charging (it chrages the tablet first, then charges the keyboard dock.
-Smaller games run well(I have some emulators that have been fun on the go)
Cons: -Atom processor is no i-series and it shows when multi-tasking
-wish the tablet itself had more ports on it (sd slots are on keyboard)
-a little pricey considering the processing power
-would appreciate including the stylus for that price
Summary: I got this as a second computer to my i3 laptop I already had at home. I just needed something that was more road worthy and portable. I was intrigued by the idea of also having the ability to make it to a tablet as well.Sorry, just saw your replies. It can multi-task, but the atom processor is not going to be flying through it like an I-series chip would do.
I looked through the items available and gave some serious consideration to some others (surface rt, Samsung Ativ) and ended up liking the build on this one the best. I did pause at the price. I considered getting a smaller laptop and a tablet separate, but I just want one thing to take for the road. I don't need something that has crazy amounts of processing power because it would mainly be for writing and working (via email) on the road.
After a week I am pleased with the performance and the battery life has been stellar. The track pad works well enough (despite some adjustment since my other PC's trackpad is much bigger). I found the keys to be comfortable and responsive for typing at even over a period of time.
As far as tablet mode I have enjoyed reading the news on this and I personally find the 11" size to be the sweet spot for me as far as sitting down for a while to consume media.
My biggest frustration came from the still sparse Windows 8 app store. But, I know over time it will expand. I had some serious fun playing snes emulators on the road while waiting to start a meeting.
I eagerly await the next group of intel chips in the future that will provide a competive battery life with even better performance so that maybe in the futre I could switch to something like this as my fulltime PC.

That being said I just did a powerpoint presentation from my x2 and it handled it no problem. I think if you were using multiple office apps at the same time you might notice a slowdown. But, excel and word together haven't given me any trouble so far.
