Build feels pretty solid. I don't have any of the quality issues the previous reviewer had. The aluminum case feels strong and snug. A very small amount of light bleed on the inside screen on par with other IPS screens I've seen and none I can see on the outer screen. Both look great. The key board is very comfortable and track pad works well with the gestures needed to navigate windows 8. Having a matte screen with a full keyboard is awesome for doing real work. I dont mind that the inside screen isn't touch because it stays fingerprint free. Being able to use a stylus to draw and take notes is awesome. The app store in Windows 8 is still lacking but download Bluestacks and you can run Android apps on your pc. Most I've tired work flawlessly, no tot mention many apps that are paid in the Windows store are free on Android.
Too heavy to hold up as a tablet but I kind of knew that going in. Some of the Asus software is wonky. The live update utility messed up some of my drivers. The recovery partition does take up a lot of space and with no SD card slot it won't be easy to expand storage in the future. That said, being able to "refresh" windows from the recovery partition is useful, like when a utility messes up drivers. At this high of resolution on a 11.6 screen buttons are are small and hard to tap in desktop mode so I have to either use the touchpad or the stylus.
