Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It does what it says on the box and the screen resolution is awesome.
Bad points:
The multi-touch track pad brings Windows 8 to life. However it takes some getting used to. Sometimes I find myself accidently swiping in open windows from the left.

John, Commuting Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Really small, compact, light and user friendly, nevertheless powerful.
Screen has lots of pixels in a tiny area, but is still very readable.
SSD is fast and (presumably) more robust than mechanical hard drive.
Very quick to start up and shut down.
Silent most of the time, fan is quiet and only needed at times of intense CPU activity.
Bad points:
Win 8 - it seems that there is less control over certain things, e.g. assigning default programs to particular file types. Irritations such as apps taking over whole screen and hiding desktop (why not put them in a window as normal). The swiping to get the start panel is a constant intrusion when using the tablet. Again MS have gone for eye-candy at the cost of some of the basic functionality that we had in XP,
Sound (despite B&O) is poor, but you can't expect HiFi on a machine this small.
Only 256GB of hard disk may become a frustration for me in time, but not yet.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
There are two SSDs used in this model, Adata and Sandisk. You cannot order a specific version and you only find out which version you have when you open the cardboard box. Not good form Asus.

Good points:
Very solid great performance
Bad points:
Windows 8 is very frustrating if you use it for business - it is not intuitive and offers no benefits. I had to download some software to make it look like windows 7
