Verified Purchase
I was quite impressed with several items on this computer:

1) The overall build quality is excellent, and the fre laptop case was a nice (and unknown by myself) touch
2) After removing most of the Asus bloatware and putting the computer power settings on the Microsoft balanced settings I found that the battery life improved significantly. Also the fan noise greatly decreased as the processor can now idle properly.
3) The performance of the processor and full bore is also quite good (6.2 processor score and 6.6 gaming graphic score on WEI) more than sufficient for any application with the exception of high end gaming and video editing/compression
4) Fantastic monitor. I am not even sure what is the next cheapest laptop you can get with a high quality 1080P TOUCHSCREEN monitor.
5) Very light overall. Honestly if it was much lighter I would be concerned about its overall structural integrity as a touchscreen computer.
6) Although I have previously installed windows 8 on a desktop, using it on a touchscreen laptop is a significant improvement. I find myself able to find a sweet spot for when to use the touchscreen (which can also easily pull up a keyboard) and using the actual keyboard. I find it better than either a traditional desktop/laptop or a tablet.
7) The only negatives I have are the initial bloatware (which can be easily removed) and the trackpad/mouse on the keyboard. The trackpad is actually too sensitive and it takes some time to be able to type on the keyboard without activating the trackpad.

Strongly recommend this computer as I know of now other which can do as much as this computer for less than $1000.

I have been using this laptop for the past month and could not be more pleased! It has exceeded all my expectations and my friends are envious. The Look and feel, Size, AMD A10 processor, and Touch Screen... ALL for under $800 is a total deal!!

Looking forward to seeing what's next from Asus\AMD!!

I bought this computer last week.

I upgraded the HD to an SSD, and changed the 2GB DDR card into a 4GB card, giving me 6GB (2GB are permanently soldered into the motherboard somewhere).
It definitely needs that extra 2GB memory to run smoothly.

You need to be very careful when changing the hard drive. You need to carefully and very slightly lift up/shift the battery to gain access to 2 of the HD screws, and simultaneously be very careful to not break the thin wires connecting the battery to the base. It's not a procedure I'd want to do too often. You also need a smaller screwdriver than usual to open up the back cover. I suspect they don't want you opening it.

The screen is beautiful, and the keyboard, with one sticking point, is quite comfortable.

For some strange reason they put the Power button where the Delete key normally sits, so I've been putting the computer to sleep by accident as I'm correcting my typing. But, I'm doing it less often now, as I'm getting used to it being there.

At first the browser and other displays kept resizing on me like crazy. I then realized it was the multitouch on the touchpad that is apparently very sensitive. I reset the touchpad to only be single touch, and that fixed that problem. I'm not sure why you would even need a multitouch touchpad when you have a touchcreen. I prefer a mouse over a touchpad anyway.

I upgraded the computer to 8.1.
Unrelated to this computer, Windows 8.1 has a known problem in which it suddenly freezes at random. I found a temporary solution that seems to unfreeze it. I press on the power button once to put the computer to sleep, and again to wake it up. The computer unfreezes.
Still, I'd prefer Microsoft release a real solution to their problem.
