Summary: First, let me state for the record that I got a wild hair going originally and price shopped this gadget on the Internet. I found it cheaper at Newegg BUT...and it's a big but, I learned another hard lesson (like cheating on your cute, comfortable girlfriend with the painted up hottie in the electric red dress a couple of bar stools down). It was $26 cheaper at Newegg and was going to take a couple of extra days to process.
Summary: This was/is the system that popped into my head when I thought "it would be cool if *this* existed", and while researching all-in-ones lo and behold there it was. I've had mine close to a month now and I love it. It's the kind of tech that people ooh and aah about since it's novel, but it's also very functional. I bring the tablet with me to client meetings and it's ridiculously handy and always illicits comments.
Summary: This is a seriously cool machine. I set it up yesterday and am finding it an amazing piece of hardware, especially for the price. There is nothing cheap or unfinished about it, everything from the packaging to the branding is, well, ah, just cool. The team who created this did an excellent job. The screen is sharp. The keyboard is perhaps the best keyboard I've ever used (which really surprised me).
Summary: This thing is awesome! Its like an ipad on steroids. The keyboard is a bit annoying witht the shift key being smaller than normal but otherwise I love this thing! Screen is amazing and huge! The computer is not blazing fast or anything but i also got the lower model. So far I love it.
Summary: I bought the P1801-B054K, which is the i3 version. The item description says this unit has a 3.1GHz Core i3. This is not correct. It actually has the 3.3 GHz i3-3220, which is a pretty powerful processor. Most other sites offering this unit have the description correct, so I'm not sure why Amazon doesn't. The unit worked great, right out of the box, both in PC and Android mode. It's a REALLY big tablet...that's kind of fun. Perfect for lounging around the house.
Summary: Just one switch and I'm in Android or window 8! I can carry the tablet around and entertain my 4 years old and 1 year old. I can do my work in window, I can have my favorite android apps- with just one click using the same machine. Outstanding job, Asus! Now I do have one thing to wish for that is if it would come with a wacom stylus -it would be a perfect machine for work and play.
Summary: I just learned that i have to return this beautiful machine after only two days of enjoying it. I have a dead screen which will only work in windows mode if in the docking station and does not work in android mode at all. I tried to find a solution in the paper documentation as well as in the online manual. No dice. A phone call to tech assistance lead to no assistance whatsoever. Mail it in for service or return it to the store.
Summary: The photo used by Amazon is not correct. This is a Android Tablet that is out of this world. I am getting older and the smaller 10 inch tablets that are so ubiquitous do not cut it. This tablet is great. It does weigh a few pounds more than the smaller tablets but it sits on the lap just fine and it has a folding stand and is easy to move around.

Summary: OH I LOVE this computer! How wonderful it is to take my computer wherever I want to be - in the kitchen, on the deck, in the bedroom... I also love the dual processor - Windows 8 and Android. Very flexible. I am mostly blind, and between Windows Narrator and all the free Android accessibility and screen reading options plus the SVOX TTS app (under $3), I get better speech output and usability than with my $1,000 speech program Zoomtext.
