In each and every review of this device I've seen, along with those with similar hardware, reviewers seem to be assessing it as a computer that happens to have a detachable screen, rather than as a tablet with an attachable keyboard. They put it up against higher powered, higher specced ultrabooks and, low and behold, it loses. No shinola, Sherlock. This is not an ultrabook. It is a tablet that can also run (certain) x86 apps, with an attachable keyboard that makes such apps more practical. Every time I see someone reviewing this device mentioning Steam, I groan. Talk about missing the point. Meaningful comparisons would be against the Asus Transformer Prime, the Surface RT, even the Pro when it arrives. But against dedicated, fully specced laptops? It's like reviewing a Smart car and then criticising it because it doesn't break the 100mph mark on a motorway. Against a Transformer Prime? No context, I can actually get some work done on this. Against a Surface RT? I can get work done that requires things other than MS Office. The Pro, I worry about size and battery life, if the Samsung 700T I briefly had was any indicator. I am using the X2 as my main non-office machine at the moment. Java dev work in NetBeans primarily, associated webby parts of the app eg HTML and light image work, plus the inevitable Office bits. While it's not lightening quick it's good enough. Then, when on the road I can yank off the keyboard and kick back with a movie, read a magazine or comic, or waste time on the interwebs in comfort. That lot basically covers my bases. I think the trouble with these hybrid devices is that no-one quite has the right perspective yet to be able to assess them. After a few weeks with the X2 I honestly can't see me ever buying another non-Intel tablet - and I guess that means Windows 8 as a given.
