    for bluetooth:

    - instal WLAN driver from asus website in compatibility mod (windows 7)
    - just install bluetooth driver when installer ask you.
    - restart and enjoy.

    bluetooth work fine for me.

    battery ok
    Bluetooth ok (when you install the WLAN drivers from asus in compatibity mode windows 7)
    Pen ok
    touch ok
    light screen ok

    boot in 8 seconds
    Wake in 0.5 seconds

    Aww, shoot. Lack of buttons and easy rotation is why I went back to Win7 from the earlier W8 tech preview. The minute somebody gets rotation working, I'm in.

    I thought big selling thing for win 8 is design for tablet; yet no rotations? uhmm. I thought Samsung 7 and EP121 are MS test vehicles...S7 has rotation issue too.

    No rotation of the screen.
    Drivers "EeeSlate ACPI Utiity" and "EeeSlate ACPI Utiity (gsensor)" are not compatible .

    Can't disable the Bluetooth.
