    Good deal. Touch screen + backlit keyboard for $700. If only they could have gotten a SSD and a 1080P screen in there. But I guess my standards are a bit high,

    Same here.
    I'm waiting for something with the following from ASUS or Levovo:

    13",14" or 15.6" 1080p IPS
    Backlit Keyboard
    Haswell CPU
    3-4 USB 3.0 ports
    DVD Drive for second HDD/SSD
    mSATA port if above not available

    Not too fussed about touchscreen or discrete gpu. But would love the leap motion device built in :D

    The Leap motion built in wont come for a while. With LCD panels getting thinner and thinner, it will be hard to integrate it straight in.

    Doubt it would have to be incorporated into the display. Do they even work like that?

    Will just get one separately for my desktop anyway. Seems like a brilliant little device :)
