omg Actually I've been thinking about this type of device all the way. tablet + laptop rendezvous for Android + windows. The spec and reasonable price is also awesome. Good job Asus. I want it!

Just an idea it might not be possible but could you also install ubuntu on this and do a tri boot?

if windows cannot use the Atom or Android cannot use the i7 when wanted it's a complete waste...

even so, the separate operating systems in a device thing is a waste in itself. I hate needing to reboot.

Windows can run off atom, the i7 can run android x86 but thats a bit overkill you would get like 120k in antutu. I'm sure some of the geniuses over at XDA will get it running android on the i7 if the device is rootable.

your missing my point, yes Windows can run on atom, but will this machine be setup in a matter to allow such at will?

I like this idea. I hope that the specs and battery life are good enough to handle both Windows 8 and Android

I would so get this! Depends on the price though, but other than that, there is nothing that can match the way that tablet has been built :D
