Its great to see full Windows 8 tablets with Wacom stylus for $299.
Samsung charge $400 for note 8.0 last year.

Do you have to keep you hand off the tablet when using the stylus?
IOW, if you're using the stylus and your hand touches the screen, does the tablet think your hand is inputting something?

As one who has had a number of Wacom tablets and currently has the Thinkpad Tablet 2 which sports a similar stylus, when the screen active digitizer detects the stylus, it turns off the capacitive digitizer so you don't get dual inputs and I suspect you would see this here as well.

According to ASUS press page, it says,
"Based on premium Wacom technology, the digitizer stylus affords the best possible accuracy, speed, responsiveness
and palm rejection"
