I've shared this one before 2 months ago and it received nice feedback when it was selling at 299. Now it's retailing at 269! That's a nice incentive for those who are looking to get a nice full fledge touchscreen laptop with a small form factor.

I tried a dual core Celeron device of similar spec the other day and to be honest it was horribly slow and unresponsive, the touchscreen was pointless due to this. For full Win8 I still think you need something more high end. This is the whole point of Win RT, an operating system which is capable of the main Win 8 features a home user will be interested in using but can run very fast on lower end devices.

I'm not sure which device did you try, but I bought this for my wife and it responds remarkably well. As a matter of fact, since it is based on the Sandy Bridge processor it handles multi tasking with no lag whatsoever. The touch screen is quite handy even if it takes a bit of time to get used to. You can give it a try @ PCWorld since they have them on display.
