If only the inside screen were a touchscreen as well....
Edit: Wait a minute....
"Both screens supports up to 10-finger touch gestures, such as tap, slide, drag, pinch-to-zoom and more. There is also an included stylus, which can be combined with the touch screen's 256 levels of pressure sensitivity for accurate handwriting simulation."
Did they change the inside screen to be a touchscreen as well as the screen on the outside, or is this a marketing error?
Edit 2: It's a marketing error. Only the outside screen is a touchscreen.
"Are both screens touch screens with multi-touch features, or only the outside screen? Feb 10, 2013
Staff: The manufacturer indicates that only one screen (the secondary) is a multi-touch capable touch screen. Feb 11, 2013"

The Tachi uses a SanDisk X100 mSATA SSD with a 500/420 MB/s sequential read/write speeds vs. the Surface Pro's Crucial mSATA rated 500/90MB/s read/write speeds. That's a BIG difference. The RAM is slower on the Tachi though at 1333MHz vs. 1600MHz .
I got the Pro and it's really great. Scrolling and resizing is smoother on the Surface Pro than it was on my TF700T (which I sold today) running Jelly Bean.
Not sure it's a fair comparison considering the surface pro costs twice as much and considering it has an i5 in it, it's essentially an upper midrange laptop. RT is however fair game since they essentially have the same cpu.
This ultrabook is about portability and a discrete gpu would sacrifice a lot of battery power and space. However the HD Graphics 4000 is actually a very capable performer. In the Ivy-bridge development, it was one of the factors that put it over the previous generation cpu.
The next generation cpu (haswell) will focus on energy consumption.
I would pick this over the macbook air for around the same price, although the MBP will have very different purposes. And after using a touchscreen Win8 ultrabook for a few months now I must say touch screen does make a huge difference.
Does both screeen mirror each other?
Can I watch corn annd the guy at the opposide of the train seat see all?
You can watch corn like a boss. You can watch it on both screens, or either screen individually.
I'm more excited about this than the Surface, lower price, more flexibility. They're kind of different audiences, but after using a Surface a bit it becomes awkwardly limited in that I normally use a laptop on my lap, or with the screen at various angles. I happen to have instances where being able to have a presentation screen on the other side of my screen would be helpful sometimes. The flip-screen ultrabooks seem like trouble waiting to happen, this seems like an elegant solution that increases flexibility.
