WARNING!!! is this 32bit windows or 64bit windows?
if it is 32 bit windows, DONT BUY.

due to a bug in microsoft windows InstantGo, the first batch of machines came with a 32 bit UEFI firmware although they have 64 bit processors. this means that they cant boot any 64 bit operating system.

and more importantly, they can't boot ANY LINUX. it is not planned to support them either. and the manufacturers aren't going to output a bios update, even though there is a public petition:

It's a good price - but a big WTF on the marketing .. An ultrabook? "Designed to compete with the MacBook Air"? ....

Can Windows 8 really be ran with those specs, or is it being shipped with a somewhat stripped down version of windows 8 like they did with 7 starter.

What is the correct term? 2-in-1? Convertible? Hybrid? Docking Tablet?

It's a 2-in-1, just like all the other competitors in this category. Show me another 2-in-1 from another brand that is marketed as a ultrabook. Much less designed to compete with the MacBook Air!

If you watch this video on the XA, it appears to be full 8.1 and running OK

Runs fine for web browsing, video playback and office documents.
It comes with regular windows 8.1 expect bing is set as the default search engine which can be changed.
Posting from an asus x205 with the same specs.

Yes. I have a tablet with a similar CPU that I installed Windows 8.1 Pro...
