Actually now both the 256GB and 512GB are coming at same price. Check the link I have given and select the 256GB model. You'll see the price is same as the 512GB model.

Using your link I see a price difference of $699 (Silver) vs $749(Gold).

Any inputs about Core M3 processor? How is it compared to i5 processor?

I got this after googling. Not sure how accurate is this info.

The Core m3-6Y30 (m3) is a lower-end processor which (supposedly, see my post on SP4 battery life benchmarks) offers better battery life by sacrificing computing power.

The Core i5 6300-U (i5) is a “jack of all trades”. It can do just about everything fairly well but isn’t (usually) the best at anything.

The Core i7 6650-U (i7) is the “Alpha Dog” of the group. It offers the most all-around power but comes with a hefty price tag.

I got the same feeling from my own research. Anyone who has actually used the processor got any comments?

Core M is a Fanless processor with TDP of 4.5W to 6.5W. In short burst, it performs similar to a Core i3-6100U but the performance will be reduced in long burst as it cannot maintain the higher Turbo Speed due to lower TDP. It is designed for mainly Fan-less and ultra thin Tablets. If you are looking for a Performance one, then don't buy it. It is okay for normal daily workload.

^If you can wait, I would wait for the Asus Transformer 3, though I do not know the pricing at the moment... That seems promising with thunderbolt 3 and 7th gen Intel processors.

All who purchased be prepared to play the LCD light bleed lottery. Over 2/3 of ASUS display panels tested possess varying degrees of extreme backlight bleed. It not a lack of quality control; they knowingly let them ship like that. Horrible company if you plan on working in low light conditions or watch media with a dark background or movies with the traditional black bars.

I'm surprised fine folks you would seemingly expect to expose this like Topolsky or even Mossberg (ethically good folk) have missed this complete fraud perpetrated by ASUS and to a lesser extent by Lenovo and Acer.

Apple routinely rejects tens of thousands of display panels annually that don't meet stringent quality standards. Every time I see that nitwit Jonney Shih introduce a new product and spout off "innovation without perfection isn't innovation;" it's just sad.

UX360-UA with up to i7 should be coming if need for high processing power and weight will still be kept below 3lbs.
I was considering Lenovo Yoga 900 but might wait for this as Yoga 900's screen scored quite low in comparison reviews.

Do you have any evidence for that bold claim? I've used several Asus PC's and screens and have yet to have an issue. Having owned an older Zenbook, I would highly recommend them. Great deal, especially if you can get the 512GB.
