This part of the eBay listing made me laugh, wonder who wrote it:

Country of Manufacture: Taiwan, Province of China

In other news.. good deal if you only want new. They had the UX31A for less than this, but refurbished and with Windows 7 instead and a 128GB SSD.

Personally, if you can wait 2-4 months to buy a laptop, you should absolutely wait. Rumor has it that Haswell based laptops will have TWICE the graphics power and nearly twice the battery life as these Ivy Bridge versions. Remember, Intel operates on Tick Tock, and Haswell is a Tock, meaning a major architectural change. So we could be seeing $600 thin laptops which are capable at processing but can last 8-9 hours easily.
