I've used hybrids before, not all of them are created equal, but they've been getting better every generation. Nowadays most of them work great as a laptop and work well enough as a tablet too. They're the very definition of versatility... runs touch apps, runs real work software too.
The main issue has typically been pricing - but this has a pretty darn reasonable starting price. The second issue has been cooling, but the newer-gen devices have been using much more efficient CPUs. They also give you a choice between a smaller SSD and a larger mechanical drive. So yeah, this one looks like a decent unit for the money. Personally I'd like it better if they offered it with an A10-Micro but that doesn't seem likely.
