That's a pretty good price if it really sells for that.
Just a general question, when something says it's ultra thin, doesn't
it scream out, we skimped on cooling and battery size? Or perhaps, we
turned down the power so far, it needs neither.  I'd rather have
something a bit thicker with proper cooling and a hefty battery. Once
it doesn't fit in my pocket, the next size limitation is a backpack.
Or, maybe they are trying to appeal to the briefcase carrier. This
Asus device does have a nice battery sticking out the bottom, so it's
heading in the right direction.
