I got mine via fedex about 2 hours ago. One came for the wife as well. This must be a bit different than what engadget reviewed, because I havent had any problems with it.
I havent played with the touch UI much that comes on whenever you flip the screen around, when I go to tablet mode and it comes up, I just minimize it and use it like a tablet. I dont need some pretty UI to dumb things down for me (I'd get a mac if I wanted that)
I installed the K-lite codec pack with media player classic and had no problems playing an episode of the pacific in 720 that I had downloaded. Sound isnt bad for a laptop.
The bad screen viewing angle the the review was talking about is only an issue for me when the screen flips into portrait mode.
The only thing I dont like about this thing is the lack of card reader. In every other way, it is lightyears ahead of my wifes old netbook. We both love our new Duo's
Anybody have any questions about it? I have no idea how to do a review of something...

Forgot to add that the screen stays touch receptive while its in laptop mode. I find that pretty cool.
Its useful for when you need to move a window and hate using the touchpad as much as I do
