Price...

From what I've read, its sounds to me like the quad core is an A6-1450 Temash. An alternative to this would be the Acer V5-122P, which I played with for about a week. Very nice 11.6" IPS panel, same resolution, 500gb 5400rpm HDD instead of SSD, and obviously no Galaxy integration, but you can find a V5-122P for $430 with the same processor. Now don't get me wrong, the A6-1450 is an excellent processor, I just don't know if OEMs are pricing these devices competitively enough for it to compete where AMD meant for it to compete, with Atoms and ULV Celerons. Even the V5-122P is overpriced in my opinion. That being said, if I had $800 to blow, I would buy this in a heartbeat to play with my Galaxy S4.
