Most companies in the same market have a rep for poor customer service, that's possibly because they rely a lot on forums, rather than someone on the end of a phone.
That said, the one time that I did have to use support (for an ancient motherboard who's HSF clips had broken) it was okay. Asus do seem to be able to produce quite high quality gear though (big fan of Asus motherboards).

Even more expensive 13" laptop (Sony VAIO Z) weigh 1.1-1.2kg despite it has the Intel Core i7 processor.
It doesn't make sense to have a 1.5kg touchscreen-laptop that only has 10" screen and dual-core ARM processor, and running Android.
Yep, I make the total weight to be 1493g (=640g (dock) + 624 (Station) + 129 (phone)). That said, how many phone calls can you answer on that Vaio?
Joking aside - there's the point - what's the battery life like on that Vaio? I'd guess at something in the range 3-5 hours. Which is pretty poor compared to the Asus. As to dual-core, it's been reportedly widely that this really isn't a big deal for Android, since most of the apps are single-core anyway.
So sure if all
you want to do is run Office type apps then sure the Vaio's a "better" solution. On the other hand, as a "mobile office in one place" then I'll quietly argue that the Asus has it beaten solid.
