Thoughts on the Samsung ativ-q?

I recently built my own powerhouse desktop so I started the search for a really portable laptop(for a day of classes and such). Other than the obvious macbook air(with windows installed over the Mac OS), and the ativ 9 plus from Samsung this is the only option I've found that meets my main requirement (9+ hours of battery). I don't count traditional tablets because a decent sized keyboard is a must to me and I have a dislike for the crippled windows 8.1.

Anyone have thought on how this will turn out, or any other suggestions to look at?

Unfortunately, both the Samsung ATIV Q and the Asus version (I believe the Trio) will not be produced due to pressure form Google, Microsoft or any of the countless rumored resons (like patent problems). Its a shame too because the Q would have been my dream machine. In the meantime I ended up with the Sony VAIO Flip which is awesome except that it is not dual OS and it has a loud fan problem.

Aww really? Damn, I didn't read that anywhere.... I may resort to trying to get a test model now.

Yeah I wish this could of made it through. The ativ Tab 3 looks nice too. I might look into a larger tablet like this. Which patent issues were they having?

Yeah idea is great in my opinion, probably would be a decent game changer, something new and different. I would love one. But you know how it is with patent trolls these days :/

I did some googling and I could find anything specific. My guess is Microsoft got pissed at how easy it was to switch from windows to jellybean. Now it looks like the best deal is a macbook air...sigh I was really pulling for a decent ultrabook to come out:/. I like the zenbooks but two grand for a laptop if ridiculous.
