I think the build quality is very nice, the battery life, realistically 2.5-6 hours is reasonable for constant use, most tablets with a decent size screen and good processing power fall within the same range for constant use... its pretty much a balance between making it wiiU massive and giving it reasonable battery life, most people will be using the portability for a bus ride to and from work and charging it every day, not a gaming marathon.
I think this one will be a HIT, it has to be, Nintendo and Nvidia basically gave this everything they've got, they're both in trouble if this isn't huge, the basically scripted a brand new OS around the hardware so its a lot more efficient and better performance than android boxes with the same hardware.
We'll see how things shake out, i am a little put off by the pricing, everything seems about 15-20% too high, controllers, accessories, games, etc... but maybe they'll realize that and reduce some stuff sooner than normal.
