Actually it is not a perfect fit. If the information is correct, parts of the LCD is not going to fit and you are going to miss about 35 pixels on each side of the LCD -- unreachable with the pen. 

Information I used:
LCD is : 12.1 inches 16:9 aspect ratio (HD resolution 1366x768).
Tablet is: 10 x 6.3 inches active area

The LCD should thus have a size of: 10.546 inches by 5.932 inches -- the .5 inch (~71 pixels) is the part that the tablet will miss horizontally.

There are ways to make the image on the lcd smaller (black bars) as a way to avoid this issue, but it is sometimes quite difficult to play with this and not always successful. For some, it was quite easy, for others it was hard. Playing with video drivers and special utilities on the host machine.

The biggest potential issue is always the same: jitter.  Will this tablet support having such a LCD sitting between the pen and the tablet?  From the small experience we have with non-wacoms, quite a few failed. But there more and more tablets out there that might just work. I do not recall someone using that one specifically. You're the "guinea pig". Smiley
