Default Who is getting the Asus EEE Transformer?

I just cleared up some cash selling my rooted nook color and dsi, to get this one as soon as it hits the market tomorrow. The specs look great, reviews are good and its damn affordable for a Honeycomb tablet without a data plan. I might have to stay awake tonight, since it seems to have sold out pretty quickly at the 1-2 places it was available for preorder.

Never heard of it but after doing some research it looks like a great product. Might have to go your route and sell my Nook Color.

this thing is so awesome. Been playing with it for the last 2 days. I am glad I got it when I did. The honeycomb OS is pretty good and I am really digging the speed and responsiveness of the UI. Not to mention the mycloud apps from Asus. Flash support exists and works great, so take that Ipad-suckers...lol

So far only a few FCs with non-HC optimized apps. HD video playback is a big iffy and the default browser lags sometimes.

And I managed to order the keyboard dock yesterday, waiting for it to get here friday.

Where did you get it from? I'm getting another tablet, because my wife wants mine.

Availability is a problem right now. They now have a tacker

http://www.nowinstock.net/computers/tablets/asus/

I got mine last week when newegg had it in stock for like 10 mins. Newegg seems to be getting some every other day.
