Samsung Galaxy Tab is 8.6mm, thinest tablet on the market. Ipad2 is 8.8mm.

So very kind of you mentioning ipad2 as the thinnest and Galaxy tab as "not as ugly as typical Android".

This pro apple pro american media bias makes mi sick...

I was really looking forward to this one...and am still impressed. I only wished there wasn't such a premium on it (and the keyboard dock).

Still a pretty amazing device, but I'll agree that it's missing some things.

I don't think $500 is unreasonable for the best non-apple tablet you can buy. Especially with 32GB of memory. I'll be buying. Wish I could buy it today!

If this thing is $500, ALL of the other current Android tablets are going to have to lower their prices by at least 20%. Who's going to buy a 16GB Galaxy Tab 10.1 for $500 if you can buy this for the same price, and this thing is better is EVERY aspect?

This looks real good. One big question though: battery life. They claim 12hours, but is that with or without the dock? Previous transformer was advertised as 14hours but that was WITH the dock. If 12hours is WITH the dock, then this is a step back. Battery life is a big selling point (for me at least).

Well, they promised the new transformer would actually have better battery life because the Kal-El chip has a 5th "secret" core to run the low demand operations. Of course, lots of people promise lots of things.

AAAAHHH Everything looks wonderful! That amethyst finish is absolutely gorgeous. My only qualms are only 1 gb of ram vs the 2 gb they originally spoke of, and that there's only one usb port on the keyboard. That's a pretty big letdown, considering that many users will want to connect a USB mouse in order to avoid the track pad whenever possible, then there won't be any slots for say, USB storage? At least two ports is a necessity, honestly. I know it was probably trimmed off to make the whole thing thinner, but the increased usability would have been worth the modicum of extra size and weight.

Still... I will be buying it. Now I just need to decide on 32 or 64 gb...

It looks like a great tablet, as far as tablets go. I'm glad they keep pushing the design, because when Windows 8 finally gets in the game, it will have some high standards to strive for.
