Looking pretty good. And adding in a keyboard that none of the other pads had so far was definitely a good addition. Instead of having to hold on to it, you can enjoy its features as you would a laptop or a netbook, and with decent speed. I would definitely pick the Eee Pad Slider over others such as the ipad and the hp pads. But out of curiosity, how much would this thing cost?

It's going for $479 for the 16gb model. I agree with you about the keyboard @blah310, but I'd rather have the Asus transformer so I have the option to remove the keyboard. I also like the transformer better because the keyboard attachment extends the battery life. Asus is really making some good tablets, I can't wait for the next gen to see what they come up with.

Ok, this has to be one of the coolest looking tablets ive ever seen. So far ASUS has gotten my vote for the most practical and useful tablets. Cant wait to see some Kal-El tablets from ASUS next year. Oh and cant wait for the review either!

I very much like the addition of the keyboard. It is certainly a set up from other pads.
