iPad1/2 play high profile, but the Tegra 2 plays higher bit rate. With such small/unpowerful chips, its all about the instruction set and the Tegra 2 for some reason doesn't have it, my Droid X however does.
The NEON instruction set?
I've seen a reply on XDA where a user stated he could watch a certain video type on his atrix but not his transformer

Anyway......i guess I'll just jump on this as soon as I find stock somewhere.....

Tablets are useless. Keyboard is a must for work, so a laptop is still best choice for traveling professional. If you want to browse web on the go simply do it on your phone, cos you carry it with you anyway, having to carry around a huge device like tablet sucks.

Your opinion is very informative, then again, seeing your sig rig and running a Q6600 with 480 SLI with surround...I digress.

A lot of people obviously don't feel the same, considering the tremendously large backorder the Transformer is at right now - even with its limited initial supply, it'll take WEEKS before the demand is even met from the initial launch.

There are many, many uses for a tablet, too much to even get into every single one at the moment.

Plus, part of the appeal of the Transformer is its optional lightweight dock/keyboard, which gives you the full functionality of a laptop + extending the battery life to almost 16 hours. Not really sure where you're going with such a blanket statement, the total weight of this tablet + dock would be around 3.5 pounds, probably still less than a laptop that a "traveling professional" would lug around anyway...

again it depends on what your using it for.....
have you ever used a tablet on the sofa at home or in bed watching a movie or just simply chillin and browsing the web while not at your desktop or having a laptop burn your lap?

I can tell you its definitely a different experience that varies for different people....and it works for me
especially the dock

This. Not to mention I would much rather surf the web with a 10in screen instead of a 4in. I really wish people would realize the convenience factor involved with tablets and actually use one before they start bashing them. I always thought they were a dumb idea myself until I used my friends Galaxy Tab and now I want one.

Agreed
I thought tablets were just a fancy toy that I would never end up using till I borrowed my dads friends ipad to use on the couch while watching a movie

I just ordered the Transformer TF101-B1 32GB. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834230019 from NewEgg for $499.99. I wanted the 16GB. version but they don't have it. Now I gotta cancel my MicroCenter pre-order. http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0361289

I just checked NewEgg and they've already sold out. I hope some of you, my fellow Forumites, got lucky and bought one of these.
If you did, please leave your review or just your thoughts about your new Tablet at the following thread: http://www.overclock.net/tablet-comp...er-review.html
Good luck with your new Tablet!

Available from Best Buy?

I honestly don't think you need 32 GB, and those aren't really selling that well, anyway. I'm sure there are other places that have stock.
