OK guys im on the fence. I'm a Big ASUS guy and im sitting in this dilemma. I'm looking at an ASUS Eee PC 1015PEM-MU17-BU or the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer.

Ok, i know i know. I hate Netbboks too, but i do have a spare Crucial 128GB SATA SSD, and i have a 2GB Stick of DDR3 for a laptop. I'll also be tearing out the factory wifi card for a Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300. SO other then the wifi card i have all the other fixings.

i'm looking at about a $100 difference between the tablet and the Netbook.

What am i going to use it for???? Well i have 3 of my own businesses; eBay, Computer Repair Service, as well as a Bulk vending business (candy, soda, chips, soda, condoms.... What every the site wants) and i'm interested in managing all of these on the road while im servicing what ever of the later two businesses.

So what direction do you believe i should go and WHY? m on the fence here, on one hand this is a sweet tablet , and for no additional cost i can turn this netbook into a fairly powerful device for it's size, and cost at this point because i have the other components lying around.

If you want to use the Transformer for business your going to need the keyboard dock which is another $150.

Why not just use that nice gaming laptop on the road ?

Since you already have a spare SSD laying around I would go with the netbook.

Get a simple business laptop.

Tablets are merely toys. Trust me, my family has an iPad and the Transformer. The transformer is a decent netbook with the keyboard, and the specs aren't far off an actual netbook, but you may still want MS Office or Libreoffice, so get the actual netbook with windows.

edit: Ok, I just opened Polaris office on the transformer (stock production suite), and it's not too bad. However, there is very limited space on the Transformer, you get 16 or 32GB, and also whatever micro SD card you have, or + full sized SD card + 2 USB sticks if you get the keyboard.

Well ive got to be honest you guys are going the direction i was hoping. Any way, i believe a route management application on android b/c i have an HTC EVO 4G, (Seriously considering upgrading to the Motorola Photon 4G when it is released later this summer) i have a copy of Documents 2 Go for android already that i use on my EVO. i don't think the lack of a KB would hinder me as my actual data entry will be relatively small:
Customer/Store Name
Manager/Contact Name
Address
Phone #
Stock (be it computers, or vending stock)
Past history comments

but once i enter it i believe there will be relatively minimal regular input.

I use to carry the Gaming laptop back and forth to work but the thing is so damn heavy. I've actually got to change of the Hdds, the SSd on file as the current is actually my spare, now i have an Intel 160gb SSD in it now.

It sounds like your trying to justify the tablet purchase, which is fine, but as others mentioned, tablets are not meant for business, as least not yet. Using the on screen keyboard there is a pretty significant lag on the Transformer. I can type at least 5x faster on a laptop keyboard.

Windows 7 is a major plus for using productivity programs like Word.

The one thing the Transformer has going for it is the battery life when connected to the dock..16 hrs.

You'd be more productive on a netbook I think. Tablets I find are more entertainment devices.

The lag exists even with the KB dock? I haven't read that yet. Well the opinions are definately leaning to the netbook, althought the votes are even. Tablet guys express your opinions . I was hoping to get recommendations for the tablet. Do you believe the iPad's have the support behind to function as a business/productivity device.

Part of my hoping was I could run the GPS on the tablet for route management to help me stream line the vending portion. The netbok as no GPS, and my evo gets quite hot running GPS, Google navagation, and LCD always on while charging. At times actually turns of the internal charger to keep its self from over heating.

I'm on the fence as well.....considering I can add in a bit more for a nice Thinkpad Edge with SB.....
but I really want the tablet as an entertainment and notetaking device as well

I have both an Asus Eee PC 1005HB (or is it HAB, i forget) netbook and the TF101 Transformer tablet + keyboard dock, and I have to say, both have their uses.

If it's going to be critical for you to manage your businesses with this device, a netbook (or honestly a general purpose laptop) would suit you far better.

The tablet + dock is nice from an entertainment standpoint and when you don't absolutely have to be productive - productivity with the dock/keyboard comes second with the Android OS/tablets in general.

Overall i am a believer in keeping work and play separate. I have a work laptop, a personal netbook, a personal tablet, gaming/home desktop and work desktop.

I think you should invest in a netbook/laptop if you want the most productivity - you know what you're getting with Windows and you'll never really have to worry about any programs/software you may need down the road.
