Agreed, pricing looks good vs iPad. Looks like the 10" w/o dock is $400. I'm looking forward to the $500 slider with Wifi.

Where are you getting no Wifi? That would be incredibly dumb. As for the $1000, it's got some pretty insane hardware to deserve that price.

Wlan 802.11 is Wi-Fi.

My bad, what I meant was Wireless. If it were 4G capable, then it would be worth it.
Will edit previous post.

And insane hardware or not, its just not worth that much. Not up against the iPad that has wireless.

So? It's a Windows machine. You can have a 3g or 4g USB dongle to make up for it.

And. Here's what I think of your iPad.

None of these will even make a dent. What's next on the chopping block?

Yes they did. One of the first to use the Atom processors delivering low cost, reliable, and very decent netbooks.

Okay? This isn't the netbook market...it's the tablet market and we all know who's pushing it. Here's a hint: It starts with A but it's not Asus.

These look pretty cool, and hopefully they are usable for regular tasks. I sure hope they stick to standard screen sizes - like 10" or 12" (or even 7" for ultraportable) - I hate crummy fractional sizes. It's like ooops, we were too cheap to give you the extra .3 inches of glass so you can have a real sized screen - so we will call it 10" but it is some oddball, nonstandard 9.7" garbage with odd screen resolution settings...
