Eee Pad tablet transforms into laptop!

The tablet computers that compete with the iPad have mostly been uninspiring. The Eee Pad Transformer stands out with a design that isn't just copied from the iPad: It's a tablet that turns into a laptop.
For $399, $100 less than the cheapest iPad, you get a tablet computer with a 10-inch screen and hardware that doesn't cut corners. It's fully usable on its own. For another $149, you can buy a keyboard that connects to the tablet. Together, they look and open like a small laptop.
The Transformer is made by Asustek Computer Inc., the Taiwanese company that started the brief "netbook" craze a few years ago by selling small, inexpensive laptops. With the keyboard attached, the Transformer is nearly indistinguishable from a netbook.

Is this the I-Pad killer? I think this is a very smart concept but not sure it will catch on. Do you think it will?

  5. I doubt it will beat iPad, at least not by itself. Apple has a large core group of diehards who will be hard to convince to switch companies.

  9. I love ASUS and own a g73 and have been a big fan of them but idk about this one...Just because apple pretty much owns when it comes to things like this. But if I had 400$ to blow id probably buy one. I like the design and its versatility.
