    Just joined ...

    Hi all,

    Just joined the forums, I don`t actually have a tablet yet but have decided to sign up so that I can get as much info as possible before my inevitable purchase, looks like a nice friendly forum!. I will probably end up getting the TF201, so I`m shopping around @ the mo for good deals.

    all the best,

    Al

    Welcome. You will find a wealth of information around here. Also, since you are investigating. I believe the newest version of the Transformer is due out in April or May. Might be a good idea to check it out. Any ideas what you will be using it for?

    Thanks!

    Do you mean the Transformer Pad 300 or Infinity Series 700? If it`s the former I have been looking @ the 300 & thinking that it might be be a better & cheaper option for me & that the 700 will be a more expensive one! LOL

    I will be using it to replace my laptop when travelling etc.

    cheers,

    Al

    I was referring to the Infinity. One thing I would do is a lot of playing with stuff in the store to see if you will like the interface for replacing a tablet. Some have loved it as a replacement and some have hated it as a replacement. There are many things it will do better than a laptop and others that it will not do as well or at all. The thing I always think about when purchasing stuff like this is how long until I can afford a replacement and usually go for a higher end product as it will be supported longer and the technology will work better longer. But that's just me. What is it that you like about this series if you don't mind me asking?

    Hi bfmetcalf,

    Funnily enough I did that last week & got to try the TF201 for the first time & really liked it. I don`t think I can justify the price that they are guesstimating for the Infinity though. I realise what you are saying about replacing a laptop with a tablet & that it is limited to a certain extent, but these days I really don`t need all that a laptop has to offer.

    Thanks for your help ...

    Al
