You both have valid points depending on which TF you compare it to. As Lee is following the comments in the thread about the TF 201 yes it is $100 cheaper and for good reason as there are quite a few differences in the 2 units and the 2 that stick out most to me being the camera flash and the screen brightness. As an iPad owner the iPad can be relatevely useless outside on a sunny day but not so the TF 201 so this is a huge cut in my opinion.
Now Anomaly has a good point for anyone who may be looking at a new tablet in that there is really no reason to settle for a TF 101 when you can get a TF 300 for the same price with a lot more features. But I think the TF 300 is supposed to replace the Tf 101 by design anyways.
