    I don't think you'll be able to say C50's had x while C90's have y - without taking them apart and comparing them. This of course assumes you know how any differences affect the use of the device.
    I agree. It is just pure speculation...

I was really hoping that ASUS would be a good fit for me (Android fan) but I'm not seeing good things. I haven't even hopped over to the TF700 forums to see if things are any better there. Unfortunately that tablet is just out of my price range.
    It's an excellent tablet. The best one on the market right now in my opinion.

    If my old mind is still working I remember the numbering system used for the serial number is as follows.

    First letter is for the year of manufacture on mine B50 so the B=2011
    The second number is the month 50 = May

    So for a C90 it would equal 2012 September.

    Using this method you would be able to find the date of manufacture for the ASUS tablet line.

    Nice to know . Now if my old mind was working we would be using Roman Numerals.

    Ok. The Serial Number of the one I purchased (still unopened) starts w/ a C50. I went to Best Buy last night and the ones they had in stock were C90. Unfortunately, the one I have wasn't purchased from them. So if I keep mine it really comes down to the return policy of the store I purchased it at to determine if I should keep it. This would be Office Depot and here is their policy.

    "Technology and consumer electronic products may only be exchanged or returned with their Original Receipt and in their original, unopened packaging with UPC code within 14 days of purchase. If box is opened, only an exchange will be offered. A 15% Restocking Fee will be applied if any components are missing. Opened software may be exchanged for the same item only. Please remember to remove all personal data from exchanged/returned products. Office Depot is not responsible for any personal data left in or on an exchanged/returned product."

    So sadly, I have 14 days and that's it. That's really not enough time to burn it in to see if power/reboot problem rears its ugly head. If problem does occur I'm at the mercy of ASUS support.

    14 days should be enough time -- these issues you are concerned about occur almost imediately if the device has a defect out-of-the-box. I'm just using logic here.

    A lot of members report good service and a 10 day turnaround time for many repairs. Going by what I've read on this forum.

    I think you're worried about problems that happen to less than 5% of the members of this forum.
