    Such a colossal failure on MS's part that a device like this seemingly tailor-made to work with the concept of what was supposed to make Windows RT great will not include RT.

    Nor should it. Hence, the failure on MS's part.

    Transformer Book Trio. Heh. Except, it's bigger and doesn't have the 2560x1600 display. :-( Reply

    Will the TF701T work with the old TF700T keyboard? Reply

    This thing runs at 4W? Damn, that seems awful high...
    Too bad they went with nvidia. This would've been nice with snapdragon 800.

    Tux roller Aka Troller. The snaps inferior in nearly everyway, and no idle core. Reply

    Yeah, Tegra 4 is Nvidia's first dual channel SOC. 64bit x 1600mhz (800mhz DDR) DDR3 i believe. With the decent fill rate of the T4 it will probably be the first Nvidia SOC without underpowered graphics. Oh the irony. Reply

    I still don't think the TF form factor is anywhere near ideal... And I used AND enjoyed the OG TF until recently (swapped for a new Nexus 7, gave the TF to my father and the keyboard to my mother who also has a TF). It's nice in a pinch for writing emails or basic tasks, but performance and battery life weren't really the main issue to begin with. Android just isn't meant for a laptop-like form factor, reaching across the keyboard (or using the tiny touchpad) will never be natural, and the ecosystem just isn't there for something like this. Maybe if Google gave up on Chrome OS this might gain some traction... Reply

    I disagree, I think the TF series has more potential if Chrome OS and Android were more unified. I enjoy the TF700t as a tablet, but what hinders the "laptop" experience for me is the lack of floating browsers... which Chrome has.

    If they could unifiy the platforms and allow users to choose the interface, then the Transformer would be even better when docked. Floating browsers/windows help a lot with producitivity/multitasking. For example, just being able to watch a video and take notes or chat while doing so with that nice little keyboard they give you...would make it that much more useable.

    It's actually hard to say, the Extreme 45mbs eMMcs come in 32gb, 64gb, and 128gb. The 32 and 64 are possible for the slower also. So the question lies in, did they not have the 128gb for a reason or just 2 much space, perhaps saved for the T5, or did they not make the leap for a higher capability eMMc. I looked and can't find a specification, I almost feel like it's not upgraded, I'd think they'd capitalize on bragging rights. But the microSD is SDXC(extreme/pro speed capable), they need to come out with a readyboost program for andriod. Reply

    I take that Back, their reference tablets back in Feb sported the 45mb iNand Extreme eMMcs. So it's likely a good eMMc, I guess we'll know in a week when someone benches a consumer model. Reply

    As long as they used the eMMcs they used in their reference tablets it's a solid device, 'best in class' ATM Reply
