any help woul dbe appreciated - I miss the ipad but didn't give me what I needed.

I had numerous problems with my first Gen transformer tab tf 101 screen. It flickered alot , clarity was sub-par, and it finally ended up randomly shutting off the back light, needing to be turned off and on again to come alive. Needless to say, I did some research and there are many sites talking about screen issues with this tf300 model as well.

HP's ePrint is pretty sweet and you can print from mobile devices. The new HP 6700 Premium was at costco for about $100 and works so nice.

Can you add an SD memory card for more storage to this thing? Maybe I missed that somewhere. Thanks.

Looks like it's $449.98 if you want it with the docking station combo.

I am looking for a laptop/computer/tablet for my 6 grader as a worktool for school work. I think it should be small and portable, powerfull enough to serve for a few years to come to do typing, powerpoint presentation and such learning related activities. I do not care, if it does any gaming or so (actually, better if not).
Would this be a good buy, can it store and print just like a regular computer? (now you can tell, I don't know anything about this stuff). I like the price, since I have to buy 2.
Thanks a lot to everybody.



I think this would be a pretty good solution in terms of portability and functionality. Google Docs, or here is a list of other apps that are office compatible that include word, spread sheet and powerpoint functionality: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cn.wps.moffice_eng&feature=more_from_developer#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEwMiwiY24ud3BzLm1vZmZpY2VfZW5nIl0.

This is what you would use for a printing solution:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pauloslf.cloudprint&hl=en

This will definitely game- but everyone needs a break from schoolwork, and many learning games are available that are actually fun to play. My son like this game that is based on building a bridge using a budget (so you only get so many pieces to work with) and then testing the bridge to see if can support a car and truck.

You would be surprised how many games actually use critical thinking processes- they are not all bad.
This tablet is also a great multimedia solution. With the use of a free app called mxvideo you can play any video file you want without transcoding- (IPAD can't do this)

Best of all- you don't need Itunes! Just a simple drag and drop from your computer. But if for some reason you have that Itunes library you just can't part with... there is double twist https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.doubleTwist.androidPlayer

You will love this device.

Can the keyboard and tablet fold into each other like a normal laptop or does the keyboard only act as a dock? For travelling purposes it would be great if they fold up into each other.

Asus has been really strange with it's updates. The TF300 has been getting updates BEFORE the top of the line TF700 (Infinity) which is really pissing off us TF700 owners. the TF300 had JB about a month before the TF700. I seriously thought about this tablet before they announced the TF700. It's a great performer, I just wish the keyboard was interchangeable between the 300 and 700 as I'd buy this an give to my wife so we can share the dock, but no such luck.

I so want this but I still have a very functional gTablet and a case with a built-in, USB keyboard. How I wish my baby would get a hold of the gTablet and break it so I would have an excuse to replace it with an Asus. Alas, the gTablet is a bit too heavy for a 7 month old baby. Heck, it's too heavy for most 30 year olds too!

Not quite, while Asus manufacturers the N7, the N10 is manufactured by Samsung.

New question - but probably not...
I have not used Andriod or any tablet, so I wonder about file transfers. I have large video files (4G) I create while travelling. I want to transfer the files from the SD card (using keyboard dock port) to a portable USB hard drive. I do want another serving to store files on tablet, just use it for the transfer.
Seems like this would work, but I would appreciate any comments from the Woot crowd. Right now I am dragging a laptop around to do the job..

I literally ordered a Galaxy 2 10.1 from Amazon just yesterday. It is to replace my wife's three-year-old netbook that is in its final days. I had ruled out the Transformer series mostly due to cost. The keyboards alone run $150 (but do provide battery and storage options unlike 3rd party bluetooth). Thanks, Woot for offering exactly what she/we really wanted. And thanks, Amazon, for having a solid return policy.

Your example at NewEgg is for the tablet only. That makes NewEgg .04 more on product and .99 more on shipping for a total of $1.03 over the lower example I already had posted for the tablet only from B&H as found here,
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=852329&Q=&is=REG&A=details

The obvious would be the savings I found on the Woot offer compared to B&H would be even wider (but only by a thin amount)between Woot and NewEgg with Woot again being the lowest price.

That, I'm not sure about. I assume you can sign into the Email app with your AOL credentials, but I've personally never done this (don't have an AOL account). In any case, if you use Exchange, etc, on your PC, you should be able to sign-in the same way on Android.

If you use a web interface, it should also work pretty much the same (attachments included).

NOTE: There are a ton of reports that these units have screens that CRACK very easily (which is probably due to too much flex in the device itself and over time screen weakens).

Asus makes the Nexus 7 - $199 and up

Samsung makes the Nexus 10 - $399 and up

I have both and they are both really good for their respective sizes.

I would say this seems like a pretty good deal because the keyboard dock is included

Refurbished + Warranty
As new in box product would include warranty I am adding Square Trade warranty to today's offer for a total price picture of product including warranty.
$299.99 + $5 + $54.99 = $359.98

New in Box
Checking for every day pricing of product I used two dealers known to be above board sellers with every day good pricing.

B&H PHOTO VIDEO = $349.95 + free shipping (TF300T) http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=852329&Q=&is=REG&A=details and $99.95 + free shipping (dock) http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/852331-REG/ASUS_TF300_DOCK_BL_Docking_Station_for_Transformer.html
Total for all new at B&H = $449.94

AMAZON = $376.99 + free shipping (TF300T) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007P4YAPK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&smid=A17MC6HOH9AVE6
and $108.86 + free shipping (dock) http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-Transformer-Mobile-Dock-TF300T/dp/B007SHJIP6/ref=pd_bxgy_pc_img_y Total for all new at Amazon = $485.85.

I am sure if you go looking across the web you may find different new in box pricing from what I have above but both of the sellers I have used often prices below others so I felt they were two good pricing competitors to use. So, what does the math say? Amazon total was $39.91 more that B&H so I'll use the better B&H price to compare. New in Box at B&H is going to cost you $89.96 more if you compare to the Woot price including the ST warranty. Without warranty you save, $144.95. I think the fairest comparison is when you include warranty as the new product comes with one but, you do save a good chunk if you go without. But the bottom line is, Does a discount of $89.96 warrant buying a refurbished model over a new one? For me, no I would go with new. But saving $144.95, that I would have to really consider. In any event, it seems the woot offer today is not only competitive but a very good discounted price.



Best Buy Black Friday has this tablet for $279, and the keyboard dock for $99. So for about $80 you can get new vs. refurbished. I've never bought anything refurbished before. I was planning on buying this at BB for a Christmas gift, but maybe this is a better deal? Can anyone tell me if it's worth it to fight the crowds on Black Friday to get a new one?

You can plug in a USB device such as a portable hard drive or a USB drive into the USB slot on the keyboard dock. Or, if you prefer, you can get a special adapter that will convert the Asus proprietary connector on the bottom of the tablet into a USB port. The adapter is not necessary and would cost you about $20 because you have the USB port on the keyboard.

So once you connect the USB drive or portable hard drive, you will see that in a file manager program (easy to download any number of them from the play store for free). You can then move or copy your files from the internal memory, the MicroSD card in the tablet, or the SD Card in the keyboard to the portable hard drive.

16GB is the internal hard drive. Not removable, not upgradable. You CAN, however, upgrade the device memory with a microSD in the tablet, and/or an SD and USB drive in the dock

The 16gb is built in "internal" storage. You can add "external" storage with a micro sd card in the tablet and a regular size sd card in he dock. Asus uses the "internal" and "external" terms for the two types of storage in the device.
