A great 'All-In-One' Andriod that's lots of fun and maybe the best out there?

Summary: Looking at the numerous reviews on this item it is hard to add anything at all technically. Many of the reviews are clearly written by people with a lot of experience and expertise. If you have a high level of expertise then their reviews will be of more value to you than mine. I work on a computer in a design office environment all day every day. At home I have a desktop and a laptop.
Summary: I picked up this Asus Tranformer from Comet a few days ago and I've had a hard time putting it down! :) For a long time I was searching for a laptop that would replace my ageing monster tower PC at home. I looked at the Alienware and XPS series which were great but in the end I saved money by upgrading my tower's graphics and hard disk (SSD).... ...but I digress :) I still required a mobile PC solution! So I turned my attention to the many tablets on offer.
Summary: I have spent the past month/two months looking around for a tablet. I needed something that was light with a decent screen that I would be able to type on for when I start uni in September. I decided straight away that I wasnt interested in an ipad (just personal preference) and I was looking at ones that have come from China , but some of them had bad reviews which put me off, I then decided to look at what is available on the high street and from then cut the list down...
Summary: This is a great device. Everything has been just as good as I hoped and expected. Bought the pad without the keyboard and really haven't felt a need to buy it. This is just a great device for web surfing and simple things as video playback. Wouldn't count on it as the only pc for the household thou.
Summary: Well, maybe that's overstating things. It can't slide up bannisters or pull standard lamps out of carpet bags, but it's an impressive piece of technology for a fair bit less than its Apple-y counterpart. It's hugely better than the Acer Iconia A500, which froze solid within minutes of booting up and went back to the suppliers post haste.
Summary: I have had my eee pad Transformer now for 3 weeks. Even now I am discovering new things it can do. I have never had an iPad but at least one iPad owner has looked at my Transformer with some envy. But I get ahead of myself. The box arrived (smaller than I expected) with the device and a charger plus magic cable and a couple of very slim instruction leaflets. There is no protective sleeve or case at all and this is the first extra you need to buy.
Summary: I've been using the tablet and keyboard for a couple of weeks now and my experience so far has been excellent. The screen is clear and sharp and the touch navigation works very well. It's a pleasure to use the Honeycomb 3.1 operating system. Having read some of the negative comments in the previous reviews I struggle to understand some of the remarks, ie: - At first I didn't understand how to dock the screen into the keyboard, but once I figured it out it's 100%...
Summary: We had an Acer ultra-portable laptop mainly for watching movies on planes and on holiday apartment TVs. It was 13.3" but we found it too big and awkward on planes (particularly with Ryanair type space) so we decided to sell it and get a tablet for the same purpose. I pondered the decision for months, considering the options for size, type, make, model etc and just got more confused. I eventually went for the 10" Asus Eeepad Transformer (without the optional keyboard).
Excerpt: "...Android does it well. The Asus screen compliments it nicely, shiny and sleek, just like you’d expect (though this is a minor complaint when I was out in the sun with it, but that’s a story for later). As you’d expect, just like on Android phones, there are several windows which you can flick between and add apps to. The interface is smooth and works perfectly to the touch. Later, when I got the thing home and began setting it up, I was pleasantly ...
Pros: long battery life, keyboard and touchscreen, fast, intuitive, android, quick buttons
Summary: I looked into the tablet market extensively. I first bought an Archos 101 as I wasn't sure if I would use a tablet and didn't want to spend too much. The Archos was OK (3 stars) but I did use it a lot. So I looked at the market again and wanted a Honeycomb machine and really there are 4 available, the Asus, Xoom, Galaxy 10.1 and Iconia. Having read many reviews I decided on the Asus and it quite brilliant. There is a lot said about weight and thickness.
