re:

Wow. Asus is really the best in terms of quality. That's why i only trust this product because it is really pretty good. I found some good articles about asus manual at pdfpal.org.

even though this is probably

even though this is probably a million times better than an ipad, the ipad will still probably sell much more than this, purely because the average dumbass doesnt know this exists.The ipad is just a big iphone except it serves no purpose in the real world at all, why buy an ipad when u can get this or a laptop, both of which will do much more than an ipad

no way

this is a joke right? it has to be...the i pad is a peice of junk.. why would you copy it?! and what kinda name is eee pad?

duh

Except this is way better than an iTampon because it can multitask.  And it can use flash because it isn't a giant iPhone because it runs a real OS.

no.... this is also

no.... this is also stupid... the whole concept of these pads is dumb... Either get a laptop... or a a phone... not some big slab that doesn't know what the hell it wants to be

Alot useful

Nah, eee Pad is alot more useful than iPhone OS based iPad... it can do a ton more computation with already good and established programs. Win7 makes this experience a whole different world... something that Apple can't compete with. I'm working in the public sector, and I can see a number of really good usages for the eee Pad, something that a cell phone cannot do, and a laptop is too huge for. It's 1/2 the price, can run Linux as well, and is versatile unlike Apple tied iPad running only Apple approved Apps. What it really needs is maybe a buildin ultra-slim dvd drive... multi-touch, WiFi/WiMax/BT (I'm sure some of those are probably there)... didn't see the details...  If this things goes Gold... it most likely would save a ton of trees by replacing paper almost completely in some industries.

Imagine the future

Forget what we have now. Imagine that the Pab has a realy good processor and a camera on the other side. Imagine a hospital ward were patient beds had a code bar. doctors would use their Pad to read the code bar and acess patient files. They could then modify such files on the fly. This could be usefull.
