    Sure hope you get it. I've got a "trust" problem with eBay.

    Why would you pay $960 for that when you can get this for only $40 more with far superior specs?

    Because I want a Champagne Gold 64 GB Asus Transformer Prime Tablet with Docking Station with 18 Hours of Battery Power, USB Port, SD Card Slot, HDMI Out and Great Screen Resolution and I have the money and don't want to wait until March to get it so I Bit the Bullet.

    It's also smaller and lighter and thinner.

    Well, I just Received the Champagne Gold 64 GB Asus Transformer Prime Tablet and I am Fully Charging it per Instructions from HDTVFAN0001 before I use it.

    Can't believe I have it but I am really Happy about having it for it's Size, Screen Resolution, Battery Life, HDMI Out, USB Port, SD Card Port, etc. plus it's Light Weight.

    Wow, even though I Paid a Premium to get it but I am Happy that I have it now and not in March. :hurah: :hurah: :hurah:

    On a side note here, I went back home today to help plan a reunion for my high school class and decided to stop by the parents place for a bit. They ended up getting me to set up their new iPad....

    let me just say i dislike that OS even more after this experience. I get that they are trying to make the OS much easier and simplier for people to get it done but what i walked into there was a complete disaster. lol
    Ended up having to just reset the device and start from scratch. haha

    Even after getting the thing set up and messing around with it for a little bit i was still left wanting much much more as the user customization just wasn't there for me to be honest...

    now that i think about it i totally forgot to download the DIRECTV app lol. there thats the big advantage ill give it, along with i guess making it easy to set up syncing with the cloud and ability to restore the complete OS from there if something goes wrong.

    I just missed widgets and having all apps in a pull down instead of having them on the pages or in folders....

    Yes, Sarge, The IPAD is for people who are Not Technically Inclined or Savvy and the Rest is for us who are Technically Inclined and Savvy and want Customization and Not just Dictated to by Mr. Jobs and His Envision of How I Want To Use My PC!!! :D

    I’m glad to hear that you like it so much, it’s making me quiver in anticipation for when mine arrives. (I won the contest at the NVIDIA booth).

    Definitely true.

    That said, some of the most technical people I know chose iPads as well, so go figure! :p

    I Am Not An Apple Basher so whatever suits you is the Way You Should Go!!!

    I just wanted a USB Port along with an SD Card Input Port and HDMI Out along with a Long Battery Life (my 14" PC has a battery life of about 3 hours) and I wanted a Light Weight Device and with 18 Hours of Battery Life by connecting the Docking Station I Am In Heaven!!! :hurah:

    Wasn't saying you were, Rich! Just pointing out deciding which way to go is not quite a black and white decision. :)

    Got disagree with you there. I have an iPhone and an iPad and consider myself very technically inclined. While Android is an impressive OS and there is the capability of more customization, it doesn't do easily what I need. I use Outlook for my calendar and contacts. There is no simple way to sync Outlook with Android if you don't want to use the Google Cloud. Plus, even with using the Google Cloud, syncing with Outlook can be a pain.

    With the iPhone and iPad, it syncs with no additional software (save for iTunes, which I already have and use). While I wouldn't mind having a little more ability to customize some things, I can live with a few shortcomings. Plus, the fact that I can carry around one device for all my needs, to include my music, which can be easily docked in my car with the iPod hookup is extremely convenient.
