    Nice coverage. But what about the 14 inch Transformer Book?
    Will you be able to upgrade the Transformer to 8 GB Ram, at least through the dock?

    I hope they managed to fit a dedicated graphics card in the dock..
    There’s nothing in the dock, only a small battery and the 500gb HDD, so definitely some room for a GPU.

    Chippy, some sites are saying the dock is now bundled with the Vivo Tab RT, can you confirm this? And was there any word on this applying to the atom Vivo tab as well? Thanks. .

      It depends on the configuration. Regardless, if it comes with the dock it’ll be more expensive than without. Probably at least $100 more.

    $2000 for a transformer book? HAHAHAHA. I’ll take the 11in please, i5, for $799.

  • wakuwaku

    Most interested in the transformer book, 14 ich, hopefully with 8 Gb RAM, but It so desperately needs Wacom support!
