Only $20 more for the 32 gig model. Nice.

Not to mention, you can insert a microSD. This just perfect for watching Full HD movies!

If by "Full HD" you mean 1080p, then no, you can't. The TF300 only has 720p resolution. The Transformer Pad Infinity is the one with the 1080p screen, and I'd much rather take that tablet over this one.

Yes it is 1080p. Go on Asus's website.

"Display 10.1" WXGA (1280 × 800) LED Backlight 178° wide viewing angle IPS panel,
10 finger multi-touch"

1280 x 800 is 720p. 720p is normally 1280 x 720, but there's 80 extra pixels to make up the black Android ICS toolbar at the bottom.

The Transformer Infinity, meanwhile, is 1920 x 1200. Again, it would normally be 1920 x 1080, but there's an extra 120 pixels at the bottom for the Android toolbar.

Only $20 of difference, do they really want to sell the 16gb model?

i like that its only a $20 difference. hopefully everyone just buys the 32 gig and then the 16 goes on sale to 299 or less :)

Thats exactly what they want, they may make $20 more from you only but when a lot of people pay that extra $20 for a 32GB it'll make a difference in their profits.

its got removable memory right? What Id love is the 16 gig bundled with the keyboard for sub 400. That would just about make me flip open my wallet. Prices need to just keep on coming down. yeeaper!

That’s more like it. A transformer pad that’s actually affordable. Especially the 32GB version. You're not exactly gonna find a cheaper quad-core tablet with 32GB of storage anytime soon lol.
