This is actually a really good idea. It gives the agility of a laptop when needed but the portability of a tablet when needed. Other tablets did this but it's the battery like that I'm like "fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff" at. I think I might get this. Like really I have clue why no one thought of having the keyboard extend the battery life sooner.

Like the people before me have been saying: That's a really great idea! I've been waiting to see which tablet I will buy until more options were on the market, but I had been leaning towards the XOOM. This seems like a XOOM with even more functionality, however, and would be a great alternative to replacing my dying laptop. I am really thinking about getting this! Great job, Asus!!!

this is a great idea, but they should put a hard disk in the keyboard part and than i would consider this over a laptop
