I recently went on an electronics buying spree. First I bought Nexus 7 16gb from Google for $250. I also bought a HP G6 windows 7 and a G7 windows 8. No complaints on the nexus 7 . I could tether it to my Virgin Triumph and most small data apps would work. Then I dropped it and cracked the screen and went back to the google store and saw thy had a 32gb/4g model for $299. I jumped on it. If you really want a go anywhere device that is small enough to fit in a pocket, there is nothing else out there IMHO. I can even video conference while driving. Amazing. The future is here for $300 & $30 a month. As long as you are not watching movies all day, you'll barely break a gig. Also someone earlier mentioned something about storage on the Nexus 7. You can get a OTG doggle that converts the micro usb to a full sized usb and connect a card reader, keyboard and mouse to it using a usb hub, So storage is essentially unlimited. After almost three months with the G7/Win8 box, I realized what a POS Win8 turned out to be. After begging MS and HP for a downgrade to Win7 to no avail, I called BestBuy, reminded them how much I spent there in the last 6 months, and the MGR. agreed to an in store credit. So my buddy is hot for the Asus and I went with his advice and bought the TF700 and the keyboard for $600. They didn't have any of the older Asus models in stock (the TF200 can upgrade to Jelly Bean, and they had the TF 300's on imaginary blowout sale for $280, but none in stock. They had the Note 10.1, and it looked like a nice unit. But I worried about losing the stylus or scratching the screen. I did like the bigger speakers. Also I considered the costs of the periferals like a keyboard and a case and thought I would be somewhere around $700+ land. I never wanted to spend $600 on a tablet but here I was with a $450 store credit I had to use now. And after my Win8 experience, Windows is dead to me. Only a masochist could love that OS. So here's some points on the TF700 which probably applies to most of the TF series. First, you really need to buy the keyboard. extra battery, full size sd card slot and full size usb port. The tablet itself only has a micro sd card slot. There is no micro usb port on the tablet itself. It does have a proprietary cable you can use to connect to another computer and charge, but no way to plug in external storage like a card reader or external hard drive. Also, the keyboard protects the screen so you really do not need an everyday use case. With the usb port you essentially have unlimited data storage. It essentially turns your tablet into a micro notebook. Never go anywhere without the OEM plug in charger. Most generic USB chargers and computers will not have enough oumph to power it up. I think the TF is a little smaller than the Note too. since they will upgrade to Jellybean, if you can find a TF200 or TF 300 for about $300 and then get the keyboard for $100, you can't really go wrong I think you can't go wrong with either the TF line or the new 10.1 Samsung. Here end'th the lesson.
