You can find the Thrive and Iconia A500 as examples for $300, so even less of a price difference, but all have much better display quality.
Heck, with the Transformer Prime coming out, a lot of current tabs will probably drop more in price.
Not sure how you tried one when you wrote this on the 9th? The Lapdock 500 went on sale for the first time anywhere 12/14/2011. And by the way, the Lapdock 500 sells for $249.97 once you sign into your verizon account and the quality of the display is also excellent on the 500....far superior IMO to the original lapdock and the Lapdock 100. Just wanted to clear up a couple misconceptions you may have put out there that influence people in the wrong direction.
