I bought the Toshiba Thrive because I wanted a full functionaing tablet and Im not a big fan of sacrificing ports for weight. Thin doesnt mean much to me when it doesnt do what I want it to when I want it to. Then I found out about the Asus Slider and it was like the Galaxy S release for Sprint. When the Epic 4G came out everyone complained about it having a keyboard, for me that was the number 1 selling point. With the Asus Slider its pretty much the same thing. Its a Transformer with a built in Keyboard. Its just the right size for what you will be using it for. Hell Im typing this from it right now.And screw those reviewers who say the keyboard is small, if youve ever typed on a net book you'll be fine. And as far as it not having a track ball or mouse.....ITS TOUCH SCREEN! Anyway, Ive been loving mine for the 24 hours Ive had it and would suggest anyone to buy it. Also anyone that knows how to root this thing let me know.
