    So I read that certain Gamestops will have the Transformer Prime for demo this weekend. Does anybody know which ones specifically? I would really love to check this out in person ASAP since I will be dropping $600 on it.

    I just got back from gamestop after seeing this tablet in person and playing with it for a few minutes and I gotta say it's awesome! Unfortunately they only had the amethyst grey on display but it looked sleek and sexy. I was actually surprised because the brushed aluminum back wasn't as much of a finger print magnet as I thought it would be, especially on the amethyst grey.

    Thanks for the tip on gamespot.

    I also went there this weekend to play with one. They had a prime, Acer a100 7inch and galaxy tab 10.1
    I will say the prime is going to really hurt the sales of the galaxy tab. Swiping through screens on the prime was much smoother. I have considered the galaxy tab due to the ability to connect to att lte directly. I do wish the prime had this option. The killer feature the galaxy tab lacks is the microsd card slot. And it only comes with 16gb memory for almost 500. If you add the lte option you are at 650. That's just a crazy price for a 16gb tablet.

    The prime was nice. Very nice. I was a little underwealmed because I have played with galaxy tab for so long that the prime just felt like the galaxy just with all the kinks worked out.

    Compared to my 1st Gen ipad this tablet is so much thinner and lighter.

    I finally stopped by a gamestop and checked out the Prime. It feels great and looks awesome. I'm not a fan of the purple now that I've seen it in person. Too purpley for me. Wonder how the Champagne will look in person...

    Champagne gold looks great. I hope to be picking up this color Monday morning.

    Very good sign that we might get them under the tree.
