    I was looking on the Best Buy website saw this tablet for $399, $100 cheaper than the PlayBook which I was planning on buying. I have a few questions:


    1. To use this tablet do you need to hook it up to a computer to use the full experience? Why exactly is it called 'transformer' ?

    2. How does this compare to the Xoom and Galaxy Tab?

    3. To people who own it, any complaints? Is it fast?

    Thanks.

    Go read some reviews. ;)

    1- It's called "transformer" because with the keyboard it "transforms" from a tablet into an Android Netbook. At this point you'd have to "root" and spend hours getting Linux working to be able to use DVDs, CDs, etc... I use it as a portable device when I'm away from home- for movies, games, taking notes, doing LIGHT work, checking email, etc... I still keep a regular laptop, since you really can't do EVERYTHING on the Transformer.

    2- read the reviews and specs. Try engadget.com, cnet.com, etc...

    3- My biggest complaint is that the left speaker is weak. Not a huge deal, I use headphones for movies anyway. Otherwise Android is still buggy sometimes, apps do weird things on occasion. Luckily a restart usually fixes most issues, and it is quite speedy.
