Finally, a tablet with a detachable keyboard.  I was against these tablets, because I appreciate resting my fingers on the keys when I'm typing, instead of hovering my hands over a touch-screen.  I have tons of faith in ASUS to create a quality product.  I do agree with Don2041 that the dock should have ports for HDMI and SATA (SATA most definitley).  I personally can't wait for ASUS to release this product into the wild.

Would be nice to have Windows 7 (or 8) sitting on top of this contraption.

That dock should have the following  HDMI,DVD burner,hard drive ,a real gpu ,a real cpu . OH SHIT I should have bought notebook instead of another one of those MAXIPADS, and we all know where they hide out right!

This is certainly a new solution to the convertible laptop.  I'm not sure it's much more utilitarian than the "twist-and-fold" convertible tablet idea, but I certainly give them credit for creativity.  Dropping the extra weight when you don't need it is nice, but I just see it becoming a situation of not wanting to carry the keyboard piece around and not having it when you wish you did.

I'd prefer a full sized keyboard dock.

We've used Asus products happily for many years.  This is a welcome addition to their catalog.  I hope they offer a WiFi only version.

The story does say "optional 3G radio".

WOW!  Let's hope that Asus doesn't f**k this all up by charging wayyy too much or by requiring a wireless contract.
