First it was a portable computer, then Laptop. Then Notebook. Then Tablet PC. Then Netbook. So what do we call this one? Nettab? Tablenet? Apad? I'll bet, based on the configs, this thing outsells the Ipad. Does it come with wings?

This formfactor does absolutely interest me. I love my Acer AspireOne, and end up taking it with my 95% of the time instead of my full size notebook with a 17in screen. It does almost everything I need to do while mobile and have often thought the only thing I REALLY miss with it is what my old HP Tablet that died on me had: A reversible LCD and touchscreen for reading docs and such.

This thing looks like it is close to the perfect netbook. Lets see what the price says.

I personally would LOVE a laptop that could fold flat w/ the screen still out, itd be great for movies. You could use the keyboard as a kickstand! And if they had touch or a way of scrolling w/o the keyboard I could see using it for reading, and even allot of casual games just need mouse input, if its $500 or less I could see it doing well, allot of other tablets are just too expensive when you can often get a dual cored toshiba for $375

If a bear tries to dump in the woods but a tree falls on him with no one around, is the pope's hat still funny?

 If they have it under the $500 price mark, then Asus will really have my attention. Let me read my mags and news papers from it too!

Would only buy if it has capacitive multitouch. Cuz otherwise, I'd rather just buy the iPad. If I really need the PC function, then I can always go to my main PC. I can't imagine going back to resistive multitouch. The last device I had that had a resistive multitouch was the Samsung Instinct...and it was a really bad experience.

I also own one of the HP tablets. If this can get the expected battery life and weigh that much less I would prob run out and buy one... if i could sell my hp that is.

Exactly what the iPad should have been.

For $500 I would consider buying on day 1. If they make a UL30Vt-A1 in a convertable form factor for ~$1000, then I would be really excited.

Just bought HP's TM2 convertible tablet. So yes, this form factor interests me. If this is cheap enough, might buy one for my wife.

I would strongly consider buying this if the screen folds to cover the keyboard and priced low.

What I am really waiting for is a tablet with Windows 7 Home Premium, duel core processor, about the size of this one, and without a keyboard.

 I will be willing to pay high.  64 bit OS, 4G RAM would be nice.  HD or SSD or storage size doesn't matter to me.  Linux in place of Windows is OK.
