    Amazon ?

    Amazon seem to be hiding it well, if they are taking pre-orders for the thing

    Ordered!

    Woohoo! Cant see it on Amazon, or several of the other vendors at the moment but went for ebuyer instead (theyre usually reasonably reliable). In the time it took me to put in my CC details, they sold another 5 (currently 183 left for pre-order).

      Did you get any option on which colour was ordered? I cant see any mention of it on the site.

        171 left when I visited and you can pick out of two colours:

    Can't wait for this new Asus slab!

    Especially the bit where it changes into a robot and punches you for having an iPod.

      It's a shame...

      ..that they opted to make the keyboard incompatible with the previous model.

      So, if I buy one of these (and I'm really thinking about it), will I have to throw the keyboard out, when I decide to upgrade to the next model? It really makes no sense (other than Asus wanting to sell another keyboard)

    I can't find the "old" 16 Gb model for £299. Any help? Online or in central London.

    Search Amazon for "asus tf201" - they're only offering the "gold" finish at the moment. Prefer the Amethyst Grey.

    bundle only

    Why are Asus only offering the keyboard bundle here? Whilst it may be appealing to some, I don't want to pay an extra £100 for a keyboard, if I really wanted a keyboard I would get a netbook or stick with a real laptop.

    AC re: bundle only

    It's pre-order, im sure they'll become more flexible when it's actually released. Or, why not take a look at a Lenovo LePad K2 instead?

      Hopefully there will be plenty of options to consider once CES starts, as long as it doesn't take months for them to be released over here.
