We just received our Asus Transformer and I am extremely impressed by it - great bit of kit!

Second the Asus Transformer, solid, reasonable price, does the job!! Plus the keyboard add on makes them very flexible and doubles the battery life adds full usb etc

On the brink of ordering Asus Transformers for our new sixth form. Very impressed with them. Battery with keyboard attached is monumental.

We have just ordered the Asus Transformer to test out, heard nothing but good things.

Another vote for the Transformer. Demand is extremely high though and there's not many out in the supply channel.

Asus Transformer once again. Think its the winner! lol

Yeh it appears I can't get hold of the transformer from insight.
Think I'm gonna go with the Motorola Zoom.
Its just a test anyway to see what works in classroom and if they have any benefits over traditional laptops.

I have just bought a 10" Ziio from Creative labs, I already have a 7" for my son and was so impressed I got myself one. It was only £185.00 too!
Check it outIt also take up to a 32gb SDcard plus lots of other bits.

im not so sure on the transformer since the 3.1 update. Yes proxy servers was an essential update but since then my battery life is poor (it used to just enable wifi to sync etc or at least thats my impression) its now either on or off. If you leave the tab on the dock it drains the dock at an alarming rate even when off and aparantly if the dock gets discharged completely it will then not charge again. If i leave it on the dock wifi if set to always on disconnects and needs to be disabled/enabled to get it to work again and even if its set to turn wifi off it often needs to be dis/re enabled to connect again. Im hoping 3.2 fixes these faults because atm im not as happy with it as i used to be which is a shame because it was a great little device

Just thought I'd update this thread as I used it when looking for a tablet for school.
Decided on the Creative Ziio due to the low price - oh what a mistake! Having used android for a fair while now I can say that this tablet is not a true reflection of android, it doesn't even have the android market!!! Basically you are stuck with the apps that come with it as the "ZiStore" is beyond useless. You can install apps by downloading the apk and using the file explorer to open them but it is very hit and miss, and even when you get the app installed it is very unstable. And did I mention no flash until you update the tablet - gunna try this now, no auto-update facility grr!
Hardware wise the device looks quite good for the price. The screen is a bit poo but then it is less than £200. The most annoying thing is it is only a single touch resistive screen, and the middle of the screen is very wobbly so it clicks in when you press it.
If ALL you are going to do with it is browse the internet then it is decent for £200. Everyone else avoid.
(No wonder "the ipad/iphone is wickid and android is pants")
