Default Transforming into a Better Tablet

"It’s thinner, smaller and lighter then its predecessor and its made out of superior materials.  The aluminum body has an improved look and feel and the higher integrity of the materials has allowed for an even more sturdy hinge for the keyboard docking station."

The ASUS Transformer got attention for being a tablet with a dockable keyboard.  It apparently was an enough of a success to have a sequel which puts the Transformer Prime on par with more recent if not cutting edge hardware.  Part tablet, part laptop, I do think that this is largely where mobile computing is headed, and what could ultimately put an end to netbooks, if it were not for the cost.  An 18 hour battery life is most impressive, and likely will not be seen by laptops for a very long time.  If only productivity apps were more caught up with their "desktop" counterparts it would be a real killer.
