Are you all still happy?
Those of you who have had your Transformer for a while now, do you still feel you made the right choice? Even if you like it a lot, what problems have you had, or what do you wish had been done differently? Does anyone wish they had ordered the 32 Gig instead of the 16 Gig?
I am about to order and just looking for a little more positive info.

I'm still happy with the transformer, it helped me get rid of my laptop ( something iPad 2 couldn't do here's to hoping ios5 might help with that.). There are bugs but they seem to be mostly from the Android side. I love the fact that I can pretty much do anything on it. The quality and choice of materials is great considering the price. The biggest issue for me now is to see how much update support I'm going to get from Asus, so far so good.

Still quite happy. I love how honeycomb works, it took a while to get the hang of it, but I like it much better than at first.
Web browsing is not perfect, but it is hands down better than any non PC browsing I have done.
Some games display incorrectly but Angry Birds and a tower defender style game I own works just fine (they were the the only games I played on Android anyway).
Calendar and e-mail are great.
I miss Netflix, and I want HBO Go to work but aside from that I am very happy.

HBO Go works in the browser on the transformer as do a lot of other flash based TV show sites such as Daily Show and Conan!
I am extremely happy with the xformer and it gets better every day. I was using it for a bout 2 weeks before my dock came and thought it was awesome. Now that i have the dock its at another level. Being able to type simple things like forums posts to more complex stuff for work is great on the keyboard. The battery lasts a long time without the dock and a rediculous amount of time with the dock. On my first full charge of the dock and the keyboard I've been going for 27 hours so far. The dock's battery is now flat but the xformer has 48% battery left. This was after some standby time in my car with wifi on but not connected to an AP and also after 8 hours straight of streaming mp3 audio via wifi from my server at home while at work last night. Along with a around 6 hours give or take of browsing and watching youtube/flash game videos (yay Guid Wars 2!!!).
So TL;DR Transformer is awesome and gets better the more you use it!
EDIT: disclosure I have the beta firmware from ASUS that fixed all the issues with the dock. This firmware should be out within the next few days according to asus.

Not only happy I'm now recommending it to some family members that have been waiting to either buy an iPad 2. Even with my TF having some light bleed issues and the dock is in need of a firmware update to correct some disconnects, it is a very useful platform that simply does things iOS is simply not allowed to do.
Honeycomb 3.1 and the directly Google is headed with Icecream sandwich is really stepping up the game. I enjoyed the Xoom, but really loving the combo of KB dock and Tablet. Gives me a work platform and an entertainment platform that given a few tweaks covers all my needs and then some. Asus response to some of the issues has been amazing as well.
