    Just FYI, it shows as being sold by Target so you'll pay shipping and taxes. Although that may mean little compared to just being able to order it...

    I believe I was fast enough to get one ordered, now I'm just holding my breath waiting for the shipping email.

    Went through the purchase process with Target until they tacked on $46 in taxes. I can wait.

    Yep, that's what held me back. Taxes. I have one on backorder from B&H free shipping and no tax, but who knows when they will have it in stock. I was going to just buy one from target and use it now. Then when the BH order comes in, use that for a Target return.

    Try nowinstock.net but don't wait for the notification. Just keep one eye on it. They're coming in two or three at a time every where it seems.

    Just finished ordering from walmart.com let's see if it actually ships. Supposed to get it by Monday according to their email but no tracking info yet...

    The problem with Walmart.com, Target.com, and Sears.com was that I wasn't willing to pay the extra $40-$50 for tax. My patience paid off and finally received mine from Amazon yesterday. Spent like 8 hours on it last night! Had the dock already from buy.com/Tigerdirect, so I was good to go! love it!

    IT's supposed to be 400, why is amazon selling it for $550. I'm not paying a 150 premium to get it a few weeks early.

    "Ships from and sold by Eastern Markets."

    and right over the "Add to Cart" button:

    In Stock. Sold by Eastern Markets

    I understand it's a third party retailer. Still doesn't answer the question as to why it's so much more.

    (or why they're selling the dock for 400+, or the pair for 900)

    Wow...looks like I am competing against all of you folks.

    No biggie, I can wait. I was expecting to go with the new Galaxy Pad 10.1, so that wasn't going to be available for weeks...but once I learned about the lack of an SD card slot, I started looking around...and wow, this Transformer looks like a great deal. Looks much fatter, but still not too bad...and nice ports and dock option.

    .51 vs. .33 is a lot fatter? That's 1/8th of an inch difference.

    It's 50% fatter, in addition to being somewhat heavier...and yes, most folks would notice that difference.

    I called today target,walmart and bestbuy. All were clueless but the Target guy was the funny one. I asked for the Asus Transformer. He said uhhh whats that? I said a tablet like the Ipad and the Motorola Xoom. He said oh we have the Acer Are-coh-nee-uh (how he pronounced it) and the Motorola X-o-o-m not sure how you say that one... I'm getting pissed with this waiting game. Especially since I thought I already had one coming from Target.

    There seems to be a lot of confusion on how Amazon operates. Amazon.com is a web site that sells products from many etailers. This can be Target, JoesCheapcomputers, etc. One of these etailers is Amazon.com, LLC which is the preferred etailer for the Amazon.com website. However, if Amazon.com, LLC does not stock the item, or have the item in stock, the website selects another etailer. Thus on a high demand item like the Transformer one buyer may see an item sold at $399 from Amazon,com, LLC, another buyer may see item for $399 from Target.com, and a 3rd buyer may see it for $599 from JoesCheapComputers.com.

    The difference go beyond the prices also. Amazon.com is very protective of Amazon.com, LLC's no-tax status; to the point they have terminated relationships with associates in certain states that have demanded that taxes be collected. Also, all items sold through Amazon.com, LLC to Amazon Prime members have free 2 day shipping. Only some items and some etailers provide free 2-day shipping.

    The result is different prices. For example, when a 16GB transformer is sold from Amazon.com, LLC the price is $399 +$0 tax + $0 shipping for Prime members = $399. Through Target the price is $399 + (399 * your state's tax rate) + $14.95 shipping (I think) = up to $455. Through JoesCheapComputers.com the price is $599 + (599 * your state's tax rate) + $19.95 shipping = up to $670.

    I hope this clears up the differences in prices for the same item.
