It's the same deal here. The ASUS thing could be a gigantic flop. However, the company has always produced top-of-the-line devices overseas and is well-known for their components (motherboards, especially) here in the States. The stats say it should comparable to the Xoom, and it costs $200 less.

You're right - we will never know how good it is for sure until we all buy one, run a dozen benchmark tests, and try to run over it with a tractor to see how durable it is. However, the evidence we have here suggests that it will be at worst a compelling new entrant into the tablet market and at best the first full-featured Android tablet below $500.
Yeah . . .
