When I need to manipulate data, I just do them in my Acer then transfer the file to an external hard drive or flash disk then transfer it to the Transformer.
The Transformer comes in a beautiful box with teeny-tiny manuals that labels the parts and very few other words.
I wish that Asus had thrown in a free case and a basic box, as I had a hard time shopping for case. I finally settled on a Halo V-Mall reversible sleeve that makes it impractical to use when you're waiting for an elevator. I want something like the iPad cover, wherein you can take out the iPad from your bag, then flip open the cover then use agad.
So I still bring a book with me.
BTW, it doesn't turn on immediately like the iPad. It turns on after about 11 seconds.
What I like about it is that, when I'm lining up at the bank, I can turn it on and read from it. And because I can bring around just the top portion, it is much lighter than bringing around the Acer.

Otherwise, they could not help me as it was their first time to see an Asus.
The hotline was not much help, merely confirming to me that I could not connect the Transformer to the Canon MX 416 since the Canon Sg site did not have the driver for it.

Times like these, I think of Steve Jobs' grappling with the tools.
Even the Inquirer write-up about the Transformer used the words Asus and Acer interchangeably. It said that 375,000 units were sold in a month. My friend, who told me about the press release, thought that the sales figure referred only to the Philippines when there were so few units in V-Mall. If not V-Mall, where else can you find computers? Greenbelt? Glorietta?
When I read the article after she told me about it, I figured that the figure was worldwide, which doesn't make it so bad compared to iPad's 2.5 million.

Besides, how can there be so many people with a Transformer when everywhere I go, I am asked to demo the Transformer, even at the iGig shop at Promenade. I was shopping for a case when a guy manning iGig asked me if I could bring the Transformer over. When I went back that weekend, iGig was under renovation or had evacuated.
