ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Review

ASUS has been plugging away at tablets for years now, experimenting with convertible netbooks and trying to coax some semblance of finger-friendliness out of Windows.

Best Buy mocks iPad in Eee Pad Transformer promo

You can't accuse Best Buy's marketing department of being afraid to shoot the golden goose. The company may be one of the few retailers to offer Apple's iPad 2, but that hasn't stopped it from taking pot-shots at the iOS slate in its new ASUS Eee Pad Transformer promotion.
