Found a 32G today,, took it back
I'm in Kingston Ontario and our Canada Computers store is just up the street from me. Even though their online stock said zero I stopped in and they had a 32 G Asus Transformer on a display shelf. I've had one on order with Amazon since May 2'nd with no delivery date given yet so I bought this one. I was very please to have found one. I took it back to work with me and put it on charge. After a few minutes I turned it on and started to set it up. My initial impression was that this is a very nice tablet. Screen is big and clear and Honeycomb seems good as well. After I handled it for a few minutes I unfortunately noticed that the edge of the case on the left side of the screen was not tight. As I held the device my thumb would push down and the edge of the case would move slightly and creak. It was minor, but it just made the case feel a little flimsy. After looking at it and handling it more I decided to return it. The folks at CC looked at it and agreed that there was a defect with the case and gave me a full refund. No idea when they will get more in, but they put my name on the wait list for either a 16 or a 32G and hoped they would have stock by the end of the week. I guess we will see,, but at least I have now seen and held one. I guess another lesson learned here is to drop by the store and not trust on-line availablity lists.
