    Hello, I want to get a new tablet (currently using and android'ed Touchpad still), and HD resolution is important to me. I've been keeping an eye on the TF700 and now have a chance to grab one for about $345 new. But I know some newer HD tablets were announced at CES and are on the horizon for some time (but I don't think pricing has been announced). At this point should I just hold off to see what is coming, or at that price am I safe to grab the TF700 and be happy for a while to come.


    My primary uses will be reading Comics, web browsing, and 720p videos/movies.


    Thanks to any help!

    At that price I would jump on it. The resolution is great, the TF700 works really well and the dock, if you get it, is a real bonus. If you wait for the next one to be available there will be 6 more announced, you'll be waiting a long time.

    I say go for it!

    If not, there will always be something bigger better or badder on the horizon.

    Wow, $345 is a great price for a new TF700, I would like to buy one too! May I ask where you bought it from?

    That's more like the price on a TF300. It's a deal for sure.

    Even at $429 it's a deal. But that explains it.
