    I liked the TF so much I bought another for my wife. (We share a keyboard)
    We set all the parameters in You Tube to the same search settings but the search comes back differently on each machine.
    Any ideas why this would be?????

    Yes. One is set as mobile and the other is set as desktop. Google owns youtube, so the youtube search engine is practically google search. And google search will give you different results depending on what platform you use.

    The search engine also put your account and cookies in effect. For instance, if your searches in the past primarily were of movies, if you do a search for "transformer" the search engine will bring up the movie transformer. But if your past searches were primarily of computers or gadgets, then the asus transformer will turn up.
