So, my thoughts are this:
Especially the price is without Tax, so everyone in Europe has to pay ~20% more on that. And don’t forget the “favourable” trade between USD and Euro - so more like 950$. Then round that thing up a bit - and we’ve got 1000€ as starting-point for the “normal” Transformer.
Next on my list are all the “up-to” values. Based on the price seen in Surface, my guess would be they’d have a quite unfavorable starting loadout with an M3, 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD. Still, no pen included (40$ for one if I found the correct one) only a keyboard.
Oh, and did I mention the normal version not having a kickstand? You’ll have to take your keyboard out if you want to angle it - and that will only support 2 angles.
What is my bottom line?
The transformer looks compelling with the max-specs - but the price isn’t right in my eyes. 1000€ for likely only 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD is just far too much money.
Also, they don’t say ANYTHING about battery-life so I think we’ll see at most surface-levels of battery
After all I think PF will outspec the Transformer with in the starting configuration (if we take the worst from the [advisory specs] (http://eve.community/t/fire-fire-pyramid-flipper-advisory-specs-fire-fire/772) we’ll have 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD!) - which will cost be < 1000$ with tax already included (see [Mike & Konsta Q&A] (https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/4gj2gi/we_are_eve_people_behind_oneplus_samsung_and/d2hzcz5))
