Back to $399 at Best Buy. $299 might have been a price error. :(

Tried to PM the $399 price at Memory Express, but they would not throw in the dock this time (would only do it for their $549 regular price). Didn't want to risk not getting the free dock, so I passed.

I'm taking mine back. Don't know if something is wrong with it or not but when I tap the screen sometimes it will start going crazy acting like I'm tapping everywhere. Seems a little sluggish and won't open presentation files for some reason when I download them from my school

I just pick one up an open at FS Kitchener location last night for 279.99, there was was still 1 open box left. I register with Asus and seems fine but haven't fill out the dock application. If the production registration went through that means no one has register yet right or you have to fill out the dock application to find out.

Can anyone that has a screenshot of the 299 price from the website or of their receipt send it to me in private message? I need to price adjust mine but only have a couple of days left to do it!

Many thanks.

Btw I did get my dock through the mail, it probably took about 2 weeks. Their website never updates when you check the status. It still shows my dock request as still just being in "request submitted" status even though I have receieved it.

Depends what you are in to and what you need. If you want an option to have a close to a full desktop experience with flash, office, printer support, mouse/keyboard support...as well as an option to go tablet or full laptop with the free dock, and have battery life of up to 16 hours with dock... Asus Vivo RT beats the iPad.

If you want an entertainment tablet, with much more apps and like playing in the Apple ecosystem (Airplay, Apple TV, iTunes)...iPad wins.

Also, full USB, SD card, and HDMI out built in to the tablet is something iPad doesn't have but Asus does. I'd take the Asus myself but then again, at any price I'd take the Galaxy Nexus 10 or Surface Pro over either lol.
I took the vivo tab back as it was not working properly (I tried calibrating the screen and it did nothing). I I opted for the ipad mini for school and bought Quickoffice or whatever it's called for $20 and it's a great app it opens all word documents and presentations as well as excel files. Very happy with it although I may have to take this back and get the 32gb model

I also just registered for the dock. I just took a picture of the box and trimmed the picture so that only the sticker on the back (with the S/N) shows and not the box.
I registered for the dock on Saturday on line, and received it today (Thursday) by FedEx...not bad...4 business days and it was in my hands.

(and I did not cut the label off either, just took picture and trimmed it)
