    Still, it's a little ironic: I came pretty close to picking up the Thrive, especially because owners were saying "yeah, it's on the thick side, but the replaceable battery and all those ports make up for it." And then Toshiba ditches the design and goes thin. Go figure.

    The best compromise for me was probably the Transformer (really liked the extra battery in the keyboard/dock) but then Asus announced THEIR next two tabs, the quad core with the Kal-El and the dual-core Slider. Sheesh, I'll probably never get off the sidelines.
