Asus' hardware design has always been pretty solid, and this proves the level of refinement it has reached. I'm so looking forward to receiving mine; I hope they ship soon.

I barely see anything at all. It probably has less parts than a M16 rifle, which is amazing.

Asus is making this? For some reason, I thought it would be moto. Regardless, Asus hardware has been relatively solid (OG TF has zero hardware problems). Asus' problem with tablets has always and consistently been OS/firmware updates. Somehow they find a way to screw the pooch on every OS/firmware update they push. Hopefully this being a Google product, the OS/firmware won't have these issues anymore. I had no interest in buying an asus tablet ever again (so many issues with ICS updates), but having this be a google product (technically), I have high hopes that they'll get the software right for once.

Look at the size of that circuit board, integration is really going to the extreme.

I would imagine Google used Asus on this to show their 3rd party partners they won't abandon them simply because they bought Motorola's mobile division.
