First of all are you talking about the ASUS Transformer or the ACER Iconia? Second, if you are replacing a laptop I would recommend buying a tablet with a keyboard dock. Both Asus and Acer have docks built for their devices so check the prices in you local store to see which one is the better deal. (In my area I have been seeing various sales lately)
I personally have the Asus transformer and I love it, but I am unable to find the keyboard dock in stock.
