Sweet! The new Ivybridge chips are really nice! Are you a gamer? Did it have an integrated graphics chip? Sorry, bit of a computer geek here.

I just picked up a GSM Galaxy Nexus for AT&T. It beats the pants off my old Samsung Infuse. That thing must have frozen 2 times a day. Why'd you choose the Transformer instead of the new Nexus 7?

I know I can't speak for red, but I would think that if the specs were similar the ability to convert the Transformer into a laptop with the addition of the accessory keyboard might be the reason.

The 16 GB Nexus 7 was back in stock today at the google play store. The 8 had been available the entire time, but I think that on balance since there is no expandable memory option it would be better to have the extra memory to start with (since they removed the ASUS MEMO 370T's micro sd card slot since all nexus devices are moving towards cloud based storage rather than the freedom to store things locally.)

I'll probably be kicking myself for spending the money later, but I've never had a tablet before and its kind of a belated birthday present for myself. I mean I didn't need it, but then again technically I didn't need my car either, I was going to have to replace my old one eventually and this was what I wanted, I'm so happy I ordered mine while the 12 order bank was still open for Job 2 as they completely ruined the options matrix for next year, and I'd have had to think long and hard about either taking on more debt or saving more for an ST instead of an SE or Ti.

I've graduated university and so far the job seems stable if not exactly ideal, so I've started to settle into this role at least for the present time.

Well happy birthday! Sounds like a great present. I like the Transformer. I've been thinking about getting a new windows surface when they come out. The idea of having a keyboard attached to the tablet is pretty sweet.

Has anybody with the 10-speaker stereo upgraded their subwoofer yet? I was wondering if it was possible to put a bigger sub in but still utilize the space where the current sub is...

Do you mean keeping the same box?

I don't see it working well. On the assumption that you find the right 10" to meet the specs of the box, the amp/system is probably tuned for the 8". Anyone who has thrown better aftermarket speakers into stock locations will probably attest to the frequency loss...

I'd check in the audio forums...

This Boredom Chat thread doesn't get as much business as the HN one does... The Lounge gets more business and stays pretty low key

I really do need to downsize my woofer and box. I also want to quick disconnect all the wiring so I could just unplug it and have all the hatch for storage. Whatever you come up with I'll be watching cuase I need some help in this dept.
