Available for $1188 at JB Hifi until Monday.

I picked up this tablet on Friday, has a bunch of great accessories available too, as well as a  battery keyboard dock that increases battery life by 50%, and a desk dock that has a Displayport+HDMI out plus  a few more usb ports. It also has a removable battery, and a slot for a WWAN (3G/LTE) card, so you can pick one up online and make this have mobile data. It's WLAN chip and SSD are also user replaceable.  Pretty neat to have all these user replaceable parts on a tablet that is around the same size as the Surface Pro 2 (with slightly less performance).

Picked up a battery keyboard and desktop dock for $80 from Grays Online...

 

Which is a lot better than $450 for both at JB Hifi.

Keyboard has arrived, it's great.  This makes the tablet so much more useful, I still don't know why Microsoft hasn't built a keyboard dock for SP3
