ronw: an you explain a little how you use it with a torrent. not quite sure what to do once you have the vpn software running


Depends on your vpn software. For Astrill the key was to run its client in OpenVPN mode (there is a button at the login screen), select a server with an * next to it, and then set up port forwarding. If you google Astrill uTorrent Setup you'll get an easy tutorial (simply put you click the port forwarding option in Astrill, it will asign a random port for you to use, then go into your torrent software and set it up to use that port.

Then the best thing to do is use that link I posted to check to see if its working as expected.

Wow that is a good deal. Hate it when that happens.

Has anyone seen the car charger sold separately anywhere in NZ?

Check this out:

"In the last year, we've seen at least four major attempts to take on Apple's iPad—the Motorola Xoom, the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the BlackBerry PlayBook, and HP's TouchPad. (There have been countless other tablets from smaller firms.) While every one of these has failed, most iPad rivals tend to be evasive when it comes to their terrible sales numbers....."

There you go, apparently we've all hitched our wagon to just another big fat loser (and who doesn't even make the top tier of losers).

All those tablets are the same at the core, the only difference is the screen, a few misc parts, and assembly. My friends Acer A500 is practically the same, it just has USB ports on the tablet body.

The Transformer's at least pretty unique being a tablet with an optional keyboard. I'll get on some time, if I need to input any data, writing anything on a touch screen really sucks. Since I text a lot it makes me not want to get an Android phone unless a one with a decent keyboard comes out.

Ah ok cheers. So something like this.
http://www.acquire.co.nz/acquire/default.asp?PageID=ProductDetail&pf%5Fid=2170079&dept%5Fid=1700045

Yeah, I love the keyboard. It's a great stand for it as much as anything.

Sheesh, not long at all until we're left behind with the 'old' model.

Looks like Noel Leeming is getting these in too!

http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/shop/browse.ep?cID=101395&filters=c10005+c3684&sorter=productName-asc

Might not be the cheapest but they do have Fly Buys and interest-free deals.

I don't really care if they come out with a quad core model. I've yet to find anything that slows the transformer down. I bet the extra cores are idle and turned off most of the time.

That's the spirit timmmay!

$699 for 16Gb without keyboard is fine, I got mine for $689 last week and pricespy has the lowest price at $687. So not much difference.
I see NL also have the 32Gb with dock for $999. That's equal cheapest with Pb Tech according to pricespy.
