Sorry, people kept suggesting to me to get the Tegra 2 but a coworker has one and brings it everyday so i have tried it first hand, and i still prefer my Gen8 A101 over it. I do want a tablet with the same build quality but it's just a pretty paperweight if i can't play my anime. It's no loss for him since i rarely see him actually use it, and whenever i borrowed it, it doesn't actually have any videos on it, my 101 gets more use out of it than he does with his.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2UOwxXZvaA
This is what 720p anime is like on the Asus Transformer, the new firmware update didn't help. nVidia may have the superior h264 support in their GPU's (My ATI5850HD took over a year of driver updates before it played decently, nVidia GPU's worked from day1), but didn't put that in their Tegra2. Also note that they've listed the Transformer to be capable of 1080p, but it can't even handle 720p. iPods are supposed to be able to play 720p, but my iPod 4th Gen can't even handle 480p. Just because it says 1080p on the box doesn't mean you'll actually be able to play the 1080p videos you have on it.
If there's a tablet out there that can play anime, i'd jump on it. The Gen9 A101 i've been waiting for turned out to delayed 'til next year and i'm looking for other tablets that can do the same.
I know 1080p is moot since these things don't have that kind of resolution. But what i'm after is compatibility with my media library. I have almost 2000 videos in my harddrive waiting to be watched right now and there is no way i'm going to convert them everytime i wanted to watch something on the tablet. With the current tablets, you have to leave the PC running overnight transcoding so you'll have videos to put on them the next day. On the Archos, i just dragged and dropped.
