  • This is the current version of the Asus Tablet to which I referred. It uses a Tegra SoC and runs on Android, not Win 8 or such. You will note that the hinge assembly of the keyboard serves as a docking station. I spoke with the person who had i…

  • Marvin,   A couple of comments:   !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    You silver tongued devil!    I will have to follow the MSI link, but, from the reference to using a 150 watt card, MSI must have provided a power supply for their expansion …
