    I had it shipped over from Amazon.de. It randomly came with the QWERTY keyboard instead of the QWERTZ it was supposed to have, so I won't complain too much lol. The keyboard layout is still a bit funky though and will take some time to get used to.

    When I see this, it makes me want to go with my original plan of getting an eGPU box, selling my desktop, and making the eGPU box and this tablet serve as both my desktop and tablet: I would game with the eGPU at home but I would use my tablet on the go. That screen is just so amazingly gorgeous it is growing on me again like the very first time I was smitten with it in May of last year. I seriously hope Asus makes another tablet just like this next generation because this is design done right. I would be the first in line for purchase!

    I have the same eventual goal, though I have yet to narrow the focus to any particular device. I might even go 2016 MacBook Pro 13" since it reportedly works well with TB3 and eGPU docks.

    (Something as simple—and beautifully executed—as Air Drop between my iPhone and iPad makes me lust for having it between those devices and my main machine, and vice versa, which means it would have to be a Mac. Plus many other reasons, naturally. With Windows in Boot Camp for games, etc. But I digress...)

    Being able to upgrade the eGPU means the device will go years longer before obsolescence.

    Thanks so much, @MacrosTheBlack007 ! I can't wait to see the entire gamut of benchmarks once you settle in and get your device all primed and ready.

    Awesome! Do you happen to have Ice Storm Unlimited, Cloud Gate, and Fire Strike numbers? Those are the most common tests referred to from 3DMark.
