The R1F is present in ASUS catalog in Portugal. You can look it up in http://www.asus-advantage.com/web/descargas/200610_PT_NB_PVP.pdf Since most of specifications are in english (universal tech language) most of you can easely follow the catalog. Prices are also there, in Euro (1 euro = 1.25 USD, more or less). Following your discussions, the portuguese versions will be based in the Core 2 Duo (T7600 / T7400 / T7200 / T5600 / T5500 - 4MB/2MB cache - 1,66GHz-2,33GHz) This is a little confusing, since the catalog states only one price configuration: Core 2 Duo T7200 1 GB RAM Disk: SATA 100GB+TPM Price: 1.999 euro (can´t tell you if any other configuration will be available, the PDF catalog has only one) Did a quick search at the web sites of the main distributors in portugal but couln't find the R1F yet. BTW, the R2 is available (899 euro), has you can check in the catalog, along with specifications (especificações in portuguese). Hope this helps in the discussion of what is available where. I don't have a Tablet PC, just flirting with the notion. Started with the discontinued TC1100 (love the machine), seriously considered the Toshiba M4, decide to wait to see the machines from ASUS (95% of the company portables are from then) and from Lenovo (the Thinkpad X60t). "See" you.
