Official word from Asus is that they can't make enough Transformers to keep up with demand, something that's perhaps not surprising given that the tablet maintains high-end specs but a low-end price. Luckily for some users, keeping a hawkish eye on (r)etailer's websites has allowed them to snatch one up when the seller was lucky enough to get a few in stock. Now, however, there's an easier way, called NowInStock.

The service keeps tabs on a whole host of retailers and checks the stock situation every minute so that it's always up to date. Not only that, but as you can see, it shows the specific model and the price - impressive. Certainly makes being a hawk much simpler, doesn't it?

    How are you guys liking your transformers? I would really like to get a tablet in the next couple of months.

      This is one of the better value so far. But by the time "next couple of months" comes, there would be something better.
