  • Gil’Dashard Luin’Strad

    Gaming wherever I am...work, the beach, in the john.......

  • jmu33

    i will game all day and all night!!!!!!!!!

  • FaSSt2001

    I would use for about half gaming and half watching videos!

  • Nicholas Vettese

    I am looking at games such as Grand Theft Auto and Riptide.  If I am lucky enough to win, I will most likely lose my job while trying to beat the mafia and slapping Ho's! :)

  • drummerboyforlife

    Would definitely game and try and do some work on it... But probably wouldn't accomplish much because I'd just want to game on it the whole time. 

  • N8shon

    I work from home when I'm home, but travel 6 months out of the year with work as well. This combination of functionality and portability will be perfect for me. Being able to easily change the form factor from tablet to laptop pc complete with ports and everything else is ingenious! And yes...there willllll be gaming happening, oh yes. 

  • AMGala

    I would use this gamepack to the fullest - web browsing, business related, document creation, game playing, video watching, music listening, video calling - you name it!

  • Wg Kincheloe

    I'd use it as my laptop replacement, so for everything, but the thing that excites me the most is tegra 3 optimized games!

  • Semianonymous

    I like to travel, so a tablet with some great perpherals is extremely interesting to me. Plus, that delicious battery life. 

  • brandito

    Just for gaming.  

  • Whitefangex

    How would i use this pack if i win? i would use it for school, the keyboard and battery life is amazing and I would type out notes, search things online, and generally use the tablet as an awesome media and internet browsing device in my spare time.

  • MJ

    Work then play...

  • Michael Kirkland

    I will use it as irresponsibly as I can.

  • http://twitter.com/elliotthj91 Elliott HillJennings

    Would use the Pad and keyboard dock to take notes and such for class as my macbook has no battery or touchscreen, the jawbox to pump some tunes and use as my not so portable mp3 player and the game controller to test out OnLive

  • TheEJTV

    I plan to use the kit as a productivity tool and maybe I will play around later. I JUST WANNA WIN!!!!

  • Jammer

    Im going to play games every day. What else would u do with this pack?

    I would use it for both work & play

  • Doug Nichols

    To play games of course.  And to be more productive in my work.

  • Aki I.

    i want one so i can save the cheerleader, then call someone to save the world.

  • gregpxc

    I would use it to keep up on the ever growing tech field. It's tough, but this would definitely help! It would also replace my extremely outdated Nook Color.

  • Sehar

    strictly be an on-the-go gaming rig when on work ;)

  • Seth M

    With this game pack, I'll finally take my rightful place on the iron throne. And maybe improve my work flow with something bigger than a 4.6" screen for typing!

  • http://strandedpanda.myopenid.com/ StrandedPanda

    I will place the Transformer Pad on my head in lieu of a shoe on my head. Headwear is serious business and I want nothing but the best for my delicate cranium.

  • Cory Burke

    Starting a new company and this sick Asus gear will most certainly be a component of my success. Plus I will liberally exude high praises for my Asus product developed by Asus and make sure to mention Asus a lot during demonstrations to my friends. Asus. 

  • David

    If I win I plan to use this to help keep my girlfriends brother entertained in the hospital since it'll be the only gaming allowed

  • Josh

    So doess Puerto Rico count as US or not? xD. I would use it for school and gaming on the go =D

  • Josh C

    I would use it for gaming mostly, but also use it for social media and reading the news. And music of course.

  • http://www.newsgroupservers.net/ TC

    If I won the gameback I'd use it primarily for graphic design tweaking, but come on - it's a Tegra 3, of course I'd have to do some gameplay research too!

  • John H.

    I wouldn't be restrained to the small screen of my NS4G anymore, and with trouble concentrating on small print, this would be great for my studies. By studies, I of course mean endless hours spent on Reddit. 

  • Farmwalker

    I would probably just use it for day to day things, but a package like this might encourage me to actually try real gaming on a tablet.

  • nuke3ae

    I would use this pack while I am away from my family for work on the ship that I work on. In addition to playing games and movies, I would use video chat to stay in touch.

  • Matthew

    I will use itit for gameplay and surfing.

  • WilliamSurname

    The tablet would be a birthday gift for my mother, who has been wanting a TF300 ever since I bought mine. The controller, dock, and Jawbone would be mine though!

  • Terrance Wickman

  • Shawn Alty

    I plan on replacing my netbook with this thing to get insane battery life while still outperforming my old netbook. Going to be amazing.

  • Shane Goodwin

    I would surely use it as a gaming rig. I have a 2 hour commute via bus, so this would surely make the time a little more enjoyable. Plus, when forced to do so, use it to get some work done as well. *sigh* If I must...

  • kminer1

    It will be my first laptop and tablet.  I am behind the times!  Thank you.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tony-Gultice/584049220 Tony Gultice

  • Rigo Ortiz

    Take to college when i have a boring history course and play it!

  • JustinUnderscore

     I would use it to test the idea that it's possible to do all your computing on a tablet. I would use it for games, work, school, and programming. The keyboard dock would help a lot with that last one especially.

  • Dima Aryeh

    Since I am now a journalist, I'd buy a keyboard dock and use it as my long lasting journalism machine slash gaming machine. I LOVE tablet gaming

  • Niall Mullins

    I understand there are legal reasons beyond AP's control that limit this to US residents only, but guys, this is the 3rd giveaway in a row with no love for the rest of the world. We're all holding our breath for a chance to get our hands on a gorgeous Transformer Pad 300!

  • Peterobri

    Retro gaming rig

  • http://www.facebook.com/Supreme.Rose.Commander Adrian Escobedo

    First I would use it for School.  With OneNote, I can take notes and keep them synched with my laptop. With Maxthon, I can sync web pages and bookmarks to the tablet, phone, and laptop.  Then after I do my homework, I PLAY GAMES LIKE OREGON TRAIL, PLANTS VS. ZOMBIES, ZOMBIEVILLE, AND OTHERS!!!!!!

  • Kevyndelva

    I will give it to my kids. can't afford to buy them one.

  • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

    If I got it, it would actually be the start of more gaming on a tablet.  I already use my older tablet for some gaming, but not a ton.  Without the Tegra 3, a lot of the best games aren't available or don't play that well yet.

  • Rufflez

    I'll use this non-stop when I get fired for spending more time on here than working

  • White Pawn

    I want to use it everywhere in the world - including atop Grand Canyon!

  • Andrew

    If I won, I'd use it mainly for things like Web surfing and email, with some gaming.  I'd also like to get into developing for Android with it.

  • mduran1023

    It would join me in bed, now that my laptop's battery has given out and I can't find a replacement.

    From there, gaming, watching videos, web browsing, etc. It'll all be great!

  • Jason Dodge

    I will be using this as my on-the-go productivity powerhouse. It will allow me to edit documents and confer with clients from anywhere I might happen to be.

    Also, Angry Birds Space. Darn pigs... stealin' my eggs in outer space...

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7GU4N7CVDBJXMZOBFO3DMIQZH4 J

  • Will

    If I win this, I would be surfing through the interwebs such as looking at the latest news on Android Police and playing Angry Birds or some awesomwe Tegra game. I wouldn't mind using this to learn how to develop apps and etc.

  • http://profiles.google.com/haseeb.shaikh7 Haseeb Shaikh

    I will use it to download a lot of the Tegra games and play them all the time.

    On the go, would probably take it to work and slack off a bit. I would also make it a partial replacement for our home Windows machine.

  • Relio

    Nothing but gaming of course

  • BrianRedford

    Graphic Design. Rendering with that thing would be GREAT!

  • http://twitter.com/Olliedcy Ollie Ducey

  • Coy Longshore

    All about the gaming, no need to use it for work.

  • Matt Gassner

    Too awesome to just play games with, be perfect for movies, and doing some writing and surfing on the go...but yes games, lots of games.

  • Ryan B

    I would use it both for work and play. Isn't that the beauty of tablets?

  • Cosmic Rick

    I'm going to use the pack to do the same thing I do every night, Pinky... TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!

  • Miketoasty

    I will actually use it for just about everything. Using my TF101 to write this comment and would really love the upgrade!

    I'll use it at work. For 'work.' *wink wink wink*

  • Kyle L

    Gaming all the way.

  • http://twitter.com/muteminority PRP

    I know I would definitely be using it to get work done, but the gaming will come in handy when I need a break, or to relax after hours!

  • DaJon Hawkins

    I plan to use this amazing piece of tech for school in the fall when I start college, I can see so many uses from taking notes on the fly, to recording lectures, and even checking android Police in class lol. I really cant wait to use it to play some tegra Zone games exciting. 

  • kruglovus

    Gaming is fun, but I am looking for an Android tablet to replace a laptop

  • Ryan Tedrow

    Definitely a mixture of both work and play.  My old tablet was paired with my PS3 controller and it was such a pain to go through the pairing process between PC and tablet every time I wanted to take it out so I hardly had a chance to do some serious gaming with it.  I had a keyboard for it but similarly it's sometimes I didn't have the space to set it all out.

  • Richard

    Going to college, hopefully I could use this for homework and then switch to game mode after

  • bunnybash

    I will use this primarily to cause others envy. If I see people trying to get work done on their tablets without a keyboard, then I shall plug in the dock and type away... If I see people playing games with lag and poor graphics, I shall introduce them to the world of Tegra 3!

  • http://www.facebook.com/sd4david David Haug

    gaming only. 

  • Law

    gaming and web browsing on the go

  • egorey

    What could you and would you not do with a loaded package like this. Game when you can and work when they make you.

  • Jim Morris

    Commercial games, emulators, you name it. Gaming on this would be awesome!

  • http://www.jeffratte.com/ Jeff Ratte

    I would most likely use it as a replacement to my current laptop!

  • John Lee

    Play games, but will need to hide it from the wife and kids first...

  • Cody Oss

    I would for the most part use it for school. But hey, I am a gamer at heart and would not mind trying out some of the stuff in the tegra zone!

  • Paul_Werner

    On the go gaming rig for when I'm visiting my parents house

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=725292111 Stephen Young

    When I win, I plan to use the prize pack to it's limits! I'll use it for my school work and research or reading articles on Pulse news feed then easily switch over to some classic N64 ROMS or use the Bluetooth controller to get a better gaming experience with Shadowgun and Samurai II: Vengeance THD. With the new release of Mass Effect Infiltrator for Android, my gaming experience with Mass Effect will come full circle-I can even use the processing power for  the Mass Effect 3 live wallpaper TegraZone has waiting for me.

  • J.L.

    Game until my eyes bleed.

  • http://twitter.com/HAYABUSAAE86 KEVIN

    LAN parties everyday.

  • http://twitter.com/BrionBrown Brion Brown

    I would love to play games on this instead of my 7" tablet but I also think it would end up taking the place of my current laptop for everyday use.

  • twinkies25

    I'll use it for both!! So that people think that I'm working while I'm having fun playing games =]

  • Stephen Te

    WOW! With a specs like that I would definitely use it for gaming! I would also use it for photo editing and graphic designing. Very very convenient for travel! Laptop should be obsolete by now. :)

  • mushypizza

    I'm going to use it as a productivity tool during college: play games during class, i mean... take notes ;)

  • Jeremy

    I would use this for gaming and for work. This would be great for customer support when I'm out of the office. And the larger screen is great for gaming.

  • Yuriyp

    Since I got my first laptop after college, I have not touched my desktop since!  Now with this beauty, I would probably never touch my macbook again.

  • http://twitter.com/cezeOne cezeOne

    Docked I would use it for OnLive gaming and using it on trips away from home for getting some work done instead of lugging my big laptop.
    Undocked I would use it for reading books, testing out new apps, and all my social networking.

  • Spencerar

    I will take advantage of the mythical time that I have to relax and unwind to make it as entertainment-laden as possible.  I want to play Death Rally, Anomaly and Shadowgun on a Tegra 3 based gaming platform with Jambox augmented sound!  WOOT!
