Not me, but then I have to be honest, Asus totally missed the mark for me.
First they told reviewers that the TF101 dock would work with any future Transformers, and then after I bought largely based on that statement, it turned out to be untrue.
Then they shot themselves in the foot with the Prime's metal case (I don't want that, especially when it wrecks signal strength) and poor design (Pogo connectors for antennas, a downgrade to monaural audio). The GPS debacle and reports of significantly poorer wifi and bluetooth reception from both end-users and professional reviews sealed that one for me.
I went from being a customer lining up to buy the Prime to one who wouldn't touch it with a fifty foot pole. The TF300 is too crippled for my liking, so that's out too. The TF700 I might've considered (well, other than Asus's major TF101 issues), but they jammed an unnecessarily, stupidly high-res screen in there which will kill its performance and battery life.
If they'd announced a TF700 with the Prime's screen and stereo audio, and if they hadn't had all these TF101 ICS issues, I might well have stayed with them whenever I get around to upgrading. As is, I'll probably jump ships to another brand when I next buy a tablet.
