Why the hell would I want a dongle hanging off the front of it? That won't even switch it on from powered off! Why don't you click the links in my sig below and see where i stuck that dongle mate! Then you might realise how stupid Asus are for not putting one in!
do what I do use xbmc remote on a tablet, works great and very fast responce.
Because we all don't do things the way you do them? I can't power up my box with a tablet using the xbmc app. I have had the xbmc ipad app hang the latest stable OpenElec build too (which is a bit of a mood killer when watching a movie). I don't like leaving an appliance like an HTPC up 24/7 because it wastes electricity and I don't want to have to listen to fans, etc.
Oh here is a good one too. Phone rings. With an IR setup I just reach for ther emote and feel the play/pause button and press it. With a tablet I have to find the tablet, turn it on, potentially unlock it. Run the xbmc app, wait for it to sync to the HTPC and then press the pause button. I guess that call was not really so important after all.
And then there's the whole "I was drinking a beer" or "I was eating a snack" and the tablet gets schmutz all over it, or gets destroyed or ruined.
Yeah tablets suck as remotes, now you know.
