These days you'll be able to grab an Ultrabook which will give you the portability of a tablet with the easy typing of a keyboard, for not much more space consumption than the Transformer + keyboard.

My experience with Bluetooth has been: great for hands-free when you're in the car, but sucks the power out of your batteries like there was no tomorrow. Don't do it unless you have a charging station with spare batteries on standby.

For my money, the Ultrabook is a winner unless your operating system specifically supports touch interfaces, and all the apps you are using are designed for touch.
