Default Tablet with Skype

I'm looking to getting a tablet for my mom since she find tablet's interface a lot easier to use than a standard desktop environment. I looked into Asus Transformer but a lot of people complain that Skype doesn't work at all. Can anyone here recommend a 10 inch tablet that's light enough and can run Skype (with video) perfectly? No, I don't want to get an iPad2.

Skype works great on my iPad.

Well I guess I can wait for the Toshiba Excite in a few months. Google Talk isn't bad but I want to cover all my bases.

I have an Asus TF 101 and am able to do video Skype on it fine. Sound and picture quality is quite good.
