Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime review

 

What does a laptop in the post-PC era look like? Is it an ultrabook with familiar internals and software in a dramatically slimmed-down shell? Or is it possible to use a modern mobile OS like...

Great design, build, and size ; Bright, high quality SuperIPS+ screen ; Tablet can run for over nine hours ; Superb gaming performance

Poor app selection and quality ; Software isn’t completely optimized for the faster processor ; Browser performance can be sluggish

The laptop of the post-PC world needs the software to match it

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201

 

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is the best Honeycomb tablet available, but the OS lacks the tablet-optimized apps to compete with the iPad.

Blazing fast. Great gaming. Cool keyboard dock.

Some bugs. Honeycomb lacks both apps and a good app store.

The Android interface also doesn't have a quick way to easily flip between several windows. You can say the same about iOS, of course. But I have the Prime next to my Windows 7 netbook right now, and I'm missing the fluidity of being able to have two...

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime Review

 

The $499 Eee Pad Transformer Prime is not only the fastest tablet we've tested, but also one of the best-looking, most functional, and--because of its AppLocker--the most family-friendly. We were wowed by its brilliant IPS display, razor-thin design,...

Super-bright IPS Screen, Speedy quad-core Processor, Slim and stylish design, Keyboard dock has great feel

Weak, quiet audio, Tiny power button, Not readable in direct sunlight

Review Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 Tablet/MID

 

Quad core tablet. The new Asus tablet with a keyboard dock is one

Newest mobile quad core chip; Very good screen; Elegant and robust aluminum case; Latest Android 4.0.3; Extended options thanks to keyboard dock

GPS only works sporadically; No 3G/UMTS; Only one speaker

First, the much less expensive predecessor, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v as an attractive tablet with the last Tegra 250 chip. Of course, the latest version of the genre founder, the iPad 2. And the Asus Eee Pad Slider as...

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime Review

 

Summary: The Transformer Prime is the best marriage of screen and keyboard we've seen in a tablet. The quad-core Tegra 3 processor gives it professional-level performance, and battery life is excellent too.

Superb screen, Great battery life, Comes with a keyboard dock that adds a second battery, Supports USB and SD card expansion via the keyboard dock

Not available without keyboard dock, Tends to topple over if you tap the screen when it's docked to the keyboard, Short of business software, No integrated mobile broadband option

Asus Transformer Prime

 

Asus Transformer Prime is a successor to the original Transformer tablet. It's thinner and the first Android device powered by NVidia's quad-core processor. In addition, it also comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen, optional keyboard dock, 8-megapixel...

Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape

Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port

Asus Transformer Prime Review

 

This is by far the best Android tablet money can buy. It has almost everything going for it - excellent performance, premium finish, brilliant display, excellent battery life and a full fledged keyboard that converts this into a netbook (ummm, actually...

Very thin and light, Built very well, Quite powerful, Excellent battery life, Keyboard dock is infinitely useful

Not many apps still can use the quad-core CPU, Isn't very balanced with the keyboard hooked up

Asus Transformer Prime TF201: A Tablet With A Higher Calling

 

Apple's new iPad is turning heads, but it's not the only compelling choice. Four months after its introduction, Asus' Transformer Prime TF201 shows us that tablets aren't exclusively content consumption devices. Some make it easier to get work done!

ASUS Transformer Prime (TF201) Tegra 3 Tablet and Keyboard Dock Review

 

When we first heard about the best name ever for a tablet PC, or possibly any component, we had visions of a robotic looking blue and red case… sadly, well kind of, this proved not to be and instead Asus released a sleek looking update to the original...

As ever we start off with the build quality of the Transformer Prime. Like the Transformer TF101 this device has been put together well and with great attention to detail. Our device has been subjected to some pain and even with a few dents there was...
