|ASUS Transformer Pad ( TF300T), 10.1 inch, 586 grams (1.29 lbs)|
A good upgrade from the original Transformer. The Transformer Pad TF300T is the first device to use Nvidia's Tegra 3 platform. The optional keyboard has an additional battery which will allow the Transformer to run up to 18 hours, according to Asus. The add-on nature of this keyboard makes the Transformer Prime a versatile device; able to function as a standalone tablet, or as a laptop-style productivity device. Unfortunately the tablet itself is somewhat lacking in the port department, with only Micro HDMI, MicroSD, and a proprietary dock connector on the tablet itself. Adding the keyboard will also bring along with it a full-sized SD card reader and full-sized USB 2.0 port, though it would have been nice to see one full-sized USB port on the tablet itself along with another on the keyboard for adding a mouse and an external storage device.
