ASUS Transformer Prime TF201 – better than the iPad2?
As seen on SFTW, the latest version of the ASUS EeePad Transformer Prime, the quad-core TF201 is released this month (Janurary 2012). It features an ultra slim lightweight design, 10.1” display and a keyboard docking station that transforms the tablet into PC mode with a full-size QWERTY keyboard. The most important spec on the new Transformer is the quad-core, 1.3GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor; as Lucy Hedges explained this could make the Asus up to 5 times faster than similar Tablets. It also improves the battery life with Transformer Prime lasting for an amazing 18 hours.
The price quoted on Something for the Weekend was £500, however as the TF201 has just been released there may be limited availability. We’ve had a shop around and found it at Currys and Comet for £499 with free delivery.
The Eee Pad Transformer is the perfect tablet for anyone who wants to enjoy multimedia on the move, but still wish to have easy access to the Web, email, and other productivity applications.
Is it better then an iPad 2 or the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1? TechRadar suggest “the super-thin and light Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime might just be the best tablet ever made.”
