08 Jun 12 ASUS Transformer Prime revisited: Still best Android tablet

I few weeks ago I bought a Transformer TF300. It’s the cheaper successor to the Prime, boasting similar specs, but made of plastic rather than aluminum. The TF700, which comes out later this summer will be the higher end model, for those who are willing to spend an extra $200 for better materials and a screen that promises to give the iPad 3 a run for its money.

At any rate, I am very, very happy with this machine. It is very fast, very stable, and very, very portable. They keyboard dock makes it a viable laptop replacement in many ways. The only thing missing at the moment is a killer office suite, but with Google’s purchase of QuickOffice I suspect that will change soon enough. And I do find that I use this thing about as much on the dock as off, and that certain functions that I would normally perform with a mouse/trackpad are actually much more intuitive with your fingers. In fact, the other day my wife handed me her laptop for something or other and I found myself instinctively reaching to the screen to scroll around.

I’m still eager to see what Windows 8 brings to the table, as far as tablets go, but for now, I have absolutely no regrets.
