Best Bang for your Buck Tablet!
By Dada Chuckie

About Me Business Professional, Parent
While ASUS is not as popular as Apple, it is quite hard to ignore the fact that you get so much more in terms of technology and hardware at a lesser cost than an iPAD. There i nothing wrong with the iPad, its a great simple machine. But for those who feel a bit restricted with what you can do with an iPad, this may be the solution for you. Think of this as an iPad that you can customize more for your needs, albeit its not as straight-forward as an Apple Operating System. It encourages you to explore and do your own "tweaking".I use this mostly for web browsing /email (which is how im writing this review now) as well as for some fun and entertainment. Netflix is great on the tablet and the added Keyboard Charging Dock is a huge plus because of the extended battery life! It unleashes the tablet's full potential from being a fun sized portable entertainment device to a grown-up business like medium.Something to take note of is that the tablet itself can support USB connectivity but you have to use its proprietary cable. The keyboard is the one with the straight USB port. The speakers could have been improved as well, as it can be quite low since it's coming from just one side of the tablet.To sum up: Fast Processor, Top of the line Graphics, Great flexibility, great accessory (keyboard dock), huge internal memory, front and back facing camera with flash, USB connectivity, Good battery life (especially with Dock)Not so great: Speakers could be better, Keyboard charging dock feels a bit too expensive as an accessory, The glare from sunlight is sometimes too much even when set to "outdoors" setting.I highly recommend testing this out if you can before purchasing. The Android Operating System may not be for all of us, especially if you're used to the Apple way of things. But give it a chance to let you explore and customize, on top of all the bells and whistles that you get for the price, there's a very good chance you will love this!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is great!

About Me Parent, Technically Challenged
I am not Tech Savvy but I must say Asus did an excellent job! My daughter has the Ipad 2 but I find her using my tablet more. I prefer it better than the Ipad 2. It's easy to use. I have the Asus keyboard and the Logitech tablet mouse and it works like a laptop. Don't need a case or screen protector. It's built sturdy and the screen is easy to wipe. Overall, I am very happy with my Asus Transformer Prime.
I waited for about three weeks. I had to follow up on the third week when the supply was available and found out that ABT did not have my payment info in the system even though I gave my payment info when I placed the order. They immediately shipped my order. The customer and technical support were helpful.

Excellent tablet that looks and feels like an Ipad2 but with more connectivity options. Android 4.0 is an great OS with a great browser in Chrome. I would recommend this tablet to anyone who wants the best tablet out there.
I picked it up in the store and it was very convenient.
Droid compatibility makes this great!

ASUS Transformer Prime

About Me Technically Challenged
As a high scool student I use it for researching information on the web. It has excellent web browsing capabilities. The large screen make it functional like a lap top but does not carry the bulk of one. The graphics are great and game playing is a blast and watching youtube is way cooler on it then on my smart phone. I also like listening to music while doing my home work and it multitasks nicely. Not being overly technically ssavy I haven't run into any limitations that I recognize.
Abt was an excellent place to purchase, the service was very professional. Representive on the phone took the time to verify that item was in stock even though the website was showing out of stock( this was the hottest tablet this season). The price was at the recomended MSRP and not jacked up because of the scarcity( Amazon had these listed at a 30-50% mark up). Shipping was fast and reasonably priced. The docking station was on back order, but was recieved a week and a half after the order which was quick considering the limitied availability. Overall a very pleasant experience and would recomend them to otheres as well.
Everything About this is amazing. It puts the ipad out of business
Best Tablet on the Market
from Taylor Mill, Ky
Outperforms the iPad 2. Has better graphics and with the ICS operating system is an awesome performer.
Exactly what I wanted.

About Me Electrical engineer, Tech Savvy
Great everyday "Laptop". When comdined with the keyboard, it functions as a top of the line ultrabook/netbook. This is my first tablet and couldn't be happier. I have noted that it is significantly faster, thinner, and all around better performing than any other tablet on the market. I highly reccomend this tablet.
