Based on what we’ve seen from the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, we can safely say that Asus has produced one of the best products available on the tablet PC market and one surely primed as a new benchmark in the technology.
The Transformer Prime is distinguished by the full keyboard with docking port, allowing the user to morph the tablet PC into a proper laptop computer. Happily, the hardware involved here is solid of construction and seems well durable.
Beyond the Transformer’s keyboard – certain to become a must among some users – nearly all the specs of the tablet get high marks. Like Asus’ first-generation Transformer, the Transformer Prime could satisfy as a tablet alone with impressive specs. The embedded operating system is Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Battery time is extended to 18-plus hours when docked, and it’s all powered by a superfast NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor.
In terms of design, the Transformer Prime measures 10.4” x 7.1” x 0.29” (263mm x 180.8mm x 8.3mm) and weighs about 1.3 pounds (0.586 kg), putting this tablet among the lightest and thinnest available, in a class with the Apple iPad 3 and the latest Samsung Galaxy Tab. The touchscreen delivers excellent picture and video quality, and is bolstered by Corning gorilla glass. The Transformer Prime includes ports for micro SD cards and micro HDMI, plus a notably good 8 MP auto-focus camera with flash.
The final analysis: It’s quite difficult to say anything negative at all about the Asus Eee Transformer Prime. This device will surely sell well among every type of tablet user from casual to hardcore and is worthy of such attention – one of the best products out there.
