    Finally, a tablet that is well-made without being ridiculously overpriced. Asus might actually ship more than 10k of these.

    As a current owner of the TF201 Prime and having WiFi GPS issues, lets me just say Asus is far from the good company everyone sees them as. They have yet to admit having a full metal back causes issues. Really Asus youd think something basic like that you'd know.

    My advice stay far away from this and the company all together. They'll take your money and run. Here's looking forward to the ipad mini when it comes out.
  6. to get on the wifi/gps problems ..... did you read ita was plastic back ???

    Accounting for VAT and exchange rate, the original TF101 Pad still costs slightly more here in the UK... I want my 379 dollar pad (284 GBP after VAT)!
  8. >$100 = I'm in

    As a current owner of a Transformer Prime, I have no Wi-Fi issues, hitting upwards of 80% of my 30 Mbit connection at all times, no problems using the Wi-Fi at school, or the free municipal Wi-Fi in my city. So perhaps not everyone shares your unfortunate experience.

    My advice is to stay away from anecdotal stories and read the aggregate user reviews, and trusted tech sites on the web.

  11. Nice article, but one thing,
    The picture is of Asus Infinity, not the 300 series and can be somewhat confusing.
    You might want to change It :)
