Good By far the best bit about the Eee Pad Transformer is the design. If you don't have the keyboard attached, you'd never know it was different from any other tablet. When you do hook up the keyboard, it looks like any other mini laptop, save for a slightly bulkier but incredibly tough aluminium hinge that also acts as the dock. The keyboard is excellent considering the compact size, with the palm re...
Bad Although the Eee Pad Transformer is one of our favourite tablets to date, it's not without issues. The Android operating system is arguably the biggest glitch – it's good, but it's not as impressive as the iOS operating system found on the iPad 2. At times, it can be unintuitive to use, and still feels better suited to smartphones than tablets. That said, although some features weren't where we e...

Bottom line We were surprised by the Asus Eee Pad Transformer; it’s easy to shrug it off as a desperate attempt at marrying an Android tablet the the keyboard-based convenience of a netbook. But it charms, and is a great standalone tablet - more stylish and stable...

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 tablet doesn't stand on its own. But when paired with its matching keyboard dock, the Transformer morphs into a tablet that strikes an admirable balance between productivity and entertainment. This Android 3.0 tablet...
Bottom line In spite of my minor complaints about its design, this tablet is worthy of consideration. Asus's aggressive pricing, coupled with its above-average display, make the Transformer a serious contender. Even if you factor in the extra cost of the docking s...

Of all the Android tablets out at the moment, the Asus Transformer is the most notable. So called for it's ability to turn into something of an Android netbook with an attachable keyboard. Can it break loose from the mediocrity off Android tablets so f...
Bottom line On the whole the tablet is the best yet produced to feature Android. It's not going to take down the iPad in it's prime. There is enough jazz to keep you coming back to it if you choose and for some it will give the iPad a bit of a sideswipe. Obviously...

This challenger to the Apple iPad comes in two forms – a stand alone touch screen tablet or a tablet plus docking keyboard. It runs the newest version of Android, v3.1. The screen dimensions are 1280×800 dots and at 22×13.5cm it is longer and narrower...
Good This is a serious challenge to the dominant iPad. The Android operating system is superior to iOS, with true file management. The touch screen is smooth and responsive.
Bad The combined tablet and keyboard is heavy.
Bottom line We have been running the Eee Pad and the iPad side by side, comparing them as devices for photo storage and display. The ASUS is close, but not quite. The screen aspect ratio, which is perfect for videos, is simply wrong for photos. Even though the p...
