In the tablet PC market, one device in particular means to throw down the gauntlet in terms of performance: the ASUS EeePad Transformer Prime. Its nerve center is the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core CPU, which is able to support on-screen 3D effects and other features.
Another outstanding aspect of the ASUS device is its keyboard dock, which offers an additional battery and supplementary connections – including an SD card slot and a USB 2.0 port. Together, the two batteries provide up to 13 hours of battery life, enough to make even the iPad (nine to 10 hours) blush.
The ASUS EeePad Transformer Prime is a mere 8.5 millimeters thick and weighs around 1.3 pounds (not including the additional battery). It comes with 32 or 64GB of internal storage, but is restricted to wireless LAN connectivity due to its lack of a 3G module.
