Asus Tf300  -  Top Performance Tablet at An Affordable Price

With the advent of the iPad, an increasing number of consumers have been keen on acquiring tablets as part of their daily tech arsenal. Although Apple may have obtained the largest share in the tablet market, there are also other brands that are worthy contenders challenging the Apple giant. One such brand is Asus. Asus have been known as one of the leading tablet makers in the world. Just recently, Asus released its newest version of its android tablet, the Asus TF300 or the Asus Transformer Pad TF300. Similar to its predecessor, the Prime, the Transformer Pad showcases many features that the iPad does not have.

On the outside, the Asus tablet exhibits a plastic finish which is substantially different with the Prime which has a metal finish to it. However, for its lower price, the plastic finish still does not seem to feel cheap but rather sleek. The screen measures at about 10.1 inches and the tablet weighs 635 grams. It measures 180.8x263x9.9mm, possesses an 8 megapixel camera, and has a Tegra 3 1.2GHz quad-core. The tablet also runs on the Android 4.x OS or the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). However, besides the specs, the Asus TF300 features an accessory that serves as its major selling point: its keyboard dock.

The tablet fits into a keyboard that can be separately bought at around $150. For some this may seem a steep price but for others purchasing the keyboard dock might be just a step away from really transforming this pad into a netbook. Aside from allowing the user to type more efficiently, the keyboard dock also prolongs the battery life of the tablet to 12 hours. Tech bloggers have commented that though the trackpad responses quickly, the same cannot be said for the actual keys. Some users might notice a slight lag between the typing speed of the user and the actual appearance of the letters on screen.

Also, the weight of the tablet makes it susceptible to tilting over when it is placed on the keyboard dock. Nevertheless, if one is just using the tablet for internet surfing purposes, some Photoshop editing and a bit of word editing, then this tablet may just work as good as a netbook. However, if one needs to do a thesis or a 5000 word essay, then this tablet might be challenge to work on. Despite its shortcomings, the Asus TF300 is truly an innovative piece of technology that has the capacity to rival the ever popular iPad.
