The portability of the Transformer is enhanced by its 0.5" thickness and 1.5 lb weight.

As you turn the Transformer in your hand, the G-sensor automatically changes the screen from portrait to landscape mode.

    ASUS Transformer TF101 Reviews

    32GB Eee Pad Transformer Tablet is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 103.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect compliment to a laptop + Droid I debated adding another computing device to our already crowded desktop/laptop(3)/HTPC/Boxee Box environment, but I have to say: Ever since Santa ... delivered this tablet, I've been using it almost exclusively!The UI is lightning fast. The video is crisp, clear and bright. The battery lasts a full day. And with 32GB of flash memory and a microSD slot, there's no sign of running out of space any time soon. The tablet has already upgraded itself to Android 3.1, which brings more speed and usability. The built-in ASUS apps and widgets are very well designed.Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase, and can't wait for the optional keyboard to arrive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great Tablet The Asus Transformer is a great Tablet. It is fast and the battery last. The resolution is magnificent. I converted a video I had and played it on the Asus and it was perfect. It works out of the box and no trouble. I compared it side by side with the Xoom, that I had access to, and it was better as well as cheaper. The person who lent me his Zoom for comparison wishes he would have waited for the Asus. Not only is it better but it is cheaper. The on screen keyboard works great and is easy to use. I even have the Hebrew keyboard working. The Asus Apps are great and easy to use and I love the Cloud App which allows me to access my desktop PC from the tablet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tablet Tablet is very easy to use they keep it up to date constantly. Programs are easy to use i think overall it is a better tablet than most out their. However I know its new so the amount of apps are a bit light. The real only downside is their version of a video player is terrible and the volume is a little quiet for my liking. Battery life is good, ease of use is good, I like the fact that i can turn it into a net book easily. Screen is nice and bright, as well as the corning gorilla glass is awesome. If you want a good tablet and you dont want apple go with the Transformer it has everything that mac is missing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from DON'T BUY THE IPAD. Buy this TABLEThave play moviesVery versatile gadget. Very responsive, great graphic display, I got the 32 GB which is plenty of on board storage, especially if you get the docking station which i think is a must. Android has a lot of programs/APPS but it may be awhile before they get the TABLET OS caught up.i likethat i can view Flash based web sites which Ipad can't which is very important with my work in real estate. Plays music videos,PDF files, all the stuff that all tabs do but this works with so many programs. i even got NETFLIX working. The HDMI output was nice to play movies and NETFLIX on our PlasmaTV on vacation. B&H Photo have a great price ...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Got this Eee pad for my wife for Christmas and its been a total hit! She has hardly put it down since and if she does, either myself or our 8 yr old son has picked it up! All the apps and games were easy to install and within minutes your playing a game or reading a good book or playing on the internet. The video camera has also been a great option for us. Camera, video, internet all in one without having to run around for all those different devices. I was a little concerned because of or wi-fi not being real good in our area however we haven't had any issues and everything is quick and easy!! GREAT buy for the price, with a ton of memory!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from ASUS tablet 3.1 New tablet user, so still learning. Good things - attractive presentation, nice size, quick response, multiple applications Not so great things - No hardcopy manual or on line electronic manual, makes learning a tedious process. Some apps I've downloaded are not capable for Android 3.1 version, so ask before you buy. The recharger plug-in is on the bottom of unit and is obstructed when tablet is in its case. Would have worked better if plug in was on the side. I bought this for aviation purposes, and it seems like the ipad (Apple) would have been a better choice for aviation app availability. Overall - Good product, fair price

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for the price! The Transformer is one in a long line of portable computers, PDA's, and smartphones I've owned, going clear back to the RadioShack Model 100 in the early 80's. This is by far the lightest of the large-screen devices, and is lighter even than some pocket devices. The screen is bright and easy to read from or play an arcade game on. The WiFi works much better than the Iconia Tab I originally purchased and returned two weeks later. I have a 32gb class 4 microsd card installed, and can easily have hours of video and music stored without even making a serious dent in it! By all means, I would recommend this to someone looking for a portable word processor, entertainment device, and book reader.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Tablet Tablet has a good solid feel to it and is light enough to easily carry around on public transport. Make sure to update to the 3.1 Honeycomb version, and also update the Dock firmware when prompted to improve mouse and keyboard responsiveness. Using as a tablet without the Dock is great, but I find for web browsing using the Dock is the winner for me. Unit by itself has great battery life, since getting unit 2 weeks ago I've only charged it twice. With Dock attached it lasts even longer.
