As the tablet with the most units shipped to date next to the iPad according to DigiTimes, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is emerging as the sleeper hit in the tablet market so far. Now, the coveted Transformer and detachable docking station are now available at Amazon.com.
The Asus Transformer felt like a solid machine with a sophisticated, metallic finish. It certainly didn’t feel as delicate as the ultra-light Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G, which is a good thing for those who need to travel with their slates.
The best part about the convertible tablet-laptop combo from Asus is the relatively low prices for this category. The 16 GB Transformer will only set you back $399; even factoring in the $150 docking station, the combo only costs $50 more than the 16 GB iPad 2 Wi-Fi ($499) but with significantly more functionality. For a hundred dollars more, the 32 GB Asus slate can be had, whereas the 32 GB iPad 2 Wi-Fi is $599. Checkout the full review of Asus Transformer at TheTechjournal.
