Excerpt: When i first got my TF700 tablet,i was excited. It was fairly fast, had great screen resolution, but in time I noticed a few issues - battery life - even with the extra keyboard that has an additional battery is terrible, then the biggest issue - the keyboard docks with the tablet and closes like a laptop. I went to open it and the screen cracked. This is after owning for 5 months. Evidently the glass is very thin and not as durable as on other tablets.
Pros: App Availablity, Operating System, Web Browsing, WiFi
Excerpt: I purchased the TF700T in Dec and have been disappointed. It is laggy under Ice Cream Sandwich. After Jelly Bean update, it was a little snappier, but frequently crashes and reboots when watching youtube or locally stored videos for 10-30 minutes, and browsing with Chrome while listening to Pandora for 10-30 minutes. I tried multiple factory resets and cold boots, but crashing still occurs.
Summary: Waste of my money! The tablet is unresponsive and has memory issues that cannot be resolved by the manufacturer. I had to root the device and install a custom operating system. It wasted a lot of my time and wasn't worth the amount I spent. Don't buy it!
Summary: ...I would not have bought this. The problem isn't the Transformer: the whole concept of undocking / redocking the screen to the keyboard is brilliant. Having the potential to be a (mini) laptop... a tablet... a camera... everything your phone does (except make calls) but on a larger screen - and most things your average notebook does. And I can't get on with it at all. It's not Windows op-sys, and I'm not very techie.
Underspecked, manufacturing faults and 'fragile' + easy to root &co.

Summary: Well it was a toss up between getting a laptop and a tablet with a keyboard and I thought tablets had been out long enough, it runs linux, glped software allowed so it should be a good option. First the good points: The Tegra 3 processor is nice and fast Screen is good clarity and brightness HDMI out works well, and if you play videos it will send 'just' the video to the TV.
