Excellent Choice If You Need The Keyboard.

Excerpt: I got this tablet with the keyboard dock a few months back... It came with Android 3.2 which updated to ICS pretty soon. As far as the device goes.. there are newer generations out now, so this might be a bit dated if you need the quad core processors for gaming.. If you are looking for a tablet to surf the net, watch videos, read ebooks and play some basic games, this is still strong enough to get the job done.
Summary: This is really is good for the following reasons:
1) Tough, excellent seamless performance.
2) Good battery life
3) Good software integration of Google and ASUS.
5) The best hardware for the price.
6) Receives software updates.
This has been a wonderful experience, sometimes my dad uses it also on field projects. It has become an small part of our lives. The notable thing is, this is probably the best for this price range, and the Prime the best upgrade.
Excerpt: I have used this tablet for quite a lot of days now. And it truly is an experience to use it. Though it is very expensive, and costly I am thoroughly satisfies with the whole experience. The best part of this device is that it can smartly transform into a portable netbook when a laptop is attached to it. I do not like typing on the touchscreen hence this is a really great solution :) It would have been great if ICS could be added onto the existing honeycomb.
Summary: Sleek and attractive, feels nice and solid with metal backing yet not heavy. Super screen, lovely and clear and very responsive to touch although as should be expected with this type of glass it is highly reflective and shows up finger marks easily. Could buy a screen protector but having read some threads on Transformerforums (how sad am I) decided not to at the moment.
Summary: I've tried out loads of tablets and this is head and shoulders above the rest. It's simple to use, has a very response touchscreen and pretty much does anything and everything you would want from a tablet. HD Videos are crystal clear, photographs look fabulous and there is a massive range of apps that enable you to use the tablet in a variety of ways.
Summary: Beware if you buy this tablet. It used to be a really great product until the recent update to Android 4.0. After this update, the tablet keeps crashing randomly and rebooting itself, rendering it virtually unusuable. My father also has one of these and his has the same issue, and there are widespread reports of these problems on the internet. Do a google search for 'Asus transformer ICS update problems' before you consider buying this product.
Pros: Used to work when it ran Android 3 (Honeycomb)
Cons: Completely broken after latest updates to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
