Summary: My transformer arrived this morning, very very impressed so far. I don't have an aerial so i'm watching tvcatchup on my hd tv via the transformer and a mini hdmi cable, ive chucked a couple of films on a memory card to watch and i'm playing a snes emulator on a full screen hd tv to name but a few first day antics. If you are planning to get one, i'd advise you to check out some transformer forums for hints/tips/app and user guides. They've helped me quite a lot so far.
Summary: I know everyone seems to think the eeepad is the best thing since sliced bread - so have I been unlucky? To start it was a revelation. The battery just went on and on. But, after 2 weeks, suddenly it started to turn itself off (I had been charging it before anyone states the obvious) and wouldn't come on again.
Summary: Having spent ages reviewing various tablets and visiting various shops to try them out, I bought the Asus Eee Pad Transformer with the optional keyboard. As someone pushing fifty so not really all that technical I've found the entire experience really rather good. Its simple to set up, Flash allows access to sites with video, an area that put Me off the iPad that and the Salesman trying to sell it to Me based on an app that shows the stars at night, I thought that a...
Pros: Netbook/Tablet Choice, Huge Battery Life, Simple To Use & Very Productive In Daily Use
Summary: Let me start by saying that I am not indeed an Apple fanboy! I have an Android phone and I love it & all it can do. And herein lies the problem with the eee Pad. Yes the screen is bright and clear (just watch out for notorious backlight bleeds), yes the unit itself is well constructed and nice to hold. The problem lies with Honeycomb. I was running 3.2 and it was glitchy to the point of distraction. My HTC Desire running Android 2.2 is more fluid & stable.
Summary: This should of come out years ago. Android just beating Apple big time for me. Love the touch keyboard for people that didnt buy it with a keyboard for cheaper cause it is also great as its nice big touch buttons so you haven't needed to worry about needing the keyboard but the keyboard is obv great as it has built in battery inside keyboard and more usb ports but the battery is pretty well anyway but if your doing alot of stuff then yeah consider keyboard
Summary: As a student who travels back and for to uni on the train, I needed something that would help in making documents, helping with looking over uni notes and lectures, and to generally help with the inevitable boredom on a train. I did some research and found this was one of the best tablet PCs about. Although the iPad/2 is considered the 'best', it doesnt seem to be compatiable with Microsoft programs such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel.
Summary: I had a long play with one of these in PC World and I've decided on getting it. I have to disagree with CNET's review with it says it cant handle hi def video. I tested some youtube 1080p on the store's wifi network and it played fine. One particular wildlife video I watched was a little juddery but I think that was down to the connection.
Pros: Display, keyboard, battery life, alot better than an Ipad.
