Not good for the general public

Summary: Have all my college notes and everthying on USB and can't even use it on Asus T...that sucks.
Pros: Great tablet, fast response.
Cons: No USB port for the general public and that means no USB sound bar, no usb movie, no college notes you saved. All you can do is surf the web. Asus, you been in the biz for a long time, why no USB? Did you just hire a stupid project manager?
ASUS Transformer TF101 & Dock Redefine the Netbook

Summary: The ASUS TF101, Polaris Office, and the keyboard/dock make it the best available Android tablet for business.
Pros: Terrific Value Thin, Light, & Powerful Beautiful Screen Tons of Storage (32GB Plus microSDXC Slot; Full-Size SDXC Slot on Dock) Mini-HDMI Out Awesome Keyboard/Dock Touchpad Unparalleled Battery Life (16+ Hours With Dock) Slick Honeycomb Interface Flash Support Polaris Office
Cons: Uneven Backlighting (Especially From Bottom) No USB Ports on Tablet No Included Mini-HDMI Cable No Dock Battery Meter (XDA Has a Widget Fix) When Docking the TF101, Latch Button Can Be Finicky Not All Honeycomb Options Installed (e.g., Text-to-Speech) No Honeycomb Documentation (e.g., How to Ejec...
Summary: I feel like I am using a real PC with this tablet, especially with the keyboard attachment. Very powerful with all the android applications in marketplace (not all compatible).
Pros: Amazing. Updated via internet to Android Honeycomb v3.1 just after midnight on 1st day ownership (notification required). Very impressive screen, great battery life, lots of support websites and help. This is the fastest response android device I have seen or used. I have used PdaNet and bluetoot...
Cons: Chargers seem to be a critical component. Hard to find replacements at the moment. Requires USB 3.0 extension cable to extend the length (A male to A female) which are rare (but sold on Newegg). Hackers have made do-it-yourself chargers for car and AC but I do not like that alternative. Some char...
Summary: I have been dying for a tablet since the 90's and this is finally one worth paying the money for. I have been watching the tablet market for a year waiting for the right one to come along and with the inclusion of the keyboard dock (in the mail as I write this) its a powerhouse of a unit.
Pros: Could not be happier with this purchase. Tablet is fast, the build is solid (having read some of the reviews which said the build quality seemed questionable), this device is unbelievable and it is everything I had hoped for. The screen is really nice, I really love the brightness and the clarity...
Cons: My only complaint is that it is a little bit heavy, which is nice most of the time, but some times it tends to feel a little big. I cannot notice the difference compared to the ip@d so I would say its right on PAR for what a tablet should be.
A tablet that will put the overpriced IPAD2 to shame!

Summary: Apple Fan boys/gals should be glad with the availability of TF. This tablet is going to give ipad a run for the money and Apple will eventually be forced to lower their prices to stay competitive. Diehard Apple fans are going to remain loyal to their brand.
Pros: * Very light and portable * 3.1 update available as of 1/6/2011 * Good battery life * Very responsive * Priced very competitively * Eggcellent viewing angle
Cons: * screen is a fingerprint magnet * a few minor quirks in the OS which needs to be worked out * does not have a good case available in the market yet (as of 6/1/2011)
Pros: Quality*: Item is constructed quite well, feels good and looks good. However, if you hold on the other side (power button UP) it feel slike the screen is coming off.... or many is my unit Audio: Loud enough to hear it from half way an empty room and loud enough to hear in in a mid level room with...
Cons: * Quality I think its my unit but it feels like I can just break this thing if I bend it Android: 3.0 is SLOW I am sorry but its no quite there yet, it force closes now and then, sometimes its unresponsive. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ASUS ITS ANDROID. MSI has annouced a 299 ISP LED Backlight Teg...
Summary: Tablets are wonderful for browsing and email. But if you need to do some "real" work, a keyboard is a necessity. Add the docking station, and this tablet becomes a fully capable netbook (and this is a great keyboard).
Pros: Phenomenal hardware design. Great operating system. The dockable keyboard turns a great tablet into a netbook replacement. No more carting around two different devices.
Cons: Android honeycomb is still a little short of expectations. Even with the recent 3.1 update, there are still some things that do not quite work as I hoped: external display options are very limited. Software options in the Market are also limited. But I expect the latter (at least) to change as ad...
Summary: I saw 4 negative reviews on this tablet... all from "NA" which actually are 2 reviews the same guy double posted. So one guy double posted 2 bad reviews... why? I have to wonder if we're seeing competitors try to muddy the waters here.
Pros: Excellent screen quality, very fast, newest updates from Asus provide a very smooth user experience. When used with the docking station I'm actually getting the advertised battery life... 16+ hours... 32gb, with sd expansion, dual tegra, IPS screen, GPS, wifi, BT, etc... tablets just don't get mu...
Summary: Regarding Android multi-user friendliness: Android was initially built as a personal device OS. You were supposed to be able enter some personal account information so that when you hit the GMail button, for example, it would go straight to your inbox.
Pros: -Not Apple -Solid construction -Fast processor -Option for keyboard dock -Great battery Life -Working microSD slot -Very Responsive volume rocker and power button -Great battery life -Very good on-screen keyboard -Branding is kept minimal
Cons: -Not a ton of budget accessory support (since it's not an Apple device) -Android isn't yet built to make the tablet "multi-user friendly" -No USB port on the tablet -Not much add-on support with stock browser, Firefox not yet fully functional (thus no easy way to block scripts/ads in web browsing)
