Conclusion: The Asus Transformer Pad TF701 Android tablet combines a stunning display and impressive performance, but its productivity pitch loses out to more capable and even cheaper Windows alternatives available.
Asus Transformer Pad TF701T – a very attractive hybrid review
27 September 2013
Conclusion: The last nail in the coffin for the competition is the price – the new Transformer Pad TF701T will resell for $399 without the dock and $499 with it for the 32 GB version, which is a very attractive price point for such a device. There’s really no reason to get anything else at this price, except maybe if the new Nexus will pack some extra features – but then again, you won’t get Asus’ know how and traditional reliability with that.

Summary: There is a lot to like about the new Asus Transformer Pad. It is powerful, has a fantastic screen and offers the additional functionality of a keyboard and trackpad. But all of this comes at a price.

Asus Transformer Pad TF701T review: A productive Android tablet/keyboard combo
20 November 2013
Summary: Summary: The 10.1-inch Android-based Transformer Pad TF701T has a decent specification, including a quad-core processor, a high-resolution screen and good battery life from its tablet and keyboard batteries. The design could use a refresh though.
Pros: Excellent 10.1-inch screen, USB 3.0 port, plus SD and MicroSD slots, Tablet and keyboard batteries deliver long life
Cons: Top-heavy build, Proprietary power connector, No mobile broadband option
Summary: Asus has carved out quite the niche for itself with its Transformer range of tablets, which offer users raw power, an honest-to-goodness physical keyboard, a massively extended battery life and, mercifully, a full-fat USB port. The Transformer Prime was the first device that challenged the notion that tablets were consumption-only devices, and Asus’s Transformer Pad Infinity which built upon the Prime’s foundations took Asus’ hybrid vision further.
Pros: Fully integrated keyboard dock and trackpad, Gorgeous 2560 x 1600 display, Ridiculous battery life, Blazing fast Tegra 4 processor
Cons: Chunky bezel, Plastic dock feels cheap, Limited apps for 10in Android tablets
