Excerpt: The popular Asus Transformer TF701T has a retail price of $649, but look hard online and it can be had for about $550. Despite being around since last September, this is still one exceptional tablet, combining the same Nvidia Tegra 4 CPU found inside the Tegra Note 7 with a 10.1-inch screen and impressive 2560×1600-pixel resolution.
Summary: All-inclusive. Asus continuously refreshes its Transformer Pad series. The new Transformer Pad TF701T is a high-resolution 10-inch tablet that is supposed to compete with notebooks. It is equipped with a powerful Tegra 4 SoC clocked at 1.9 GHz, 32 GB flash storage and an IPS display, so the review unit might also be interesting for business customers.
Pros: Battery Runtime, Application performance, Gaming performance, Bright and high-contrast display, High viewing angle stability, Ports, Build quality, Keyboard dock, The high application performance, the good IPS display and the keyboard dock.
Cons: Mediocre cameras, No LTE or UMTS available, A micro USB port at the tablet itself.
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.
