I am no way an Apple Fanboy..I purchased the Asus TF 300 Transformer and sent it back to Best Buy, the tablet had unacceptable level of light seeping through the screen. I switched it out the Asus Prime with dock. First of all the GPS never hooked up, the wifi radio has limited range, the supplied browser was slow, the tablet would shut down and restart for no apparent reason. There is other problems but the tablet has been reboxed and going back this weekend.
Yes I purchased the IPad 3 after playing with the wife's IPad 2. Well it's a keeper. So far this device has been flawless, the quality of construction is excellent, In addition I can FaceTime with her when needed...but not to often. Lol.
I was really hoping the Transformer was ready for Primetime. Not yet ....

Displays have migrated from 4X3 to 16X9 and 16X10 over the years. 6X9 or 16X10 are pretty much the standard now a days. iPad is the only current device that still stuck at the old aspect ratio. Even the new standalone GPS are wide screen. Android tablets are simply keeping up with the time.
Resolution on both TF700T and ipad3 are excellent. 224ppi vs 264ppi. At those ppi on a 10" display, you can't tell the difference unless they're put under the microscope or compared both side by side under a magnifying glass.
All recently released Android devices released within the last 1-2 years unofficially supports SDXC up to the current largest SD or MicroSD card. The largest SD card right now is the Lexar 128GB and the largest MicroSDXC is the Sandisk 64GB. The card has to be formatted correctly. Once external storage card is inserted, the total memory is increases by the size of the card. You can easily have a 256GB TF700T tablet 64GB internal+64GB MicroSDXC+128GB SDXC on the dock. If that's not enough, there's a tablet with 250GB SSD with MicroSD slot.
When iPhone released the 4S, Apple bragged about how bad ass its camera is. That same camera technology has migrated to the iPad. Apple bragged about that too. Now that Android Tablets released cameras that're even better than the iPad suddenly it's irrelevant?
LED flash is not only for the camera. There are apps that can turn it into flashlights.
Stereo speakers on electronic devices may not seem important to some but I would rather have a good set of built in speakers than tinny glorified headphone speakers or have to carry a separate external speakers.
Faster CPU may not necessarily be required to run the Android OS. However, it is the progress of technology. It is what's available now. The iPhone 3GS is perfectly fine running the latest iOS5.X. Why does the 4S have a CPU that's twice as fast? It doesn't take a lot of CPU power to run virtual assistance nor video calls. The 3GS's CPU power is more than capable of doing both if it has the hardware and the software. Europe and Asia have had video calls on dumb phones for years before Apple got into the mobile business.
The GPS and WiFi issues were fixed with theTF300T. Don't tell me that iPhone 4 had perfect receptions.
Adobe Flash may be dead but there are still sites out there running it. Android is capable of displaying sites with both Flash and HTML5.
The dock is optional. You don't have to buy it for the TF700T to work. If you do buy it, it doubles the operation time, adds full size USB and full size SD card, and a hardware keyboard and mouse pad.
The USB ports on Android tablets are OTG. They can be either host or client. The USB adapter for the iPad won't work with external storage devices.
Transferring files on Android is easier than iPad. You just plug in the USB and the host will see the Android tablet or phone as an external drive. Can't say the same for iPad. But I'm sure there's an app for that.
Multitasking on both devices are questionable. Why does youtube or video stop playing when you hit the home button on both devices? If it's true multitasking the video would continue to play even if it's minimized.
Customization is the heart of Android OS. It's simple. If you don't want to customize it, you don't have to. If you want to customize it, there's a lot more you can do than an iPad. If you don't like the original keyboard? install a new keyboard. If you don't like the original UI, install a new UI. If you want to customize the
iPad, you have to jailbrake it.
If Apple released an iPad with 16X9 AR and one with 4X3 AR and both are 10" Retina Display, would you still choose the 4X3 aspect ratio?
If Apple released an iPad that accepts a memory card and one that doesn't accept a memory card, would you still choose the one without the card slot?
If Apple released an iPad with a 5MP camera and one with PureView, would you still choose the 5MP camera?
If Apple released an iPad with a Xenon flash with LED light and one without, would you still choose the one withtout any flash?
If Apple released an iPad with stereo speakers and one with mono speaker, would you still choose the mono speaker?
If Apple released an iPad with quad core CPU and one with dual core CPU, would you still choose the one with dual core?
If Apple released an iPad that supports flash and HTML5 and one that only supports HTML5, would you still choose the one that only supports HTML5?
If Apple released an iPad with optional dock that could potentially turn it into a MacBook Air that runs on iOS instead of OSX and one with no dock options, would you till choose the one without the docking option?
If Apple released an iPad with USB-OTG port built in that supports external storage and one that requires an adapter that doesn't support external storage, would you still choose the one that requires an adapter?
If Apple released an iPad with iOS that natively turns it into external drive when plugged into a host machine and one with iOS that doesn't, would you still choose the one that doesnt?
If Apple released an iPad that supports true multitasking and one that suspends the app when minimized, would you still choose the one that only suspends?
If Apple released an iPad that supports widgets and icons and one that only supports icons, would you still choose the one that only supports icons?
If you choose no to any of the questions, then you just bought an Android tablet. Since you refuse to buy Android, you're only buying what ever Apple is feeding you regardless how technologically behind it is.
instead of flaming me, please convinced me that the ipad is better than the TF700T in a civilized matter.
Just to remind everyone. This is an iPad forum for those people who like the iPad, enjoy using it and wish to share their experience and knowledge of the iPad with others. As such, and as a general rule, we don't really have to convince anyone that the iPad is better. It is what we have chosen to buy and what we use.

The people here at this forum, by purchasing and using an iPad, have demonstrated their conviction that the iPad is the best choice for them at this time. Please respect that decision.
As this topic cannot be resolved and will only be an echo tunnel of talking points - this thread is closed. Thank you for your understanding.
