    Quick update, I went to bestbuy to buy the tf300 I wanted to test it out, but right next to this was the prime. After trying out the screens the tf300 was to dull, and nothing I could do to make it better. While the prime looked a looked a heck of a lot better after reading on it for a few minutes, my eyes started to strain... I have to have a hd display now! Thanks iPad... Lol
    There is nothing wrong the the tf300's screen...it is just not a super IPS screen like that on the Prime. The prime is made to be used outdoors in sunlight...if the screen was turned up, then no wonder your eye started to strain...the tf300 is a good tablet...might be the best Android around now...with the possible exception of the Acer A510.

    I currently have both an iPad 2 and a transformer. From an app perspective, the iPad has the transformer beat hands down. The OS is super smooth, fast, stable, and the apps on it such as pages, nocs, and notability are nothing short of amazing. There are definitely usable apps on the transformer, but they are nothing compared to the iPad. Where the transformer excels is more of a hardware/OS standpoint. The fact that you have access to the file system on android is so amazing. One file, multiple programs. No need to use iTunes to transfer files. Far superior offline file management support. And that's not even talking about the keyboard with the extended battery. For me it came down to apps though. There are certain apps I can't live without, and that's what swung me to my iPad.

    I really liked the transformer, I can't wait for the infinity. For now, the screen was to dim, might have just been the fact that we were I'm the store, and the store lighting was what through it off? For now though Ill stick with the iPad 3.

    My eyes are very sensitive, and the text is what hurt my eyes, not the brightness. The brightness was needed to see the screen.

    What advantage has the file system been to you?

    I thought it was a "must have" too, but then I opened good reader, saw the options to open the same document in a number of programs, and wondered what the advantage actually was with the file system..

    Plugging a USB stick in and transferring files was nice, but...Dropbox has worked great since I switched..

    Just curious..

    The thing about Dropbox and to some extent good reader, they are both cloud based. The benefit of a file system is that I can transfer files physically with no need for the cloud. If I need to open a file and I'm nowhere near data, I can still open it. If I need to transfer files and have no sync cable,I eject my memory card and save it to that. Switching files, especially big ones between my phone and tablet is super easy. The iPad is no slouch in the file manager dept, especially considering where they used to be, but it still has a long way to go before being on a dedicated file systems level.

    I was also in the choice dilemma but after doing the research on the airstash and the goflex wifi I concluded that the iPad is the better of the two choices. Then there are the apps - iPad just has so much more to choose from. Just got a new iPad and am now learning how to make it do what I want.

    I have the iPad 3, but really looking at the $370 transformer with the dock $150

    Im just not sure how the resolution would pan out now that my eyes have been used to the iPad display...

    I have a galaxy note but can't really compare the two..

    The transformer prime does have a better screen resolution than the iPad 2.

    Yes, it indeed does. Most all 10.1 inch Android tablets do. But nothing is on tap to beat the iPad 3, AFAIK.
