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.
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..

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.

First of all i have to say That the iPad 3 has THE highest res u can get om this moment..i had transformer Before and have iPad 2 now and transformer cant get even close to THE resolution it has on iPad 2 ,on iPad 2 numbers is really Nice and fast on THE transformer u have polaris office but when it comes to scrolling down with a full sheet it goes very laggy and choppy,
THE prime does indeed ,but he didnt mention the prime..Originally Posted by seneca18
Yes, it indeed does. Most all 10.1 inch Android tablets do. But nothing is on tap to beat the iPad 3, AFAIK.Originally Posted by seneca18
