    Transformer Pad Infinity 700 (Wifi) [non-existent product that we are comparing here, but that's the way it always is with Android, and when the device does hit, you can't find it, and then when you do find it, its got bugs galore]

    Bigger screen (lopeside screen that only works well for movies)
    Super IPS (burn through battery quicker0
    microSD, up to 32 GB (less total memory)
    8 MP (it's a tablet)
    LED flash
    (it's a tablet)
    Stereo speakers (like stereo works on a tablet!)
    Faster CPU (Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A9) (needed to run the clunky Android OS)
    GPS (er, are you sure ASUS can engineer a GPS into a tablet -- look what happened last time)
    Adobe Flash (er, yesterday's dead tech, and trying to run it makes Android clunkier)
    Official mobile dock (increases Battery Life, USB Ports) (add $150 to base price, but why didn't you buy a laptop in the first place, fanboi)
    Plug and play (connect USB peripherals such as game controllers, external hard drives, digital cameras) (er, there is no real USB port anymore, you have to get an extra cable!)
    Syncing is not required (not required on my iPad, either)
    True Multitasking (really, is that what you call that?)
    More Customization
    (so much so that you spend all your time doing nothing but customizing....instead of doing anything real)

    I'll still probably buy one...

    Flash may be still supported but it's widely recognised as being phased out on android. My Samsung sgs2 on ICS doesn't want to know.

    The iPad has native RAW photo support for a significant proportion of most major camera manufacturers. That's why I went for it, and the IPS panel over a year ago.

    I would compare benchmarks rather than processors. Given the two tablets run two different o/s comparing chipsets in isolation doesn't mean very much?

    Yes, it runs smoother. It is less "fiddly" , apps don't FC as much. There third-party support is huge in comparison since vendors don't have to develop for zillions of models in different sizes and shapes.

    And you need to look at your own self for HATE. The way you wrote your post just says it all day. I plan to own a 700 and I already own a 3.

    Yea i Know That apple products are more smooth in general because of their simplified operating systems, but apparently the Prime with ICS is pretty smooth also, but im gona say its a tie because sometimes the ipad runs/opens things faster and sometimes the Prime is faster, so they cancel each other out
    This is a good video to watch on that
    Yea I looked at the bench Marks the Ipad3 has a Faster GPU while the Transformer has a faster CPU

    Dont u need to sync with iTunes to update, sync content, and more? like u cant just drag and drop music files ect?

    I heard that guy saying some of the same stuff I wrote above.....and he talks about april for he HD prime....but where is it?

    But I the iPad as more of an rf window on back than the prime...and the wifi is compromised on the prime, as is the gps and Bluetooth...he ignored all that.....and look at how The screen rotates on the iPad....but it just appears on the prime.....I think someone is playing games with ICS to make it look faster and smooth. It is not. The config on the ICS is a bit of a pain....

    Now...you don't need iTunes to update....you don't need to sync content... And you drag and drop from iTunes as you do from a file manager with android. But you don't need a wire at all to use the iPad....you don't have to connect it to a pc at all if you don't wish to. I rarely connect mine.

    If I was a hater it would be of apple and iOS, though in comparing an android tablet and iPad it's clear the iPad is years ahead in usability and construction.

    Super IPS is much less than super if you read how the tech works you'll find it actually has less sub-pixel resolution than IPS screens. Therefore not as sharp at the same resolution never mind color accuracy.

    Also the screen on the iPad is actually bigger in terms of area. The android tablets only have longer screens.

    The camera on the iPad is superb. And if you know anything about photography you would know that resolution is hardly the most significant thing in terms of screen quality.

    The iPad is plenty fast. How much faster would you want than instant response? In my experience with android it had significant response issues.

    And I will not even go into the state of apps for iPad vs Android tablets.

    For those reasons the iPad won me over.
