iPad vs Transformer Pad = One Clear Winner

If you're on the fence about a tablet and you are considering the iPad, make sure you take a look at the recently-released ASUS Transformer Pad TF300.  PCMag compares it to the new iPad in terms of specs and price and it's a pretty good bargain - all things considered.  It has twice as many cores - running faster and has longer battery life - is lighter and has better cameras.  The new iPad just trumps in screen resolution - but the ASUS dominates - and comes in at $120 less.

Based on these comparisons of 16 GB devices in similar 10-inch sizes, the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 comes in at $120 less than the iPad at $379, but with a much lower resolution display and no option for 4G wireless networking. The Asus is Wi-Fi only. Look closely below to compare and contrast.
