Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime

CNET rating: 4 stars out of 5 (Excellent)

The good: The Asus Transformer Prime sports an iPad 2-inspired design that's even thinner and nearly as light, while also managing to include microSD and Micro-HDMI support. The Prime delivers smooth and clear 1080p video, and the 8-megapixel camera captures detail and color more accurately than any other tablet camera we've reviewed. Ice Cream Sandwich makes small but significant improvements to Honeycomb.

The bad: Not every game takes advantage of the quad-core CPU, and frame rates can suffer as a result. When connected to the dock keyboard, the tablet is top-heavy and can easily slide off a lap or table if you're not careful.

The cost: $499.99 to $565.00

The bottom line: The Asus Transformer Prime is the best full-featured Android tablet yet, with a sexy design, thoughtful features, and an impressive camera.

Tablets that go where the new iPad doesn't

The new iPad is nearly upon us and will likely be an excellent continuation of the line. It doesn't do everything, though, and what it lacks in features and affordability, these tablets attempt to make up.
