If you've any familiarity with Asus tablets, you'll likely recognize this design. It's virtually the same one Asus has used for its Android Transformer line for the last two years. This is the Asus Transformer Pad TF701T, and while it packs useful features and great performance into its $449 body -- the keyboard is $150 extra -- its design is getting long in the tooth.
The design of the optional keyboard hasn't changed much in the last two years and thanks to the Surface 2 and myriad Windows 8 tablets and hybrids, my standards for tablet keyboards have only gotten higher. This doesn't cut it anymore.
