Asus Eee Pad Transformer

The Good At $350, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is one of the lowest priced full-sized, Android 4.0-upgradable tablets. Also, its high-quality screen and relatively cheap keyboard/dock make it an attractive option.

The Bad A few things keep the Transformer from completely blowing us away: the choppy recording and playback of the camcorder; its sharp edges; a build quality that's somewhat lacking; and problems that arise when docking.

The Bottom Line The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is a low-price, quality Android tablet with useful options.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer

Editors' note (May 14, 2012): The Eee Pad Transformer is now upgradable to Android 4.0; however, those interested in this product should also check out the new step-up version, the Asus Transformer Pad TF300.

Tablets are still a hard sell to most, but one of the most important factors is price. The lower the price (without being too low to raise suspicions of quality), the more likely consumers are willing to part with their money.
