From this angle, the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 looks almost indistinguishable from the Transformer Prime.

The TF300's plastic back has lots of thin grooves, but that doesn't really give it more grip.

The Prime (on the left) is still the thin king. The TF300 (middle) is even thicker than the "now with slightly more girth" new iPad (right).

Here's a good angle on the TF300's Micro-HDMI and microSD slots.

The TF300 is still powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 and, yes, it still melts faces. Relatively so.

Some would say the Prime had some GPS "issues." Others would say GPS didn't work at all. Thanks to its plastic body, the TF300 had no problems accessing satellites (when outside) in my testing.

Without the Super IPS mode from the Prime, the TF300 is much more susceptible to our old tablet enemy, the sun.

When inside, under controlled lighting conditions, you'll thank the tablet gods for glossy screens. Outside, not so much.

The TF300's keyboard dock works pretty much like every other Transformer's, giving you the option to leave touch-screen typing in the stone age. Or, the future, I guess.

A full-size USB port is only available on the keyboard/dock.
