Asus Unveils First Quad-Core Tablet, Eee Pad Transformer Prime

That must be the reason why the original Transformer is sold 100$ cheaper at some places in the past week. Me want the new one! :o

It will be interesting to see if the quad-core makes a noticeable difference in day-to-day tasks (in other words, anything other than gaming). Until we have apps optimized for quad-core, I don't think it will make that big of a difference for a lot of people.

Depending on price point I am buying one

If its a huge premium over the first one, I'll just stick with the original

Edit: 100 bucks more expensive. Maybe too much to bother with

I think it is roughly the same price, but they seem to have dropped the smallest 16 GB model.

Just picked up my transformer prime last night. Haven't played with it much yet but feels great

The only thing that urks me with my Prime so far is the browser. It seems to shut down many times. If it's not the browser, it's the Prime itself. There is a lot of buzz on the net about this issue. Rumours are ASUS are working on a patch to solve it. Not holding my breath for it yet.

I haven't had any real issues yet. downloaded a few games, most notably Dungeon Defenders, and it looks and plays fantastic

looks as good on the transformer as it does on my i7 laptop

I have had my transformer prime for a week. The first few days it was running property. Now it has locked up, re-booted on its own , the browser quits often, and the camera app locks up.

I hope the .14 update will fix this. I expected more from Asus.

Danster 2012-02-19 06:45 PM

Where did you hear about a .14 update?

BGY11 2012-02-19 07:26 PM

Fond a note about it on Android Central:

Just applied the .14 update. GPS, Wi-fi are also updated.
I hope this makes it run properly...

Danster 2012-02-20 06:36 PM

Tell us if you see a big change or not. Hope it fixes the browser from crashing all the time.

Digital_Frank 2012-02-20 07:06 PM

About 5 hours use and the browser has not crashed and the system has not re-booted.
Wifi seems the same, but GPS performance seems a little lower.
