Asus Transformer Pad vs. Apple iPad
Meet the Transformer Pad 300 — the latest Android tablet from ASUS that’s designed for everyone. Everyone who may be in the market for an alternative to the iPad, that is. The tablet has a 10.1-inch screen, Google’s Android 4.0 operating system and a quad-core Tegra 3 processor from Nvidia running at a clock speed of 1.2GHz.

Asus has priced its new tablet at US$379.99 for 32GB of storage and 1GB of RAM, more than $100 below the iPad 3. Though most features are similar to those available in its predecessor, the Eee Pad Transformer Prime, the starting price is lower. Among the new features are GPS capabilities and the new OS is pre-installed.

The display shows images at a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, and the Tegra 3 chip enables a strong gaming experience with 12 integrated graphics cores.
