The new ipad 64GB selling at US$699 and the TF700 tablet alone is US$599. It is still cheaper considering that it is a top notch tablet.

However, US$149 for the keyboard dock cum battery is on the high side.

However, based on current exchange rates it should be cheaper but you still need to pay shipping & taxes.
S$1099 vs S$918 for both 64gb.

Not sure if the dock is included, if not, then that's S$180 of extra hurt.

looks nice cept no 3G. and a bit bigger (good and bad)

from Asus' facebook they saying it will include the dock?

"Dear all, Transformer Pad Infinity as posted above will have both colors available and keyboard dock is included. Right now, TF700T is 64GB and comes with Wifi features. Other variations like 32GB and/or 3G version shall be announced once we have the information. "

worthwhile to trade computing power for 3g? will the quadcore be used at all?

"Globally, ASUS will sell 3G and 4G LTE models of the Transformer Pad Infinity. Both of these versions use a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Krait dual-core processor instead of the Tegra 3 quad-core chip that powers the Wi-Fi only model."

very good performance comparison, thanks.

and beerope you have a problem? being unsure of the specs and 1 having quadcore gives me the impression that it better performs (and as we can see, it does better perform in many aspects).

i have used snapdragon on an acer before... after which i failed both the acer and the snapdragon.

That was just because they were on 2 different phones. Take a look at this vid, S4 One X vs Tegra One X

AT&T HTC One X vs Tegra 3 One X (Benchmarks) - YouTube

either way Asus has not mentioned anything about the 3G version......... which is bad because it maybe coming out only like more than 3 months from now (possible)

Overall, I am happy with the TF700.

The Pros

Screen - It is excellent but need more apps to support it. I tried a number of Tegra 3 optimized games and it is beautiful but battery life shortened by a fair bit. Reading ebooks on Kindle is really pleasing for my aging eyes.

Battery Life - For daily use, I have bluetooth turned on permanently for internet connection linked to my S3, both devices can last me a good 8-10 hours with moderate usage.

Entertainment - The device is great for watching movies, 3 full length movies and with some juice left. Vibe Fun Centre gives me free music.

Camera - Shots are pretty good and clear. Good enough for any novice. Of course, the screen makes the pics look good as well.

Keyboard Dock - This is a must if you need to do serious work like typing a proposal or long email. Besides, the multi touch pad, it has a USB port, a SD Card slot and built in battery to give you up to 14 hours of usage.

The TF700 comes with Splashtop Remote Desktop which you can remotely access your Windows PC. It is a no brainer to set up. As for me, I am using Mac, so it does not make a diff. Having my office docs sync across my mac and tablet is the solution for me. It also comes with free cloud storage which I use to sync my pics but I am using Gdrive for my office docs.

The Cons

1) The device is speedy but I there are still IO issues that still exist. I get occasional "wait or force close". This is where the Ipad never fails me.

2) Wifi signal is weak compared to my Macbook, Ipad and S3

3) DLNA performance is below par

4) Overall, price is on the high side.
