The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime has the beauty and brains. This is the first Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core powered tablet to hit this year. With its shiny metal body and dock keyboard this laptop will transform into a laptop. Many think that this is a laptop if there’s a dock attached. The Nvidia Tegra 3 performance is twice as fast that of its predecessor the Nvidia Tegra 2.
