2. Asus Transformer Pad 300

We loved the original Transformer and then the Transformer Prime, and now Asus is adding a more budget-friendly member to the tablet family with the Transformer Pad 300. Like current models it runs on a NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor, but this time has a 10.1-inch IPS screen with a 1280x800 resolution. A 1.2=megapixel front-facing camera will cover video calls, while an 8-megapixel snapper should make for decent pics and HD recording. Crucially there is an optional keyboard dock which should ramp up the battery life from around 10 hours to an impressive 15 hours tablet time.
