The Tech Report has had a while to form an impression of the utility of the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, the tablet and smartbook hybrid device that was first shown at CES. More than just a quick review of the capabilities, this article covers a month of actual usage. The keypad dock, which is how the tablet transforms into a smartbook was perhaps the only letdown for The Tech Report, the quality was a little lower than on an nondetachable netbook. The screen on the other hand was a big factor in the positive feelings that this review shares, being able to play 720p HD video without scaling is a big thing. Read on, and start thinking of saving up the $400-$500 you need to pick one up.
"Asus’ Eee Pad Transformer may cost $100 less than the competition, but you wouldn’t know it from using the thing. I’ve spent more than a month with one, and there’s much to like about this tablet/smartbook hybrid."
