Arenít you curious which of the Acer Iconia Tab A700 and Asus Transformer Infinity Pad TF700 is more superior? When it comes to design, the Infinity Pad TF700 is more superior because of its aluminum unibody design that looks really sleek. Compared to this, the Iconia Tab A700 looks dull because of its box-like appearance and dull plastic and rubber exterior. The TF700 is also more portable with its 1.3lbs weight compared to the A700ís 1.47lbs. It also comes with an optional dock with touchpad and keyboard to make typing easier.
The battle is draw when it comes to the display. Both tablets have the same 10.1-inch display bearing 1920 x 1200-pixel resolution. But if brightness will be the basis of superiority, the Infinity Pad TF700 is has higher brightness and thanks to its IPS mode.
The Infinity Pad TF700 offers faster performance because powering it up is a quad-core 1.6GHz Tegra 3 processor supported by 1GB DDR3 of RAM whereas Iconia Tab A700 only has a quad-core 1.3GHz Tegra 3 processor with 1GB of DDR2 RAM. Both are quad-core but the TF700 is clocked at a much higher speed.
Looking for more tablet options perhaps? Sony has one that you might like! Itís called the Sony Xperia Tablet S! Donít worry this is different from the Tablet S that Sony released last year. Not many liked that tablet much so the company ensured the new Xperia Tablet S is much more improved.

The Asus Transformer Pad TF300 and the new iPad are both sleek tablets that are worthy to be compared with each other.
One of the factors that people consider in a tablet is its size and weight. A lot of them opt for one the lighter one to be carried around easily. In this regard, the winner is the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 since it weighs 546 grams compared to the new iPadís 652 grams.
But when it comes to appearance, the new iPad has a more premium look and feel because it is made of high-quality aluminium whereas the Transformer Pad TF300 is made of plastic.
But the Transformer Pad TF300 has an advantage over the new iPad due to the fact that it comes with an accompanying dock, which composed of a full QWERTY keyboard and a touchpad, of course at an additional price. With the dock attached, the tablet can already work like a netbook. The dock itself has a 16.5Wh Li-polymer battery that provides up to 5 hours of power.
