Asus Transformer Prime

The Asus Eee PadTransformer Prime seems to be on every tablet-lover's wish list, including ours.

Not only is it as thin and light as a Samsung Galaxy Tab or iPad, its battery life should be comparable as well. What sets this tablet apart, however, is its NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor (swoon). It will be the first Android tablet to use such a zippy processor, so we're all pretty excited to get our hands on one when they ship, which is rumored to be in the next week or so.

Further distinguishing itself is the optional keyboard, which will turn the tablet into a sleek netbook, and extend its battery life. This second generation of Asus Transformer is a tremendous aesthetic improvement over the previous effort, and will likely be a very serious contender in the tablet arena.

Check out how far the Eee line has come since it started the netbook craze back in 2007 with a review from Shawn Powers.

Asus Transformer currently retails for $499.
