Asus Transformer Prime

My latest technology investment arrived today, courtesy of eBuyer's Saturday delivery service - the Asus Transformer Prime. I was always a big fan of the original Transformer and the new one has moved the game forward considerably.

Ignoring any of the technical changes and improvements, the Prime is a perfect example of a device which is a joy to use and will bring a smile to user's faces when they start to use one. The chassis is spun-aluminium and feels beautiful to the touch. Android turns out to make a wonderful operating system for a laptop device and the speed is something that has to be seen to be believed.

From a technical, aesthetic and usability point of view there's nothing stopping the Transformer Prime becoming as big a hit as the original EeePad... whether enough customers are ready to look past the iPad and go for something different remains to be seen...
