So looking at the Tablet craze that consumers are on these days, it appears that this Asus Transformer Prime is one of the most popular models on the market. For good reason. Able to show 1080p video and a Quad core processor are a couple reasons for this. Not to mention, the docking station (sold separately) that essentially allows you to more easily use it as a PC. With an 18hr battery life, there are several reasons this thing beats out the iPad 2.
