I got my Prime just after Christmas and have read just about every forum and blog out there on the Prime. I am very surprised at the amount of people that have had problems or what I would call higher expectation regarding this tablet. I used mine at home, at work and on sales calls. I can tell you that I love my Prime and have not had one issue whatsoever. I can not speak for the GPS issues as I have never turned it on nor ever will. I use my Droid 2 and car mount for that.

Who else loves their Prime and why?

I still have my review unit (which I'm behind in getting my review) and I have to say that it's the best Android tablet available hands down. I will say that ASUS probably rushed this out to get ahead of the competition with the Tegra 3. All in all the bugs aren't too big of a deal, but it's bad press, and not what they need right now.

The keyboard is also sweet. ASUS is the king of Android tablets as far as I'm concerned. Will be interesting to see what Samsung comes up with at Mobile World Congress.

I have yet to purchase the keyboard as I wanted to use it as a stand alone tablet first. So far, I agree, it is the best android tablet out. I have been using it daily at work and I am leaning towards getting the keyboard sooner than later. The handwriting with a stylus is ok but I find myself using the screen keyboard more and more to take notes etc... A keyboard would make me that more efficient. The price tag is a little steep but will probably be worth it.

I completely love my prime. I started out with preordering both the 32GB and the 64GB versions and got my 32GB one like a month ago. I was having problems with the first one I got wich was of the BC serial numbers and my 64GB that I just got a couple days ago, a C1 serial number, has had zero problems at all. i am convinced the first batch of Primes were produced hastily and they finally ironed out the wrinkles with the newer batches. I would recommend anyone get this tablet for sure. hands down the best Android tablet available.

I don't own a TP but a buddy of mines actually picked one up and despite the high price tag, I gotta admit it's a smooth tablet. Probably one of the fastest units around. I'm curious to see how much better it can get once there's more optimized software for the processor as well as ICS. Otherwise it'll be limited like other tablets.

Like you Roy I agree at the feel of the TP but I am staying with my OG transformer because the Prime doesn't offer enough for me to switch or upgrade. I will wait until the HD displays come out. Waiting for Jelly Bean might be a factor too.

It's doubtful. At least in an official capacity. Maybe CM10 when it comes out but by that time I will be upgrading my tablet to the super 3d 1080p 16 core processor with 6G :P

I have both the TF 101 and 201...love them both.

As far as hardware goes, the Asus TFP made me turn from apple and not look back. Both my units have the dockable keyboard. Tegra 2 was cool, 3 kicks ass! Add in all the expansion with the USB ports, SD and mini SD slots along with the mini HDMI and I'd say the price was more than worth it.

I get so much design work done with the adobe proto and other adobe apps, my kids draw ad sketch, use the math and reading apps...what am I really missing not having yet another apple product?

Let the hipster doofuses sand in line for days for the ridiculously limited IPAD...I'm all in on ASUS.

My TF and TFP are irreplaceable.
Having researched thoroughly, I'm satisfied I made the perfect purchase
