Asus Prime Z270-A


The Prime Z270-A is one of Asus' best motherboards. Its £141/£181 price plants it firmly in the mid-range, and its specification is extremely well-balanced – it doesn't have the niche, high-end features that you'll find on extreme-level boards, but it...

The smart, well-balanced Asus board performs well in applications and pairs those results with a solid set of features and a keen price. It’s one of the best ATX boards on the market, and it’s easy to see why.

Asus Transformer Prime


The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime isn't a robot in disguise, but it does have a few tricks up its sleeve that any Autobot or Decepticon would be proud of. This new Transformer improves upon the original version from earlier this year, adds more power...

Design, Tegra 3 processor, updatable to Ice Cream Sandwich, detachable keyboard

Heavy when combined with the docking station, doesn't have ICS just yet

The performance of the Transformer Prime is top-notch. The design is stylish, and the addition of the keyboard is a great way of turning what many see as a consumption device into a creative device. The promise of an Ice Cream Sandwich update means...

Asus Transformer Prime review


It may be getting on, but don't underestimate the Prime

Light and portable ; Highly readable screen ; Fast processor ; Smooth HD video ; Great for games

Average camera ; Screen not as good as Galaxy Tab 10.1 ; Minor recording bugs ; Still pricey

The Asus Transformer Prime rocked up looking to build on the success of the original Eee Pad Transformer – offering up a tablet-come-netbook experience which created a whole new sector inside the tablet market.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime Review: In Depth


It's safe enough to refer to the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime as a victim of its own success. As well as being the first quad-core tablet to hit the market, it's the first tablet available for general…

Very fast, first quad-core tablet ; Slim, attractive tablet ; Durable with spun metal finish ; Keyboard dock adds a lot of function

GPS signal issues ; Keys on dock are shallow ; Camera captures washed out images ; Weighting when docked takes getting used to

Only available with its dock for now, but this is certainly the best Android tablet money can buy

The Transformer Prime puts Asus in an optimal position in the Android tablet race, as the first manufacturer to use the new Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset. As part of the Transformer line, the Prime can use a keyboard dock to become a makeshift laptop - in...

Asus Transformer Prime video review


Hands on with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich hybrid tablet

Asus has built the best Android tablet to date. The hybrid device comes with a 10.1in Super IPS+ screen, Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core 1.3GHz processor, keyboard dock and mammoth 18-hour battery life.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime Review


The Asus Transformer Prime is hugely impressive and thanks to its quad-core chip, it will offer far more when the heavy-duty software appears

Quad-core processor; great keyboard experience; top-quality snappers; desktop browsing experience; smooth performance and multitasking

Over-sensitive trackpad; lack of software that takes advantage of the quad-core chip

When you first see the Transformer Prime, it would be easy to think that it is just like the Galaxy Tab 10.1 – it looks similar, has the same OS and access to similar apps. But it’s what lies under the hood that makes all the difference. This is an...

Asus Transformer Prime review


Tegra 3 and ICS tablet is a winner

Great screen, superb build, swift performance, reasonable connectivity, excellent graphics, unmatched battery life, excellent value for money

Still not quite a laptop replacement, keyboard could be better, not all ICS features are available

An area where this device has an advantage above all other competitors is the battery life. The device has two sources of power - one in the display and the other in the keyboard dock.
