Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is currently the most discussed tablet with high expectations about its features and performance.

It is considered to be better than its predecessor, Asus Eee Pad Transformer.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, which runs on Nvidia's new Tegra 3 chipset, with its quad-core CPU clocked to 1.3GHz, is a highly powerful tablet. It has a 1 GB RAM and Nvidia's ULP GeForce GPU. On the other hand, Asus Eee Pad Transformer runs on a dual-core 1GHz CPU, 1GB RAM and a ULP GeForce GPU.

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime has an excellent 8-megapixel primary camera which offers autofocus, LED flash and geo-tagging, as well as 1080P video capture.

In addition to the primary camera, Asus has also fitted the tablet with a 1.2-megapixel secondary camera which ensures high quality video calling. Its predecessor has 5-megapixel camera with 720P video capture.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer has 271 x 171 x 13 mm dimension and weighs 680g. Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime has 263 x 180.8 x 8.3mm dimension and weighs 586g. Also the prime offers up to two and a half hours more battery life.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer has a 10.1-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD screen that operates at a resolution of 1280 x 800 and has a pixel density of 149PPI. Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime features a Super IPS+ LCD touchscreen that operates at the same resolution as its precursor and also offers the self-same pixel density. It benefits from Gorilla Glass known for its qualities of strength, scratch resistance and thinness.

Without any doubt, these highlights give an upper hand to the Prime.
