The New iPad ‘3’ is without a doubt the best tablet on the market right now. Not only does it boast a class-leading GPU and quad-core graphics processing but its 9.7-inch Retina Display must be seen to be believed.
New iPad 3 alternative: ASUS Transformer TF300
In addition to improving on the features present in its predecessor, the iPad 2, the New iPad 3 also boasts 4G LTE. In fact, a recent test by AnandTech found that the New iPad 3 is capable of running a full 23 hours on a single charge when being used as a mobile LTE hotspot.
However the New iPad 3 is not for everyone and if you’re in the market for a tablet, your best bet after is Android. There are a range of Android tablets on the market but in my opinion nothing comes close to the ASUS Transformer TF300. Starting at just $399 which comes in a $100 below the New iPad 3, it boasts some serious hardware and capabilities the New iPad 3 doesn’t.
If you don’t mind opting for an optional keyboard dock, not only does it add an extra 5 hours battery life but also transforms it into a netbook. Specs wise, the ASUS Transformer TF300 runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and packs a NVIDIA Tegra 3 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 10.1-inch WXGA IPS capacitive pressure-sensing multi touch display, front (1.2MP) and rear (8MP) cameras, 32GB SSD, 1GB RAM, and boasts 10 hours battery life without the keyboard dock.
