Handling

This tablet is thin. Half a millimeter thinner than the iPad and Xyboard, the Asus Transformer Prime TF-201 is possibly the thinnest tablet we've reviewed thus far. As such, there are a couple issues we need to touch on, mainly the fit of the tablet in your hand due to that thickness, and the fact that the tablet is built around being able to click into a keyboard accessory that makes it more laptop than tablet. Because the tablet is so thin, the weight is more or less evenly distributed, which causes some leverage problems when held with only one hand. Thankfully, the tablet is light, but for long sessions of use, the keyboard accessory might be ideal.
