Asus Transformer Comparison

Device & Specs

Most obviously, the biggest difference in device is the fact that the Transformer was built around being able to use a keyboard that connects to the machine to augment its natural performance, while the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet is simply a tablet. We'll leave it up to you what you'd like more in a tablet, but the Transformer is slightly lighter, and less blocky.

Screen

The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 's screen does not quite perform as well as the Transformer's in terms of color gamut, contrast, and reflectivity, but don't take that to mean that either are great, or that the difference is huge; the comparison is largely academic.

Battery

The Transformer has a better battery life, made even longer by the optional keyboard accessory that carries its own battery as well.

eReader

Because the Transformer has an easier-to-hold form factor and a better battery than does the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet, users looking for a longer reading session will find that the Transformer will probably suit them better than the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet.

Internet

Because both tablets are Android 3 devices, they have similar internet capabilities, and the differences between the two are negligible, as they both have full access to the Android Market.
