    Do I need a dock?

    I know it is a great accessory.

    I have a tf101, generally, I use it on subway for reading news. At home, I use my laptop. My understanding is dock provides three major benefits:

    1: keyboard, but since I just use it to read news or website, so touch screen keyboard is enough
    2: battery, I probably use 3 hours per day, so I guess I can charge it at home
    2: USB, this is interesting: I know I can transfer file by wifi through some apps such as ES file explore, but USB 3.0 transfer speed is much faster, so if I have a big amount files to transfer, then I will be beneficial from dock, otherwise, in my case, seems I don't really need dock?

    Did I miss anything?

    Thanks in advance

    I only use my dock when I'm typing something very long. It normally sits on my nightstand getting dusty.

    I use a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard, much less expensive than a dock and the keyboard is slightly bigger which is a benefit for me since I have large hands.

    USB 3.0 transfer speeds will be limited by the speed of the NAND flash inside the tablet. I've use both USB cable transfer and the app called: WiFi File Explorer. Both rates
    of transfer are about the same.
    I never learned from a man who agreed with me.
