    but i will get a nexus 7...
    but i will be keeping the 101 until a big enough performance bump comes along...

    jmho...
    Screen cracking? On which model? The original transformer prime seemed sturdy to me...plus gorilla glass which the 300tthe doesnt have

    (Really anarox!!!)

    The simple difference is this...

    Tegra 2 = dual core
    Tegra 3 = quad core

    Both have more processing power than a typical tablet needs. You could also consider the Acer Iconia A510.

    Plastic case
    - pros - scratch resistant, good wifi & gps signal
    - cons - its plastic

    Metal case
    - pros - stylish, looks nice
    - cons - interferes with wifi & gps signal, scratches easily

    The best answer for you is to set a budget. Know what you want to do with the device & why - then review all the possibilities & make as informed a choice as possible. The research is more fun than the purchase in many ways.

    MobileTechReviews on YouTube are very good reviews of this type of thing. Lisa does a great, honest, informed & balanced job of her reviews.

    Good luck with your choice

    Tell that ro my tablet mate, It crashes when rendering big pdfs. This happens on all pdf apps.. Really disturbing when reading and taking notes. In my opinionen because non of the apps are optmizied for tegra or even ics, tegra 3 is needed to overflow power to get it stable. This is why it works better on tegra 3, more power can be wasted on the rendering. Tegra 2 is a good cpu, if you have optimized apps... Which there are non available . My advice again is get tegra 3 to overcome this problem.

    I think 300 has no gorilla glass, if you are active with your tablet alot then wait for infinity.

    Okey this is offtopic but I went for another pdf reader hunt and I found one that was optmized for arm7. It seems like it is also optmized for arm6 because Im getting an double increase in speed and stability when reading the same pdf. This app is called radaee

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...?id=radaee.pdf

    This is a good example of optimized vs not optimized, onlh thing missing is highlighting. Wow really an improvement vs the other readers

    Which readers did you try? I just tested on the only PDF i had on my mem card (a map for hospital visitors). This one is nice, but I actually found ASUS MyLibrary to have the smoothest framerate while scrolling. The only thing I don't like is its slower scrolling speed ( distance), especially zoomed in. Radaee seems to do a great job here (kinetic scrolling). Amazon Kindle app was by far the worst, hanging often.

    I'd rank them:

    1. Asus MyLibrary
    2. Radaee
    3. Polaris office
    99. Amazon Kindle ( terrible)

    A lot of manufacturers just released new tablets with dual core processors. How long these tablets will be around I'm not sure. My guess is that they will get replaced this holiday season. But the Samsung galaxy tab 2 and Xoom 2 both have a dual core and are as expensive or more expensive than Asus and other brands with quad core chips. This tells me were either not done with the dual core or their trying to make extra profits. Either way right now its not worth laying down 400 dollars for last years technology. I don't like Asus anymore so I'm just going to wait out the summer and see what comes and get announced. I have my hopes up for the 700.

    My rank:
    1: Repligo PDF reader (most capible with annotations, only highlighting and note)
    2: Radaee (fastest but no annotations)
    3: Ezpdf, used to fastest, has best annotation tools : freehand drawing and writing, notes, circles, rectangles, highlighting, flatten annotions (incorperate into pdf) etc etc. It is still stuck on non gpu rendering because of backwards support to older devices, but with ics this causes crashes and freezes and long time for rendering. Can be the king of pdf, but has major problems. I would rank Ezpdf as the high an iannotate (except for multiple pdf reading) if it were stable

    Im using Lippincott pharmacology 83 mb/ 600 pages, text and pictures in color.
