    TF700 vs TF701 vs T100 vs Vivo Tab

    Hi. I'm hoping to replace a five year old ATOM netbook. It was the cheapest but also the most robust and reliable machine I've ever owned. Sling it in a backpack, throw it in a bike basket, drop it from a table. No problem. I don't necessarily expect such devoted service from the convertible I go for; I just really like the form-factor. My current machine is a UX31A, which is great but a little too cumbersome to want to transport regularly. Recently picked up a Nexus 7, which is great for on-the-go media and news browsing, but in terms of productivity, has a cramped screen and no keyboard.

    I've been watching the Transformer line for over a year now. It's clearly the best replacement for my now-dusty netbook. The current incarnation is the one to which this subforum is devoted: the TF701. If this post belongs elsewhere, please Mods forgive me.

    I'm looking for advice and explanations regarding choosing between these devices. For me, the price is not important, nor OS allegiance, nor newness. Please tell me which is preferable and why. I have arranged the relevant specifications as best as possible below.

    For my needs, certain things matter more than others. I'm an everyday user. I want my machine to be bright and vibrant, but it's more important that it's snappy. It's most important that its battery does well and I can rely on it to get through to the next charge with a minimum of downtime. I tend to use the device primarily as a media consumption device, but also very much value being able to rattle off a document unencumbered. I'm not so much a gamer as a web-browser. Snappiness and longevity are the names of my game. I also like the brushed aluminum look, and appreciate a solid looking and feeling device. GPS functionality and general reliability are also important.

    (please reply with any corrections)

    TF700 - ~$350 (+ ~$140 Dock) = $490

    Android 4.2 - 10.1" - Tegra3 1.6Ghz - 32Gb/64Gb - 1Gb DDR3 - 1 microSD, 1 SD, 1 USB2 - 1920x1200 Super IPS+ - Gorilla Glass 2 - 2Mp/8Mp - 9hrs/14hrs - 1.3lbs/2.5lbs

    TF701 - ~$450 (+ ~$145 Dock) = $585

    Android 4.2 - 10.1" - Tegra4 1.9Ghz - 32Gb/64Gb - 2Gb DDR3 - 1 microSD, 1 SD, 1 USB3 - 2560x1600 IPS - 1.2Mp/5Mp - 13hrs/17hrs - 1.3lbs/2.6lbs

    T100 = $350 (Dock included)

    Windows 8.1 - 10.1" - Atom 1.3Ghz - 32Gb/64Gb - 2Gb DDR3 - 1 microSD, 1 USB3 - 1366x768 IPS - 1.2Mp - 11hrs - 1.2lbs/2.4lbs

    Vivo Tab - ~$600 (+ ~$150 Dock) = $750

    Windows 8 - 11.6" - Atom Bay Trail 1.8Ghz - 64Gb - 2Gb DDR3 - 1 microSD, 2 USB2 - 1366x768 Super IPS+ - Fit Glass - 2Mp/8Mp - 11hrs/19hrs - 1.5lbs/3.0lbs

    ------

    What I'm looking for is not so much numeric benchmarks, but experienced anecdotal comparisons. Help if you can!

    I have been thinking about the same choice for my wife. I have been using a TF300 for the last year and it has met nearly all my needs. I think it depends on whether you need Windows or not, I have been using an Android transformer for a year now and not missed Windows at all. I have been looking at the T100 for the wife but have read some not so good reviews about its reliability and build quality, so I am erring towards the TF701 instead. Also bear in mind that Asus devices tend to start out pretty buggy and then get much better with software updates over time, so it might be best to wait a few months if you can.

    i made very similar list not long ago. T100 seemed like very interesting model until i found out that it doesn't have standard size SD card reader (quite important for me) and there is no extra battery in keyboard dock, just metal weights to keep device balanced. Tf700 was on top of the list for some time, as i have no need for super HD screen, but i think now TF701 is more 'future proofed'. if asus releases new versions of android, it will be more likely for 701 than 700. maybe not at first, but later, as older devices are being left behind, for sure.

    I tried out the T100 locally in a shop, it's pretty good actually. I don't know why they didn't include a battery in the keyboard dock, you would think that would have been a default. Also would have been nice to be able to upgrade the hard drive considering how much space Windows takes.

    I have the TF701 and I am very happy. But due to the price difference between that and the T100, if you are price sensitive then it's a toss up as the T100 is very competitively priced, surprisingly so.
