So should you buy the Transformer TF101G?Well, you’d be a massive fool if you did, and it’s not because of the pricing. The next version, dubbed the Transformer Prime is due to arrive anytime before 2011 ends (hopefully) and it will pack in Nvidia’s spanking new Tegra 3 processor or Kal El, which will make it the first ever tablet to sport a quad-core heart. It will also be more than twice as fast as the current Transformer (if these scores are to be believed). We suggest you hang on your wallets for a little while longer. If anything, at least we can expect a nice price drop for the current one once it launches.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
